The hunt: Dying eggs with whip or shaving cream
What you will need:
- White eggs
- Neon colored dye
- Cool Whip or shaving cream
- Tooth picks or a knife
- Disposable gloves
Add the eggs to a large pot and fill the pot with water, covering the eggs. Bring the water to a boil. Turn the heat off and place a lid on the pot. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for 5 minutes, then drain the water from the eggs.
Add the cool whip or shaving cream to a cookie sheet, covering the entire sheet. Add drops of each of the colors of food coloring across the entire cookie sheet of cream. Then, use a toothpick or knife to swirl each colored circle together with the other colored circles.
Roll each egg individually in the cool whip or shaving cream mixture.
Set each egg on a paper towel to dry for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes are over, wipe the cool whip or shaving cream off the eggs with a dry paper towel.
When you're all done, you'll have beautifully colored eggs for your hunt.
Snack: Strawberry "carrots"
This is one you'll definitely get rave reviews for serving.
What you need:
- Pint of strawberries
- Orange-colored candy melts
Wash strawberries and allow them to dry on a paper towel.
Prepare candy melts as indicated in the instructions on the bag. Then, dip each strawberry very carefully into the melted candy mixture. Make sure to not cover the stem of the strawberry. Place the dipped strawberries on a plate.
Then, fill a small ziplock bag with the melted orange melts. Cut a small hole at one of the corners of the bag and drizzle the melted contents on each strawberry, as you see in the photo below.
Place the plate of strawberries in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the candy to harden. Once hardened, the strawberries will look like carrots.
Creativity: Easter basket alternatives
Rather than putting your little ones' Easter treats in their baskets, fill up something they'll use and enjoy all year round instead.
Take these rain boots for example.
And check out this baseball cap.
Both make super cute treat holders, plus they're sure to put huge smiles on your kids faces.
Game: Bunny ears ring toss
One child wears the inflatable ears and the other kids try to toss the ring onto one of the ears. It's a game your kids will want to play again and again. Find it on Amazon.
