Kids craft and treat for Easter

Easy Kids Easter Craft

This Easy Kids Easter Craft is a wonderful way to help your children remember others and not just what they are getting from the Easter Bunny.
What makes this Bunny Card so sweet and extraordinary, is that it captures a moment in time as the Bunny’s face is made from your child’s hand print. You can help them write, or they can draw a picture, to a loved one, or a person who could use a little special attention.  It will surely brighten everyone’s day.
The pretzel rods are a scrumptious treat!  
The pretzels can be covered in white, milk or dark chocolate, then in a so many options of toppings it would be hard to stop.  Your family, coworkers, neighbors, everyone will want to receive these treats….without, or without, a Bunny note:)

Chocolate Covered Pretzels with Sprinkles

Directions:

Give each child a plate of sprinkles.
In a microwavable bowl, pour in as many of the chocolate buttons as desired.

Easy Kids Easter Craft

Melt for 30 seconds and stir.

Continue this process of heating in small increments and stirring until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

Easy Kids Easter Craft

Use caution not to overheat and burn the chocolate.

You or the child/teen dip the pretzel into the melted chocolate.  

Easy Kids Easter Craft

Scrape of slightly on all sides. (You can see we are using small pretzel rods as well as long ones too!)

Let the kids/teens roll their coated pretzel in candy sprinkles.

You could also use finely chopped nuts, other types of sprinkles, heath candy bits, so many options would be mighty tasty here





Lay the coated rods onto the waxed paper or parchment; which I prefer actually, until the chocolate is set.

Place set pretzels in the cellophane bags, and tie up with the ribbon, or ribbons if you want to get extra creative.

A few must be taste tested first, of course – quality control you know:)

Now for the Easy Kids Craft Easter Card

Paint one hand of a child with the washable paint -painting the two middle fingers for small hands and the pointer and pinkie finger like they are making a ‘hang ten’ sign for the bunny ears of an older kid. 

This is because their hand would take up too much room on the card if fully extended
Easy Kids Easter Craft
For small children help them press down their hand and fingers to create the head and ears.

When the paint is dry, attach the eyes. 

Easy Kids Easter Craft

Use mini glue dots like these HERE [13]. (love and have them on hand for so many uses)

To finish this treasured Kids Easter Craft , if the children can write, let them pen notes to loved ones or friends, or have them draw a picture if younger:)

This is a wonderful opportunity to  spend time as a family. 

And to reach out and thinking of others….and not just what they are getting for Easter.

Attach the Easter Craft Bunny Card to a couple of the Chocolate Covered Pretzels with Sprinkles OR simply put it in the mail in an envelope.
