Easter Treats for Kids – Easter Recipes for Kids to Make
Getting kids involved in the kitchen is a great way to teach them about healthy eating and develop their culinary skills. Here are some Easter recipes that are easy and fun for kids to make:
1. Bunny Pancakes
These bunny pancakes are a cute and easy Easter breakfast idea that kids will love. Start by making a batch of pancake batter (you can use store-bought or make it from scratch). Pour the batter onto a non-stick pan in the shape of a bunny head and ears. Add some chocolate chips or blueberries for the eyes and nose, and top with whipped cream or sliced fruit.

2. Easter Egg Rice Krispie Treats
Rice Krispie treats are a classic childhood favorite that can be customized for any occasion. To make Easter egg Rice Krispie treats, start by melting some butter in a large pot. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add some food coloring (in pastel colors) and Rice Krispie cereal, and stir until well combined. Press the mixture into an egg-shaped cookie cutter and let it cool completely. Decorate with icing and sprinkles for a festive touch.
3. Fruit Kabobs
Fruit kabobs are a healthy and fun Easter snack that kids can make themselves. Simply cut up some fresh fruit (like strawberries, pineapple, and grapes) into bite-sized pieces. Thread the fruit onto skewers in a colorful pattern, and serve with a side of Greek yogurt fruit dip.
4. Carrot-Shaped Veggie Pizzas (Savoury)
If you want to sneak some vegetables into your kids’ Easter treats, try getting your kids to make carrot-shaped veggie pizzas. These pizzas are made with pizza dough, tomato sauce, shredded cheese, and sliced vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. Roll the pizza dough into a carrot shape, add the toppings, and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Pizza is always fun to make and your kids will love it.
