    Easter Basket Ideas

    This year I bought WAYYYY too many things to put in C’s Easter Basket.  The first year I made her a basket she was under 1 year, so I only put stuffed animals, small toys, and little things she could play with.  The second Easter basket I made her, I added eggs with little treats (goldfish crackers & annie’s gummies), as well as toys like Play Doh.  The Play Doh was a HUGE hit.  Now that C is almost 3, I’ve added some sweet treats and a ton more toys that she can enjoy and play with. xo Here are some Easter basket ideas for your little ones this year!…
