Tomorrow, the Mini Cooper club will participate as a group in the Dillsboro Easter Parade again this year. We went to last year’s event, although we didn’t have our Mini yet so we couldn’t be in the parade. This year, we will be part of the procession, and I needed to get a few things done so we could hold our own in the decorations area. I got this inflatable rabbit after Easter last year and saved it for use this year.
I had some magnet sheets left from making ornaments for the Holiday Parade last December. These were pulled out to make eggs.
First, the top surface was sprayed with glue, then the wrapping paper was smoothed over it. Several were made and they were allowed to dry overnight.
Egg shapes were cut out. I got five big eggs from these sheets.
DH found a cute bunny banner for the windshield.
I had literally hundreds of these foam stickers in flower, bunny and egg shapes. I thought it would be fun to fill some egg bags with them to hand out to the kids on the route. The stickers weren’t heavy enough to give any weight to the bag, so I picked up some chocolate marshmallow rabbits and some Easter bubble blowing sticks at the dollar store.
I started making the little bags, about 20 of them. The parade is only two blocks, so there isn’t much time to hand out a lot.
Each bag got a chocolate bunny, a bubble stick, and a handful of stickers.
I closed the bags using the stickers too, and put them in a basket large enough to hold them all. This will be easy to carry as I walk the route next to the cars.
So, we are ready. I have my Easter Bonnet, the car decorations, and the goodies to hand out. I just hope it doesn’t rain! DH has a really cute idea that will only work if it is sunny, so we will see. I’ll make my side dish in the morning to take, and I’ll give you that recipe later. It is a new salad dish with corn and tomatoes. I hope to bring you the parade and the day’s activities on Sunday. Have a great holiday weekend!
What are your plans for the weekend?
