The kids have been sick all week, but yesterday they were finally well enough to return to school, giving me the chance to run some errands. I picked up some wheatgrass and a some of my favorite easter candy from the bulk section at the grocery store. These candies are as delicious as they are beautiful—chewy caramel and rich chocolate coated in a pretty turquoise candy shell. They only sell them at my local store during the Easter season, so I always treat myself to a tiny bag of them.
One of Tula’s preschool teachers taught us how to make little paper bag nests by trimming the top half off of a paper lunch sack and rolling it down. I cut the corners off of the wheatgrass and stuffed it into a milk glass vase, then tucked the nest and candy down in the middle—easy, cheap, and colorful. I can’t guarantee that there will be any eggs left in the nest on Easter, though.
