12 Easter Ideas for Kids

By: Foodlets

1: Hard-Boiled-Egg Chicken Family (pictured above): The lengthiest step in this easy creation is boiling the eggs. If you’ve got the eggs, a carrot and a few chia seeds, you can do this one in minutes.

2: Easter Bunny Cake: Complete with coconut “fur,” this bunny cake is surprisingly simple to make (hint: It starts with a boxed cake mix!)

3: Little Lamb Pull-Apart Cupcakes: As a busy mom of three small fries, I love the idea of a specially shaped dessert I can actually make. Starting with a simple batch of 24 cupcakes, this recipe lays out exactly how to do it.

4: Giant Easter Egg Cookie: Another crowd-pleaser for busy cooks, this awesome egg can be as easy as baking a batch of store-bought cookie dough.

5: Jade’s Strawberry-Filled Cupcakes: If you’ve got kids with a big sweet tooth, don’t miss Giada’s special cupcake recipe developed for her own little one.

6: Brownie Birds’ Nests: All you need is a pan of brownies, a round cookie cutter and a few Easter candies to create a squeal-worthy treat.

7: Peep Cake: Food Network Magazine has outdone itself with this one — a Peep-shaped cake.

8: Baby Carrots “Growing” in Spring Pots: Sweets usually take center stage on this day, but what kids can resist veggies that are this cute?

9: Sugar-Cookie Easter Bunny House: If you thought gingerbread houses were only for Christmas, well, you were right. But this sweet little home is perfect for bunnies everywhere.

10: Little Lamb Cupcakes: If you can make cupcakes, you can make these fluffy little lambs. And we’re not kidding when we say “fluffy,” because the main ingredient for the frosting is Marshmallow Fluff.

11: Chocolate Birds’ Nests: There’s nothing like this three-ingredient recipe to guarantee a happy Easter for parents, thanks to Food Network Magazine.

12: Bunny Face Cupcakes: Cutting up a few pieces of licorice? Yep, you can do that. Jordan almonds? Check. All you need is a good vanilla cupcake recipe plus a basic glaze icing and you’ll find both right here.
