I had lots of fun last year preparing for Easter and I can’t believe it’s now time to get ready for Easter again. I’m excited because my daughter is now 2 and understands what’s going on plus she loves getting gifts so I’m sure we will have a really fun time.
This Easter we plan to have a basket with gifts from the Easter bunny. She will be getting Melissa & Doug 20 Animal Magnets in a Box, Melissa & Doug Pizza Party, a pair of Babiators Sunglasses and a Melissa & Doug Deluxe Zoo Jigsaw Puzzle. I’m planning to go to our local co-op to buy some organic bunny shaped chocolates for my daughter and I will also add a few Lindt milk chocolate eggs because they look pretty but mostly because I plan to eat them. Haha! Who said Easter was only for kids? 🙂
We are planning to have 2 Easter egg hunts: one at my mother’s in law house and another one at a friends house. I have to prepare eggs for both Easter egg hunts and for the last one we can’t use candy so I had to get creative.
Today I’m hoping to inspire you to do some of my favorite Easter DIY crafts. They’re all easy to make since I’m not the craftiest mom and if your kids are old enough they can join you for some fun.
I made a huge one last year and I loved it so much I kept it so we could use it again this year. This is the basket that the Easter Bunny leaves in our home filled with gifts and Easter treats. I haven’t gotten mine ready yet but you can see what it looked like last year. I’m really excited because this year I will leave Easter Bunny Paper Tracks from my daughter’s bed to the basket so that when she wakes up she can follow the tracks and find what the Easter bunny left for her.
Last year after I made this basket I realized it was way too big to carry on Easter egg hunts so
I will also be making a smaller version for the hunts. Looks like I won’t be making a smaller basket, we went to Target and my daughter grabbed a basket and claimed it a hers so we will be using that one instead.
I promise I will update this post with our Easter basket once I’m done preparing it.
This was really easy to make and an original way to leave gifts from the Easter bunny. I won’t be making it this year because I’m still on modified bed rest due to my pregnancy but my daughter loved it last year and I’m sure she would love it this year too.
These are so easy to make and a great toy. I used them to decorate my Easter basket and the Easter egg. They also look great around the house and give it an Easter “vibe”.
What are your favorite Easter crafts and which will you be making this year?
