Easter eggs in a nest for a healthy Easter

So many holidays are getting a bad wrap for turning your family’s healthy eating habits completely on their head – but it doesn’t have to be that way! Here’s a list of healthier Easter options to ensure that the focus is less on achieving a chocolate-enduced coma and more on crafting, laughing, and being with family.

The Craft Table

1) DIY Carrot and Egg Easter Garland

Paint chips – who knew they were so versatile? And not to mention FREE! Head on down to the hardware store and stock up on some festive colours then sit your kids down and get to creating! (via Moonfrye)

2) Yarn Eggs

Really cute craft idea to make with your kids or beforehand to decorate your house with. Place small toys inside and hide throughout the egg hunt. (via Simply Modern Mom)

3) Easter-Themed Nail Art

Put your fingers in the festive mood or have your little girl put your steady hand to the test with these Easter-inpired nail art designs. (via Pinterest)

Egg-cellent Egg Painting

4) Pretty Pastels

This style throws your typical dying methods out the window and substitutes in acrylic craft paint. Really dazzle up your hard-boiled egg with a paintbrush and a steady hand. (via Paper & Stitch)

5) Water-Colour

How pretty are these? I mean seriously, how pretty? No need to be precise with this method, just drip and twist and you’ve got yourself an oval masterpiece. (via Spoon Fork Bacon)

6) Paint Splatter

Ready to get a little messy? These Jackson Pollock inspired eggs combine regular old egg dying with a little creative splatter painting. Play around with the colours to really brighten things up! (via Better Homes and Gardens)

7) Glitter Eggs

8) Cheddar Bunny “Carrots”

To make these you will need Annie’s Organic Cheddar Bunnies, disposable frosting bags (you can get these from most craft stores), twine, tape, streamers, and those super cute printable Hoppy Easter tags! (via Hazelfly)

9) Easter Egg Pops

Forget your regular frozen desserts, make an easter themed egg-shaped frozen popsicle out of natural fruit juices or flavoured water! When they’re shaped as festive as these little guys are, you can get away with using low-sugar alternatives and avoiding all that food colouring. (via Brit + Co.)

10) Chocolate Covered Fruit

No, this isn’t cheating! You’re allowed chocolate, just do your best to try and sneak a few pieces of REAL fruit in there alongside it. Set up a station of strawberries, bananas, pineapple, grapes, peaches…whatever you like to pair with chocolate…and use melt real chocolate to make a fondue.
