Looks like the Easter Bunny took a bite out of these carrots the kids left for him. Arrange the nibbled-on nubs on a plate and, for an added kick, leave a trail of chocolate-covered raisins or peanuts. The kids will laugh because they look like bunny poop!

Inflatable Fun

Small balloons decorated with acrylic paint become inflatable Easter eggs. When your child opens the door to a closet or cabinet full of the balloons, this Easter delight will tumble down on him.

Bunny Paw Print Cookies

The rabbit baked these cute cookies with his paw imprint. To make your own, slice and bake store-bought cookie dough. When done, press measuring spoons into the warm dough for prints. Whisk light corn syrup with a bit of water, brush into indents, and sprinkle on colored sugar.

If you love to bake, you can make your own dough for the bunny paw print cookies. This recipe is so easy to prep (only seven ingredients!) that you might find yourself rolling out dough just for the fun of it.

Golden Opportunity
