Easter Egg Piñata’s

Easter is right around the corner and the best part about Easter is all the candy and sweets! All kids like candy, but they get candy all the time. So why not try something new and make Easter eggs-tra special (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) for your kids or siblings by incorporating candy in a more entertaining way? If you would like to make Easter more enjoyable for the kids, try making Easter Egg Piñata’s!

Materiels:

  • Mini Balloons Or Large Balloons
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Newspaper
  • Ribbon
  • Crepe Paper (in at least 3 shades)
  • Candy
  • Water
  • Tape
  • Needle

Instructions:

  1. Mix equal quantities of glue and water in a bowl to make your paper-mâché mix. Make sure to stir the mix well
  2.  Hang up a long string of ribbon with tape (about 90cm long)
  3. Cut up some pieces of ribbon to the size of 30cm, to match the amount of piñata’s you will make
  4. Cut the newspaper into equal sized strips, you will need enough strips of paper to cover the balloon in three layers
  5. Blow up the balloon and tie it tightly in a knot
  6. To secure the knot, tie it again with ribbon
  7. Dip a stip of newspaper into the paper-mâché mix. Make sure when you glue the strip on, it does not wrinkle
  8. Cover the balloon and when done once, repeat again twice more
  9. Leave a round space at the top of the balloon near 2cm away from the knot
  10. Leave overnight to dry using the ribbon to hang the balloon.
  11. When it’s dry pop the balloon where the knot is, by poking it with a needle
  12. Remove the balloon from the inside of the paper-mâché egg
  13. Using the small hole at the top, stuff the paper-mâché egg with treats
  14. Once you are done with filling the egg, tape the hole with the tape
  15. Cut snips on one side of the crepe paper to give the egg texture
  16. Now decorate the egg by gluing the crepe paper onto the egg (alternate between different colors)
  17. Repeat all the way to the top of the paper-mâché egg
  18. Poke a hole into the top of the egg
  19. Take a piece of ribbon and knot it at one end
  20. To finish the piñata, push the knot through to hole so you may hang it up

Finally, enjoy your Easter Egg Piñata and have fun!

Yummy Ways To Eat Ice Cream

Here are two delicious and fun ways to eat your favourite cold desert! If you want to see Country Living‘s post, click HERE.

 

The first method is a warm brownie bowl

The first step is to whip up your favourite brownie recipe

  1. Instead of putting your brownie batter in a pan, you’re going to want to put it in a cupcake pan.
  2. Pop that chocolate deliciousness into the oven for the select amount of time.
  3. When done, take the brownies out of the oven.
  4. As they are cooling, take another cupcake pan (same size) and line it up with the other pan. Press it into the brownies.

5. Fill the bowls with your favourite ice cream and toppings.

The next one is a cookie bowl

  1. Take your favourite cookie dough recipe. This will be your bowl. (homemade or store bought).
  2. Roll your dough into an equal amount of cookie dough balls*. (*Make sure that they can spread out to sit on the cupcake tray)
  3. Flip a cupcake tray upside down to put your cookie dough around the cupcake cups. Make sure that you do not cover the whole cup because the cookie will spread out when baked.

3. Place in oven for the time called in your cookie dough recipe.

4. Take your delicious cookie bowls out of the oven when done. Remove the cookie bowls from the tray.

5. After your cookie deliciousness is done cooling, fill with ice cream.
