Easter Countdown: Egg #6, #7 & #8

Egg #6: Maddie selected an egg that matched a package of glittery Easter stickers from The Dollar Store and used them to finish making the Easter cards we started on the rolled egg day. I ended up making a cute little cover for the cards from Wordle too!

Egg #7: The next egg matched with a package of fun bunny shaped straws from The Dollar Store (see a trend here?). Maddie is in love with them and MUST have one in her cup at all times!

Egg #8: Our next egg said it was to time to make a special Easter treat. My plans were to make Cheerio and m&m treats similar to Rice Krispy treats but then I saw this recipe for Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies and our plans changed. I have a weakness for coconut. We swapped Easter colored m&m's out for chocolate chips and they were delicious! Maddie was so proud to do almost all of the mixing and pouring herself and my surprise she is very good at turning the mixer on and off without making a huge mess. As a surprise for daddy she packaged a few cookies up with a special tag too!
