I love any holiday that involves crafts and baking, and Easter is no exception. But I always have bigger dreams than I can execute. I envision myself a mini-Martha Stewart, and I’m more of a from-the-box-with jelly-beans-on-top kinda cook. So, if you’re in the same category, read on. I’ve gathered up some festive and easy-to-execute ways to make Easter memories with your family.
