Rainbow Fruit Pizza

 Happy Spring!
This is a great treat to make for a spring day. My kids loved the fun rainbow and the fresh fruit.

  • Prepared Sugar Cookies 
  • Prepared Fruit Dip
  • 4 Fruits (Rainbow Colors)
  • Knife
  1. Prepare your Sugar Cookies and Fruit Dip. Click the links to use my favorite recipes. 
  2. Chop your fruit into small cubes. 1/4 cup of each fruit is plenty. I used strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, and blueberries. 
  3. Spread your fruit dip on the cooled cookies.
  4. Add your chopped fruit on top of the dip to create a rainbow. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple!
  5. Enjoy!

  • If you don't like the fruit I used, just get something you like of the same color.
  • This is a great treat to make for many occasions. You could use any cookie shape and make it into a fruit pizza. 

The Best Soft Sugar Cookie

I Love These Sugar Cookies!

These are the easiest and best tasting cut out sugar cookie I have had. Everyone I make them for agrees! Best part is that you don't have to chill the dough. 


  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350℉
  2. Use a mixer to cream together the butter and sugar until smooth, at least 3 minutes. 
  3. Beat in eggs and extract. 
  4. In a separate bowl mix baking powder, salt, and flour. Slowly add to the wet ingredients. When the dough becomes to stiff for your mixer, pull it out and finish kneading the dough by hand. 
  5. Do not chill the dough. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out your cookies.
  6. Bake at 350℉ for 6-8 minutes. Let cool until firm enough to move to a cooling rack. 
  • If you have to chill the dough just set it out to warm up before rolling it out. 
  • Exchange 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract for 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract for a sweeter cookie. 
  • Start out with 6 minutes of cooking time, add more time as needed. They should be only lightly browned on the bottom for a softer cookie.

Painting Mess Free

My sister did this with her kids for Easter. So Cute!

  • Canvas
  • Paints
  • Plastic wrap
  • Newspaper
  • Paint brush 
  • Black permanent marker


  1. Have all of your materials out and ready to use. Put the canvas on newspaper.
  2. Squirt dots of paint on the canvas.
  3. Place plastic wrap on top of the paint and wrap it around the edges of the canvas.
  4. Let your child rub the paint around. Having the plastic wrap over the paints makes this safe and mess free for little fingers.
  5. After the canvas is all painted, peal the plastic wrap off and let it dry.
  6. To make the bunny footprints, have your child sit in a chair with clean feet.
  7. Paint one foot with white paint. Make sure it is thick so you get the whole footprint.
  8. Stamp the foot on the canvas so their toes are pointing down and there is space for the ears above the heal.
  9. Do the last 2 steps with the other foot or another child's foot. If you have more kids just add 1 foot for each of them.
  10. To add the ears to each bunny, use a paint brush to paint the white long ears first. After that drys a little, add a center pink stripe for the inside of the ears. Use that same pink paint and add a small dot in the center of the heal for the bunny nose.
  11. Once all of the paint is dry you can add the details. Use the black permanent marker to draw a face, write Happy Easter, and add names and ages by each foot.
  12. Hang your canvas and cherish those little toes or you could even give this as a gift.
  • You could do the mess free painting for any occasion and with any colors of paint. 
  • If you do hand or foot prints be ready to clean them off between each. 
  • If your canvas is small enough you could put it into a zip lock bag for the mess free painting.

Bunny Kids Painting

I loved how easy this was. My kids had so much fun doing some finger painting with this project.

  • Small Canvas
  • Washable Paints
  • Stiff Paint Brush 
  • Bunny Stencil
  • White Paint

  1. Get all of your materials out and ready and cover your painting surface when you have kids doing the finger painting. 
  2. Paint the whole canvas with all of the colors you chose. Use light colors first, like yellow. If the colors start to mix to much they will turn brown. 
  3. Let it dry completely. 
  4. Pick the spot you would like to put your stencil. Tape one edge down with painters tape. 
  5. Use a stiff paint brush to paint in the stencil using a tapping motion. Do not have a lot of paint on the brush and be gentle so the brush does not get pushed under the edges of the stencil.
  6. Pull the stencil off when you are done painting.
  7. Let dry and enjoy the artwork through the season. 


  • You could use many different paint colors and stencil shapes for this project. For Example; red, white and blue with a star, greens with a shamrock, kids favorite colors with their initials, etc...
