It’s hard to believe that Easter is just a few short weeks away. After a long winter here in the Northeast, the holiday is a welcome sign of spring. We always spend Easter with family – and there are lots of kids. This year, I was trying to think of a way to make sure everyone takes home an Easter basket without having to go overboard.
I drew my inspiration after seeing mini Easter baskets on CelebratewithHershey.com and decided that having an Easter Candy Buffet for the kids would be a fun addition to our Easter dinner tradition.
I used the amazing assortment of HERSHEY’S Easter Candy, like WHOPPERS Robins Eggs, HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Robin Eggs, JOLLY RANCHER Jelly Beans, REESE’S Peanut Butter Eggs and CADBURY Creme Eggs (just to name a few) that I was sent.
The pails were purchased at the craft store for less than $1.00 each, I personalized each one with the child’s name and a permanent paint pen. As an option, you could also let each child decorate their own pail with stickers, markers or anything else you have on hand.
Setting up the candy buffet was easy – I picked up a few mini glass containers and also used some I already had. and cute chalkboard signs helped identify some of the candies – and the best part, I can reuse everything again.
On Easter, I can have the kids enjoy some candy in the moment and have them fill their pail with their own personalized candy assortment. Everyone’s happy and it’s fun for the kids to see all the candy that the Easter Bunny left for them to choose from.
