    For The Easter Basket

    I’ve been playing Easter Bunny and putting together a little basket of goodies every year since Bella was born. I think Josh thought I was nuts going through the effort when she was just 5 months old but it’s just as much for me as it is for the children. Things like Easter, Birthdays and Christmas were never really a big deal in our family when I was growing up and I am determined for that not to be the case for my children. I love any excuse to celebrate and do something special for them.

    So I thought I would share some ideas for filling an Easter Basket. I did share a similar post a few years back here. As I have done this a few times before now, I actually already has most of the bits around the house. It certainly does not need to cost the earth or be super extravagant. This year I have kept it simple and just put a couple of Easter books in, a stuffed toy each, some bunny ears, a bag of Easter themed marshmallows and lastly some Kinder chocolate goodies from their Easter range which is available in all major supermarkets (apart from the Giant Eggs which are exclusive to Tesco and Ocado).

    Other good non chocolate items to include are things like hair clips/bows, play doh, craft supplies, bubbles, stickers and even clothes. In the first one I ever did for Bella I put a little Easter romper in there.

    We have some lovely plans with both family and friends this year and I can’t wait to celebrate Easter with our loved ones. There will be roast lamb, Easter egg hunts, my annual Easter cheesecake and lots of country dog walks I’m sure!

    Bella’s Easter Basket

    One of my favourite things about Easter (apart from roast lamb and consuming copious amounts of mini eggs of course) is playing Easter Bunny. I love filling up a pretty basket with some cute goodies for Bella to open on Easter Sunday and this will actually be the third one I have done for her. I can’t wait to see her little face when she finds it, egg surprises are her favourite thing ever so the Kinder Bunny I have got is probably going to blow her little mind 😉 I know some people think it’s a bit over the top, but I really enjoy collecting all the little bits and bobs for it, it doesn’t have to be overly expensive and it’s become a bit of a tradition now which I love, I hope it’s something she remembers fondly when she’s older and something she may even go on to re create for her children one day.

    Bella was only around 6 months old for her first Easter so her basket included a soft toy, some Easter books, the cutest little romper and bunny ears of course!



    Her second one included more books, bubbles, stickers, a beaker, some marshmallows, a couple of mini chocolate treats and some bunny head boppers because naturally I lost the ears from the year before 😉


    Finally here’s a look at what goodies are in Bella’s Easter basket this year. I bought most of the bits from my local Sainsburys this time apart from the bunny ears which were from pound land last year.

     Daisy Headband (How friggin’ cute?!)

    Pastel Hairbands & Hair Clips

    Two Tubs Of Play Doh

    Kinder Egg Surprise Bunny

    Smarties Filled Mini Chocolate Chick

    Bunny Ears (Re used from last year)

      

    Are you making an Easter Basket for your little one this year?
