Hoppy Easter Bag Toppers | free printable | simplykierste.com

My girls want to take Easter treats to their friends and classmates, so I created a cute printable bag topper that will be just the perfect thing!

Bag toppers are so fun, and such an easy and cute way to package yummy Easter treats for your kids, classrooms, teachers, friends, and more!  You just staple them onto the top of a sandwich bag, which is also an extremely inexpensive way to package treats.

Here's everything you need to make your own!

SUPPLIES:

Easter Marshmallow Bunny Peeps , or other Easter candy

- sandwich bags

- Hoppy Easter bag toppers (you can download at bottom of post)

-stapler

DIRECTIONS:

1. Place Peeps in sandwich bag and close.

2.  Print the bag topper, and cut along the bottom of the pink stripe, and up along the sides of all three of the stripes, like this:

3.  Fold in half, as pictured above.

4.  Staple to the top of your bag!  I folded my bag down just a little bit, so the topper would fit just above the Peeps.  Depending on what you have in your bag, you can make the same adjustment.

5. I like to hide the staples with washi tape!  :)

That's it!  SO easy, and SO cute!

Chocolate-Covered Peeps Pops

Chocolate-Covered Peeps Pops | simplykierste.com

My kids love Peeps so we usually have them around Easter, and today I had some out for another project I'm working on. At the same time my kids happened to be begging for the open bag of chocolate chips in the pantry, AND I had a bag of lollipop sticks on the counter that were ready to be put away. What happened next is what I'm calling kismet.  Chocolate-Covered Peeps Pops. My kids loved these so much, they were gone in about 30 seconds flat.  I'm lucky I even got a picture of two for this post, because they were inhaled so quickly.  I had chocolate-y mouths with huge smiles, and I was one of them! When you bite into a chocolate-covered peeps pop, you taste the creamy chocolate, … ...read more

Why our kids have chores + an age-appropriate chores guideline

Why our kids have chores + free printable chore guide | simplykierste.com

Ever since I posted my cleaning schedule and talked about my kids having their own chores, I've had a lot of comments, questions, and e-mails about our chores routine. It's been on my mind quite a bit lately too, because this year each of my six kids are turning ages where we can add a few more chores that they are able to do. We also moved from a larger home to a tiny apartment that we are living in while our new house is being built, and it's definitely required me to make a few changes, so I figured it was a good time to write out how our family handles chores for kids, and more importantly, why. We start chores young at our house--they are are one of the most vital parts of our family … ...read more

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies | simplykierste.com

My kids were clamoring for oatmeal cookies this week, and when they do, I usually make Oatmeal Scotchies.  When I realized we were out of butterscotch chips, I decided just to go ahead and use chocolate chips instead, and then I got a little crazy and added some peanut butter too.  Oh MY goodness!  The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is always delicious, and then when you throw in the hearty goodness of the oats, it's an absolute winning combination. My kids loved them, and they were gobbled up so fast--I really should have doubled the batch.  I did manage to sneak out a few to save for school lunches, and a few for a friend.  Whether you're serving them to your family, … ...read more

DIY Finances Ledger

DIY FInances Ledger | free printables | simplykierste.com

A couple of years ago I posted about the kitchen mini command center I made for our Texas home. One of the things that I mentioned was my bills and finances ledger. I've had so many e-mails and questions about it that I decided to give it its very own post!  Even though my command center has had to be modified since we moved to New York, that finances ledger has remained the same--I've had it for a long time. I use this ledger almost every day. I pay the bills and handle the finances for our family, so I use it to stay organized and keep track of all of our financial information. My husband is also able to look at it whenever he wants to, and see exactly where we're at and what's going … ...read more

Lemon Oreo Truffles

Lemon Oreo Truffles | simplykierste.com

Have you tried the new Lemon Oreos?  Oh my goodness, they are SO yummy! I'm just slightly obsessed with all things lemon, so I was really excited to see them. My favorite way to eat Oreos is actually as an Oreo Truffle.  (Which if you haven't tried, you need to head straight to your to-do list and add it immediately.)  When I saw the new lemon flavor, I knew exactly what I wanted to make...Lemon Oreo Truffles. They did not disappoint! Dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with lemon zest, they're perfect for spring and Easter! They really could not be any easier to make, and they have just three ingredients!  Oreos (yummy), cream cheese (yummy), and white chocolate (yummy).  See … ...read more

Homemade Easter grass

homemade easter grass | simplykierste.com

Homemade Easter grass is a fun variation that's inexpensive and adorable! Plastic grass is really cheap, I know, but homemade grass is so much cuter! :)   All you need is: (**these are affiliate links**) -shredder -cardstock   I like using the textured Bazzil cardstock, which is a little thicker, but you can use any kind you like. I also recommend using solid colors--a pattern will most likely be unrecognizable once shredded. Empty out your shredder, then run one color of cardstock through at a time. I used 3 sheets of 12x12 paper per color, and it made enough to fill two pails to the halfway point. Once one color is done, remove the pieces, then do the … ...read more

Bunny bait trail mix

Bunny Bait Trail Mix | simplykierste.com

We're into snacks at our house.  There might be three main meals, but there are at least 42 other times in the day that my kids want to eat.  My baby (yes, she's almost two, but she's my baby!!) asks every 5 seconds for a "nack", and I pretty much always acquiesce.  If you saw her cute face, I bet you would too!  When the holidays come around, I love to do simple snacks for our own little celebration, and with Easter coming, that means it's time for our favorite Bunny Bait Trail Mix! This fun mix is perfect to munch on during any Easter gathering--as favors, in a cute bowl as an appetizer, or even as place cards.
