Here comes Peter Cotton Tail, hopping down the bunny trail! Easter is on its way but this year Peter is loading up the Easter baskets with toys, crafts, and creative gifts that will keep your kids entertained well into warmer weather. It’s time to hop to it and make one of these themed baskets your kids will love.
Say goodbye to pastels and hello to green! Skip the basket and fill up flower pots with plants and seeds. Add in cool tools made for little hands and gloves to keep the dirt at bay. Finally, throw in a few Giant Strawberry Gummies and you’ve got a gift that will grow a love of gardening.
Cooking Up a Storm
If you have a budding cook in your household give them the basics to get started in the kitchen. The Everything Kids Cookbook is filled with easy recipes to encourage finger-licking fun, and these perfectly sized kitchen tools will make mixing and rolling easy. Add in an apron and your chef-in-the-making is ready to stir up food magic.
Spring Has Sprung
After being in hibernation mode all winter, it’s time to get outside and get active! Washable Sidewalk Chalk or Neon Sidewalk Paint encourages creativity, while a Light Up Jump Rope, Hula Hoops, and a micro kite will have your kids running, jumping and twirling off the Easter sugar rush.
Rainy Day Fun
Don’t let a little rain dampen your spirits. Kick the basket to the curb and fill a pair of cute rubber boots with things that will make the most of rainy days like these bathtub toys that are perfect for floating fun. This frog umbrella will encourage puddle jumping and if things get too wet, a hooded bunny towel will have your wee one hopping over to dry off.
Beach Days Ahead!
Beach days are just around the corner (we promise!). Be proactive and pick up dollar store pails, a sand castle set, beach balls and pool noodles so you’re prepared for the sun and surf the moment the weather turns warm.
Favourite Colour Basket
Red, yellow, pink, blue, green, purple…. all you need to do is fill the basket with items in your child’s favourite colour. Not sure what to get? Bath bombs, nail polish, candy, notepads, bouncy balls, small stuffed animals or even a special mug will help you create this easy basket that has a big impact.
Your pint-sized Picasso will be ready and set to Van Gogh thanks to an Easter basket filled with everything he needs to make art. Keep it simple with a Playdoh starter set along with a washable paint kit (because cleanup should be easy), and the ultimate crayon collection.
