I am excited to share what I am doing for an Easter basket and an easy Easter craft I did this weekend. When I was little I remember getting an Easter basket filled with candy and toys – my son is too young for a ton of candy but I have got toys covered! I also wanted to ensure we had an easy craft for Easter that my family could enjoy together and I found one!
Last year when he was still under a year I bought an Easter basket and started filling it with fun goodies and items he needed at the time.
- New sippy cups
- Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles
- New bath toys
- Summer hat
- Plush bunny
This year my son is a bit older and I haven’t gotten the basket together YET but here are my items I plan to stuff the Easter Basket with:
- Local baseball team gear
- We are attending a Washington Nationals game the week after Easter so I am getting him a new T-shirt and hat
- More bubbles (he loves them)
- Crayons/ book
- New sunglasses
- Bunny ears to wear for family dinner (or at least 30 seconds to get a photo J)
- Easter board book
- I plan on stalking the Target $1 section for other cheap basket stuffers!
Now for our easy Easter craft – my son is still young to do any crafts that really require concentration so this one was perfect and a bonus – we got to enjoy the awesome weather! Here is what we did:
- Buy poster board and trace an egg on it
- Take tape and place it over the egg in whatever design you want
- Take side walk chalk and a small cup of water and head out to the driveway/ side walk!
- Show your child how to dip the chalk in the water
- This is totally optional – but it makes the chalk more paint-like
- Have your child draw all over the poster board
- Once they are done (or in my case he started wandering) cut out the egg and peel off the tape
- If the egg is actually colored in when you take the tape off you will have neat white stripes. In our case we had a ton of whitespace but hey it was fun and Landon LOVED doing this. There is always next year for my little Monet
Hope you found a good idea or 2 on how to celebrate the upcoming holiday in this post.
Till next time, Tiff
