How to make Easter morning fun for little kids!







It is more fun for me to put together Crew's Easter basket than it is for him to get it I think haha. I never spend too much. We don't do anything expensive, just little things to make the day fun and exciting. I have been teaching him about the Easter bunny and reading Easter books recently and it is so cute to hear him talk about Peter Cotton tail coming to visit his house and bring toys and treats.

This year I plan to print off some bunny foot prints and tape them randomly from the front door to the fire place where the baskets will be. I am going to hide his Easter eggs around the house instead of putting them in his basket so that he can go around and hunt for them. Im trying to avoid candy so I will just put gold fish, fruit snacks and little toys in the eggs.

I like to try and get practical things that he needs for his basket. He is obsessed with my electric toothbrush so we got him his own to make brushing his teeth more fun! This one is from Target and was only $3.99. I found the cute egg shaped chalk in the Target dollar spot along with the cars and light up wand. He will be getting summer jammies, those are to the left of the baskets and I purchased the bunny ear headband from he dollar store to put on both boys for pictures that morning. Crew will also be getting a coloring book with some new crayons. Cole is only 5 months old so I didn't do much for his basket this year just some jammies and a little toy.

The cute bunny baskets are from Pottery Barn. They are on sale right now for $13! I wanted to find baskets that my kids could use over and over and these are such great quality.

We are Christian so Easter is a sacred holiday for us as well so I will be trying to implement some spiritual elements like playing church music throughout the day. I also found a cute kids book explaining the meaning behind the day. Our General Conference happens to land on Easter this year. I am really looking forward to the uplifting talks that will be given by our church leaders. What a better day for it than the day our thoughts are on the resurrection of our Savior.

I hope that this gave you some cute ideas for your Easter baskets this year!
