Easter Treats

Easter is almost here.We found some fun crafts and food ideas, courtesy of Parents.com.

Here's a twist for decorating eggs:

Think of your egg as a little gingerbread cookie. Instead of just dying it, spruce it up with sprinkles, icing, and candy!

Another tip for your eggs-- get brown eggs for dying instead of white. They give you a richer color.

And this is a cute idea. Make cupcakes in oven-safe teacups. They make a great centerpiece too!
