Sit back and enjoy a cup.

I met up with a few friends yesterday and I tried something completely out of my comfort zone.  Let me explain, I'm just not crafty or much of a cook.  That being said, I never give up the dream of someday transforming into a talented Martha Stewart like being.  One of the creative leaders of the group suggested we make homemade chocolate coconut Easter Eggs.  Of course I agreed-maybe this was my chance!  It turned out to be a lot of fun and as you can see from the pictures they don't look awful. So...if you're looking for a fun activity to do with a class it just might do the trick.  Our leader had the dough already mixed and in plastic bags.  You can melt the chocolate in a microwave and probably, depending on the age of your group, do the dipping.  But the shaping and decorating can be done by kids of all ages.   

Here's a recipe and a picture of my creations.

Luckily the teacher authors of TpT are VERY creative.  Come take a look at the wonderful products for all subjects and levels waiting for you.  Happy Spring!
