I know that it is hard to believe but Easter is RIGHT around the corner. As a mom, I’m always on the lookout for fun ways to take items that we love and eat on a regular basis, and jazz them up a bit with the seasons (like these awesome Mummy Juice Boxes for Halloween). Both of my kids get a huge kick out of things like this – and they were so excited to see these adorable “Little Chick” Snack Packs on the counter waiting for them after school!
These are super easy to make – they take under 5 minutes – and while I made the first round for my kids as a surprise, these are definitely something that kids can make themselves! These are great as an after school snack – but they would also make a great treat for a classroom party or a spring get-together!
To make these little chicks, I bought the Vanilla Snack Pack Pudding in the cake aisle at Walmart ($2.48 a pack – score!), some yellow sugar sprinkles, and some miscellaneous candies meant for cake decorating (found by all of the cupcake wrappers and colored sugar).
First, I took the top off of the Snack Pack (it popped right off thanks to the new EZ Open Lid). Then I spooned a bit of pudding from one of the other Snack Packs so it came right up over the top. My reasoning behind this was to avoid making a huge mess with the sprinkles – since the pudding was thick I took a gamble that it would stay in the cup for the amount of time it took me to flip it over into the sprinkles – and it did! This was awesome – because the sugar stayed contained in the bowl and my kitchen stayed clean!
Then I decorated these little guys with the candy pieces – making eyes, hair, arms, and legs. And of course – a beak! These make the perfect treat for Spring!
If you liked this idea – be sure to check out more of them at the Snack Pack website! A big thank you to Walmart and Snack Pack for the opportunity to get creative with this super fun project!
