Everything Easter Egg-stravaganza - PEEPS sugar free receipe and Easter Basket idea giveaway


Welcome to Saturdays edition of Everything Easter Egg-stravaganza where you will find a YUMMY sugar free recipe and another giveaway. Enjoy!



Everything Easter Basket Filler Idea:



Placing books in our Children's Easter baskets is one more opportunity to inspire them to read. Choose a new book they have been asking or maybe another book in the series they are currently reading. For your teenagers who love gift cards think about purchasing a local bookstore gift card to place in their Easter Basket. To save money head to your local Goodwill, thrift store, half price books or Children's consignment stores to purchase gently used books.




Today's Egg-stravaganza Giveaway:



Through the use of kid appealing illustrations and words that make sense to little people author Kathleen Long Bostrom assists us as Moms and Dads in answering questions our children have about God in away that relates to them in the book Kids Tyndale book "Questions from little hearts".

This book combines 4 Little Blessings volumes (What is God Like? What Is Prayer? What About Heaven? Are Angels Real?), all of which use whimsical rhyming text to answer questions about God, heaven, angels, and prayer. Little Blessings “questions” books are known for their heartwarming text and delightful multicultural characters. Each question is answered using Scripture, fun poetry, and the adorable characters. The questions include: What is God Like? What Is Prayer? What About Heaven? Are Angels Real? The answers are theologically sound and thorough, yet child-friendly. Bible references follow each section. You can purchase this great book at the 24/7 MOMS store in the Easter department.

See a preview of this adorable book "Questions from little hearts" HERE.
You can view illustration and excerpts form the book.

24/7 MOMS and Tyndale Kids are giving away one Little Blessings "Questions from little hearts" book.

What a kool recipe..I actually did know that PEEPS came sugar free but most people don't. My dad loves PEEPS but he is diabetic. He says the sugar free taste just like the regular, he says the only difference is that they aren't as crunchy. Anyways, thanks for sharing this recipe.

Here I thought you were going to post a Peeps craft. The St. Paul, Minnesota newspaper runs an annual contest for a Peeps diorama. They get lots of reader submissions -- I believe this year they may have expanded the entries to also include video. It's just weird enough to be memorable.

I never developed a taste for PEEPS but my daughter likes 'em. Good to know they come in a sugar free variety.

I love PEEPS and here is one fun fact from the PEEPS website: "In the early 1950's it took 27 hours to make 1 peeps chick, today it takes 6 minutes.

Great website!
