Easter Basket Creation Tips

It’s been many years since we have given the kiddos an Easter basket from us. When they were younger, I would buy them each one, hide it and then absolutely forget to give it to them. We typically host an Easter egg hunt at our house, so with all that we had going on and the fact that every one would bring them a basket, I would forget to give it to them. Actually, I would find the baskets days later, so I just stopped doing them. As they have gotten older and they have gotten less Easter baskets, I figured it would be fun for me to make them each one this year. After all, they are growing up so quickly and I won’t be able to enjoy that with them much longer.

With that goal in mind, I set off to Walmart to get everything I need to make it happen. 2 hours later (because there were so many other items I shopped for while I was there), I headed home with their favorite colored Easter baskets (blue for him and purple for her) and all the goodies.

If you are planning on making your kiddos their own Easter Baskets, here’s what you will need along with some Easter Basket Creation Tips:

  • Easter Baskets

Tip: The size of the Easter basket you choose depends on how much you want to fill it with (the bigger it is, the more you will have to buy in order to make it look full). I also look at its practicality for use in Easter Egg hunts I know they will be participating in (which is where a big Easter basket comes in handy).

  • Easter Basket Grass

Tip: I actually ended up using Walmart bags to fill in the bottom of the basket before putting the grass to make it look fuller.

  • Food

Tip: Instead of opting for candy, put snacks they will enjoy instead. That is why, I got the kiddos Slim Jim’s. Not only will they get to enjoy them that day, they can also eat them as snacks or put the in their lunch boxes.

  • Goodies

Tip: One of the reasons I like creating their baskets is because you can actually get them goodies you know they will enjoy BUT combine fun items with practical items.
