Easter was always one of my favorite times growing up. Except my family actually never had an Easter bunny and I bet you would never believe what my family’s tradition was instead. We had a pirate come to our house. Yes, a pirate. I have three older brothers and they were less than enthusiastic for the Easter bunny to come. So, my mom changed it to a pirate and our yearly treasure hunt has been one of the best family traditions yet!
Don’t you worry, even though it’s a pirate that comes, we still do have typical Easter baskets, Easter eggs, and other delicious Easter candy! As I was preparing for our first EVER treasure hunt with our Evie girl (I’m beyond excited!) I found myself needing some advice to know what to put in a baby’s Easter basket. So, I went to the pro…my mom! We came up with some fun and useful Easter basket ideas so I wanted to share them with you! One of these tips is absolutely genius and one that I’m sure your babies will LOVE!
What I put in Evie’s basket:
1. Baby toys– I went to Walmart’s dollar section and grabbed a couple things that I think Evie will like! The key here is not to go overboard in the toy section, we all know that most babies seem to like items that aren’t toys more than the toys themselves so I really don’t like spending a lot on them! Evie was absolutely obsessed with the baby! It was so cute! She played with her for hours. I got all three of these items for under $6.
2. Books– Easter themed books would be even better here! I found an Easter themed book section (right by the dollar section) at Walmart and grabbed a couple books! Books are a great thing to add to the basket because not only is it so good to read to your babies but they can be read and enjoyed for years and years to come! I got these books for $6.99 each.
3. Easter Outfit– it’s always good to have an excuse to give your ever growing kids an outfit and Easter is the perfect time for that! You can put a cute easter dress in the basket or just an everyday Easter outfit like the one I put in Evie’s basket. I got this cute outfit from Walmart for $5.50!
4. Easter eggs– of course you have to put Easter eggs in your baby’s basket! But I know that Evie won’t be eating the candy so I chose to fill them with flavored baby puffs and yogurt drops! I let Evie play with them for a few minutes today and she had so much fun picking the treats out of the eggs and eating them!
Evie and I had took some fun Mommy and me Easter pictures and here they are! They were taken by the amazing Ashely Eliza Photography!
Have a fabulous Easter!
