PEEPS Bunny Painting

If you need a way to get rid of all the Easter Bunny’s PEEPs he left, try this cute PEEPS Bunny Painting. It’ll be a hit with kids and a cute piece of artwork to treasure for years to come!

You all know how I love when Mila makes art, especially when it is a fun sensory experience. It’s not even the first time she’s gotten to play with her food either!

Honestly though, we got a lot of PEEPs this year for different recipes and what the Easter Bunny is still bringing. We’ve seen all the PEEPs smores and cocktail garnishes, but we wanted to do something we could keep for years. That’s where this artwork comes in.

Another amazing part… you only need three items:

  • PEEPS Bunny
  • Canvas/Paper
  • Paint – we used washable!

This activity is a simple set up. All you need to do it put paint on a plate. Then let your kiddo know to use the PEEP bunny as a paint brush.

Once they have one color done, give the paint time to dry. You can literally give it time or just use a hair dryer to speed up the process. Either way, you’ll want to do this so the paint doesn’t mash together and just become a ton of brown bunnies.

Repeat with how many colors you’d like to do.

You can even make it more organized than Mila’s by having your child line up the bunnies. I love the chaos of all of Mila’s artwork.

One thing that I haven’t added yet is some sort of saying on there. I’ll try to think of some bunny, spring, or Easter pun to go along with it. If you have any ideas, let me know. I’ll make sure to either update this post or post a finalized picture in my Instagram stories.

No matter what though, this activity was so much fun for Mila to do. I know kids love playing with their food and giving them this option makes it even better.

Mystery Jelly Bean Game

If you’re looking for a fun game to play with family and friends on Easter, this Mystery Jelly Bean Game with be a hit for all ages.

It’s easy to set up and hilarious to get people’s reaction on film!

This is the first Easter Mila really knows what it’s all about. So of course we have to have some fun with it.

Since we both LOVE candy, I figured it’d be fun for her to experience all the different jelly bean flavors. Her wide range of reactions made me laugh so much.

Here’s what you’ll need to play this game with your kiddo:

I printed and cut out the magical jelly bean printable from Whimsically Wonderful. It just makes it extra special and magical to do things like that.

Then, I filled the plastic eggs with the matching jelly bean color.

After, I numbered each egg 1-6 and we tried them one at a time. Mila definitely gave her honest options about them and had me try them too.

Even when she didn’t like a flavor, she ended up eating them.

I think this was such a fun activity for Mila’s age. It would be even more fun with a lot of different people to see their reactions and to see who has similar tastes.

Either way, we had such a fun time doing this game with each other. Maybe next year I’ll get the bag with ‘gross’ flavors too!


What’s your favorite jelly bean flavor? I think my favorite was strawberry.

Nut Free Bunny Trail Mix

Easter is almost here. Hop on over to check out this Nut Free Bunny Trail Mix for Easter Sunday or a fun after school spring snack.

Mila and I LOVE trail mix. It’s such a yummy and easy snack… but I can’t eat nuts. Instead of missing out, I’ve found a few staples of a mix I love.

Not only are they yummy to snack on, you can easily store snack mixes to enjoy for the entire week. It makes snack time SO easy!

One of the best parts of having a great mix is adding seasonal snacks to enjoy.

Here’s the ingredients of our latest spring mix:

  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Pastel M&M’s
  • Bunny Marshmallows
  • Chex Mix
  • Jelly Beans

Anytime I make nut free mixes, all you have to do is throw it in a big bowl. You can mix them up a little bit and you’ll have an amazing snack.

Sometimes we also like to add sprinkles as well!

One fun way to serve these is to use different shaped plates or big jars. It just adds a little more magic. The Dollar Tree always has fun containers and plates. That’s where I found this bunny!

Hopefully your friends and family will love this Easter snack mix!

Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip

If you want to bring the best dip to holidays and parties, you’re going to want to make this Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip. With only four ingredients, it’s easy to make and so tasty.

The best part about this dip is it can be festive for every holiday and party.

This week is a big one for Mila and me. Not only is Easter on Sunday, Mila turns FOUR on the fourteenth! That means we have a lot of places to be to celebrate. We actually just had her birthday… which I want to write a post about…where this dip was a huge hit. This Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip is definitely worth celebrating!

Here’s the only four ingredients you need:

  • Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 8oz Cool Whip
  • 1 Vanilla Pudding Snack Pack
  • Sprinkles (I use different ones depending on the event)

Another awesome part of this dip… you only need one bowl. Add all of these ingredients in a bowl and then mix them together. Once it gets to a creamy consistency, it’s ready.

I always add extra sprinkles on top. For Easter and Mila’s birthday, I added a spring sprinkle mix. When I made it for Valentine’s Day, we put heart sprinkles in the dip too! Whatever you’re celebrating, you can add so many different sprinkles in and it changed the whole mood of the dip. Plus, who doesn’t love sprinkles?

Then, you can either spoon to your serving bowl or keep it in the mixing one. Just make sure to put it in the refrigerator for about twenty minutes. In that twenty minutes, it will really fluff up and become extra delicious.

While you’re waiting for the Funfetti Dip to cool, get your dipping items ready.

Our favorites for this dip are vanilla wafers, graham crackers, strawberries, grapes, and green apples. Actually, green apples are our number one, but it’s good to mix with the others too. I’m definitely excited to trying more dippers.

If you try this Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip, comment your favorite dipper or what holiday you used made it on. I love this recipe so much and know you all will too!

DIY Match the Egg Memory Game

Looking for a fun way to challenge your little this season? A DIY Match the Egg Memory Game is an egg-ellent option!

When I saw the egg match printable from The Letter Vee, I knew I had to utilize it. Mila loves playing memory games, especially when they’re seasonal.

With a little work, it became such a cute and fun way for her to settle and use her brain.

This DIY Match the Egg Memory Game takes a little bit to make and set up. After the hard work though, it looks beautiful and my little loved it! She spent about 30 consecutive minutes playing with it.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Not going to lie… this DIY took a little work.

First, you need to print out the sheet from The Letter Vee. Then cut each of the egg pieces out.

Next, use modge podge to glue the paper on to pieces of cardboard. I only used a thin layer between the paper and cardboard. It seemed to have stuck perfectly fine.

Once the glue is dry, cut the cardboard into the right sized pieces too.

You could easily be done with your Match the Egg Memory Game, but we wanted to make it extra cute. This is totally optional, but I think it made it extra special.

We reused pink tinsel to trim out the pieces. To do this, I just cut the tinsel to size and hot glued around the cardboard. Then you just stick the tinsel around the outside and let it cool. I decided to leave the tinsel off of the side where the eggs come together too.

You can use these pieces as a traditional memory game or make it a little more special by hiding them in eggs around the house. Either way, it’s full of Easter fun!

DIY Melted Crayon Artwork

Happy National Crayon Day, friends! To celebrate the day, Mila and I made these adorable DIY Melted Crayon Artwork eggs.

This was a fun and different way to utilize our broken crayons.

Mila and I like to color a lot and sometimes we can left with small ones that can’t color anymore. We’ve melted them to make other crayons, but we wanted to be more creative this time.

I’ve been so inspired by all the Easter content lately that I thought it’d be adorable to make Easter eggs.

Here’s what you’ll need to make yours…

  • Crayons
  • Grater
  • Iron
  • Wax Paper
  • Thick Paper

This activity is really simple, but there’s definitely a decent amount of prep and clean up for parents.

First, collect your broken crayons that are not useable. Then it’s time to start grating them.

Mila picked out a ton of different colors. Beware of this! They can all mix and melt together. She didn’t seem to mind so it all worked out for us!

Once everything’s grated, it’s time to design your Easter eggs. I’m sure older kids would be able to create different designs. You could even use washi tape to keep everything separated.

Mila had a fun time putting the crayon shreds on the paper and had even more fun watching the next part.

When the design is complete, lay wax paper over it. Then with a heated iron, lightly press on it to melt the crayons. Mila was not expecting it to melt so we got to talk about why and about color mixing too!

After it melted, we let the crayon melting dry and then cut out the eggs shape.

We will make these eggs into a cute garland with different textures of yarn… and maybe some glitter too. Glitter is always the answer in our house!

This is an inexpensive way to decorate for Easter while doing a fun craft and science experiment with littles.


Check out other ways Mila and I have utilized and upcycled old crayons:

Let me know in the comments what you do with old crayons. I’d love to hear what our other options could be!

Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast

If you’re looking for a new breakfast recipe for this Easter, you have to try this Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast. You can easily make it in regular squares or spice it up for Easter morning.

On Easter morning, we have the same routine. Wake up, find our Easter basket and eggs, and then eat a big breakfast before all the festivities of the day! It’s important on holidays to make sure to get food before everyone gets together and plays. That’s why I’m always on the hunt for recipes that Mila will love.

Since I love french toast and Mila’s into strawberries (I mean, me too if you remember last summer), this seemed like a perfect one to try! It combined all of our favorite flavors in one bite! Who wouldn’t love that?

I had most of the ingredients on hand, but if you’re wanting to try this recipe out, here’s what you’ll need:

For this Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast recipe, it’s made similarly to regular french toast… besides the stuffed part!

The strawberry cheesecake stuffing consists of mixing cream cheese, vanilla, a pinch of sugar, and strawberries in a bowl. I mashed the strawberries a little bit to get the flavor consistent throughout the cream cheese. Then spread the mixture on one of the slices of bread. Next, put another piece of bread on top.

If you’re making your french toast with cut outs, this is the time to do it. We used different Easter shapes! No matter if you’re making it fun or traditional, make sure to press the sides down so it doesn’t all escape!

Now it’s time to dip them. Make a mixture consisting of one egg, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of sugar. Dip your bread in the mix. I make sure to add extra cinnamon every time.

After it’s coated, place on a hot pan that’s coated with butter to cook.The Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast is done when both sides are brown and toasty.

Once it’s done, I’ll add maple syrup and sprinkles to top it off. Sprinkles make everything better.

Then enjoy!

We loved this tasty breakfast and I can tell we’ll be trying different flavors to stuff our french toast with. I think using the Easter cut outs made it even more fun and festive.

Toddler Activity: Egg Rescue

If you’re stuck with abundant amount of plastic eggs from Easter, let your toddlers play with them! This Egg Rescue is fun for active toddlers who like to work with their hands.

Mila loved ripping through and tearing all the tape off the eggs. It was fun to watch her too!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Washi Tape
  • Candy, little prizes, or change.

This activity takes a little time to set up. It’s worth it because they get really into it.

Fill Easter eggs with whatever stuffing you’d like. Think of leftover eggs from Easter Egg hunts!

Then, tape them on to whatever table.

Next, have your toddler rip the tape completely off. I made Mila tear off every single piece of tape before she could open the egg. It made her be precise in how she did it.

When they have all their tape off, it’s time for the surprise. Mila had no idea they were filled and was so excited! I let her open the eggs all by herself too.

This activity has so many important motor skills that they use. I also had Mila tell me the color of the egg she was opening to get some color recognition in.

Although I think I spent more time prepping, it really was a lot of fun to watch. She even taped down some of the eggs to keep practicing.

The star of the show was the quarter though!

Mila was genuinely excited that the egg gave it to her. Plus, she got to use her piggy bank which is ALWAYS a treat.

Overall, this is such a fun activity. I think it’d be awesome to do if it was a rainy Easter or in the days following. Since they’re mostly plastic eggs, reusing them for other activities and saving them for next year is great for our world!

I hope you liked this activity and if you try it out, let me know in the comments.

Toddler Activity: Easter Bunny Nature Craft

Spring is finally here and we’re gearing up for Easter!

One way to celebrate was making a Easter Bunny Nature Craft. We were able to get outside and create, which is our favorite.

Everything we used, we found in our back yard, besides the paper and glue.

For our craft, I told Mila she was going to make a bunny out of leaves and flowers. Since she had a traumatic experience with the Easter Bunny this year, I wanted to help her see he wasn’t all that bad.

She loved finding leaves for the bunny’s ears and then a flower for his tail. It was a great hunt. I think it’d be awesome to have a scavenger hunt for all the components too.

Since the trees in Ohio still haven’t produced new leaves, a lot of what she found was old.

After we set it all out, I had her tell me what she wanted to use for the bunny’s body parts. She decided about its body, tails, and ears.

Then, I asked her if she thought we should make the bunny a crown. She did!

Once we added grass for the bunny to stay in, mila thought it was complete. As she played, I glued everything down.

It turned out so cute and it was fun watching Mila pick out different things around the yard. She was so creative in making the bunny too.

I can definitely see us doing something similar again! It’d be really challenging with having her find Easter eggs filled with supplies too. Maybe I’ll have a lamination machine by the next time we do an activity with nature. A girl can dream right?

As always, let me know in the comments if you tried to make an Easter Bunny Nature Craft! I know your child will love getting outside and creating too.

Toddler Approved Easter Egg Lunch.

Happy Monday everyone!

Mila and I had such a great Easter Day. When she woke up, she immediately asked for ‘bun bun’ and wanted to find her basket. She absolutely LOVED all her gifts, especially the chocolate, and we just had a fun day. I was surprised how much she loved the Easter egg hunt. After the initial one, I had to hide eggs three more times.

Honestly, it was so different than any other holiday, but I loved it. I’ll just spam you with some pictures here instead of making a post later today.

Seriously, such a great day., with the most random pictures ever.

With Easter, well in my house, comes all the hard boiled eggs. For lunch today, I was just staring in my fridge wondering what I could make with them. As usual, I went on Pinterest and found some inspiration.

I saw these little hard boiled egg sandwiches, that I thought would be perfect. Mila isn’t huge on bread for sandwiches or anything. When she eats, it’ll be like random slices of cheese and cuts of turkey and ham. I knew she was really enjoying hard boiled eggs yesterday for breakfast and knew I could put other things on there she’d like.

In my fridge, I found bacon, tomatoes, and avocados. Better known as a recipe for success. I fried the bacon, cut everything up, and built our little sandwiches. I only cut up two eggs, but should’ve done way more.

Of course, I added cheese and different seasonings. I feel like I always use salt, pepper, and paprika.

Turns out, Mila liked the mini sandwiches more than I could imagine. I only got to eat one of them and she mauled the others. Surprisingly, she didn’t even share with Max!

It’s a simple lunch recipe you can make with your left over eggs. The longest part of it was making the bacon and if you didn’t have bacon, it’d still be good with left over ham or turkey from Easter or whatever lunch meat you had in your fridge.

So serious about keeping her food to herself.

We have about four eggs left, so I’ll probably try to come up with something new to do for dinner or lunch tomorrow. If you have any recipes, send them my way!

Tomorrow is Mila’s second birthday! I’m feeling pretty emotional about it, but I know it’s going to be a great day. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have planned.

If you try the egg sandwiches, let me know. I loved hearing everyone’s go with the French onion grilled cheese!
