Easter is almost here. My kids are on Spring Break! It's nice to have this time off, but it's also a bit tough to get anything done with them here. Since there's no school this week, that meant we had school Easter parties last week. I was in charge of organizing the party for my daughter's preschool class. It didn't have to be anything too big. Just a snack, craft, and a book to read.
What little bunny doesn't love carrots? Especially when they're filled with cheese crackers! I used Stauffer's Whales which we think are so much better than Goldfish, but any kind will do. I've found Whales at Dollar Tree, Target and Big Lots. Annie's bunnies would be perfect but they are a bit pricey when I had to make these for a whole class.
No snack would be complete without a little juice. I cut yellow scrapbook paper to fit around mini juice boxes. I taped it in back and they stayed in place just fine. On the front I used sharpies to color in eyes and a chicky beak. So cute!
The kids all loved how cute the food looked. These would be the perfect table decoration for the kids table at your Easter feast. Plus the kids would have something to snack on while waiting for dinner.
The kids also decorated their own Easter eggs at our party. I found the plain white plastic eggs at Walmart and then let them be creative with markers and stickers. See how I made my Doodle Eggs here! It's fun to see how the kids all chose to decorate in different ways. Still need to decorate eggs? I love these doodle eggs since it elimates the big mess that comes with dying eggs. Have fun and be creative! Happy Easter!
