This is one of my favorite times of year. Easter is the time of year when we get to make everything into bunny rabbits, dye tons and tons of eggs and make trips to every egg hunt that we can find.
Each year, I try to incorporate different activities. You know, to keep things interesting! I’m not talking about spending a ton of money on Easter baskets, but rather creating those special memories and doing small activities to put a smile onto the kid’s faces. Those are the things that I want my kids to grow up with memories of.
This weekend was perfect. The weather was beautiful and we have enjoyed the time together as a family. So to wind things down, I went shopping after dinner and grabbed a few of our favorite Snack Pack® pudding cups and some mix-ins from the Easter candy aisle. We were going to make some grassy easter basket cups and some chocolate dirt bunnies!
Some of our Snack Pack® pudding cups mix-ins included, coconut for the grass (dyed green with food coloring), jelly beans, marshmallow bunnies and chocolate cookies that we ground up to look like dirt. There were so many options to pick from!
Have you had a Snack Pack® pudding cup with mix-ins before? It’s the best treat ever! We do this often and like to change it up for different holidays.
My favorite combination was a chocolate Snack Pack® pudding cup, ground up cookies and a few jelly beans on top. It was the perfect amount of sweet and definitely fun for an Easter celebration.
My girl was getting a kick out the Easter basket idea. She grabbed a chocolate Snack Pack® pudding cup, topped it with “grass” and jelly beans to create a fun Easter basket look. We didn’t think about it, but this would be even more fun with a licorice rope as a basket handle!
We made a crumbly mess while putting our Snack Pack® pudding cup treats together, but, it was a lot of fun with the kids. We laughed, got creative and enjoyed the perfect ending to a great weekend with the kids.
It doesn’t take a Pinterest degree to be a cool mom, we didn’t have to prep for hours or spend a lot of money.
I love how easy it was to use Snack Pack® pudding cups and some of our favorite mix-ins to celebrate the Easter holiday!
