Inspired by a few Easter egg lunches I saw various places online, I wanted to do something similar for my last day as snack parent at Z's afternoon preschool. The Mo Willems book-themed snacks and mini bento snacks had been such a hit, I wanted something equally fun.
The class happened to have a field trip to the library that day, to end their book-themed learning unit, but would be back to school in time for snack. Which was the perfect opportunity to hide the eggs!
I put the organic baby carrots into carrot-shaped eggs (the Trader Joe's ones were super skinny, so I was able to fit 5 inside each one. 7 or 8 assorted grapes went into each jumbo Easter egg. And then 5 Annie's Gluten-Free Cocoa and Vanilla Bunny Cookies into each bunny face egg. 5 cookies may seem a bit stingy, but I didn't know how many were in the box, and I didn't want to have to pop open each one to add more in later. And why shove more cookies at them if they'd be happy with just 5? Don't worry. I sent the rest of the bag too. Which didn't come home...
I didn't get to be there for snack, since there are no siblings allowed at school, and it wasn't worth finding a sitter for.
