To celebrate we have been getting a little crafty around here...
Today we made Easter Nest Eggs.
They are super duper easy to make!
Just make a batch of Rice Krispie Squares.
Line a muffin tin with wax paper.
Place a heaping spoonful of Rice Krispies in each muffin cup and press down in the middle to form a nest. (I used wax paper with a little bit of butter to help press down the middle- it really helps with the stickiness factor)
Now, melt a package of butterscotch chips in a glass (heat safe) bowl over boiling water.
Put a little in each nest (this acts as the glue to keep the eggs in place)
Next comes the really fun part- decorate your cute little nests with eggs (jellybeans!) Just remember the rule....one in your mouth, one in the nest....Ha!
Easy, fun, yummy.
(p.s you can also make a chocolate version- instead of making the traditional rice krispie squares with marshmallows, mix cereal with melted chocolate chips. You can also melt chocolate chips instead of butterscotch chips for the inside)
We also made this cute little egg wreath for our front door.
So happy. So spring-y.
Using this awesome tutorial.
And finally, these cute little eggs. Normally we do the traditional painting the boiled eggs thing, but this year we decided to try something new. These are plastic eggs covered in tiny strips of masking tape (the kids LOVED that part) and then painted.
