Last year, as my nephews were a bit older, I decided to make them Easter baskets as a little treat, for Easter Sunday.
This year my niece is a bit older too and will be able to appreciate one as well as the boys, so I have decided to do them again.
I’ve been to a few different shops in order to get the little bits and bob’s for the baskets. I’ll list everything that I bought & the prices (if I can remember haha)
I like to make them personal to each child and get a mixture of chocolate and crafty/fun bits to make them more exciting and fun!
You will see from the pictures that I have popped some ‘non Easter’ food items into my nieces basket. She isn’t a massive chocolate fan (I don’t get it either!!) So I have got her a selection pack of some of her favourite oaty Goodies Bars.
This is a great way to make a basket for a much younger child, especially under 2’s who probably won’t have/need loads of chocolate.
Buckets, Asda £1.50
Luckily for me there were three different colours!
The top two baskets are for my nephews who are aged (almost) 3 & 4.
The bottom basket is for my niece who is (almost) 2.
Cadbury Boxless eggs (with buttons inside)
Plain Cadbury boxless egg, Tesco £1
Cadbury Disney egg heads, Tesco £1
Chick marshmallows, Asda large pack £3
They also did white bunny marshmallows too, for the same price.
Milk chocolate bunnies, Tesco 2 for £1.50
Milk chocolate lollies, Tesco 2 for £1.50
Chick gingerbread kits, Tesco from £1
I also picked up these little gingerbread chick kits.
If you had a bigger basket, hamper or if you just want another little activity to do with the kids then these are really fun and super easy to do. You get some tubes of icing and little packs of hundreds and thousands to decorate your chicks, in the pack and I can guarantee the kids will love them.
The non chocolate/edible items.
Easter activity books, Tesco £1
These have got stickers, colouring & arts and crafts activities inside them so they are great for adding a bit of Easter craft fun to the weekend and will certainly keep them occupied.
Large Easter bubble wands, Tesco £1 (or £1.50, I cant quite remember!)
Easter T-Shirt, Tesco F&F £6
They had a great selection of Easter themed clothing bits in Tesco, for both boys & girls and they were very cute!
Again, this is a great option for a younger child who may not be able to enjoy the arts & craft bits of the other baskets.
