Bird Nest Snacks

 Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Chinese Noodles
  • 1 Cup Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 Cup Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 Pkg. Butterscotch Chips
  • Peeps
  • Jellybeans or other Egg-shaped Treat
  • Wax Paper

Directions:

Step 1.

Empty the butterscotch chips into a microwave safe bowl. Follow the package directions to melt them, mixing them until smooth.

Step 2.

In a separate bowl, measure out your Chinese Noodles…. 2 cups

Add 1 cup of Rice Krispies cereal. Pour the noodle and cereal mix into the melted butterscotch chips.

Add your marshmallows, and gently stir until everything is well coated with the melted butterscotch chips.

Step 3

Drop a large spoonful of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Try to mash down the middle and build up the sides to look like a nest.

Step 4

Add a little birdie (peep) and a few eggs to each nest. They need to set for a bit so the butterscotch can harden. Set them aside on the counter and they will be ready in a matter of minutes!

Tissue paper flowers

 

 

 

 

 

Tissue Paper Flowers

 Supplies:

  • Tissue paper  {7-9 sheets makes a large flower, you can use more if you want it fuller}
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Wire
  • Wire cutters

Step 1:

Lay out tissue paper so it’s all even. The width of the fold should be 1 1/2 inches wide. I used the ruler width to measure each fold.

Step 2:

Fold tissue paper, accordion style, making sure that you crease each fold {I used my fingernail to make it crisp}

Step 3:

Continue folding until all the tissue paper is stacked up, accordion style

Step 4:

Wrap a piece of wire around the middle

Step 5:

Round the corners, or you can make them pointed

Step 6:

Carefully separate each sheet of tissue, pulling them toward the center. This takes some time and patience. It took me a couple hours to get all 7 flowers done, so allow yourself some time.
