It’s time to toss your cookies and ditch the carrot sticks and use these 5 Easter snacks for your children’s ministry.
Retire the old refreshments and upgrade your munchies. Take your Easter snacks to the next level with these cool ideas. These snacks are fun to make, fun to eat, and will leave your kids wanting more.
Pretzel 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.
Healthy Easter Bunny–OK, that last one may have been a little too extreme for some of you. For those who would rather not give their kids a five-hour sugar rush, try this fruit-face snack from The Prime Pursuit. Here are instructions to make your own bunny or chick with fruit, veggies, and other healthy snacks.
Jesus Is Alive–Time and money not on your side? Here is a super-quick and super-cheap Easter snack that focuses on the empty tomb. Brought to us by Decorating by day, all you need is a doughnut, an Oreo, and a graham cracker.
Easter Eggs in Brownie’s Nest–This fun snack by the people at Babble is a hit with chocolate lovers. Younger kids will love placing the eggs in the nest, and you can talk with your older kids about the connection between eggs, the new life they bring, and how we can be born again.
