We just have a sweet tooth here at Kids Cloud. Any opportunity to indulge is as good as any in our books. With kids heading home for the Easter Holidays, we’ve been scouring the internet for yummy treats and dishes which can be made with kids. Below are our top 7.
1 - 4. We just love the Kids Cooking Activities website which is chock full of yummy kids recipes (let’s face it, we’re big kids too!). For Easter, they didn’t disappoint and have managed to deliver 4 of our top 7 recipes. They win points for being quick and easy to make, and for throwing in a bit of sweet with some sneaky healthy dishes
1. Bird Easter Nest
Ingredients: 1- 1/3 Cup flaked coconut 1/3 Cup sugar 2 Tablespoons flour 1/8 teaspoon salt 2 egg whites ½ teaspoon vanilla Directions: In a mixing bowl, combine coconut, sugar, flour and salt. Stir in egg whites and vanilla; mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Press thumb into each cookie to make an indentation. Bake at 325 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Let cool add a drop of frosting and add jelly beans or chocolate mini eggs in centre.
2. Toad in the hole
Make this breakfast idea into an Easter tradition. Add piece of toast in a skillet cut out the middle with a oval cutter or other shape cutter. Crack an egg in the hole. Cook both sides until golden brown or however you like your eggs cooked. Decorate to make a chick using olives for eyes and cut pepper for beak, feet and wings.
3. Carrot Veggie Toasts
Cut a slice of bread into a carrot shape or use a cookie cutter. Spread cream cheese or other spread on top. Sprinkle shredded carrots on the bottom half of your carrot, to resemble the orange carrot part and add chopped broccoli to the tops for the stems.
4. Easter Bunny Sandwich
Here is a healthy bunny theme lunch idea. Use a bagel for the base or cut out a circle from a slice of bread. Slice your vegetables to prepare the face including:
2 cucumber slices, cut crosswise on an angle, so they look like ears
4 thin celery slices to form the whiskers
1 cherry tomato, cut in half for the nose
Radish and olive slices for the eyes
Peel thin strings off a parsley stem to form the mouth; 1 egg
Once your ingredients are ready, you can fry your egg. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat. Place a metal circle cookie cutter on the frying pan to make the round egg shape and crack an egg in. Cover with a lid until yolk is cooked to desired doneness and season with salt and pepper. Place the egg on the bread and assemble the other ingredients to form the face.

7. Easy Banana Cake with Chocolate Chips
Ok so we cheated with this last one. We should probably have been looking for carrot cakes, but we got distracted by this yummy treat which uses up those pesky ripe bananas and even throws in some chocolate to boost! So, if you’re like us and love banana, chocolate, and cake, here you go. You’re welcome!
