Layer shredded lettuce and carrots on the bottom of small green plastic baskets (the containers that strawberries come in work well). Place cooked chicken nuggets onto the "Easter grass" lettuce. Serve Ranch dressing with the nugget "eggs" and salad. Toss in a few colorful jelly beans to jazz up the Easter basket meal.
Make sandwiches cut with cookie cutters shaped like an egg, baby chick, or bunny. Use a variety of sandwich fillings such as PB&J or egg salad. Try strawberry jelly and cream cheese, peanut butter and bananas, or peanut butter and marshmallow fluff for a fun food twist.
For dessert, bake cupcakes before the party and let the children frost and decorate their own. Divide butter cream or vanilla frosting into separate bowls and place a few drops of food coloring in each bowl. Bright pastel colors can be created by mixing red and blue, or blue and yellow (the less drops added, the lighter the color). Frost the cupcakes and decorate with M&Ms, icing pens, sprinkles, and mini-chocolate eggs.
