Easter Weekend is almost here, which means fun treats, egg hunts, pastel colors galore, egg dyeing and more exciting memories to be made! As the boys get older, it’s fun to see them remember the traditions that we celebrate each year and look forward to doing those same fun things again! Here are a few cute pictures of the boys enjoying our Easter traditions last year:
Last year, I made this sweet and savory Bunny Munch that everyone, kids included, loved! I plan to make it again this Easter for all to enjoy.
-4 cups chex cereal (your preference on wheat, corn or rice)
-2 cups stick pretzels
-2 cups cheerios
-1 cup candy coated Easter eggs (Hershey’s, Cadbury, M&M’s, or whatever you prefer!)
-1 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
-Mix all ingredients (minus the white chocolate chips)
-Microwave and melt the white chocolate chips for 90 seconds, pausing to stir as needed, until it is completely melted.
-Pour the chocolate over the mix and stir in thoroughly.
-Place the mixture on wax paper and put in the fridge until it is hard and ready to enjoy!

Another tradition that the boys are starting to love is dyeing eggs! Instead of purchasing Easter Egg dye, we have tried making it! An article from Country Living had a recipe where you use different kinds of fruits and veggies to make the coloring, which is fun for the boys to see how that works!
The recipe is simple:
-1 Quart of Water
-1 Tablespoon of Salt
-2 Tablespoons of Vinegar
-2 Tablespoons of the fruit, vegetable or spice for coloring
-Mix all those ingredients together and boil.
-Simmer for 30 minutes, strain the dye, let it cool and then dip your eggs!
