Some Easter DIYs for the family
Coloring Easter eggs with your little ones can be fun but also a bit messy. I have a solution to this that will be less of a mess and more memorable. Here are three Easter DIY’s for you and your kids:
Marshmallow Easter Bunny Craft

This step is up to you. > Have your children place the marshmallows onto the glue. > Lastly, add details to the bunny. Add the eyes, add the pom pom for the nose, and add the yarn/pipe cleaners for the whiskers. > And you’re done.
Easter Carrot Footprint
