Any holiday in our house is kind of big deal. We celebrate almost all of them including May 4th (if you don’t know what I’m talking about you clearly aren’t a nerd). So it’s no surprise that we do Easter baskets in a big way. Every year the Easter Bunny comes and fills the kids baskets full of candy and small toys and then hides them in the house for the kids to find. This year will be no different. Here’s a peek at what is in my 7-year-old, 4-year-old and 2-month-old’s Easter baskets.
Obviously Dessa won’t be getting candy this year. So everything here is for the boys. Chocolate bunnies are a must and this year the boys are spoiled. I bought all kids Easter stuff early this year and I picked up some. Then the other day we received a package from my in-laws with more chocolate bunnies for them. They also got Reese’s Pieces carrots, chocolate carrots, Starburst jellybean eggs and giant character eggs filled with jellybeans, candy pieces and stickers.
Every Easter I try to get the kids 1 Easter themed book for their basket. This year Odin is getting Pete the Cat Big Easter Adventure by Kimberly and James Dean. Gray is getting There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Chick by Lucille Colandro since There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Shoe is one of Gray’s favorites. Dessa got 2 books by accident this year but that’s okay since her basket was lacking in candy. She is getting Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and Easter, A Touch and Feel Book by Priddy Books.
To me, Easter isn’t for toy giving. That is what Christmas and Birthday’s are for. So the boys will not being receiving many in their basket this year. They are getting Egg Splat! Wall Splatters courtesy of their loving Grandmother and each one of the kids will get 1 Animal Planet Hatch ‘Ems dinosaur eggs. Dessa will be getting a few other extras because she isn’t able to get candy. We got her the Hide ‘N Squeak Eggs by Tomy, a Infantino Spiral Car Seat Activity Toy and the Fisher-Price Tambourine & Maracas Gift Set.
Dessa is also getting a back a set of her favorite pacifiers, the Avent Soothie and a set of 3 Silicone Pacifier Clips by Hunny Tots.
