Easter Sweet Treats

Easter is in just a few days, and we want you to be ready. This fun dessert will wow at your Easter gathering. It is sweet, simple, and so much fun it will make everyone smile.

Thank you to Kristyn at LilLuna for this incredibly simple and fun recipe. She knows what its like to be super busy with kids running around and a holiday to get ready for, after all, she has 5 kids. So if she can get this sweet and simple dessert ready by Easter I figure I can too. So I am packing both kids in the car and headed out to gather the last minute things I need to make this dessert happen. If you’re like me you maybe be just a little behind when it comes to having things ready for Sunday. The Easter Basket items are all set, but I have put off shopping for food. Now it is time to get ready.

The great thing about this recipe is it is not complicated at all. You do not need to be a pastry chef, a great baker, or even watch those cooking and baking shows on television. With just a little bit of work and following the instructions you too can end up with a delicious yet adorable dessert that will impress everyone.

Just head on over to LilLuna for the full recipe and tutorial complete with photos. Make sure you set aside enough time to do this the morning of Easter or the night before, it will not keep well in the fridge for more than a day or two and still look good for dessert. Thank you Kristyn for such a fun and simple dessert idea. Now this momma can go finish her shopping and be ready for Easter.

Toobeez Building Toys

My kids love Legos. We spend probably 85% of our time indoors building legos. So when a friend recommended these toys I knew I had to check them out. Toobeez are like oversized K’nex toys. Like legos they teaching critical thinking, spatial understanding, nurture creativity, and working together.

Toobeez come in sets of 50 or 150. They feature long, medium, and small poles that can be connected with ball joints. You can also put sheets, or cloth coverings on them (each set comes with a few) to create tents, forts, etc.

We purchased one set and we were gifted another set. Since then m,y kids have been in building mode for days. we have already perfected the fort, and we have fallen in love with the airplane. Buy daughter who is currently Moana obsessed even found a way to create a sailboat. The building possibilities are endless. Kids can create and build all day long. It is fairly simple to begin, and the more you do it the adept you get at putting the pieces together and taking them apart.

Check out Toobeez for a fun building alternative, and be sure to see some of the interesting building ideas. You can look them up on Pinterest for dozens of building ideas.
