I know St. Patrick's Day just got over with, but when I came across this pin I just had to share it with you. It's a great Easter basket idea for the kids when you don't want to just give candy and deal with the sugar high afterwards. Everybunny loves playdough, right?

My brother and I loved playdough when we were kids. In fact, we still have to hear about how we broke my Mom's favorite Spritz cookie making gun by shoving it full of playdough and letting it dry up in there. (Apparently, it was very traumatic for her when she found it a year later.)

I can't wait to try this! I am always trying to find different little things to make my nephews for holiday treats, and I am hoping they will like these Easter Bunny playdough carrots. Not only is it a great idea for their Easter baskets, but it also contains a recipe to make your own playdough, and save you a trip to the store. Score!

Try it, and let me know how it turns out!
