With Easter right on our heels I made these adorable little chocolate eggs nest for Ava to take to school last week. They were so easy to throw together and they turned out to be a huge hit! I placed two small nests in cute Easter ziplock baggies I found out the Dollar Tree! It was a festive snack for her class.
This week the kids are on Spring Break!! Woot woot! It makes me wish I was in school again, just to have fun/care-free week off.
