This year Mattie ended up in Ms. Katie’s class, OK we both asked for him too be in her class. She was his first preschool teacher and she has the most beautiful luxurious hair, when Mattie was 2 he would sit in her lap and just rub his face with her hair. She asked me to be her room Mom and that means a preschool Easter Party was in store.
When looking for ideas I found these cute cheeseball carrots from Blooming where I’m Planted
You can’t get any easier than this! Non of our kids had peanut allergies so I went for PBJ’s, it’s easy and most kids love it. A few weeks ago at G’mans school we did a PBJ Stewardship day where we made over 1000 PBJ’s for a homeless shelter. The Shelter taught us that to make a sandwich where the jelly does not soak the bread you have to do 2 things
- Use Jam, not Jelly – Jam is thicker and less runny
2.Mix the PBJ and Jam before you spread it on the bread
So being Miss Crafty I thought lets cut out these sammies with a cookie cutter in the shape of a bunny but when I bought the cutter I didn’t take into account that it was too big and so there was no cotton tail on this Peter!
So the type A that I am got out a circle cutter and smashed it to make an egg shape! I redeemed myself.
I put them on this plate with a green ribbon and I think they turned out pretty great!
I bought tablecloths at the dollar store and some cute plates and napkins (OK, I know it could use a cute center piece but hey I got things to do)
We served the egg shaped sandwiches with fruit and the cheeseball carrots. It was the perfect kid-friendly preschool Easter party.
That day they asked Mattie to say the prayer, makes a mom’s heart melt!
Unfortunately, Miss Katie had was not able to be at the party and I know how much she loves her kids. I took a picture of each one in bunny ears holding a stuffed ducky bought at the dollar store and made a collage in Picasa. I sent her an email saying, “Happy Easter. We Missed You”, she said it made her day!
Here is Mattie’s Pic, he’s such a ham.
