Easter Basket Ideas For Your Littles

Easter is just around the corner, I honestly cannot believe it is only two weeks away! This is the first year we will have a little who understands the 'toys' in his basket, and I cannot wait. He still really doesn't understand the concept of gifts, but sure as heck enjoys a new Hot Wheels car or something to color with. It's the simple things when you're 19 months old, and I am not complaining. Here are the items I plan to throw into Jackson's basket this year, and I know he is going to love it all!

Our little guy, for whatever reason, LOVES to throw his cups on the floor whenever he is done taking a drink. Probably one of his most frustrating habits, especially when it usually causes the straw in his cup to detatch or get messed up. Reviews have told me these cups are spill proof, and I like that they will help him learn to drink without a straw, without making a mess! 
We are planning to do swim lessons while I am on maternity leave, so of course we need a new pair of swim trunks. As always, Old Navy is where it is at and I am loving this adorable option.
For whatever reason, Jackson loves the Caroline Jayne Church books, something with the illustrations just captivates him. I know that as long as the pictures are consistent, he will love this book! And, now that the sidewalks are clear of snow and ice, investing in sidewalk chalk is a must! I cannot wait to spend long afternoons outside lounging and watching my little guy color.
Now that we have moved on from teething toys, I figured why not keep the Sophie trend alive with this color book!? I love the simplicity of it; in my opinion a lot of learning books can be information overload for littles trying to learn colors and objects for the first time. This seems like a great option to really start practicing our colors.
I have been, and still am, a baby pajama nut, and this spring is no exception. I think this little pair is absolutely adorable and perfect for the longer, sunny days ahead!
And finally, shame me if you must, but I am putting candy in Jackson's basket. And I will probably eat 98% of it. But if it is purchased for a child then it is justified and I just won't feel so bad about putting down a bag of my beloved Starburst Jellybeans ;-)

What do you all give in Easter baskets? Do you 'go big' or keep things simple?

  3. Chalk is such a good idea!!

  4. My mom always gets the grandkids swimsuits for their easter baskets and I think it's such a good idea! Also, we love the 360 cups! My only complaint is that they do splatter when dropped...but at least they won't leak in your bag or if they're left on their side. Great list!
