Vegan Easter!

Wondering what to do on Easter if you can't paint eggs? Well, there's a variety of things you could do
1: You could paint rocks or plastic eggs, etc.
2: You could paint cookies.
3: You could paint/frost cupcakes.
4: You could not paint anything, but still have an Easter hunt with plastic eggs.
Or 5: You could paint vegetables! That is what we did this year, we painted a variety of vegetables (zucchini, yellow squash, yams, spaghetti squash, carrots, acorn squash, etc) with food paint.
Then we made little graham cracker houses out of graham crackers, candies, and frosting to hold it all together. (a lot like gingerbread houses) You could make your own frosting, or you could use Pillsbury frosting if you're low on time. 
Or you could do an Easter hunt with plastic eggs, but I would recommend only doing the hunt or the houses, because that's a lot of sugar.
And if you chose to paint veggies, what would you do with all those painted veggies? Well, you could wash them, and then make tempura! (That's what we did, this recipe is amazing, just make sure you have some other food, because sweets, and fried veggies aren't the most healthy meal ever.

Have a great easter!
