Five Fun, Simple, and Frugal Last-Minute Easter Ideas


Just for fun, I thought I would post a few last minute Easter ideas.  We already did our Resurrection Eggs, and have been reading from Matthew all week about the last days of the Savior.  Yesterday was Good Friday.  I thought today it would be fun to lighten up a little.

1.  We did Green Eggs and Bunnies!

We colored boiled eggs earlier in the week.  But, in addition to coloring the outsides of our eggs, we colored our scrambled ones.  My little ones thought this was so fun that the Easter bunny colored their scrambled eggs.  They loved the Easter bunny pancakes (it didn’t hurt that there were chocolate chip eyes and nose)!  You could color them any color, but we chose green!

2.  Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs!  Found this at Cute As A Fox, so the idea and picture is all hers.

Instead of candy, buy some glow sticks at the Dollar Store.  Makes for a fun nighttime Easter hunt!!

3.  Resurrection Rolls:  I have done these several years using my own delicious roll recipe.  You roll out the rolls, put a marshmallow in the middle, and wrap it all together.  I think it would be much more simple using Rhodes rolls, biscuits, or crescent rolls and marshmallows. If you want to sweeten it up, dip the rolls in melted butter and cinnamon/sugar.  Just bake as usual.  This really works and is delicious too.  The marshmallows just melt out, symbolic of the “empty” tomb.  Great reminder of the resurrection of Christ.

4.  No-Bake Easter Nests:  These are so fun, and delicious (we won’t get into caloric intake this weekend…)  All it takes is chocolate chips, chow mien noodles, and some candy eggs (Cadbury mini eggs, jelly beans, etc).  I saw one recipe where you did half butterscotch and half milk chocolate.  Sounds divine!!  You could also mix it up with peanut butter chips.

These would look darling on top of a cupcake!

5.  Finally, Kool Aid egg dye.  Want to dye some eggs for your Easter egg hunt?  Use Kool-Aid.  Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup water to a package of Kool-Aid.  Drop in your boiled eggs and let sit for as long as you want.  Take out–Wah-lah!!

Hopefully these give you a few ideas for your Easter celebration!  Fun, simple, and frugal ideas are always a plus!
