You will need a black light … you will not be able to see the glow without one of these. I bought mine on Amazon. You can do the same Black light <—–  or my kids wanted this black light flash light

Frozen Pudding Pops Recipe

Frozen Pudding Pops Recipe

frozen pudding pop

Do you remember the Cosby Show? I used to love that show and one of the things they ate was Jello Pudding Pops. It dawned on me that my children have never had a pudding pop. I decided to do what all moms do and make them. I need recipes that do not have nuts or diary so this is a greta one since it is a nut free recipe for kids. I am always on the hunt for cute ideas since my kids have nut allergies.  This was an easy recipe that my kids could make. It can easily be altered for kids with dairy allergies.

Cupcake Recipes For Kids : JellyBean Cupcakes

Cupcake Recipes For Kids – JellyBean Cupcakes

cupcake recipes for kids


Cupcakes are the perfect treat for any occasion and they are fun to make and decorate with the kids. I wish I had time to create all my cupcake delights from scratch but I have learned to get creative with box mixes and create fabulous Cupcake Recipes for Kids. This allows us to gather together as a family and experiment and create tasty confections that we then can share with our famil and friends. While shopping at the store this week we were inspired by the endless bags of Jelly Beans and decided to create Jelly Bean Cupcakes. The best part is thanks to the popularity of Jelly Beans many brands offer them year round so you don’t have to worry about only finding them at Easter time. If you are limited for time don’t worry because this recipe only adds a few more minutes to the usual time that it takes to prepare a boxed mix and the taste is completely worth those few extra minutes. Continue reading

Cupcake Recipe for Kids with Peeps

This simple Easter Recipes For Kids is really easy to create. It is also a nut free recipe for kids. I usually have about 15 minutes to put something together quickly before my children lose interest and this is what we came up with. We melted the candi quicks according to the package and we created nest for our peeps. We also had to include an egg. These can be served alone or perched on the cupcake of your choice. I used one I bought at the store because I just didn’t have time to cook it and then cool it and then ice it. That my friends is a 3 hour project instead of one that lasts for 30 minutes or less.

If you get to the chocolate when it is still warm you do not need the icing to stick the egg on it.

Finally you can put it on top of a cupcake if you wish … we usually eat ours during a tea party and do not require a cupcake but if your child has a party or participates in a party these are adorable. You can also use them for a baby shower.
