A tisket, a tasket, I found the cutest baskets! 🙂 I really have no idea how the tradition of an Easter egg hunt got started but it is adorable to see kiddos running around with baskets scooping up their treasures and candies. While a plastic bag will do the job, or a homemade one from a paper sack could too there are some adorable Easter baskets out there, and I did the hunting for you! (Get it?)
Pottery Barn Kids Easter Baskets
Pottery Barn Kids has some of the sweetest Easter baskets. I love that they have liners that you can swap out and customize. You buy the base basket and then pick your liner based on the style you want. They have gingham ones, rabbit ear ones and I like that you can reuse the basket for multiple kiddos since the liner is the piece that's personalized. They also have some great fuzzy bunny options! I got the felt one for Miles this year and it's a great neutral Easter basket.
Target Easter Baskets
Target also has some great options- both of the plastic and themed variety. This dinosaur easter basket is adorable, and I love the handles on the rainbow basket. They do go fast, so I'd grab yours early in the Easter shopping season.
How else to use Easter baskets
I love an adorable basket, but, sometimes they just take up room. Which is fine and it's always exciting to pull them out of the seasonal totes, but if it something seasonal can serve as decoration too I'm all about it.
- decor- before any Easter egg hunt I keep his basket on his bookshelf and i doubles as decoration
- tablescape or centerpiece using fake grass and easter eggs
Things to put in Easter baskets
- toys, treats, books, pajamas, egg dyeing kit, craft kit, puzzles
- homemade treats like sugar cookies
- We always put an Easter book in his basket, I love this tradition. It's important to us to prioritize the real reason for Easter out around all the fun activities, so we'll give him a book that's about the sacrifice and love of Christ every year.
Hop to it! 🙂
