This Easter, create a one of a kind basket for your Frozen princess!
When I think of Easter there are a few things that come to mind: baskets stuffed with surprises, egg hunts in the backyard, and coloring hard boiled eggs with the family. As Toodie has gotten older this holiday has become much more exciting each year. We’ve been able to create our own traditions and make long lasting memories that she will always cherish. When I was her age my favorite part of Easter was waking up to the one-of-a-kind Easter basket that my mom would put together each and every year. I was an only child and she always out did herself. Of course, at the time I thought it was the Easter bunny but at some point I kind of caught on. When she started including makeup and gas gift cards I had a hunch she was the one behind these incredible baskets.
My mom was a nurse by day and bushy tailed bunny by night. That leads to my confession: my mom made me a basket until I was 21! Yes, it’s a bit embarrassing but 100% true and I love her for it. She set the bar exceptionally high. When I became a parent I knew I was going to have to get a few pointers. Apparently there is an art to creating that perfect Easter basket and what better way to learn than from the master herself? Yes, that’s me down there and my COOL New Kid’s On The Block poster.
With Toodie’s interests constantly changing I am thankful she has stuck with her love for all things FROZEN. It’s been well over a year and she still asks for anything related to the movie. I even had to buy a FROZEN alarm clock to help convince her to sleep in her own room! So, this Easter I decided to do something a little different and make her first themed basket. While browsing the seasonal section at Walmart I noticed they had a ton of fun FROZEN goodies from tattoos to jewelry. I’ve been collecting things here and there for the past few months to make this basket full blown “FROZEN-esque.”
Shopping for Easter basket stuffers can get overwhelming, especially if you have more than one child with various interests. At Walmart I found everything to be very affordable and there was such huge variety of things to choose from. I even got a few ideas while browsing through each aisle while I grabbed anything FROZEN I could find! This year I wanted to minimize the amount of candy I put in because it either never gets eaten or I find it in the toy box months later.
Instead of over-doing it on the sugar filled treats I replaced them with an adorable Ana & Elsa mason jar tumbler, jewelry, hair accessories, tattoos, a wand, and other items that were fit for a FROZEN queen. I even found a FROZEN themed Easter bucket! This will come in handy during our egg hunt in the morning.
To add an extra touch of sparkle I took one of Toodie’s old Elsa charms from a broken headband and glued it to the center of an Easter flower decoration. On the back there is an alligator clip which makes it easy to attach. This can be popped off later on and replaced with a barrette clip so your child can wear it in their hair. The pastel colors really bring the basket together.
Take a look at the rest of the FROZEN loot I included in Toodie’s Easter basket this year. I cannot wait to see the look on her face when she tears it open!
Building a beautiful Easter basket doesn’t have to break the bank or be complicated. Sometimes adding the simplest of things like small toys can make it extra special and gives you the freedom to be creative without all that candy! What surprises will the Easter Bunny be bringing to your house this year?
