Simple DIY Bunny Baskets for Easter

In DIY, Mommyhood

It’s that time of year again, Easter basket time!  For a while, to be honest, I was a little against Easter baskets.  It felt almost like Valentine’s day to me.  Easter is a time of rejoicing and celebrating our risen savior, not bunnies and baskets and eggs filled with sugar.  But, eventually, the excitement got to me and I figured it was all in fun, we definitely teach our kids about the meaning of Easter (well, right now, the 5 year old), and I decided I was being an Easter scrooge.  Today I’m getting in the spirit with some cute and easy DIY bunny baskets.

I’m not super big into going all out for Easter gift giving.  I want my boys to enjoy a special treat, yes, but I also want them to know the true meaning behind the holiday.  So I try to find as many deals as I can and here’s what I came up with this year! For Ro… Now this is the wee one’s first Easter and he’s still very young so, instead of not doing anything at all, I went super simple and cutesie. It’s a veggie and bunny basket!  Some veggie and fruit squeeze pouches and a stuffed bunny from the Dollar Tree make for an easy yet adorable presentation. 4 Veggie/Fruit pouches – $5 Mini Plush Bunny – $1 White Crate (Hobby Lobby) – $1.80 ($2.99 @ 40% off) For Gav… Big brother definitely got a little more since he’s older, of course, and he understands, to the degree that a 4 year old can, what this holiday is about.  It also helps that he goes to a Christian preschool. For his basket, I wanted something that he could use throughout the year, not just Easter.  Party City has these great little buckets and he loves putting his cars…

Easter Basket on a Budget

Easter Basket on a Budget

In Uncategorized

This will be the first year that we’re giving Mr. G an Easter basket that from us.  We haven’t in the past because he was about 3 months old for his first one and the second and third ones were given to him my grandparents.  Now, we didn’t know that they would be giving him one, but I felt that he had no real idea what Easter really was and, to me, it’s not really a gift giving holiday.  So I’m not very big on the giant gift baskets, or special toys for Easter, and don’t get me started on Easter grass.  If you are, that’s wonderful!  But for us, I like to keep the focus on the true meaning of Easter and I also like to work with a smaller budget. So today I’m sharing with you the Easter basket that I’ve put together for Mr. G that involves minimal candy, no Easter grass, and still has the message of Easter in it. Step #1 – Go to the Dollar Store! Not only can you find a great basket for next to nothing, you would not believe the great little things you can find there!  I mean at this…
