Do you greet holidays head on, without abandon and dedicate weeks or months to creating the perfect crafts?
Well, I don’t. I have big dreams (thanks, Pinterest) and most often, I do nothing. Well, not nothing. I will play a song or add a dollar store wreath to the door.
That’s why I am so proud of myself. I have actually done two, yep, I said TWO, children’s Easter-related activities.
First, last week (way before Easter), we actually dyed eggs. I’ve wanted to do this forever, and even with my thirteen-year-old child, I think I’ve only managed to do it once. (I know, bad mom.)
And now, I was asked to provide snacks for my daughter’s class of all days. I was kindly reminded that today is the Easter party and asked if I could make the snacks a little special for the kiddos.
How can I deny my little girl some classroom joy?
Most of the treats I found online (thanks, Pinterest) were full of sugar: rice krispie treats, peeps, and chocolate eggs. Unfortunately, that’s not acceptable for this class or for me.
Also, I wanted to cut down on time and MONEY! I didn’t know want to spend too much on it.
So, I searched a little more and found these adorable goldfish carrots.
I had to make a little change and add my girl’s favorite snack is Babybel cheese. I also used Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies, instead of goldfish.
Easter Treat “Recipe”
So, this was super simple (and relatively inexpensive):
Cheddar crackers (I used Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies, Annie’s White Cheddar Bunnies and Goldfish. Target didn’t have enough Cheddar Bunnies for 20 treats.)
Here’s the finished product:
