Simple Easter Recipes for Kids: Parfait

Simple Easter Recipes for Kids

Easter Parfait

Easter Parfait

I have three kids and I try my best to cook recipes that they can make. They are still little so the shorter the project the better. This Simple Easter Recipes for Kids was created by my children. They told me what they wanted to make for dessert and well we made it. I feel like cooking should be self directed and finding recipes that allow for creativity is key. This allows your child to problem solve and apply logical thinking strategies. This recipe is easily adapted for children of all abilities since it involves gathering the materials and combining them as the child sees fit.

 

We started out with as many peep options as possible I mean you need options right?

I think we were successful in our creation. I know that my daughter had a wonderful time using the items we had gathered to make her special dessert. I have to say she had a heavy hand with the sprinkle but who could blame her it sprinkles.

Easter Recipes: Peeps Smores

Bright, Colorful and full of fun make Peeps Smores for Everyone!

Peeps Smores

I love peeps and was so excited that you can practically find them all year long. They are a little treat I allow myself every once in a while because who can eat just one. I was having company over and wanted to make a kid friendly snack that looked and tasted good. I knew all kids love smores but February in Michigan is a little to cold to be outside over a fire. I decided to add a twist and use Pink Bunny Peeps in place of the marshmallows. I put them on a baking sheet and presto-chango, we had Peeps Smores in just 10 minutes. The best part there were no sticky forks or fingers to clean up when we were done.

The best thing about being a mom is finding things to do with your kids that create memories. We find recipes kids can make with a little bit of parental support. I find the easier the recipe the better. I also try to teach math and reading while making recipes in the kitchen. It is important to me that my kids eat healthy. It is also important that they learn to listen, work together, and try something new. When you chose to find recipes that kids can make you teach them more than a recipe and sometimes you can even get them to try something new.

Waffles are easy to make. I was in a hurry so I grabbed my waffle maker and then we sprayed it with olive oil. We allowed it to heat up. When it was heating up we made waffle mix.

You will need

1 cup of flour

1 1/2 tsp of  baking powder

1/4 tsp of salt

1 Egg

1 cup of milk

and some melted butter, I use 2 1/2  tablespoons 

I mix the dry ingredients first then I add in the egg, milk, and butter. I mix them until blended. DO not over mix. I leave my mixture sitting for about two minutes then I pour it in the waffle maker.

****If you want to make the recipe festive for St. Patrick’s Day simple add in some food coloring prior to cooking.

Lucky Charms Treats Recipe for Kids

Lucky Charms Treats Recipe

I can still remember growing up and my mom making Rice Krispie Treats. I would make them at but my kids do not share the same enthusiasm I do. I think it is because they get all kinds of sugary treats, I did not have growing up. My daughter loves the cereal bars but unless I get a great sale they are not a good cost option for lunch snacks. We decided that in honor of St. Patrick’s Day we would embrace the Irish in us and make Lucky Charm Marshmallow Treats.
