pretzel crossesPretzel Crosses-I love it when you can incorporate the Bible into snack time and over at Almost Unschoolers there are some great Easter treats that can help kids remember what they discovered about Easter. My favorite are the dipped pretzel crosses. They’re so simple to make and can easily be used to start up a discussion about Easter.



Peep Casserole-I love Peeps. I love putting them in a microwave and watching them expand, and then stopping it right before they explode and eating the gooey remains right away. So when I saw this amazing snack over at The Party Animal, I had to share it with you. Warning: It’s not the healthiest snack, and your kids will be jumping off the walls…but it’s really cool.

For those who would rather not give their kids a five-hour sugar rush, try this fruit-face snack from The Prime Pursuit.
