I saw something similar to this on Pinterest one day last week, but could not find any instructions and so I decided to try to make them myself and write things out clearly so that other people could make them too. Whoever it was that did the original ones I thank you for the Inspiration!
There was no internet to inspire me when my children were growing up. No craft Television. No cooking television, etc. We had Madame Benoit on Take 30 and Wok with Yan and Julia Child, all great cooks, but nobody did things like this.
For this type of inspiration I would have relied on family magazines such as Chatelaine, or Women's Day, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping. And I would have had to have the money to buy them. Young mums today are so very blessed to have the wealth of inspirational resources that they have at their fingertips!
If you are a religious family, and we happen to be, the making of these would make a great family activity and provide a great opportunity for you to create them together with your children and talk about the Easter Story.
They are very easy to assemble and I can't think of any child that would not enjoy this activity and get something out of learning about the Resurrection Story. You can find a picture story of it here if you are interested.
We have a family that lives not too far of us. They have three lovely children. These children were kind enough to bring Todd some get-well cards a few month back and a small stuffed toy for comfort. These cookies are destined for them. I know they will appreciate them!
It is at times like this that I miss having my grandchildren close by. These are things we could be doing together, but alas, at least I have these children around the corner! You have to count your blessings where you find them!
These are really easy to make and cute when they are done. I had fun planning and making them. I hope you will too!
