Do you do Easter baskets for your children? Have you ever done a Disney Princess Easter Basket before? I’ve got all of our Easter details and how I put together just the perfect Easter Basket for our toddler.
Is it weird to say we are non-traditional traditionalists? If we need to place a label, I mean? Because I think that’s what we are.
We have our kids take pictures with the Easter bunny (if they want to) at our church. Right. Church. Where we celebrate the Resurrection and Jesus and the bunny! But we do because it’s sort of become our tradition. And, the girls “hunt” for eggs, because oh.my.gosh.the.candy!
By the time the day of Easter rolls around, they have had two or three egg hunts between church, school and our neighborhood, so the bunny doesn’t hide eggs at our house. In fact, since the bunny hasn’t done any handy work at our house, I’m not even sure what the girls think or believe about him/her? But just in case, I won’t ask.
So, we attend Church and celebrate with family and sometimes friends. And at some point during the day, there are Easter goodies. Sometimes we do water colors and paper, other times books and stickers. I don’t think I’ve ever done a traditional Easter basket, either.
This year, I had purchased some inexpensive plastic buckets to customize with the girls’ names. They love all containers to put their “stuff” in, so I know this will be a hit. And, a little treat is the egg with their initial on it! I think I’m going to become addicted to this vinyl and my Silhouette.
Then it was time to fill it. I headed to Walmart and hit the Easter aisles. With my intent to fill it with all things Disney Princesses, I didn’t find much there. So, I wondered around some more and found a ton in the toy aisles, the book aisles and the coloring section.
It’s hard to guess what will be the favorites. E would be happy with the 208 Princess stickers and will likely put them all over us within one day! We have had wooden lacing cards before but the laces and the cards went through a separation so these will make a nice addition. I also picked up the Princess Little People a Palace Pet (who knew Sleeping Beauty had a cat?), some Princess tattoos (I’d call that pretty non-traditional Easter) and bubbles.
So for my first traditional non-traditional Easter basket, I think I did pretty well and the girls are going to love theirs!
Does the Easter bunny visit your house? How do you do Easter?
