Easter Recipes for Kids Parties

As a girl scout leader for many years and a homeroom parent for both of my children I have planned many Easter Parties.  You will find some great Easter recipes for kids Easter parties as well as links for games,  websites and creative basket ideas.

Easter Recipes

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Pretzel Rods
3 or more bags of melting chocolate
(depends on the number of kids)
Halloween Sprinkles
Wax Paper
 

Melt chocolate in crock pot on high stirring occasionally.  Once chocolate is melted have kids dip the pretzel into the chocolate and then into the sprinkles.  Give them a piece of wax paper to put it on to dry.

 

 Basket Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • Butter
  • 1 (6-ounce) package (4 cups) chow mein noodles
  • Jelly beans

Combine marshmallows and butter in 2-quart saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted (6 to 8 minutes). Stir in noodles until very well coated.

Press mixture on bottom and up sides of each buttered 12 cup muffin pan cup with buttered fingers. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.

Remove from cups; fill with jelly beans

Chocolate Basket Cookies

Ingredients

  • Shredded Wheat (or similar cereal)
  • Cooking chocolate
  • Mini eggs/jellybeans

Melt chocolate

Combine crushed Shredded Wheat with melted chocolate.  Press mixture on bottom and up sides of each buttered 12 cup muffin pan cup.

Once the chocolate has set, remove and place mini eggs or jelly beans into basket.

RECIPE INGREDIENTS:

A cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe)
White icing
Shredded coconut
Pink decorators' sugar
Jelly bean nose
Chewable Sweet Tart eyes
Large Marshmallow
MIni marshmallows

Frost a cupcake with white icing and sprinkle on shredded coconut.

Cut a large marshmallow in half widthwise. Squeeze each half slightly to give it an oval shape, then decorate the sticky side of each one with pink decorators' sugar and set them in place for ears.

Add a jelly bean nose and either jelly bean or snipped Sweet Tart eyes, and mini marshmallows for cheeks. For a finishing touch, draw on decorators' gel pupils or whiskers if you like.

Candy Necklace

Candy Necklace

I have made this many times will all age children.  Younger children will need a bit of help but kids all love it!

I would recommend that you make a sample so that you can judge how much candy and ribbon you will need to purchase.  That is the most difficult part of this project if you are making it for a group.  Also, you can vary it for different holidays by changing the color ribbon and candy used. 

Supplies

Plastic wrap (Saran wrap)
Individually wrapped Easter candy.
Pastel color curling ribbon cut into 6 inch strips

Instructions

Lay out three feet of plastic wrap, cutting it in half lengthwise.  Place a few pieces of candy every three inches.  The exact number will vary based on the size of the candy.  You want each section to look full.

Roll the plastic over the candy to cover completely and seal the candy in the middle.

Tie ribbon (knotted) between each section of candy.

Tie the two ends of plastic wrap together and cover the knot with another ribbon.

Finished product will be a great hit!

Refreshments:

Create Smoothies

You can even have ingredients and let the kids be creative and make their own.

Easter Milk

How about "pink", "blue" or "green" milk or milk shakes? Simply add food coloring.

 

Easter Egg Hunt Party Tips

Invitation: 
Use hollow plastic eggs filled with a paper containing party details.   You can send them via KID MAIL.

Egg Hunt:
Before guest arrive, check the weather forecast to make sure all is OK and then hide eggs in easy as well as difficult locations  throughout your yard. You want to keep them challenged but not so much that they get frustrated.

Bunny Path:
Create a path with "paw prints" to the location of the hunt.  A good thing to use outside to create prints is sidewalk chalk. Assign each child a color of egg to find, and/or limit the number of eggs each child can keep so no child gets left out. You may want to make colored necklaces for young children to wear so that they don't forget their color in the excitement.

Prizes:
Award special prizes for eggs rolled in glitter or marked by special stickers.

Easy Easter Basket Cookies

Recipe Ingredients:

Pillsbury slice and bake sugar cookie dough
Can of white Icing
Green Food coloring
Easter colored (pastel) M&Ms

Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick (BE SURE TO FLOUR SURFACE). Then using a round cookie cutter, cut the dough into 12 pieces.

Spray the inside of a muffin pan with Pam, and place a dough circle into each of the compartments.  You should not have any dough hanging over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Let cool for five minutes and then carefully remove from the muffin pan. 

When completely cooled decorate by filling each with a small amount of green icing to make it look like grass and then add about 5 M&Ms for Easter Eggs.


Easter Bunny Smores

Recipe sent in by Gina Foster

Ingredients
 
Graham crackers
Marshmallow Bunny Peeps
M&M's (Easter colors)
Brown Sugar
1 quart clear jar with lid
6X6 piece of Easter colored fabric or felt
12 - 14" piece of colored ribbon  to match fabric
1 sheet of colored paper to create a gift tag

Directions

Crush 1 sleeve of graham crackers into crumbs and put aside.  In 1 quart jar place on bottom 1-1/4 cup of Easter colored M&M's.  Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar. Gently press them against the glass but be sure not to squash them. Combine 1/3 cup of brown sugar and crushed graham crackers and place in a small Ziploc bag.  Seal the bag and gently place it in the center of the jar to support the bunnies.

Create Gift tag (see below). Cover the lid of the jar with the piece of fabric.  Punch a hole in gift tag and attach to ribbon.  Tie ribbon around jar to hold fabric in place.

Gift tag instructions:

Place contents of jar except bunnies into a bowl. Cut the marshmallow bunnies into small pieces and add to mixture.  Mix all ingredients together.

Melt 1/2 cup of butter and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.  Add this to the bowl and mix well.  Grease a 9" inch square pan.  Press mixture into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool and cut into squares.  (Makes 9 to 12).
