- Use sugar cookie dough - the kind that comes in a tube - and slice as many cookies as you want to make. Before baking the cookies, squeeze the tops of the cookies so that they are egg shaped instead of round.
- Make the “paint” by mixing powdered sugar with enough milk to make it thin enough to paint with a small brush. Add a few drops of food coloring to make several colors.
Have each child “paint” their Easter egg cookie to take home or for snack.
Edible Easter Basket
Fill the plastic cups about 3/4 of the way full with the softened ice cream. Top with about 1/4 inch of vanilla cookie crumbs. Top with green tinted coconut “grass” and jellybeans for an edible Easter basket.
Inflate a balloon and tie it. Fill a bowl with glue. Soak string in glue. Wrap balloon with the string. Wrap different ways (up, down, and diagonal) to get a better design. Allow to dry completely. Paint. You may want to sprinkle some glitter on the wet balloon after you paint it. Make sure the string is completely dry, then pop the balloon and hang up for a unique Easter decoration.
Filter Easter Eggs
Precut egg shapes out of coffee filters. Mix water and yellow food coloring and place mixture in a baby food jar. Do the same for blue. Let the children use eyedroppers or straws to drip colors on the filter shape. The colors will run together and make beautiful eggs.
