seth's easter basket
I'm so excited for my sweet nephew Seth to see his Easter basket Sunday morning! He's staying on with me for the week after Easter for his Spring Break. I can't tell you how thrilled I am about that. I'll be sure to post about our adventures next week.
I packed his basket with lots of fun things I know he'll really dig. Candy, well, of course. Each little camouflage egg has a little treat in it. Reece's peanut butter eggs are a must. And I really love Snickers eggs too. I hope he shares!
No Easter basket, in my opinion, is complete without a little stuffed bunny. This one was the pick of the litter at Target. But, unfortunately, she donned a pink ribbon with a rosette. I replaced it with a little of my favorite vintage French silk ribbon in the prettiest of blues, which just happens to be Seth's favorite color.
I found a bag of jungle animals and trees with a playmat at Walmart. I think it was some insanely cheap price like $1.88! Some other things I'm excited for him to find are a jar of marbles, a dinosaur egg to excavate a treasure from, National Geographic cards with famous world monuments, and polka dot sidewalk chalk. I always had a pack of construction paper in my Easter basket so I put that in his too. And I think I told you this last year, but when I was little I found a peso at the bottom of my Easter basket. It was a strange little mystery in my young life. A secret between me and the Easter bunny. So I put a little foreign coin in the bottom of his. I wonder if he'll find it.
Oh, and the fringe across the handle? I tore strips of a fun and funky fabric and tied them all along it. It was actually quickly done and made this plain basket something special.
Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate! To everyone else, Happy Spring!
