How to Keep Your Kids Busy this March Break

March 2nd, 2018 | No Comments | Posted in For Kids

It’s almost Spring Break all across the country. Kids are getting excited and parents are looking for creative ideas to make sure everyone is having a great time.

Make some new memories this week and try some of these fun activities with your family.

Hot Chocolate Station

Soon it will be summer and hot chocolate will be a memory of the past. Have one last hot chocolate celebration. Get some cocoa mix, fun toppings and cute cups and let your kids get creative. Pair this with a family movie and everyone will have a great night!

Glow Stick Fun

There are so many fun things to do with glow sticks! Snap a glow stick then carefully cut it open and pour it into a jar. The jar will glow all night and makes a great lantern for a sleepover! You could also insert snapped glow sticks into white balloons and created cool glow in the dark balloons. Make your house light up all night!

A wonderful book to pair with this activity is God Made Light by Matthew Paul Turner. A beautiful story for children about the creation of light and how God’s light can shine through all of us.

Crayon Art

Find a canvas and all those extra crayons you have around the house. Hot glue the crayons onto the canvas and get ready for a beautiful artistic creation to form right in front of your eyes. Place your canvas outside (if it’s hot where you live) and the crayons will melt. Otherwise, you can do this indoors using a hair dryer. Your kids will love hanging their crayon art up on their walls!

Recycle Bin Bowling

Find some empty plastic bottles in your recycling bin and use them to create a fun game of bowling. Fill them with water and add some food coloring and the kids can bowl all day! This is a great driveway activity.

The best part about Spring Break is spending time together as a family. Try some of these ideas to make your week extra fun!

April 4th, 2017 | No Comments | Posted in For Kids

I’m not sure about you but around CHRI we’re just a little bit of obsessed with Mini Eggs… in fact in may be a problem how much we love them ;)

Which is why we were overjoyed to find a roundup of recipes that all use Mini Eggs! Desserts made with our favourite Easter candy, that’s what we call a win-win!

These are 17 of the best Cadbury Mini Eggs recipes from around the internet.
Perfect for Easter baking!

It’s a magical time of year, my friends.  A time when a devlish old friend creeps out from hiding and reappears on grocery shelves everywhere.  Who is this dangerous acquaintance, you might ask?  CADBURY MINI EGGS.  You guys, I have SUCH a problem with these little guys!  Oh man, they are SO good!  I eat them by the bagful handful.  Seriously. ???? My sisters are as addicted as I am, and every year we send each other gleeful texts when we spot them on the shelves.  I can not walk by one of the mini sized bags without grabbing one.  It is physically impossible.  I wish I was kidding.

Each year I grab several large bags as well, with the intent to make the cookies that are first on this list, and I usually end up just snacking away most of them.  I was thinking wistfully about those cookies and decided to share that recipe link with you, as well as other Cadbury Mini Eggs recipes that are sure to make your Easter season an especially fattening and delightful one.  I have my eye on several to make in the next month.  (I’m looking at you, Cadbury Magic Bars . . .)

So, without further ado, I present to you 17 of the best Cadbury Mini Eggs Recipes from around the web.  Happy baking!
