Hi, I’m Amy and I love going completely overboard at any given occasion. Easter is no eggception (sorry! Couldn’t help myself) This year I have decided to make Ava an Easter basket. I don’t buy Easter Eggs for my kids, I know, I know, mean mummy right? They get so many eggs from family though they really don’t need any from me. I would much rather get them a toy or something useful. Ava really enjoyed the Christmas Eve basket I made so I decided to put some bits together for her for Easter. Everything is either from Home bargains or Poundland so nothing is too expensive. If you are looking for some inspiration on what to put in your toddlers Easter basket, here’s everything I have put in ours.
What’s In My Toddlers Easter Basket
Technically I bought these for Poppy as Ava already has the same pair. I did a little Easter photo shoot with Ava when she was a baby so I really want to recreate with Pops too.
Now Ava is a bit older she has really started taking an interest in crafts or making as she calls it. I’ve managed to pick up a few Easter crafty bits which I know she will love. I got a paint your own bunny money box, stickers, make your own paper Easter Egg kit and colouring books from Home Bargains, all for less than £5. I also found some bunny shaped wax crayons in Poundland, I can’t wait to see Ava’s face when she sees them.
Ah bubbles, every child’s favourite thing and every parent of a child that can’t blow bubbles yet worsts nightmare. I couldn’t resist picking up the bunny bubble wand from Home Bargains though, hopefully the weather is nice enough to use it outside eh? One can only hope!
Bunny hairclips and bobbles
I picked Ava up some cute bunny hairclips and bobbles from Primark to wear over Easter, god I love a theme. Both girls have outfits I have bought for them to wear on Easter sunday.
Bunny colour changing light
Poundland always have amazing seasonal bits in. I have bought Ava the Halloween and Christmas lights they do and she loved them. I was so happy to find out they had a cute bunny version for Ava’s Easter basket.
Beatrix Potter Book
Home Bargains have a collection of hardback Beatrix Potter books for 99p each, how good is that? I couldn’t help myself and picked up Peter Rabbit for Ava’s basket plus Jemima Puddleduck and Mrs TiggyWinkle for her book shelf.
And finally, the all important chocolate
I know I said I wasn’t buying Ava an Easter egg but I’m not a complete scrooge. I picked up some little bunny chocolate lollies from Aldi to add into her basket.
Do you make up a Easter basket or do you stick to the traditional Easter egg?
