Let’s get started!
Easter Bunny Buns from OneLittleProject Make your own dough, use your mom’s bread maker or make your own. These little bunnies are sure to be sensation on the table, so make a lot! The secret to making the bunny shape is in using scissors to make two pinches for ears and poking two eyes with a toothpick.
Hummus and Carrots in a Pot from TotallyTots This is a very easy and nutritional snack. Kids can plant baby carrots themselves as a project or craft activity and pull them out as a snack later. Or it can be done beforehand, kept in fridge and served with love. Buy hummus or make your own by mixing drained can chickpeas, some lemon juice, salt and olive oil. Make a little hole with tooth pick on the top of carrots and stick parsley spring in it.
Babybel Bunnies from BlessedBeyondCrazy Babybel cheese balls are exciting as they are, but shaped into bunnies they will surely be a party favorite. Cut baby carrots in half for ears, cut a regular carrot in round pieces, then using a heart-shaped cookie cutter cut out noses. Use two chocolate chips, pointed side down, for eyes, and two white chocolate chips with pointed sides up for cheeks.
Egg Popsicle from AKailoChicLife These lovely and yummy refreshing fruit juice popsicles might be a bit more work, but watching the pleasure on those small faces will pay of every ounce of not-so-hard labor. Use thumbtack to drill a hole and a small funnel or piping tip to fill eggs with fruit juice. Let it freeze and voila!
Apple Bunny from KitchenFunWithMy3Sons A refreshing Granny Smith apple really is a treat in a vitamin-depleted time after winter. Have your serving of good stuff and get some for the kids, too. Cut out one crunchy green apple for bunny’s face and ears. Use edible grass for whiskers, Nutella for mouth and candy eyes, two mini marshmallow pieces for teeth, and a jelly bean for the nose.
Flower Fruit Pops from DollhouseBakeShoppe Quick, simple, healthy, and affordable. Did I forget to mention also a fun classroom activity! Use cookie cutters to cut our flower shapes out of watermelon, honey dew, cantaloupe or any other similarly soft fruit that is easy to cut. Use wooden skewers to make flowers.
