Do you have kids who love to “help” in the kitchen?
I know I do– from mixing ingredients to doing the dishes, my two older kids (almost 4 and almost 2) are always hanging on my leg and/or climbing on the counter trying to do whatever I’m doing.
These Easter snacks are fun for your kids to do because a lot of it can be done by themselves.
Milano Cookie Bunny Ear Pudding Cup
Top off your favorite pudding cup with two Spring Milano cookies to create a pudding bunny treat complete with edible ears! Place a few jelly beans as eyes and a nose, add some licorice whiskers, and you have a delicious and festive pudding snack to share with the whole family!
You can either make a batch of vanilla pudding yourself or buy the individual cups and scoop them out into bigger cups so that the bunny face fits.
Or, make the bunny face on a bowl of vanilla ice-cream!
Note: We didn’t actually make this one yet. The photo was provided by Pepperidge Farm. When we do make it, I think I’ll replace the licorice with those skinny pretzel sticks. My kids aren’t big fans of black licorice.
Goldfish Cracker Carrot Bags
Since I’m actively trying to lessen my family’s sugar intake, I’m particularly fond of this option for Easter snacks.
Fill up a disposable pastry bag with Cheddar Goldfish crackers and tie with a green ribbon. Even my one-year-old enjoyed doing this one!
This is a great snack to send into school for a spring party, as well. The kids will love it!
Easter Bunny Toast
Another fun one– use the cookie cutters to cut out a shape in the bread, toast it, and top with some butter or desired topping.
You can use plain bread if that’s all you have, but for a really special treat, you can try some Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl Bread or the new Chocolatey Chip Swirl Bread.
We used the Cinnamon Swirl Bread this time. I happened to have some Easter-shaped cookie cutters lying around, but if you don’t, here’s a four piece set (bunny, flower, egg, and butterfly) available from Amazon for $4.49.
The Easter bunny cookie cutter I have is too big to fit on one slice of bread, so we did the circle face part on one slice and the bunny ears on a second slice and then put them together.
Also, you may think it would be easier to cut the shapes AFTER toasting, but it was much easier to do it before toasting.
This one can also be used as a low-key kid-friendly Easter breakfast!
Have fun making these easy Easter snacks with your kids– no baking or Pinterest-y type crafting skills required!
