In case you missed our copycat trial for Reese's Peanut Butter
the link for you again. This time, I'm gathering up some
popular Easter pins to prepare for the upcoming holiday. I have
chosen pins that are fairly easy to execute (and with kids no
those eggs! A simple sharpie can create frames for your child
to draw their own personalized artwork on each egg. I love this
idea because it gives kids a chance to be creative and artistically
draw on those little white curved canvases. We are decorating our
eggs on Friday and I think my older son will love this! This compilation of
egg decorating covers everything from Superheroes to authors
(think Eric Carle & tissue paper) to dripping colors. I love
taking a dozen eggs and mixing and matching to create something
beautiful. One of the biggest trends for egg decorating this year
has to be Chalkboard
Eggs - covering these delicate beauties in chalkboard paint and
going to town with personalized messages and pictures. Tweens &
teens would love something like this and it's a nice upgrade from
the usual crayon drawings.
Hosting Easter brunch or heading somewhere? Why not prepare some
lovely recipes to share? This pin
captures thirty quick and easy breads for Easter morning. Also, if
you haven't made Breakfast Mac
'n Cheese yet, you are definitely missing out. Easter brunch is
also the perfect time to try new Spring
Quiches and will wow your guests with something so simple. I
also think these baked eggs in
avocados would make a great addition to your table, not only
for taste, but for presentation. A personal favorite (and yummy)
would also have to be the Resurrection Rolls used to symbolize
Jesus' resurrection - made simply with butter, pre-made croissants,
some sugar and marshmallows make these a great object lesson.
Looking to keep those little hands busy while you fill eggs or
finish holiday dinner preparations? I have a few ideas that are fun
for your littles (and easy for you!) Recycled Egg
Carton Art is great for using up the extras in your craft
closet - leftover paint, little doodads and buttons, glitter, you
name it and let them create it! These would also look great as a
centerpiece. Paper Plate
Bunny - you can get them out of your hair by letting them draw
a hare! Finally, I think the retelling of the Easter story through
a carton of
eggs is just as clever and gets your kids involved in the
story. You can make your own carton pretty simply!
