Easter is just around the corner and that means candy, baskets, and eggs galore!
I put my daughter’s Easter basket together this weekend so I thought I would share what’s in it and maybe give you some ideas for your toddlers/kids.
A lot of people think I’m kind of a crunchy/granola mom because I don’t give my daughter tons of junk food, juice, or chips. But holidays are an exception and I got her some candy along with some non-candy items because she’s a kid and she deserves some candy on Easter.
I have browsed the Easter section at Target more times than I would like to admit. They have a lot of cute baskets but I couldn’t get myself to pay $15 for a stinkin’ Easter basket. I wanted to get a super cute, non-traditional one and make it all cutesy and be creative, but then I decided to just use the one I got her last year because it just doesn’t really matter. Simplify, right?? She’s not even 2 years old yet and won’t care if she’s using the same basket as last year, so neither do I (I have to keep telling myself it doesn’t matter).
The little wooden L hanging from the left handle is from Target. They have similar ones this year but I think they are pastel colors. It’s such a small way to personalize their basket without too much effort.
Pretty much everything is from Target because…duh.
Unicorn stickers, notepad, pencil and eraser pouch (We love unicorns around here)
Peel and stick reusable princess stickers (she’s OBSESSED with stickers)
Hatch and Grow egg with a toy inside (I think she will love this small activity)
Jelly Belly Spring Mix (from World Market)
Watermelon ring pop shaped like a bunny
Starburst jelly bean egg
Bunny PEZ dispenser (from World Market)
A Very Bunny Arizona book (thanks Costco)
Here are some other basket ideas:
A new swimsuit or coverup, some Spring/Summer sandals, pretend makeup, a movie, smaller books, small packs of Goldfish crackers or a box of Animal cookies, fig bars, small boxes of raisins, new jammies, a beach towel or beach toys, a new toothbrush.
The possibilities are endless.
What are you putting your kid’s Easter baskets??
