Our Hoppin’ Easter Play Date, Complete with Snacks and Crafts!

at

I absolutely love Easter. Being able to celebrate the foundation of my faith is such a powerful day. There is nothing like remembering the resurrection of Jesus, the Son of God and what He did for you and me.

This Easter will be very different for the Cunningham’s. We will either be in the hospital and have a new little one in our arms (hopefully) or Olive will be getting ready to hatch (just a little Easter pun).

I am still trying to squeeze in some Easter fun with the boys before Olive arrives. We are starting off with a bang, by hosting a wonderful Easter play date that I can’t wait to share with you.

For the table runner, I used rolled white craft paper so it would make for an easy clean up.

I will warn you that not all our play dates are like this, but I do like to spruce it up a little for the holidays. All the decorations were things I already had or were from the Target One Spot aisle.

Let’s start with the craft.

Bunny Face Mask Supplies:

Heavy-duty paper plates

White foam paper

Pink foam paper

Popsicle sticks

Hot glue gun and glue

Ribbon

Cotton balls (sorry, not pictured)

Directions: I will go on and say that I made the base of the masks, so it is a little more “mom” involved. Begin by cutting a circle in the middle of the plates. Then use the bunny ear template to cut out the foam ears. I used the longer pieces of foam paper and was able to get two sets of ears out of each. Next, hot glue the pink foam to the white foam allow them to dry for a minute. Attach the ears to the plate along with the popsicle stick to the opposite end. Lastly, make your bow and attach it to the popsicle stick. You could totally make these little lady bunnies by attaching the bow between the ears.

I made them the night before and at the play date allowed the kids to glue the cotton balls around the edge of the mask.

These are super fun and easy. The boys loved running around wearing them.

What’s for snack?

As you all know, having hungry toddlers means you need plenty of snacks. Sometimes planning snacks can be hard. I needed food that was on the healthy(ish) side, nothing that needed a lot of preparation, and I didn’t want to spend a ton of money.

Peep Fruit Kabobs:

Assorted fruit. I used red grapes, green grapes, precut pineapple (I know splurge), and strawberries.

Kabob sticks, pretty much like handing a toddler a sword so keep an eye out.

Peeps

Directions: Stack the fruit to your preference, I would not recommend putting the grapes on the end. Make sure to put one marshmallow Peep in the center of the fruit kabob.

Carrot Patch Cups:

Jell-o chocolate pudding snack cups (maybe not so healthy)

Crushed Oreos (okay, even less healthy)

Strawberries

Orange Wilton Candy Melts

Directions: Wash the strawberries and allow them to dry on a paper towel. Use a plastic bag to crush the Oreos and sprinkle on top of the chocolate pudding, making it look like dirt. Next, microwave the candy melts in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Begin to dip each strawberry in the candy coating, going as close to the stem as possible, then place on a non stick mat or parchment paper. Allow them to dry for 5 minutes, then using a fork drizzle more candy coating on top, giving the appearance of the ridges in a carrot. Let the “carrots” dry for 5 more minutes and then place them in the “dirt.”

Cotton Tail Trail Mix

Mini Marshmallows

M&M Eggs

Annie’s Snickerdoodle bunny cookies

Directions: I let the little guys assemble their own trail mixes. These adorable little pouches came from the Target One Spot and I lined them with cellophane bags, to make them food safe. Each ingredient was placed in metal buckets also, from Target.

I hope you and your little bunnies will enjoy all these sweet treats and fun craft!
