Surprise Easter Egg Snack

This is pretty simple stuff: grab those plastic Easter eggs you keep year after year or head to the store to buy all new. Your choice, but you need the eggs to put fun, small snack items into. This year in our "surprise egger snacks" (as the kiddos called it) we had cut up strawberries, Goldfish crackers, cereal (sugar cereal at that. Big deal around here), and jelly beans (it is the Easter season after all). Close the eggs, put on a child's plate, and let them open them to discover what's inside.

There's always some confusion at first about whether it's okay to actually eat what's inside the eggs, but after reassuring them it was a-okay, it was a really fun snack time!

Some other ideas to put in the eggs (that we've done in the past):
  • Cut up grapes
  • Baby carrots (this only works if you use large plastic eggs, not medium or small sizes. Speaking from experience on that one)
  • Blueberries
  • Pepper dices
  • Small raspberries
  • Cheerios
  • Peas
  • M&M's
  • chocolate chips
  • Puffs
  • Yogurt melts
  • Marshmallows
