I hosted an Easter Egg hunt over the weekend. The weather didn’t cooperate with sleet and rain causing activities to be moved in doors. The children still enjoyed the indoor Easter egg hunt and egg coloring.
I put together a treat table that included purple Peeps chicks in a nest of Whopper Robin eggs sitting on top of green tinted coconut flakes. The yellow Peeps bunnies were presented on skewers. I covered spring Oreos with candy melts in shapes of elephants, bears, monkeys and lions. My nephew loves Angry Birds so I made angry Chick cake pops for him. There were also Butterfly shaped sugar cookies decorated in blue, mint green, pink and yellow pastel colors with sprinkles. Ring pops and blow pops were presented in jars. The yellow chicks and bunny cupcakes tied in with the spring theme. There were also bags of sour bunnies and more robin eggs. Old left over jelly beans, gum balls, candy melts and nonpareils were made into trees for decorations. I also used sugar ice cream cones to make cotton candy cones out of them. There were also bags of popcorn and Annie’s bunny snacks. Apple juice bottles were presented with the same labels courtesy of Magnolia Easter Collection template. Each child went home with an Easter basket made especially for him or her. The children left with treats and visions of spring to come.
