As you all know by now, I love doing special things to celebrate seasonal changes and holidays. When it’s time to start preparing for the next holiday, I always have big dreams of doing something super creative and crunchy. Time always seems to get ahead of me and I end up taking the quick route. Such is life. Ah, I’ll make up for it in the upcoming months. I wanted Jayden to have an Easter basket this year. Nothing fancy, but something filled with a few goodies that he’d appreciate.
During a recent grocery trip at Walmart, I bypassed the Easter candy aisle and headed straight to the main Easter aisle with the baskets, decor and trinkets. Instead of an ordinary basket, I opted for a super cute plush bunny bucket. It kind of resembles a fox. As you can see, I have a thing for plush buckets. I grabbed some green grass made of recycled paper (new in Walmart stores), a small story book, sticker pad, crayons, a mini set of bubbles, and Annie’s Homegrown Graham Bunnies and Fruit Snacks (found in the snack aisle); all of which my boy loves.
Here’s the final product.
It may not be handcrafted to perfection, but it beats any premade basket filled to the brim with sweets and breakable toys. The plush basket will be reused (or passed down) as well as the crayons, grass, stickers, and bubble tubes which will be recycled once we run out of uses for them.
I did get creative.
