Easter is quickly approaching and I’m trying to finalize preparations. Easter baskets are a big part of our Easter day traditions. I like to buy the kids Easter baskets that are usable beyond Easter. It saves me from donating or storing them until the next year.
In past years, I have bought plastic buckets for Easter baskets, so that they can use them in the sandbox after Easter.
This year, I had the youngest two with me, when I purchased the baskets, which meant my plans which a little awry. They picked out fluffy bunny baskets. Paw Patrols Doc Mustuffins, and My Little Pony couldn’t even win them over. They were determined to get the fluffy bunny Easter baskets and be twins.
I tried to stand firm, but with the oldest already passed that stage and the middle child’s years of wanting a fluffy bunny basket dwindling, I caved. We are now the proud owners of two fluffy bunny baskets.
I knew the oldest would not appreciate a fluffy bunny basket or one of the many character baskets for sale.
I started thinking about what my tween son and teens would like. Going with my make the basket usable theme, I decided on a baseball cap.
This post is inspired by a Easter basket made from a hat that I found on Pinterest. Unfortunately, after a lot of searching, I was unable to locate a source and origin of the pin.
