Easter candy pomander eggs

We know St. Paddy’s Day hasn’t quite passed yet but we’ll be swapping our green decor for lighter, more Easter-y hues quite soon!  Starting with these fun candy pomander eggs, created using yummy Easter Smarties:

For me, Easter is all about the pretty, pastel colors of spring, a celebration of starting a new season..

This was taken last April with our then 10-month old, our first Easter together as a family of three.  It was our best one yet! 
 to snack on Smarties and am okay to add them into my now 21-month old’s Easter basket because they’re a low calorie treat, only 25 cals/roll!  That means #IAmaSmartie mom, huh ;)
With seeing the pretty Easter pastel colors of Smarties, I wanted to try them as a display as well.  After snagging a bag at Dollar General {see my full shopping trip here} I came home and looked around for the plastic Easter eggs that was in our little guys basket last year.  Darn, must have chucked them during our recent move.  Luckily I have 2 cartons of eggs in my fridge ;)  After cleaning them out, I started hot glueing Smarties in rows across each egg until it looked like this:

Cute, huh!
Such a fun, simple kids craft, too!

 Oh, and the Easter bunny dropped off a giant load of Smarties to my house just for one lucky reader so stay tuned!  In the meantime, check out Smarties on FB, Pinterest, Twitter & YouTube.
