8 Day Easter Week Advent & Printables

I love to find fun ways to teach my kids about the real meaning behind our holidays and today's Easter Week Advent printables do that! Mandy from Sugarbee Crafts has come up with this Easter Advent  with daily activities for your family from the Sunday before Easter until Easter Sunday.  She also created some free printables to go with it (which you can find below).

Polka Dot Cake

Here are some helpful tips and tricks for constructing a rainbow polka dot cake, decorated on the outside with the petal cake style.  

In this post, I'll focus on tips & tricks for execution rather than sharing a full recipe. Since you can find recipes for both of these types of cakes online already, I've linked to some recipes at the end of this post. 

For Talia's 8th birthday party, she wanted a polka dot birthday party. I knew that I wanted to make a cake surprise for her with a rainbow polka dot cake. I wasn't sure how I would decorate it on the outside until I came across what is called a petal cake which is the technique I used to frost the exterior- I love the effect!

How to Make a Polka Dot Cake


I used store bought cream cheese frosting for between the layers and a crumb coat (because I was worried that I would run out of the homemade cream cheese frosting that I used for the rainbow part).

Rainbow Grilled Cheese

A couple years ago, for St. Patrick's Day we made rainbow grilled cheese and I thought it was such a fun idea that could be used any time you want to make lunch more fun!  I had a few people ask how to make it, so I put the instructions here.

Rainbow Grilled Cheese Recipe


All you need to create this colourful meal is bread, butter, white cheese, and food colouring.

Start by grating your cheese (we used havarti mixed with mozarella) and separate into four bowls.  This article recommends some of the best cheeses for melting and getting a stringy effect- which is a big bonus for rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches!
