I cannot believe that tomorrow is Easter Sunday. It feels like only yesterday I was putting the boys’ Christmas Eve Basket together and now here we are, in April already, and I am sharing the contents of their Easter Basket.
Easter baskets are a great way to treat little ones with something special as part of an annual family tradition. It also makes the perfect alternative to chocolate, and as the boys get thoroughly spoilt with chocolate eggs by family, I quite enjoy sourcing Easter items and putting together a little Easter basket for them instead.
You don’t have to spend a fortune either. If an Easter basket is something you do every year, then you can reuse items from previous years or shop the sales to keep costs down.
I’ve tried to go for a good mix of things this year, so they’ve got a couple of Easter themed reading books, some Easter sticker activity books, bunny ears and novelty bunny sunglasses, Easter bubble wands, Easter stickers, treat bags with some mini chocolate eggs and a couple of games. Also how cute are the Nesting Easter Egg Fairy Lights? They’re hand-detailed with rustic speckles and each straw nest is finished with a fluffy white feather. I think they’re a really nice finishing touch to the Easter Basket.
Here’s a closer look at the contents of Riley and Harry’s Easter Basket:
The Hape Eggspressions consists of six wooden eggs – each with their own pedestal – that help young children learn about emotions seen through facial expressions. The eggs display a wide range of emotions that include happiness, sadness, anger, shyness and fear. The set also includes a read-a-long storybook entitled “Scrambled Feelings” and it’s a great way to help children better explain how they feel at various times throughout the day.

I’m pretty late in sharing the boys’ Easter Basket given that it’s Easter Sunday tomorrow, but i hope you still enjoyed the post anyway.
Wishing you all a very Hoppy Easter!!!
