Easter Treats – Bird nest
Holidays are more fun when food is involved. We made fun Easter Treats - a birds nest. All the items included are edible which makes it perfect for an easy craft or for a festive centerpiece if you put a few in a row.
For some reason edible treats are always more fun. Depending on the person it is either more fun to create or more fun to eat. This one didn't turn out exactly as I had planned in my mind, but my kids still love it. I adjusted the size and it worked a lot better.
Easter Bunny Crafts
Easter is almost here and I want to share these easter bunny crafts that are cute as well as functional. Easy crafts are the best, especially when you are crunched for time. This easter bunny craft can be made within 15 minutes after gathering supplies. Don't worry most of the supplies are common crafting items.
My kids are loving the EOS chapsticks. I'm not sure if it is because of their very distinct shape or because all their friends seem to have at least one. They have been begging ...
7 Different Types of Easter Scavenger Hunts
One of my favorite things about Easter is hunting for eggs. When I was young I searched for plastic eggs as well as wrapped candy and jelly beans. While Easter Scavenger Hunts are not the purpose of Easter, it is a fun tradition that I have continued with my kids. I love watching my kids become excited about the hunt before and during the easter hunt. Another way I prepare my kids to have an even better holiday is through different Easter Ideas such as a printable countdown, melted crayon ...

Easter Egg Planter
When we made a trip to the local dollar store for supplies for our Easter Egg Door Decoration we picked up a few other supplies. You know when you have an idea so you buy a few supplies even when you are not sure if it will work out or not? That is what we did. This craft actually took about 10 minutes. We wanted to create something before school so we put this together. The girls were overly excited to help this time.
Mini Easter Basket
A couple years ago, I believe it was, I saw a post where a pop top can was opened from the bottom. It was cleaned out, refilled and a label was put on the outside for a christmas neighbor gift. I can't remember where I saw it, but here is another example with the instructions on the can portion. With the beginning of an idea from my mom I decided to use one of these cans I still had stashed away to turn it into an Easter basket.

Easter Egg Stitches
Last year I taught my Little Chefs how to stitch on a plastic canvas to make these fun Stitched Easter Eggs. I showed them how to do each stitch and then let them loose. They created these on their own. (Actually, I did thread and rethread the yarn over and over and over again as it was pulled out of the needle.) They did ALL of the stitching. This is why this piece of art was displayed in our home for a very long time. They were all extremely proud of their work!
Today I thought I'd share ...

MELTED CRAYON EGGS
Melted Crayon Eggs – Coloring Easter Eggs
Melted Crayon Eggs is a PERFECT way of coloring easter eggs quickly. In fact its a great way to color a lot of eggs at once. I just love easy crafts! Remember when Little Chef D enjoyed making her Butterfly Melted Crayon Art? We learned from that experience that grating crayons is a hard and long task if you do it by hand, but the result of melting the crayons is beautiful. We wanted to apply that technique to eggs.

Easter Bunny Pancakes
Did your mom always tell you to not play with your food?! Well, for this Easter Breakfast, we wanted to get the kids involved. What better way to have our Easter breakfast than with pancakes. And to make it even better, let the Little Chefs make them into Easter Bunnies!
My Little Chefs LOVE pancakes. We eat pancakes not just for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner as well. This is why I needed to make a homemade pancake recipe that we loved. For this recipe I like to add and change ...
Stitched Easter Egg
Where did the idea of a Stitched Easter Egg come from? I was taught how to cross stitch by my Mom when I was young. I started with small easy projects and progressed to large ballet themed pictures with MANY colors and details.
I thought my Little Chefs were ready to begin learning this skill. Easter Eggs are so fun to decorate because there are no limitations. We decided to learn how to do a few simple stitches on egg shaped plastic canvas'.

Mandarin Orange Jello with Lemon Pudding
This family recipe comes from my mom! Growning up Mandarin Orange Jello with Lemon Pudding was a frequent side dish for our holiday and birthday dinners. Still to this day, I request my mom to make it for family dinner on my birthday. This recipe has now become one of my Little Chefs favorites.
Along with the colored eggs and baskets filled with candy, Easter also means a Honey Baked Ham for dinner. As we thought about what to go along with our ham, this childhood recipe popped into my ...
