Mischief Making Ideas

Easter Fun From SA Live

Did you catch us on SA Live with all the Easter fun?

Here's details on what we did, including what didn't make it on air.

Paper Towel Egg Dying

Step 1: Wrap the egg in a paper towel. Step 2: Put droplets of food coloring all over the paper towel. Step 3: Spray the paper towel with water and squeeze egg so the color transfers. Let dry for 3.5 hours and unwrap.

Bunny Go-Kart

Supplies Needed: Twinkie, Mini Nilla Wafers, a Bunny Peep, a small pretzel twist, icing for piping.

Cut a divot out of the middle section of the Twinkie to make a seat. Then simply place the bunny and steering wheel in the center, and stick the Nilla Wafers on the sides like wheels with the icing. 

Spring Pretzel Flowers

Supplies Needed: Snap Pretzels, White Chocolate Wafers, Spring M&Ms, parchment paper

Place pretzels on sheet of parchment paper. Please two white chocolate wafers on top of each pretzel. Microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Place M&Ms on top in the formation of a flower. Let dry.

Bunny Munch

Supplies Needed: 1 bag of popcorn, 2 bags of White Chocolate Melting Wafers, 1 bag of spring colored M&Ms, 1 container of pastel sprinkles, 1 cup of pretzels, parchment paper

Directions: Line a cookie sheet with parchment and lay out of the popcorn evenly. Sprinkle over the popcorn the M&Ms and pretzels. Melt the chocolate and drizzle all over the pan. Using to spoons, mix up the popcorn until the melted chocolate is evening distributed. Then, sprinkle the sprinkles on top for color. Will dry in roughly 90 mins and can be bagged up with a bow as a gift.

Spring Break Ideas from SA Live March 3rd

Did you tune into SA Live and catch our segment today on things to do at home during Spring Break with your kids?

If you missed it, here's what we demonstrated!

1. Lessons in kindness: mail a hug with a kind note to a friend or loved one, pack lunches for the homeless.

2. Drive-in movie night, complete with homemade box cars and a popcorn bar.

3. Go for a local hike and bring along a zip lock bag and masking tape. Find treasures along the hike then turn them into a craft when you get home.

4. Inventor's Afternoon. Find random things from throughout the house, grab glue and tape and let your little ones create. Our first Official Mischief Makers Book Club Newsletter goes out March 21st and will include directions to build your own bone launcher. Get signed up today!

Happy Mischief Making!
