Easter Baking


Last week the children at the After School Program were in the Easter spirit! We had fun creating delicious Easter Treats all together. The children Made rice crispy nests with jelly bean eggs inside. This activity is fun for all ages!

The children were in charge of reading the recipe and measuring out all the ingredients. They had a great time mixing everything all together. As you can see it was a bit sticky but we had so much fun!

You can try it at home!
