We're officially in April, which means Easter is going to be here before we know it. This will be my third year making D an Easter Basket. This year however I am toning it down a little. I'm getting bits which she actually needs and will use post the Easter Holiday. I'm also not getting her an Easter egg this year, as last year she got loads!!
I also came across this book whilst browsing on Amazon. D has a similar Christmas theme one and it will make a brill addition to her ever-growing book collection.
I've decided to get her a lip balm as she insists on borrowing mine all the time! You can't really go wrong with a birthday cake flavour one can you?
We've got to prepare for those pesky April Showers, her beloved Minnie Mouse umbrella recently broke. This will make a fab replacement.
Although I said I wasn't going to get her an Easter Egg. It doesn't mean she can't have a few sweets. I'm planning on filling these empty plastic eggs with sweets, and some cheap and cheerful bits and bobs from the Pound shop.
As it's now getting a little warmer, we will be spending more time in the garden. These egg shape chalks will keep her entertained for a few hours at least.
The older she becomes, the more excited I get looking for fun things to put in her basket. I know she will be more excited for the edible things, but I am sure she will appreciate the other bits and bobs.
I'm really looking forward to spending some quality time with D over the Easter holiday. We go on our annual Easter egg hunt and than sit down to a scrumpious Sunday Lunch with her great grandparents.
Have you got any fun Easter basket ideas? I would love to see them
