So I purchased a bunch of these wooden pieces about a year ago. I also purchased this canvas. I didn’t have an ideas at the time, I just picked them up because they were super cheap. Like, $0.10 a piece for the wood pieces and $3.00 for the canvas…I knew that I could come up with something cute. Continue reading
I have been on the hunt for the last two months picking up little things here and there for my daughter’s Easter basket. I use to look forward to the candy in my basket when I was growing up. However, what happens when you have a toddler? Candy is not really the best option. So I have complied a list of ideas that hopefully can help you fill your little one’s Easter baskets!
- Easter Coloring Book with crayons
- Play-Doh Spring Easter Eggs
- Easter Books (Infant board books)
- Beach Toys
- Easter Rubber Ducks (I found some in the dollar section of my local Target)
- Easter Plush
- Easter Egg Sidewalk Chalk
- Bubbles (Found in Target’s Easter section for under $2.00)
- Annie’s Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks
- Annie’s Organic Cheddar Bunnies
- Plush Bunny Ears Headband
- Easter Plate, Fork and Spoon
Here is a selection of Easter books in our household. Yes, my daughter has quite the collection in 2 years.
- Little Golden Books “The Fuzzy Duckling”
- Little Golden Books “Animal Friends”
- Little Golden Books “Home for a Bunny”
- “Hey Duck”
- Blue’s Clues “Happy Easter, Sprinkles”
- “Duck and Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny”
- “All Ears”
- “My Easter Bible Storybook”
- “Five Little Ducks” (My daughter is going to be super excited about this one, this is currently one of her favorite songs. We sing it to her at least 1-3 times a day) I know she will just love this book!
Easter Activities for Children:
- Don’t forget to take your little ones to see the Easter Bunny
- Easter Egg Coloring
- Easter Photo shoots in your own backyard. Dress up your little one, throw some plastic eggs in the yard and have fun with it!
- Egg Hunts are always fun! We decided to do a little egg hunt in our backyard. We were actually practicing for the neighborhood egg hunt with the bigger kids. Inside the eggs I filled them with “Annie’s Organic Fruit snacks,” and “Annie’s Organic cheddar bunnies.”
- Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt (my little one is a wee too young for this one, but that will not stop me for starting to plan a scavenger hunt for the future!)
The other item in the basket is a Vtech Smart Person “Stella and her Bunny.” Since my daughter loves her Vtech Smart People, I thought this toy would fit perfectly into the mix!
I hope my post helps give you all ideas for your toddler’s Easter baskets! Thank you for reading and Happy Easter!
Today I am sharing my “toddler friendly valentine” craft project. It was a toss up to figure out what to create for my child’s upcoming Valentine’s Day party. I went back in forth between food or stickers, I settled on the idea of food. Then I had to narrow it down to small group of “healthy-like” foods for toddlers. I figured parents would not appreciate the candy, or yet, maybe they would for themselves. Anyways, it was a toss up between “Sprout” baby puree, goldfish and puffs. I thought the puffs would be the better way to go. Then I asked her teachers and they agreed. So puffs it is!
Our child has a lot of toys, watching her play and grow over the first year we noticed she became attached to a few of these toys. The toys we chose are good for the first year and probably a bit over. They have brought entertainment to our little girl as well as us. They teach her about colors, numbers, animals and so forth. She is not only learning what color the circle is, but she is learning how to push buttons and start to understand how things work…”Cause and Effect.”
