The looks on their faces is priceless when they see that goldmine of treats! Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of the traditional Easter basket filled with peeps, chocolate bunnies and, of course, a fluffy plush critter. But, it’s also fun to get creative and add your own personal touch to your little chickadee’s basket. Here are just a few of my top obsessions for making this Easter’s basket stand out from the rest.


1. Fun Easter Games

Liven up your Easter hunt this year with Dozen Dancing Eggs Game. Object of the game is to collect as many eggs as you can to win the game, but beware the roll of the dice determine how to store your eggs. This game will have everyone in the family giggling as they try to keep their eggs in their neck, arms or wherever the dice tells you.

2. Stuffed Toys

Blabla Knit Dolls: Completely obsessed with this line of knit dolls, not only are they beautifully made but they are the perfect replacement to the traditional plush doll.

I highly recommended Seedling kits your little one can use to dress up or play with after they are finished.
