Following in the footsteps of the best-selling Halloween Treats, Summertime Treats, and Christmastime Treats, Easter Treats offers an irresistible array of easy-to-make holiday decorations and gifts, as well as delicious recipes for Easter. With just the right user-friendly, family-oriented approach to festive food and crafts, this idea-packed volume is sure to please kids of all ages.
From sweet Chicken Little Cookie Pops to a full-fledged Easter Bunny Cake, Candy Cones to kid-sized Bunny Ears, families will find an abundance of tantalizing confections and simple craft projects that celebrate the Easter spirit. Elegant menus offer options for entertaining the bigger bunnies, while craft projects will have the kids dyeing and decorating eggs, sprucing up their baskets, and creating decorations for the table, the front porch, and themselves.
There are plenty of scrumptious treats for a good time, but what sets this book apart from others of its kind are the practical tips for cooking and crafting with kids. Author Jill O'Connor understands that, when it comes to family, process is more important than finished product. Both the crafts and the foods are written in recipe form and many include "Easy Way Out" suggestions for when time or energy is in short supply. They're designed to help you celebrate the simple joys of the holiday and have fun. With only a little adult assistance, your kids can make most of the crafts and many of the foods.
In the same popular, compact format as its series predecessors, Easter Treats is beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs. Providing holiday cheer for the whole family, this delightful volume presents more than 50 new traditions to be treasured this spring and in Easters to come.
Jill O'Connor is the author of numerous books, including Simple French Desserts. She lives in Newport, Rhode Island.
