If you haven’t noticed, Easter is super early this year and just around the corner. We will be going on a family vacation to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee so I wanted to get a jumpstart on completing the kids’ Easter baskets to take along with us. While Charlee was at preschool one morning, I went over to my parents house to fill ’em up! My parents will be going on vacation with us and bringing the baskets, that way there’s no chance of Charlee accidentally seeing them!
Since William will only be a little over a month old, he couldn’t care less about the Easter bunny this year! I wanted to make sure that he had one though, to keep Charlee from asking questions as to why the Easter bunny didn’t bring a basket for her little brother. I ordered matching personalized Easter baskets from Walmart.com and they are the perfect size to hold all the goodies.
In William’s I added:
- Board books
- A stuffed bunny toy
- A frog bath loofah
I went a bit overboard with Charlee’s (it’s so hard not to!) and had quite a time trying to make it all fit, haha! It took some adjusting, reorganizing and starting over a few times but somehow I made it work. I didn’t want to just fill hers with a ton of candy because A. She doesn’t need the junk B. She isn’t the biggest candy eater C. She would much rather haves games, crafts, toys, etc.
In Charlee’s I added:
- A chocolate peanut butter bunny, Easter gummies and some purple peeps (MORE than enough candy)
- A piggy bath loofah
- 2 pairs of clip-on earrings (found here)
- A felt tic-tac-toe game (found here)
- A flower press kit (Target )
- A mermaid excavation kit (Target)
- Easter craft kits (Dollar Tree)
We will be arriving in TN the day before Easter and staying the following week. I tried to incorporate activities and crafts that Charlee can do while we have any downtime at the cabin.
What is the Easter Bunny bringing your kiddos this year?
