Spice up your kiddos Easter basket with fun and simple do it yourself treats. I created 8 tasty Easter basket fillers that you can make quickly. Your kids will love these creative favors!
Bunny Flower Pot: Paint a terra cotta pot white, add rosy cheeks, googley eyes, whiskers, a nose and card stock ears. Attach the nose and ears with hot glue. Fill the pot with grass and candy filled eggs.
Mason Jar Treats:
Turn a mason jar into a cute little chick. Cut a mini yellow cupcake paper in fourths and glue two of the fourths to the sides of the jar for wings and two of the fourths to the bottom of the jar for feet. Add googley eyes and a yellow beak made from construction paper.
Line the bottom inside of the mason jar with bunny peeps and then fill the jar with candy.
Egg Carton Treats: Paint a cardboard egg carton with acrylic paint. Create a cute name sign for the inside lid of the carton and fill the egg slots with grass and candy.
Chocolate Peep Pops: Melt chocolate in the microwave or on the stove top. Stick paper straws in the bottom of each peep. Use a knife to cut a slit in the peeps so the straws slide in easily. Dip the peep in the melted chocolate. Add a marshmallow for a tail and sprinkles for decoration. Lay the pops on wax paper until the chocolate has hardened. Get creative and display them using an egg carton or package individually.
Bunny Cups: Draw and cut a bunny shape out of colorful card stock. Fill a small clear plastic cup with colorful candy. Using a glue gun, apply hot glue to the rim of cup. Place the front of the bunny on the cup and let dry. Once it is dry, turn the cup over to reveal the cute bunny cup.
Bunny Basket: Draw a large bunny head on a piece of scrapbook paper. Cut out the bunny head and use it to trace and cut out a second bunny head. Add googley eyes, a nose, mouth and whiskers to one of the cut outs. Using a hot glue gun, glue the edges of the bunny head together stopping below the ears. Fill with grass and treats!
Bunny S'mores: Create a cute tasty package with a peep bunny, a mini Hershey chocolate bar and graham crackers. Package it in a clear treat bag.
