Easter’s almost here! Make some Fun Easter Food for your kids to enjoy! Here are a few simple & quick ideas from your truly!
Make this adorable peep muffin shown above! Use your favorite muffin recipe, then drizzle your finished muffins with a sugar glaze. Once cooled, cut out a small portion in the center of the muffin and stuff a peep in it.
Sugar Glaze Recipe
Yields 1/2 cup
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 3 Tbsp milk (more if needed. Can substitute with milk alternatives or water if needed, as well).
- Mix milk into sugar. (If needing more milk, add 1 Tbsp at a time until reaching desired consistency).
- Drizzle over muffin.
Hard Boiled Egg Chicks
To make the cute little chicks, hard boil your eggs as normal. Once cooled & peeled, cut in half. Cut small triangles out of cheese, and add black eyes with black edible markers.
Egg Carton Snack Tray
If you children eat a lot like mine do, you may need one of these per child!
This is such a festive way to snack, and my children ADORED it! Simply collect enough plastic Easter eggs to fill the size egg carton you have selected. (Because mine fit 12 eggs, I could have chosen 6 eggs and used both the tops and bottoms to fill. However; because I liked that the bottoms were wider, I used the bottoms of 12 plastic eggs.) Make sure you hand wash them before use. Then fill each egg with different snack goodies that your children enjoy!
Ideas for snack fillers
- Fruit pieces such as berries, grapes, or orange slices
- Dried fruit
- Cut block cheese
- Trail mix
- Cereal bites
- Mini sandwich bites
- Small crackers such as goldfish (or a healthier alternative)
Carrot Shaped Sandwiches
Are these not the most adorable sandwiches? Frankly, they could not be any easier to make!
Take each piece of bread and trim off edges, cutting them into narrow triangle shapes. Add mayo & mustard (or however your child prefers their sandwiches), top with turkey slices, and then shredded cheddar cheese. (Essentially, you end up with 2 open faced sandwiches). Place a piece of broccoli and the top of each piece. That’s it! I would recommend offering a dip for the broccoli! My children love hummus or Ranch dressing.
Dyed Deviled Eggs
So I know that eggs were involved in breakfast, but my children literally LOVE eggs. Especially hard boiled eggs. And deviled eggs are just flat out drool worthy to them! I made these adorable dyed ones just to add to our festivities! I found a great tutorial here.
Simple enough, right?! My kids absolutely loved it all, and everything was super fast and easy to make! I hope you were able to grab an idea or two!
