Cool Ideas for Celebrating Easter

Don't panic, the kids are underfoot and the Easter bunny forgot your house. You can celebrate with small children, by creating your own decorations. You can also make sugar cookies as a family. And using Easter shaped cut-outs, make lots of cookies, without hurting your pocket. If you choose tried and true easy to prepare meals, you can have change to spare.

One of my favorites is roast chicken, you can use your own recipe, or get one online. You can add a nice potato salad, and your favorite veggies. I like this site, really good recipes, www.delish.com. You'll find a variety of dishes, including deserts. I have included a simple sugar cookie recipe, that you and the kids can make easily. It's fun making lots of bunnies and chicks. Kids as young as four love to press the cookies out and place them, on the sheet.

The Easter bunny featured in the picture is just a plain cardboard box top, cut in the shape of a bunny. I added googly eyes, from a dollar store, and painted blue. I colored the hard boiled Easter eggs, with food color. I skipped the expensive kits, and bought vinegar. It sets the color. I usually, pour a cup of boiling hot water, this is for grown-ups only of course, into cups or bowls. I add a teaspoon of vinegar to each cup.Jelly beans,

are available everywhere including dollar stores, for a buck. They also have dollar baskets, You can add grass, and candy and other treats. If you have a nice hunt and the kids, have colorful eggs, and you've done a good job. They probably won't care that you cut a few corners, and dollars as well. The whole family will have a good time, and enjoy your lovely meal and the treats.

Blend together in a large bowl, sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Chill covered cookie dough, for one hour, If mixture stiff, use a drop of milk or water, not too much. Roll dough on floured, board. Cut shapes, with cookie cutters. Place an inch apart. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let cool on a rack. When cookies are cool, let children decorate with funny decorative eyes, icing and sprinkles.
