And the countdown to the Easter Bunny’s arrival is on! In the whee hours of March 31, a large gigantic bunny will be hopping around your neighborhood. He will breaki into your house and leave your child a basket full of goodies. Creepy yes? Tradition, I guess!
While we have shied away from actually telling our kids about the Easter Bunny (we try to keep the holiday more holy the Easter bunny), we still give them a basket full of goodies. For years we stuffed our older kid’s Easter baskets with endless amounts of candy and plastic eggs full of MORE candy. The candy is overpriced and never fully gets eaten.
A few year’s ago, we threw out the whole load. Sure, they get a chocolate Easter bunny and Lord knows Nana and Papa has tons of candy for them (which we love them for), but the basket from us is filled with typically useful items (or something that we wouldn’t buy everyday at the store – and that will last longer than a chocolate egg!).
Skip the chocolate (or don’t overload the basket with it) and try out a few of these useful options for stuffing your toddler’s Easter basket!
