Happy Easter 2014

I love Easter, it’s my favourite time of year. It’s cheaper than Christmas and I’ve never suffered any major tragedies at Easter, also it’s a good time to reflect on Faith and life, finally, don’t forget all the CHOCOLATE!!

This week we have been preparing for Easter, possibly a little early but it does’t matter because we can do it all again next week 🙂

First we have been cooking up an Easter storm with our Chick Cupcakes and Easter Biscuits. Just look at the yumminess we have created.

Easter Biscuits – Kids in the Kitchen
The Little Man helped me make some Easter Bark using chocolate, mini marshmallows and tiny candy coated chocolate beans.

There was of course the obligatory Easter Bonnet Parade at school, and Boo and the Little Man worked really hard on their bonnets. I made the bonnets from old cereal packets then gave the kids free range in how they would like to decorate them.
Boo won first prize for her bonnet 🙂

Next I’m going to make my Easter Simnel Cake which I love.
We hope to spend some time in the holiday visiting the local Nature Center and all the animals.
Whatever you are doing this Easter, I do hope you have a lovely time (and lots of chocolate)

    I miss the Easter bonnets I remember the boys did it in reception class and that was it….. 🙁 the kids look great and well done you, ive not had a chance to do any baking over Easter… Ive only just managed to sort out stuff for the boys Easter baskets for the big chocolate day…. Hopefully next year I will be able to make up for it. provided the boys don't deem themselves too old for it.
