Most holidays I try to make a little something for my kids. I was racking my brain trying to think if an original Easter idea. Then, I realized Easter is late this year, so I procrastinated. Well, of course, it snuck up on me but at least I had an easy idea that works up quick! You may know already my mini maker is unicorn obsessed, so I bring you the Unicorn Easter Egg. It’s tiny and cute, works up in less than an hour and is the perfect addition to a 6-year-old little girls Easter basket! Enjoy!
