We had an amazing Easter weekend this year. We had no showings, no huge engagements, just tons of family time (my favorite!). On Easter morning after the kidlets came down and hunted for their eggs and gifts, they got right down to business opening everything and testing it out!
Here they are playing the Oscar The Grouch Ants In A Can Game that my little girl received from the Easter Bunny. I am thrilled with this game because it is easy enough for my 2.5 year old to play AND I even think the game is FUN! Double whammy ;)
While the kidlets were busy checking out all their cool new stuff, I got busy making breakfast.
I made peanut butter and jam "Easter Egg" toast, which I cut out with a cookie cutter and used a medicine syringe (the kind that comes in your children's medicine) filled with jam to add the decoration to the "eggs". Our "Easter Bunny" is made out of tangerine pieces, blueberry eyes and prunes for the whiskers. Also, we had blueberries in an Easter egg cup and yogurt to complete the breakfast! It was a hit!
Since we had LOTS of time to do LOTS of fun stuff, we made all kinds of different Easter Eggs this year.
After all our egg decorated, we blew up Peeps in the microwave! I got this awesome idea from Bern at Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas. She does so many awesome experiments with Peeps and tons of other things. You can check out her site here. Thanks Bern!! The kidlets loved this experiment. My little guy kept jumping up and down as the Peeps got bigger and bigger. We started with one at 30 secs and went up from there.
Then of course, we had to see if they tasted any different...they do! It went down the hatch so fast, this is the only picture I got to take.
After all that fun, we made lunch. On the menu, "Easter Bunny" cheeseburgers, "Carrot" fries and some actual carrots. Again, I used a cookie cutter to make the bunny shape. I used a carrot slice for the nose and put ketchup in a medical syringe for the eyes and whiskers. The top of the fries "carrot" is a green pepper and the "carrot" lines are ketchup, again with the syringe.You can check out some of our other Easter Fun Foods here.
After lunch, we did some relaxing out side....
And then, time for another craft! We used crayons to colour our eggs and then painted them with water colours. Cut out our ears and head band and made an Easter Egg Bunny Hats!
