8 Ways to Make Easter Egg-Cellent in your Home

Due to social distancing requirements, your Easter plans may have changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but there is no reason why this holiday can’t feel EGG-cellent in your home. We have some fun ways you can get crafty with your kids, make some edible treats and enjoy an egg hunt from the comfort of your home.

1. Magical Jelly Beans –

Each year we have a tradition of “planting” magical jelly beans. We decorate a container for the Easter Bunny and fill the inside of the container with dirt. The night before Easter Sunday we “plant” the jelly beans so that the Easter Bunny can have those jelly beans grow into lollipops if the Easter Bunny feels the kids behaved well and deserved them.

2. Rice Krispie “Surprise” Egg Treats-

Every child loves a “surprise egg”. This one is not only delicious but, fun to make as well. Make your original Rice Krispie Treat recipe and just by using a large plastic egg you can form each side of the egg. Then, place about 3 to 4 jellybeans in the middle then close and push tight to form a full egg. When the child opens the Rice Krispie treat there will be jelly beans inside. Yummy and Fun. *If you do not have jelly beans you can put any other small loose candy of your choice inside. Such as: Skittles, M&M’s or Mike & Ike’s.

3. Peep Bunny Twinkie Cars

Want a fun Easter dessert idea that the kids will love to make? This is an edible activity that any true PEEP lover will enjoy making and eating. For each Peep Bunny Race Car you will need to set up a plate of all the “parts” needed.

One Peep Bunny, a Twinkie (car) , 4 Marshmallows or chocolates ( for wheels ), one mini vanilla wafer (steering wheel) and some frosting.

5. Decorate Your Eggs with Science Fun

Science takes over this egg dyeing technique! Now, this is an exciting way to dye your eggs with some BUBBLING and FIZZING Fun!

Fill the bottom of your container with baking soda and mix some food coloring into the baking soda. Place your hard-boiled egg gently into the bottom of the container and add vinegar SLOWLY. See what happens…  and within a minute your egg will be covered in color. Set the egg aside in an egg carton to dry. You might want to have a lot of eggs already hard boiled because your kids are going to want to do this over and over, again. The result is different every time. The eggs look beautiful don’t they?
