Easter Baskets

Today, I wanted to share me and Lisa’s Easter Baskets with you guys!  Lisa put hers together a couple years ago!  She found her adorable baskets and then ordered a custom vinyl from Janey Mac to put on the front of each vinyl!  Look how adorable they are!

I loved them so much, that last year I decided to make some similar for my boys!  I found my boys pails at our local TJ Maxx, but they have several options online too – here, here and here! I wanted it very simple – so I just did the first letter of their first name.

 

 

I have decided to share the Vector file for the Vinyl Design that I added to my baskets!  It would be easy enough to re-create too, but I might as well share it to make it easy for you!

I love the tradition of Easter baskets, but honestly, I always feel like Christmas is still so fresh and my boys really don’t need any new toys and I’m not one to fill their basket full of candy.  So, I began keeping a list the weeks leading up to Easter of things that I know they are going to need soon and then that is what I compile their baskets of.  I also top it off with a few candies and some peeps!  Here are some ideas of a few things that I generally put in my boys baskets:

I also will purchase a new book or a new smaller toy as a little extra bonus.  Something super small and simple though.  For Nathan’s “extra” this year he is getting this new Bike Helmet!  I’m not sure what (if) Jeffrey will get.  He is still young enough, that I can get away without him getting anything extra!

Also, if you have more then one kid, you can divide up some of the stuff that will be used by everyone! If you get a bigger Sandbox set and a bigger Bug Catching Kit, have the Easter Bunny leave a note on it, saying that it is for the family!

If you have any other great ideas, feel free to leave them as a comment and I can add to the list!  Have a great week everybody!  Tomorrow we’ll release the Easter Pre-K Pack, so watch for that!

    LOVE those tall, pail style buckets! Both of them are so adorable! I agree- our Easter baskets are filled with needful type things too, new swimsuit or sandals or Church wear 🙂 Filling my boys’ baskets is one of FAV things of the whole year! 🙂 Thank you for sharing!!

    Love your baskets/buckets :)!! One year my girls were really into Build-a-Bear Workshop so I went and got an outfit for an animal they had already made at Build-a-Bear. I added Easter bunny ears headband, shoes, and a fun accesory that i don’t normally buy. My son got a buzz lightyear costume for his build-a-bear. The Easter bunny dressed their animals with all the new goodies, including the bunny ear headbands and they were sitting in the easter baskets with a few other treat. This was a favortie easter for my kids 🙂
