I’ve had Easter on the brain and sat down to map out what will go into my children’s baskets this week. Sharing some adorable finds…
I’m organizing my post below as a kind of formula for making a fun Easter basket —
- Pick a basket.
- Pick something sweet.
- Pick something crafty.
- Pick something cuddly.
- Pick something to read.
- Pick a surprise (or two!)
Easter Basket Options.
We have these ones from BellaBean, which are adorable and were fantastic for urban living when I was low on space for stowing bulky baskets 11.75 months of the year. If I had had the space, I would have purchased these timeless Ballard ones, probably sans monogram, in the scallop white linen. But there are some really cute new options I found this year — how fun are these painted white buckets? And I love the pattern of these inexpensive ones from Target. You could also go with one of these affordable but classic-looking wicker styles from Target and add a personalized basket bow.
Easter Basket Sweets.
I had to get the Sugarfina quartet — one for each member of our family!
Easter Basket Arts + Crafts.
I already ordered my children the little sensory jar kits from Littlest Dough Shop — they have two spring options (one and two) and I ordered one of each for micro and mini — as well as the sticker books from Usborne, as they take a while to ship. I will say these little LCD tablets are phenomenal and have staying power — and are GREAT for both Church and travel. I say this with specific emphasis on Church as we started going to Church in person a few weeks ago after nearly two years of hiatus and mini can sometimes be a very loud scribbler with markers. Ha!
Easter Basket Stuffed Animals.
Easter Books for Children.
It is hard to overstate how much my son loves this book. We’ve been reading it year-round since last Easter. It is loosely based on / evocative of the “going on a bear hunt” book and both of my children love trying to spy the wolf’s tail on each page. This year, I’m tempted by the Peter Rabbit Tonies for mini!
Easter Basket Toys.
I am not above tucking in things like cups and toothbrushes that I would buy them otherwise!
Last but not least, a few Easter pajamas and accessories…
