I can't believe this will be the babies' second Easter! Last year, they were just 8 months old and really had no idea what was going on. I know they will get what to do with an Easter basket this time around and I have had so much fun picking out items for their baskets!
You could fill my Easter basket with Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs and I'd be thrilled but since the babies still think raisins are the most delicious treat in the world, I've been planning baskets of activities instead of sweet treats. I'm happy to keep them blissfully unaware that things like peanut butter eggs exist.
Here are the things the Easter Bunny will be bringing to our house:
I like any excuse to get new books. This year, the Easter Bunny is bringing Happy Easter, Mouse! and Flora and the Chicks. I also love Llama Llama Easter Egg and Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny!, which the Easter Bunny brought last year. You can read about a few other Easter basket books from the babies' first Easter here.
I think activities are the best basket fillers. The babies are at a point where they like to do arts and crafts, drawing, and "writing" in notebooks. Plus, I love having new things to keep them busy so it's a win-win for everyone to do activity baskets. This year the Easter Bunny is bringing sidewalk chalk, stamping markers, tiny note books, bubbles, magnets, and gel window clings. Basically everything was from the Target Dollar Spot (my fave!). I also grabbed wooden letters on clearance at Target. We will do some kind of art project with them and hang them in our playroom!
Last year, I found bunny ears and they will be going in the Easter baskets again this year. I also found cute little sunglasses (or "eyes" as the babies call them) in the Target Dollar Spot.
So there you have it. Easy, affordable Easter baskets full of fun things to do. What is the Easter Bunny bringing to your house this year?
