An Easter Basket...



Truth be told, I didn't think Maddie needed an Easter basket...she's a one year old!

I'm the type of parent that feels like children don't really need things such as this introduced to them until they are:

-Aware of what it is
-Actually care about and is excited about it and...
-Start requesting it!

With that said, I haven't pierced her ears and I don't plan to get a pet any time soon and I didn't think an Easter basket was necessary either!

But, Mario insisted that we get one for whatever reason....so I gave in with the exception that I make it!  Why?!?  Because I thought it would be a waste to buy a pre-made basket full of stuff I wasn't going to let her eat or stuff that she wasn't going to need or be interested in!

The basket I made for her consisted of...

-Colorful Clay
-Bubbles
-Plum Organics breakfast pouches
-Colorful Onesies
-CD of nursery rhymes, including her favorite song, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
-One Chocolate Bunny w/ a Tinker Bell DVD (from her godfather, thanks Chaz)!!!

...and I threw a few eggs in there and a bow to make it all Easter-esque!


Simple enough right! Well, sort of, since I probably would have come out a lot cheaper with a pre-made basket but, hey, she's going to use every bit of this stuff (except maybe the bunny...no worries, it won't go to waste ;))!

What do you think about Easter baskets? Did you buy or make your(s)?!?

  1. Awww. Maybe kids need to know about the ritual from their early age :)

    1. I suppose, Areeba! But I do believe that she would have an understanding of it more by the time she is three of four, which is still considered early age, in my opinion!

    1. Thanks so much, Mionna! When I sat her down and she smiled like such it just warmed my heart and made for the perfect Easter picture!!! I so love it too and I'm so glad you agree! It just makes so much sense, in my opinion!!!

  3. Look at the little beauty. I agree with you. No need to buy things that she won't use or need. Since I was still quite young when I had my babies, much of what I did was based on what my mom did. I'm blessed she was there, but I wish I had done things a little bit differently.

    1. Thanks, Sophia, and exactly! I'm just doing my best to be mindful of the things we introduce and when we introduce it so that it's not a waste. I do wish my mother was here to give me her input though, but I'm certain I'd still do things my way (as I've always been a bit different and independent in that way)!!!

  5. I always make my kids Easter Baskets. I figure if I'm going to spend money it should be on things they are going to use and like! It is a bit more expensive but at least it isn't wasted!

    1. Exactly, Angie!!! It does cost more but it's definitely worth more since I know they'll like / use EVERYTHING included!!!
