Spring is almost here plus Easter is right around the corner and this time of year I love thinking about fun recipes to make for the upcoming holiday. I especially love coming up with a fun recipe that my daughter can help out with because what better way to spend some quality time together than bonding over a fun recipe that we get to eat afterwards? ;)

 The other day when we stopped in WalMart, my daughter wanted to look at the Easter aisle (of course) and on the other side of it, we spotted these new super Snack Packs. She already packs a Snack Pack pudding in her lunch every day for school (just like her momma used to because hello - they taste great!) so this new super size definitely jumped out at us, plus the new Easy Open lids make it easier to open now, so we picked some up. Then the next thing I know we are talking about making fun springtime snacks with them to celebrate Easter and having a little creative fun that resulted in buying some mix-ins for the Snack Packs.

Since we both LOVE to draw, we decided to make a snack that we could be creative with. One where we could 'draw' flowers, then plant those flowers in some 'dirt' and maybe add a cute little sign for fun! Before you knew it, we had selected our mix-ins choices, put them in our cart and we were ready to get going! 

I love the way they turned out. I loved getting to spend a little quality time with my girl making some fun food art and then I loved enjoying these delish treats afterwards. I firmly believe ANY way you can teach your kids to be creative is a wonderful thing . . .especially if they get to play with their food to do it! ;)

Directions:

- divide the Honey Maid grahams into pieces like in photo 
(**tip- use a spatula edge when breaking apart to get a clean straight line)
- begin 'drawing' flowers on the Nilla wafers and grahams using any technique you like
- to attach Nilla wafer 'flower' to straw, just squeeze some icing on back, push straw into icing and allow to dry
