I’m ready for Sunday! I finished the very simple Easter baskets I put together for Diego and Santi…from the Easter Bunny of course! This year I decided to spend a little more on the actual baskets. Every year I end up buying new ones because they don’t end up lasting very long. These baskets are from Target and they were $15 each (I picked up a third for baby #3 and already stored it away for next year)! I didn’t spend much on the actual contents of the basket though. I had to put a lot of thought into what to add to the baskets because let’s face it…we just had two birthday parties and Christmas in the last four months!
So please don’t laugh as you look closely and find that I included toothpaste and toothbrushes in both baskets. My boys love their toothbrushes and Diego goes through them like crazy! I decided to pick out something fun so it wouldn’t be too weird to have them included with all the other goodies. I found Cars toothpaste and a toothbrush for Diego! Hey, they’ll need them after they get through those chocolate bunnies and eggs filled with Hershey Kisses!! And to tell you the truth, while shopping for the Easter baskets, Santi was distracted by the toothbrushes the whole time! I decided they were going in!
Both Diego and Santi also get a book and a pack of Hot Wheels. I included egg-shaped sidewalk chalk for Diego that I’m sure he’ll share with his little brother and dinosaur eggs that hatch after being submerged in water (a little science experiment). The difference in Santi’s basket? A ball!
I love doing stuff like this for the boys. Diego is already looking forward to the Easter bunny making a stop and I can’t wait to see Santi’s face when we present the basket to him. We will be dying Easter eggs this Friday and I still have not come up with a menu for our little family’s Easter Sunday meal.
Are you ready for Easter? What are some other good ideas for Easter baskets without spending a fortune? My baskets will remain open just in case something else catches my eye before Sunday Please share!
