You’ll need to watch this video at least twice: once to giggle to pieces over the 4-year-old pastry chef, and once to catch the recipe tips ‘n tricks. [3 mins 37 sec one way]
Also: Pete is a 4-year-old who is all kinds of comfy in the kitchen? I’m a little bit older than 4, and I still haven’t made red velvet anything.
Off I go to investigate what other 4-year-olds are baking these days.

Unlike last year, I’ve had reminders a-plenty about Easter.
I’m reposting this video to help me reflect on all that has happened in the past year (although after a mere 3 rounds of all that fluffiness, it’s a bit hard to reflect coherently).
But it’s also just all about the fluff.
Must have the fluff.

Quick, draw a bunny face!
Did you draw the whiskers? (Whiskers…such a fun word to say!)
Have the older ones help the younger ones wrap the chenille stems around a popsicle stick.
Read a story and do a round or two of hide-and-go-seek while waiting for the pink pompoms to dry.
Demonstrate helpful holding techniques, then help get people ready for their close-ups.
Instant grinnage, yes?

Is the Easter bunny a boy bunny or a girl bunny?
The Easter bunny? Well, the Easter bun…
‘Cause look here: they’re all wearing bow ties. See?
Boy bunnies wear bow ties, girl bunnies don’t.
So the Easter bunny is a boy bunny. What do girl bunnies wear and what do they do at Easter?
Girl bunnies wear…wait….
Goodness, thank you, I thought you’d never ask. Yes, please!
[Oh Happy Day]

Hey, do you still use your muffin pan to make muffins?
Make muffins? Pfffft…who does that anymore? Goodness no, not muffins. For muffins we use our electric muffin maker.
Today: coloring Easter eggs and finally using *all* of the colors in the package! Yay!
