EASTER SNACKS AND PREP
5 Cute Easter Snacks for Kids (and Everybunny)
Are your little ones eagerly awaiting Easter’s arrival? Everyone loves that spring brings extra sunshine and warmer weather. The world feels brighter and lighter. And quite a bit sweeter!
Stores are filled with cute candies like jellybeans, chocolate bunnies, and colorful candy eggs. No matter which Easter candy is your favorite, nothing says Easter like sharing sweets and treats with family.
While you can purchase Easter chocolates and candies, it’s also fun to get crafty and make your own Easter treats. After all, there’s no better way to enjoy this spring holiday than by making and sharing creative Easter snacks. Here, you’ll find five adorable Easter snack ideas kids will love to make and eat!
Hoppin' Goody Bags
Combine crafts and yummy snacks by making goody bags. A simple cotton ball transforms a plain paper bag into a cute Easter craft. Fill them with your favorite Easter goodies like marshmallow Peeps and Cadbury eggs.
Another way to share delicious treats is with adorable artisan gift bags that can be reused over and over again. These beautiful bunny bags are as fun to use as a goody bag as they are for an Easter egg hunt.
Yummy Apple Rings
Top apple slices with frosting and pastel sprinkles to turn apples into the perfect Easter dessert. Let the kids decorate their own apple rings by setting up a toppings buffet with a bowl for each sprinkle color. Serve these sweet treats on seasonal plates like aqua salad plates.
Remember to dress your table with a chambray linen tablecloth that’s light, bright, and perfect for the spring season!
Tiny Carrot Garden
Create tiny carrot gardens with mini pots, hummus, baby carrots, sunflower seeds, and herbs. Fill mini pots with scoops of hummus and stick a few baby carrots in them. Garnish these little gardens with sprigs of parsley and seeds.
This Easter food idea is best enjoyed outside in the sun. Take your tiny carrot gardens to the backyard for an Easter picnic. Set up cozy outdoor chairs with brightly colored pillows and decorate the yard with darling bunny figurines.
Cookie cutters can easily transform fruit into a spring treat. Turn melons into butterflies, carrots, and bunnies and bring a smile to every kid’s face. Slice a variety of melons approximately half an inch thick and lay them out on cutting boards with all kinds of cookie cutter shapes.
Ripe melons are easy to cut with cookie cutters. Serve these tasty treats on a seasonal platter with cloth napkins and small plates to catch any juice! Another novel idea is to put these melon shapes on wooden skewers so the kids can eat them like Easter lollipops.
Pastry Bag Carrots
Plastic pastry bags, green string, and orange crackers are all you need to make these fun snacks. Simply fill the bags with festive bunny crackers and tie them off with crinkle-cut green string. No child can resist the cute crackers packaged with an Easter touch.
Easy to make, these pastry bag carrots are a handy Easter snack idea you can prepare ahead of time. These bright snack bags are also a perfect accent to table settings. Place them on top of plates or next to place card holders.
