I hope you are having a great day. I am actually writing this on Monday evening here and I am so glad this day is just about over!
I screwed up! I went in to make our grocery order as I do every week. I often put it in on Tuesday or sometimes even Wednesday to be delivered Thursday evening. I thought with Easter coming up I should put the order in early and do it today, but I was not early enough. Every delivery time from today until the Tuesday after Easter was booked.
Now we have plenty of food in the house. I bought some quick emergency rations last year and my husband even bought a few MREs so we would have food, but not what I wanted to make for Easter kind of food and we would have run out of eggs. I do have a stash of dehydrated eggs in our emergency rations, and they are surprisingly good scrambled and great for baking, but it's kind of hard to boil those and color them for Easter.
I felt so bad for not paying more attention to this. We have lived here in Germany for about six years now so you would think that by now I would remember that this is a Catholic nation and they actually close everything for high holy days, but nope, I still don't remember. So I quickly ran out to the store today and bought the things we would need to get us through until next week.
I had been getting things delivered for so long I had forgotten what a chore it is to carry all the groceries home half a mile. I am hoping this experience today will help me to remember to put my orders in on time for holidays from now on (and I'm making reminders in my iCal).
So . . . I thought in the spirit of forgetfulness, I would do another last minute treats and DIY crafts for Easter, just in case anyone else got caught unprepared for this holiday. There are so many good suggestions here you might want to make them even if you are already set for this holiday. You can never have too much Easter fun!
My sister, Stephanie, sent me this idea for the Easter tips.
Here Comes Peter Cottontail,
Hopping Down the Bunny Trail . . . Mix!
You can see all of ingredients in the photo:
Peanut Butter Crunch (or reg. if allergies)
Annie's Bunny Snack Mix
Easter Color M&Ms
Raisins in individual boxes
Mix the cereals, M&Ms, and crackers and put it all in the plastic eggs. Raisins stay in their little boxes and the marshmallows go in a little baggie. The kids can choose to mix them all up or eat them separately.
Forkly.com has some great ideas in their

It's quick, it's easy, and it's just too cute! Check out all of their amazing snack ideas on their website. It was difficult to choose a favorite. They have so many great ideas!
