We’re on day 5,840 of shelter in place and today was the day I broke out the Magical Unicorn Recipes. We’ve done the puzzles, the board games the video games and it was time to switch it up.
I’ve learned the key to my sanity is to keep ideas packed away for when Reese gets bored and needs something new. Enter, anything unicorn! From unicorn slime (which has officially been banned in our house) to unicorn baking. If it has something to do with unicorns we’ve probably tried it because what tween girl doesn’t love unicorns.
This week we decided to pull out the baking pans and test out a few magical unicorn recipes. If you’re looking to get magical with your kids, check out this list. Some of the items are so easy you can let them loose in the kitchen alone (side note, cleanup not included).
Have a magical time in the kitchen with 18 Magical Unicorn Treats!

These unicorn popsicles are full of healthy ingredients and despite the bright colors, there’s not a drop of food coloring insight. Your kids will love them and you’ll love that they aren’t full of sugars and dyes.
Unicorn Popcorn // Crayons and Cravings
OMG, this is our go-to for movie night popcorn. It’s a good mix of sweet and salty and the melted chocolate goes amazing with popcorn. We always end up making two bowls because neither of us wants to share.
