{Easter Basket Link-up}


I have been so excited for this link-up! I absolutely love Easter. While we focus mostly on Jesus and his resurrection during Easter, we do still do Easter baskets and the Easter bunny. And,  I'm going to admit...Mason's basket(s) are pretty big this year. I've been collecting things for a few weeks now and kind of forgot what all I had in my closet. I tried to get a lot of things that he could do outside since it's Spring and that's where we spend most of our time. Most of his Easter basket items are from the Target Easter section or the Target Dollar Spot.

The Mason basket has mostly candy and some books. The candy items are Pez, Egg gum, Peeps, Skittles, etc. Mason can't stand chocolate, so no chocolate bunnies in his basket. The other bucket is filled with an apron, a few garden tools, a garden tool bag, a strawberry plant, a giant blow up Ninja Turtle ball, a skipper thing, egg chalk, a bug dig kit, some socks, Jeep hot wheels and a few other things. The middle bunny box has a stuffed bunny and two golden eggs that have money inside them.

Side note...a couple of weeks ago we bought some of those little cartons of egg gum and I was telling Mason that used to be my favorite thing to get in my Easter basket. I asked him what his favorite thing to get in his Easter basket was and he said Hot Wheels. So I had to make sure I had some of those to put in there!!

What do you put in your kid(s) Easter basket? I hope you'll link up with us.

  6. What a great collection of things! My boys love Pez. It's a Sunday church tradition that there's a Pez dispenser in their church bag. So sweet that you included his favorite and yours :)

  8. It's so hard not to go overboard on gifts, isn't it? We don't go too crazy throughout the year, so on holidays and birthdays, we overdo it a bit. You got so many great goodies for Mason - love it!

  17. While you went big, I went little this year. I feel like Connor is always scoring something from someone so he truly doesn't need anything and since we are cutting back on sweets, that limited me a bit. I did get him a toddler Bible and I'm excited to give it to him because he has talked about taking it to church to earn a sticker.
