Is it just me or has every holiday turned into a candy eating, gift giving fest?
Listen to my recent podcast, watch the video here or read below:
The Gardening Basket
First, we have a Gardening Basket….I filled a large pot with a water can, some kid sized gardening tools, gloves and kneeling pad along with some plants for our garden. My little guy loved helping me plant them outside and water with his own, personalized watering can.
The Bike Helmet Basket
Next, we have a Bike Helmet Basket…Turned upside down, a bike helmet makes a great “basket” if you did want throw in some treats. And since kids’ heads aren’t that big, you don’t have to worry about there being too much room for treats. Ha!
The Umbrella Basket
Finally, last year we did the Umbrella Basket….I get compliments all the time on these super cute umbrellas AND they are super useful in our terrible Ohio spring weather. I just flipped the umbrellas upside down and put a little Easter grass, a couple a treats and even (gasp!) a book and a toy. Below is a link to those super cute umbrellas I picture (Full Disclosure: it is an Amazon affiliate link):
