give something different this Easter

What a festive time of year- chocolate and sweets seem to be everywhere. While we have a sweet tooth like anyone else (including our children), chocolate tastes so much sweeter when enjoyed occasionally (and slowly, without interruption).

Some of our favourite options which aren’t chocolate:

  • Egg shaped bliss balls (recipes here)
  • Mini sticky date and pear muffins
  • Egg shaped playdough (can pop into a plastic egg)
  • Mini carrots (bunnies favourite foods)
  • Carrot Cake (recipe here)
  • ‘Carrot’ filled Popcorn
    (make a carrot packet by rolling orange paper into a cone and sticking some green on top)
  • Whats growing? book (lasts much longer than food and you can teach your kids how carrots grow)
  • Kids safe knife (cuts carrots but not little fingers)
  • Little toy bunny or baby chick (from $2 shop)

    Why don’t you get your kids to help out making gifts in the kitchen with you?

Happy holidays everyone!
