Use rabbit, chick, cross and egg shaped cookie cutters for toast, sandwiches, brownies, rice krispie treats and more.
Color your own eggs by making your own egg dye. Try beet juice, kool aid and anything that has color.
Make Easter egg holders, cut empty paper towel tubes about 2 inches each and wrap in colorful paper.You can then sit your eggs on them.
Cut out construction paper egg shapes and write a Bible verse on each one about what Easter is really about.
