Then came Eliana's birthday this year. We filled up a jar with M&Ms in the colors of the rainbow. At the end of the party as we were cleaning up I stared at the jar and thought to myself, what can I do with all those M&Ms? And no, eat them was not the answer to that question. I had something cuter in mind :)
|Baby Chick M&M's!|
Originally I had wanted to see which one I liked the best, if I wanted to make them all with wings, or all with feet, or with feet and wings etc. but I couldn't pick one, so I made them all different :) They are all so cute! And of course Eliana prefers these baby chick M&Ms over regular M&Ms. I may or may not have created a monster...
Here are some tips:
1. Grab a bunch of yellow M&Ms (or other yellow candy).
2. Resist the urge to eat them immediately.
3. Commence drawing!
4. Admire your artwork.
5. Now eat! (don't they taste so much better than regular M&Ms? hehe)
These would be a cute addition to a lunch, or just to munch on. by the handful ;)
**please note that M&Ms are not completely peanut free or nut free, even the plain chocolate ones. They contain warnings on the label because they may contain peanuts due to cross contamination. As always with warnings, you are at your own risk. Even though Eliana's allergy isn't severe we buy Sixlets (which are peanut/nut free) instead now after learning of her allergy. These Baby Chick Chocolates could be made with Sixlets too!**
