Add some festivity to your home by making Easter goodies and clever yet easy crafts.

Easter Bonnet Cake is decorated with jelly beans, Bunny Cookie Pops are made from chocolate sandwich cookies. Jelly Bean Topiary can add color to your table.

Create Funny Bunny Place Cards from sandwich cookies and decorate them with jelly beans. Kids can write their names using decorative gels.


The night before your family's cooking and crafts fest, freeze juice boxes containing 100 percent juice.

Remember to take them out of the freezer two hours before the fun begins, so that by the time the kids need an afternoon snack, you've got great slush drinks.

Drink boxes of various sizes make miniature Easter baskets when you cut them in half and decorate them with colored paper and markers.
