Chocolates-crafted gifts and chocolate Easter Eggs
Easter is the time to really think about those wonderful Chocolate Easter Eggs. Yes I know they should be for the children, but what the heck; we need a bit of nourishment too. Do you agree?
This is another one of those times when the businesses put out all those tempting chocolates right in front of the checkouts. Just dying to see the kids whining about wanting one of those little bunny eggs. And the parents trying to stay calm knowing there isn’t enough money left this week for that type of extravagance.
Yes, I know it is another expense that comes around every year and with all the other expenses it is harder to keep the kids happy. I hope you realize that you do not have to spend a fortune this year as there are a few little ideas that can save you some of that hard earned money.
Involve the children in the fun of making their own Easter eggs. You can hard boil them in a variety of different food colors. Then let them be inventive in adding their own personal decorative touches.
Easter Bunny egg baskets
Neither do you have to go out and buy those expensive baskets. Instead make one from small cardboard boxes. Decorate them with pretty paper, and glue on a cardboard handle. You could even use old biscuit tins. Be creative and come up with different ideas.
You could lay some straw in the bottom of these. Then cut out some Bunny Ears from white and pink cardboard and glue these on the side, cut out another circle of white paper and draw on a face and glue little cotton wool balls on the side for their feet.
Fill baskets with eggs
Add a variety of the different colored hard boiled eggs. Then to make it look more professional buy a packet of those very small chocolate eggs and mix these in between the others. You could even buy some of the gold coins to add another splash of color.
You could make a few of these and give away to people as gifts.
You could borrow some chocolate moulds from your friends and make your own personal little animal, fruit or whatever design chocolates of your choice. For that extra touch you could add fruit into the centers or almonds for something different.
Fillable Plastic Eggs
You may want to buy the plastic fillable eggs with M&M's or something similar
