“Out of the basket” Easter Fun

I have been thinking about some fun things to do with/for my 2 and 6 year old for Easter this year aside from hiding and coloring eggs (which we will be doing as well). We have a family tradition of going to Keansburg, which is a local, small amusement part that celebrates it’s first day of the year open on Easter. I have found a few cute ideas that I may do this year in addition to that;

That funny bunny” – Similar to the elf on the shelf for Christmas time, you would make believe on Easter morning that the Easter bunny was naughty and transformed your family pictures into bunny families! I think this is very cute and the kids would have a fun time looking for the funny things the bunny did overnight while they slept.

Carrots are a treat” – Just like the Christmas tradition of leaving cookies for Santa, get a little healthy with leaving some carrots (and maybe some ranch dip!) for the Easter bunny. The kids will be excited to see the bite the bunny took out of it!

Cookies and Milk” – Enjoy some home made cookies & have a blast making them with your kids! This easy recipe consists of store bought rolled dough (sugar cookies), some tiny fingers creating paws, and a touch of corn syrup to wet and stick some pastel colored sugar sprinkles! Your children are sure to love these cookies, beginning to end.

Turn it up a notch and pair with some pastel colored milk (only a drop or 2 will do!) milk

Maybe some pastel pancakes….
