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)?!?
