Jell-O Eggs–Pastel Colors for Easter
Dissolve two 4 ounce packages of unflavored gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water. After it cools to room temperature, whip in 8 ounces of Cool Whip and combine with 6 ounces of flavored Jell-O dissolved in 1 cup boiling water. Poor into lightly greased pan and refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours). Cut with egg shaped cookie cutter. Decorate with shredded coconut.
Make each child in the class a small, bunny face shaped cake. You can do this by baking a regular cake mix in a large jellyroll pan. When cooled, cut out circles for the head, and then two ear shapes. Then the children get to decorate it however they want. They can use frosting, coconut, jelly beans, licorice, sprinkles, etc. The children can eat their creations for snack.
