6 Unicorn Inspired Party Treats and a Cookie Recipe

Don't you love to eat pretty food? I find myself always telling our girls to not judge a food just by the way it looks..can't blame them. There is a lot of truth on we eat first with our eyes. That is why , me and Lily ( our youngest daughter ) enjoy watching quick cookie making videos on Instagram. First, they make it look so easy. Second, they always leave us drooling. Those quick cookie decorating videos may lead you into buying your very own cookie decorating supplies. Because well, how hard can it be and only to find out that is not the case...true story! Cookie decorating ( esp with Royal Icing) takes practice in my opinion.

Speaking of eating something pretty and cookie decorating. Here’s six unicorn inspired sweet treats to add to any candy buffet or just make it in an ordinary day. There’s also a bonus cookie recipe at the bottom of the post! A cookie recipe that does not necessarily need a lot of practice. They are budget friendly , easy, delicious and can you can add it to your make ahead cookie recipe list.

I am over at My Joy Filled Life, sharing 6 Unicorn Inspired Party Treats. There is also a cookie recipe included! A cookie recipe that will surely please your family. Trust me, it is 7 yr old and 5 yr old approved recipe.

Make it a baking day with your littles at home. You don't have to wait to host a party! They are all too cute to eat. You can host a Unicorn night with your kiddos and add these books to read!

Hop on over to My Joy Filled Life . Get the recipe HERE.

40 Non Candy Easter Egg Fillers

One of the things I enjoy about Easter is the Easter Egg-hunt that we do for our girls. While we enjoy attending Easter egg hunting activities in our community and church , we love to do our very own Easter egg hunt. I remember when Lucy was younger , we prepared an Easter egg hunt for her in the park.  We also did a couple here at home , both of our girls enjoyed it! We filled their eggs with candy treats and non candy treats. Giving treats may be an issue with parents of kids with allergies. Some parents just prefer to NOT give candies to their kids.

Truthfully, I really do not mind filling the eggs with candies. Some of it. Moderation.. so to speak. Luckily , there are tons of small things and toys that you can use to fill the eggs up. You can buy it in bulk ( amazon or oriental trading) , you can also pick them up at your local party store! Most of the items below can also be found at Dollar Tree . If you do not have a Dollar Tree store  or .99 cents store near you , I have provided links through Amazon. You can sign up for Amazon prime , free 30 day trial to get free two day shipping. If you wish to not continue the subscription, you can cancel it anytime. You can read why I love Amazon Prime subscription, HERE.

If you are looking into not filling their Easter Eggs with treats or thinking of what to mix in with the treats, here's 40 things that you can use to fill up those Easter eggs.
