Easter baskets : for baby and big kids!

Easter is just a couple weeks away! Gifts are definitely a love language of mine and while I try to be more minimalist I still love to do a little something each Easter. First, I do not buy cheap things that won’t last and second I like to find things they might need.

Here are my kid’s baskets and a few other ideas for both babies and older kids.

Remington’s Easter basket:

1. A book, “You Belong Here”

2. Bonnet

3. Sippy cup lid for mason jars, or a bottle top, also the jar cover.

4. Wooden animals.

5. Soft rattle, or this one.

6. Pacifier

7. Wooden toy, or this one.

Nellie’s Easter basket:

1. Nature journal. Adding a pack of colored pencils too.

2. Nail polish. Kid friendly!

3. Animal.

4. Swim suit. Also love this one.

5. Jelly shoes.

Jaxon’s Easter basket:

1. Night light.

2. Animal.

3. Nature journal.

4. Whale print.

5. Nature tee. Also this one.

Flower Press

Easter is tomorrow and this year I was careful about not getting carried away with adding cheap basket fillers of things we don’t really need or even want!

I think my favorite part is the flower press Anthony made for them. This project only took 20 minutes and just some scrap wood. And is perfect for spring!

You can use nicer wood, this wood is a bit splintery, but it’ll work!

We made two presses, one for each of the kids, so that’s why we have 8 bolts and wing nuts.

I need to add a couple of layers of cardboard but I just took out our recycling so I guess the kids might have to wait a couple of days to press everything they find.
