During social distancing, I’ve been constantly looking for fun recipes to keep the kids entertained for at least a little while. And with Easter this weekend, I want to find ways to keep things festive even though the celebration will be small. I’d imagine most of you are looking for the same, so here’s a round up of some great Easter recipes to keep everyone entertained and for some festive treats the whole family can enjoy!

Easter Snack Mix
How Sweet Eats calls this trail mix “addictive” and we can believe it. Cereal, pretzels, m&ms and chocolate chips? What could be bad…especially when the recipe calls for a quick zap in the microwave for cooking.

Hummus Dip with Fresh Veggies
Sometimes it’s all about presentation. And if “planting” your veggies (carrots, jicama or even snap peas work well) in a little “pot” of hummus get kids to eat up? We’ll try it!
