Pinterest Made Me Do It--Easter Edition

During Easter weekend, I got a double dose of Pinterest Made Me Do It.  I'd pinned a couple of cute ideas and just waited for the perfect time to try them out.

First, our Easter Peeps cake.  It turned out beautifully and was fun to make.  Just remember, with little helpers, everything takes longer than it should.

Here's our cake:

And, here's the original link where I got the idea:  Peeps Cake

Our other project of the day was coloring our Easter eggs with Kool-Aid.  I'd seen this floating around Pinterest and Facebook, and really wanted to try it.  I grew up using the traditional dye and vinegar to color eggs, so I was interested to see if the Kool-Aid would work.  And, I wouldn't have to worry if the kids drank it or spilled it. 

The kids were totally into coloring the eggs.  Girl Twin was over it quickly, and went to take a nap. But everyone else liked using the Kool-Aid.  We give it two thumbs up!  If you want really bright colors, you have to leave the eggs submersed for a long time.  We, of course, are not that patient.

Here's the LINK.

Supplies needed:  Kool-Aid packets, water and cups or bowls to dip in.

Even the big kids like to color eggs!

Some of the finished product!

  1. This big kid loved helping to color the eggs. Too bad the weather was crummy and we couldn't hide and hunt them. I enjoyed my visit. The kids are bigger and smarter each time I see them. Keep the blog posts coming. I read every one and enjoy them all!

    Love to all...
