Easter is this weekend! I love blogging because can see what we were up to on past Easters.
Like two years ago when I was pregnant and made a delicious roasted chicken. Thinking of making it again this year.
Or last year when I prepared for Easter by making cute cupcakes! I didn’t quite get around to that this year.
However, I am looking forward to this year’s egg hunt because I think Hailey will really be into it. I just hope the creepy Easter bunny appears friendlier at this year’s event.
Though Hailey may really enjoy hunting eggs this year, I wasn’t sure whether or not to make her an Easter basket. I have fond memories of egg hunts growing up (and finding wayyyy more Cadbury eggs than my brother!), so I decided I was ready to get in on the fun.
I’m not against a Cadbury egg here and there, but at 18 months I don’t think Hailey needs a basket full of candy so instead I put together a healthier Easter basket.
Similar to stockings at Christmas, Easter Basket are notorious with being filled with junk food. Maybe it’s because we aren’t big candy people around here, but so much of it gets thrown away. Instead I decided to fill it up with fun and useful items that will make Hailey smile.
First, a new book! Hailey is really into books with simple pictures she can identify. I know she’ll love going through this one and pointing out dog (dah!), banana (nah-nah-nah), ducks (qua-qua) and on and on and on. I better prepare myself for a lot of ‘reading.’
Sidewalk chalk will be a lot of fun now that the weather is warming back up and I couldn’t resist this little duck since Hailey has been so into giving hugs lately… especially to Koda.
Springy pajamas? Yes, please! Somehow we keep running out of pajamas around here.
And for her sweet treat, dried fruit! I stocked up on dried mango, dried kiwi and dried pineapple at Healthy Home Market’s bulk bins. Hailey LOVES these.
So there it is, our healthier Easter basket! The best news of all is I got everything at Kohl’s and the total cost was $20. Now that’s SWEET.
What goes in your Easter baskets?
