Did Easter Sneak Up on You Too?

March 27, 2013

written by Cathy Baker, mom of 2 sweet tweens, who still think decorating Easter eggs is fun!

I tell you, when Easter is in March, it sure does sneak up on me! (Please tell me I’m not alone!)

And when we still have snow on the ground in southern Missouri, well it feels far from anything Spring-like!

But alas, Easter is THIS Sunday! Here are a few last-minute ideas to add a bit of fun to your Easter Celebrations.

Confession: I so wish I had seen this idea when my girls were younger, and still believed in magic, because I am smitten with this idea!

Here’s the idea – you ‘plant’  jelly beans in the ground…and overnight, they will grow tootsie pops (or whatever other lollipops you want!) Can’t you just see your adorable’s eyes growing wide in the morning! You can read more about it, and see the planted jelly beans, over at Balancing Beauty & Bedlam.

How simple, and yet how very yummy, and so very “Easter-y” — melt white chocolate, add some swirled food coloring and toss some Easter Candy on the top before it hardens. Yum!!

How cute are these Rice Krispy Treat eggs I found over at Welcome to the Good Life! I can see the smiles already when loved ones open these! :)

Hard-boiled Bunnies and Chicks

And what’s Easter without some hard-boiled eggs? Don’t you just love these ideas for making your hard-boiled eggs {almost} too cute to eat from

And here are a couple of Easter Egg Decorating Ideas we’re going to try this year.

Polka Dot Glitter Eggs

Have you ever used glue dots?! They are like my favorite thing ever! You can get them at walmart or your local craft store, or at Amazon. It’s basically round circles of two sided sticky-tape.  You put them all over the egg, then roll in glitter or edible sprinkles! I just love the look of these from Better Homes & Garden’s website.

Rubber cement eggs

I think my girls will enjoy making these too – a bit of a twist on traditional Egg Dyeing. Dye egg one color. Then you drizzle rubber cement over the eggs, and after it dries (this might be the part where they get impatient), then you dip it in a different color. After the egg dries, you peel off the rubber cement. You can repeat for different effects. This fun idea comes from

And if you still want a few more ideas, check out these from The Good Stuff Guide Archives.  Happy, happy Easter!!

    Thanks to Amazon’s 2-day shipping, I’m all ready as of today. Otherwise I would be sunk! Didn’t we just have St. Patrick’s Day, like, yesterday?? I need a month between holidays, at least!
