We made homemade pretzels. I was craving cinnamon pretzels and this hit the spot with the fun factor, as well.
My son was pretty proud of his pretzel man!
Unfortunately, I am not impressed with the recipe we used. It tasted great, but the last step of dipping it in a baking soda/water bath made some of our creations fall apart. I am on a search for an alternative and will post it when I find one that works better.
I was able to play an April Fools joke on my kids. It was nothing fancy but the kids enjoyed it! I told them that I was making them pizza for dinner with fish and worms on it. My son was a little grossed out at first and then he got excited.
I made a large sugar cookie and topped it with cream cheese frosting and then Swedish Fish and Gummy Worms. After I showed it to them I added some strawberries. If you have never had fruit pizza it is sooooo good and can look a little like this:
Note: I did not make this fruit pizza! This is just an idea of what it looks like.
The basic idea is to add any of your favorite fruit. Strawberries taste really good, but so do kewi, bananas and berries.
Our Rock Candy did not turn out. So I will be trying another recipe as well and will be posting it again when I figure out what I did wrong.
With Easter, my kids discovered how to peel eggs....
...and even make egg sandwiches.
My son used to hate the texture of boiled eggs, so this was exciting for me!
Fun News for me: I got 2 Spring Breaks! My husband's college Spring Break was not the same as my son's. The benefit of being a mom! My parents came to town and we actually got to go out on a date for my husband's break! Woo hoo!
Last but not least, I made a button for my blog! Look to the right... It is not fancy and I would probably label it as cheesy, but it is not bad for my first button. Feel free to put it on your blog and share the fun!
