It hardly feels like Easter is right around the corner. We have been so busy with company every week [including this week] that we haven't really done anything festive. That's why I posted the Easter Round Up last week in case you wanted to do something festive and needed ideas. Sometimes, holiday madness just has to take a back seat. Can't do to it all every year. It's been really nice just to enjoy the company of family and unplug for a tid bit. I did want to share these really cute snacks the little lady and I made for her school's Easter party. I found them on Pinterest and it's pinned on my Easter Board. Peep nests. Such a clever idea for whoever thought of it.
I love this snack because she was able to help me with it. We melted the chocolate and I dunked the pretzel sticks in the chocolate and used some tongs to get them out. Once the nest was created I let her put the yellow marshmallow Peep on and the Whoppers eggs. We had a great time as usual.
They were relatively easy to make and the teacher told me they were a HUGE hit with the kiddos. Granted they all had chocolate all over their faces, but that's the fun of being a kid. And don't worry healthy moms I also sent along some strawberries to balance all this sugar.
Last week I also shared some of the things in her Easter basket. I try not to fill her basket full of candy, but with fun little trinkets. I found those adorable little eggs at Dollar Tree and a lot of the stuff at Target's dollar section. Who doesn't love PEZ?!
Putting together an Easter Basket is like making an arrangement for me. I like for it to look pretty and I like it when you can see everything inside. If you are that way too and have some heavy things in the kiddos basket [like a new Bible] then fill the bottom with stones to keep it from tipping.
Put everything in and WALA a basket!
Other than the treats the only other thing we did was dye Easter eggs. Just a tradition in my family we have done year after year. Didn't they turn out so cute?!
Do you have any fun plans this Easter?
