We had a hectic week and a few Easter projects to do. I found the recipe for those egg nests made with chow mein noodles and was excited to make them. Nolan was excited for the mini marshmallows and started a game: How many can I fit into my mouth at one time (see below photo)
He seemed excited to help with the cookies, we made half a batch and it was perfect. These cookies are not as good as I remembered from elementary school but they were good. Maybe some chocolate and/or peanut butter would help them. But regardless, Nolan enjoyed making them and eating the marshmallows.
Even more fun was dying the eggs. We did it last year, or maybe it was two years ago, and was more scary than fun. Worry about spilling the dye all over the kitchen, making a mess etc. Nolan was great about being careful, moved things slowly and delicately and was a lot of fun to watch.
He seemed genuinely amazed that the eggs changed colors and really enjoyed deciding whether or not they were finished 'cooking'.
We gave up quickly on the little wire stick/egg holder thing and he just used his hands. It was so nice to do this project with him. He seems VERY excited about the Easter Bunny, even more excited than he was about Santa. I think he's excited about the egg hiding and has speculated where he thinks some good hiding spots are (like under his bean bag chair). I hope that bunny lives up to Nolan's hopes!
