I'm thinking of making this a no-junk-from-China holiday, as well as a no-candy-of-mysterious-origins holiday (though I have always wanted to do a marshmallow roast with a Peep, just to see what happens) (though there's plenty of research about that here). I've also got zero bucks this holiday season, so it's also a no-cute-stuff-from-Terra-Toys holiday, too. I did already spring for this adorable bunny pattern. I think I'll make some sugar cookies in the dead of night and use them as the sweet treat. Though I've always had a fantasy about one of those big hollow hard-sugar eggs that you peek inside to see a little scene... I don't know if I've ever seen one of them in real life, but I read The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes about ten million times growing up and I do love it so, and that's what she brings the little boy at the end. Instructions to make one are here, if I get it together to give it a go I will let you know, stay tuned.
Though perhaps I should just continue to take advantage of the fact that my kids aren't a hundred percent aware that Easter is ALL about the sugar.... that surely won't be the case for very much longer...
