We love to make edible nests out of chow mein noodles and chocolate. I like to make it with white chocolate as it lends a certain amount of elegance to the craft. We fill them with jelly beans or chocolate eggs and it looks as good as it tastes! We also enjoy making our own baskets and decorating them as well.

What is your favorite Spring Break craft project for kids?

We just made these Egg Peeps this week and it was so much fun! Think Mr. Potato Head but with plastic eggs. http://www.momontimeout.com/2012/03/egg-peeps-easter-craft.html
