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.

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!
Country Living
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
Directions:
-Mix all those ingredients together and boil.
-Simmer for 30 minutes, strain the dye, let it cool and then dip your eggs!

I hope that you enjoy Easter Sunday surrounded by your loved ones, with sweet treats and colorful eggs!

Easter Bunny Munch

It's almost Easter! For many it's spring break this week. If you are around the house and looking for some fun, little things to do for your kids, this easy recipe will bring smiles to your little ones! {and it's easy!}

Easter Bunny Munch

4 c. cheerios 

4 c. chex cereal or choose your own. I had some chocolate cherrio bunnies on hand 

1 c. candy coated easter eggs

1 bag of white chocolate chips or 2 chunks of white chocolate bark

You really can add anything you would like. That's what I love about this mix. You can make it healthier or more sweet. 

1. In large bowl, mix all ingredients except white chocolate. 

2. Place white chocolate on the stove on LOW for 10 minutes, stirring often. 

3. Pour chocolate over snack mix and stir. 

4. Let harden and enjoy! You can let it set on wax paper. I just let it harden in the bowl and it turned out great!
