Easter Chicks and Dirt Dessert

Chicks and Dirt Dessert for Easter



 

“Dirt” (layered Oreo crumbs and pudding) is one of our favorite spring-time snacks…and not just because our boys think it is fun to say they are eating dirt.  We added an Easter spin on the classic with some colored coconut and Marshmallow Chicks for this Easter Chicks and Dirt Dessert!

 

After I made this dessert a few days ago (and thought I was being so creative), I stumbled upon these adorable Pudding Cups with Marshmallow Bunnies (and carrots).  They are so cute!  And then I wondered if other people had thought of the same idea with chicks.  Well, they had!  :)  (There really is nothing new under the sun!)  Check out all the varieties here!

 

 

Here’s the recipe:

Chocolate pudding (I didn’t have any instant on hand, so I made this super easy homemade chocolate pudding)
Package of Oreos (I pulverized ours in my Ninja, but you can also crush them manually)
Flaked coconut (with green food coloring)
Marshmallow Chicks
M&M’s Eggs

The boys enjoyed it most of all…but they didn’t stick around long enough to get a picture.  :)

Easter Eraser Sorting with Tweezers

  I found these cute little Easter erasers in the Dollar Spot at Target a few weeks ago.  We used them for this great sorting and fine motor activity! Sorting is a wonderful skill to encourage cognitive development in preschoolers.  And using tweezers helps build the small muscles in the hands that your child will write and draw with.   Here's what you'll need:  small … [ Keep reading… ]

5 Reasons to Ditch Your Phone and Pick Up a REAL Camera

IMG_0545

I know, I know...camera phones are so convenient.  Who wants to tote around a clunky DSLR when you can just grab your camera from your pocket and capture those unforgettable memories of your kids?  We already have enough stuff to carry around as it is!     I'm all about using my phone's camera and I normally take multiple pictures with my phone every single day.  But those aren't the … [ Keep reading… ]

30+ Christ-Centered Easter Activities and Crafts

 Just like Christmas, the true meaning of Easter can sometimes get lost with the more fun (yet trivial) parts of the Easter celebration.  Trust me, I love chicks and bunnies as much as anyone.  In fact, I had two pet rabbits growing up (one named Thumper and the other Emmie) and I had bunny wallpaper for the majority of my childhood.  But I think taking the opportunity to focus on the death and … [ Keep reading… ]
