Easter

Carrot Cupcakes with oreo DIRT topping, Oh my goodness how fun are these.... Cupcakes for kids, #easter, #SpringCarrot and  Oreo Cookie “DIRT” cupcakes

Are you having a garden party, or maybe a spring fling or Easter party. What ever the occasion might be these, Carrot and Oreo Cookie Dirt cupcakes are sure to be a hit! They are simple to make and turn out SO cute.

You will need
  •  24 cupcakes (I just used the box mix)
  • White frosting
  • 12 Oreo cookies crushed
  • 36 orange Starburst
  • Bag of Rips candy (green for the carrot top)

 Put Oreo cookies into a ziploc bag, crush them with a rolling pin. Pour the cookie crumbs out onto a plate.  Next frost your cupcakes, roll the freshly frosted cupcakes in the cookie crumbs. Repeat until all 24 cupcakes are frosted and have cookie crumbs on top.

Next step is to make the candy carrots.  They are MUCH easier to work with when they are warm.  I heated up a rice bag in the microwave and set them on it to get them warm.  You could microwave them for a few seconds but you need to be VERY careful cause the hot candy can burn you (that is why I went with the rice bag method).

Cut your Starburst in half. Flatten the top of one end and make the other end pointed. On the flattened end add some green Rips, wrap the flattened end around the Rips and then roll the whole thing to form a carrot shape.  Place carrot on top of cupcake and you have an adorable treat.

Easter Egg Craft ~ Great Kids Craft

Looking for a quick craft that the kids can do when they are stuck inside on a rainy spring day?  Maybe you have a lot of paper scraps laying around that you are looking for a creative way to use up.  This is perfect for both of those!

You will need

2 copies of an egg print out (find a coloring sheet of an egg and that will work perfect.  Its ok if it isn’t plain, you will be cutting one out and gluing over the other one anyway)

patterned paper scraps

scissors

glue

Begin by cutting your scraps of paper into thin strips.  They don’t have to be straight or even the same size.  If you don’t have any scraps of paper around, you should be able to find some cheap paper even at the dollar store.

Now, take one of your egg printouts and cut it out.  DO NOT CUT THE OUTSIDE OF THE PAPER.  Only cut the egg out of the middle.  Leaving a sort of egg shaped frame.  Lay that one aside, you are done with it for now.

Now take your scraps and glue them to the top of the other coloring sheet that you didn’t cut out.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, they can even overlap.

Doesn’t look like much at this point, but it will!  Once you are done gluing the strips down, take your egg frame you made and glue it on top.

There you have it!  A great craft that is perfect for Easter or for a rainy day!  Doesn’t it look lovely?

If you are looking for a fun new way to dye your Easter eggs this year, then give this a try. The BOLD, Bright colors will have your little ones giggling. Perfect for kids who like to draw or do craft projects.

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs, when the eggs are still hot draw on them with a crayon the BOLD BRIGHT COLORS pop and make the most beautiful eggs ever #CrayonEggs, #MeltedCrayonEggs, #Easter, #easterEggs, #KidCraftAll you need to make these bright colored eggs is:

Melted Crayon Easter Eggs, when the eggs are still hot draw on them with a crayon the BOLD BRIGHT COLORS pop and make the most beautiful eggs ever #CrayonEggs, #MeltedCrayonEggs, #Easter, #easterEggs, #KidCraftCook your eggs.  Cover with water, bring to a boil.  Boil with the lid on for 3 minutes. Take off heat, keep the lid on and let stand in the hot water for 10 minutes.  Drain off the hot water. Use a towel to put the eggs into every other spot in an egg carton.  I found it was best to space them so you do not bump them while coloring the eggs.  I also put them on their side so it was easier to color them.

All you have to do is touch the crayon to the hot egg and it melts on contact. It is more like painting the egg with wax.  The melted max makes a BOLD beautiful color.

You can color designs on them, or just draw scribbles all over the egg…. they all turn out so fun!
