I realize that I have not posted in almost 2 weeks. I’ve really, really missed it but I’ve been so busy putting together an Easter egg hunt for our Marin Parents of Multiples Club among other things like sick children and the class art project for my big one’s school auction. When it rains, it pours. I wanted to share some of the special and creative ideas for this party that you could incorporate into your Easter Sunday fun day.
Here is my favorite! I think it was the favorite of many of the kids too! Bunny peeps on a stick! How can you beat that? The grass came in squares from Daiso, the Japanese dollar store. They have the most amazing stuff! I had to put foam underneath so the peeps would stick in and stand up. But you could also find it here on Amazon. Plastic Grass Mat Party Prop
This one was actually from last year but I love our tree of funfetti popcorn so I thought I’d share it.
If you haven’t tried funfetti popcorn, you definitely should! It’s delicious! I can’t remember which recipe I used but it is much like this one. If you look it up, you will find many. It’s so pretty and festive for spring!
I didn’t bring the tree branches this year. I brought this stand to hold party hats and waffle cones full of popcorn. These waffle cones were the perfect size for little ones. mine loved them. It was easier for the kids to reach the popcorn than when we used the tree of popcorn.
Here’s how we made them. We took a crate that we have and cut it in half. My awesome, amazing, handy husband did that! Love him! Actually, he encouraged me to drill a few holes too! Pretty fun!
Then we did some sanding and some drilling. We drilled these 2 inch holes with a drill bit that you use for door knobs. Can you see that it’s dark outside and we are using a spotlight? That’s because we have to do these things when our kids are asleep. We get nothing done when they are awake.
And this is what it looked like when it was done. We did both sides of the crate we cut in half, so we have two.
I wanted to use all waffle cones, but I couldn’t find the size that was larger than the Keebler cones. Actually, I did but I would have had to buy 216 of them. I didn’t need that many. And I didn’t have time to order any online.
Here I wrapped the cones in tissue paper for the color but also I knew the kids would eat the cones, so I thought I’d wrap them so they didn’t touch the wood.
I used these serving pieces (like I do for every party) from these dollar store finds. These colors work for our Fall Festival party, our Easter Egg Hunt party and our parents-night-out fiesta party. Oh, we have orange ones too. I think I spent about $32 and have at least 16 pieces. You just choose the pieces you like and then use epoxy to glue them together. A bowl with a cup makes a great serving stand! I made an orange cake plate for myself and I love it! This party, they happened to be distributing the candy. Lots of little ones parked themselves in this area! They just loved helping themselves to loads of candy. These are easy and fun and inexpensive to do for a party!
It’s fun to make cute signs with a Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine Starter Bundle.
And signs for the different activities. When you have a party for little ones, it’s all about the activities you have for them. You’ve gotta keep them busy!
Also the green homemade play dough with pink sparkles and the Easter shaped cookie cutters were a hit!
I love to decorate with these bird cages with the butterflies. I also used them to decorate for my daughters “Fancy Girl Tea Party.” They are so fun and whimsical.
And we had lots and lots of Easer Eggs! We had nine hundred! And what a backdrop for this party! Wow!
It was a gorgeous day at a beautiful park. It was a lot of work to put on but we had a wonderful day with our family and our Marin Parents of Multiples friends.
What are your Easter decorating ideas? Kids love Easter egg hunts so much. They could not wait to find all those eggs. By “find,” I mean “grab every single one that they could!” What do you do with all your eggs after Easter? Do you just let your kids play with them all year? Do you pick them up for next year?
