This year I was inspired to do something different for Easter by a group of ladies I recently met. We don’t know many people in the village but I thought it would be a great opportunity to not only meet some new people but also to bless them as well. And the idea is just so simple!
The idea is very basic, make or buy some sweet treats, parcel them up and deliver them to friends/neighbours/total strangers. It’s ideal for children to get involved with and you can make it as complex as you like.
To make the parcels you need:-
– Sweet treats (we made cornflake cakes and cupcakes)
– Tissue paper
Start by making your sweet treat. If the children are getting involved cornflake nests work perfectly as they are so easy to do and children of any age can have a go.
Whilst you are waiting for your treats to be ready, cut out a circle shape on your card. This will form the base of your parcel so you need it to be a fairly decent size. I drew around a bowl that we had (to give you some idea of size)
Place the base in the centre of your tissue paper and add the sweet treats.
Pull the tissue paper up around the base and scrunch, fasten with ribbon.
Attach a label, which can be as basic or as detailed as you like. We went with ‘Eat Me’ on one side and Meg wrote ‘Happy Easter’ on the reverse.
I told you it was easy 🙂
I would love to hear if any of my readers decide to bless their neighbours and friends with something similar to this. Do let me know!
