Chewable Sweet Tart eyes
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.
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.
Plastic wrap (Saran wrap)
Individually wrapped Easter candy.
Pastel color curling ribbon cut into 6 inch strips
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
You can even have ingredients and
let the kids be creative and make their own.
How about "pink", "blue" or
"green" milk or milk shakes? Simply add food coloring.
Easter Egg Hunt Party
Use hollow plastic eggs filled with a paper containing party
details. You can send them via KID MAIL.
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.
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.
Award special prizes for eggs rolled in glitter or marked by special
