Hippity Hoppity Easter is on it's way! I know, cheesy central, but it really is just around the corner! We've all been there. Just not enough time in the day to always do elaborate DIY decor or food for every party. I'm taking things back to our Easter egg hunt we threw for our friends and their littles two years ago. Overall, I kept things pretty simple(I had three kids, three and under, so had to--hah!) and kid-friendly with a little cute factor mixed in. Here's some springy inspo for your upcoming event!
chickee fruit bowls
Fruit cups + Sharpie = chickee fruit. Easy enough, right?
carrots your kids will eat
I used piping bags to achieve the triangular angle at the bottom, filled with yummy cheese balls and added the leafy stems, I mean, green tulle.
Take a perfect kid sized snack baggie and fill it with Chex mix, mini marshmallows and M&M's. Thank goodness they all went outside to get their sugar energy out for the egg hunt!
bunnies in a field
Nothing fancy here, just a good ol' pudding cup with crumbled Oreo cookies on top! Edible grass, Robin's Eggs and Peeps were courtesy of the holiday section at Target.
egg hunt decor
We have a lot of different areas in our back yard and I wanted to distinguish different spaces for the itty bitty littles and the elementary age kids doing the egg hunt. We used these cute signs from Target (I have seen a new version of again this year) in the open spaces used for the little ones to add fun flair. For the older kids, we hid the eggs more, using our two playgrounds, fence, and trees to give them more of a challenge.
Usually I like to go for more extravagant cupcake liners, but the standard baking set with the pink, blue, green and yellow colors was perfect for topping with the fluffy bunny tails, or cotton candy. Most stores carry bags or tubs of it this time of year, I used two to three of them since just a hand full per cup. Might have bought a little to snack on for myself as it's one of my fave things ever invented!
spring PB & Js
About half of the batch is standard triangle cut PB & Js and for the other half, I used a mini flower cookie cutter for a more fun shape. TIP: Many may know this lifesaving (for realsies when you have toddlers that have meltdowns over anything) tip already, but just in in case, I figured I'd share. For parties or lunch boxes where the sandwich may be sitting for a little longer than fresh, do a thin layer of peanut butter on both layers facing the inside. This avoids the mushy-gushy-jelly-soaked-through-so-my-toddler-can't-eat-it-anymore-because-it's-ruined-syndrome. Yeah, you have know that one!
