Purchase a bag of jelly beans which have the following colors: red, green, yellow, orange, black, white, purple and pin jelly beans (Brach's miniature beans have all these colors!) Type or write up the poem (use the color to match each line is a nice touch) and attach to a bag of jelly beans OR place 1-2 of each color in a snack bag and attach the poem (postcard or business card size)

For the nests: 3 1/2 cups use chow mein noodles for corn flakes.
Combine marshmallows, butter, and vanilla plus food coloring in top of double boiler. Heat over hot water until marshmallows are melted. Stir in corn flakes gradually. Drop from tablespoon onto waxed paper and with hands, shape into a 9 inch wreath. Decorate with candied cherries or red hots.
For Easter Nests: Form them into little nests and put jelly beans in them for eggs.

My son's class is having a bunny brunch. The teacher has asked that healthy snacks be sent ie., fruits, veggies, or pretzels. Any suggestions for anything else? I imagine that everyone will send those things and then they'll have 20 of the same thing. This is for 4 to 5 year olds.

Try making popcorn, mixed with smarties, nuts etc. Maybe some dried fruit.
