Never in my wildest dreams did I picture being on lockdown and on self-quarantine for Easter but from the looks of it, I don’t think Cassie and Xavi will get to do an Easter Egg Hunt with their friends this year. The Corona Virus is still continuing to increase in numbers and it hasn’t even reached its peak so this year’s lists have a lot of things we can enjoy at home while we’re doing our share by practicing social distancing.
We’re doing a BIG Easter gift , a playset from Coco Village, instead of going crazy on their baskets because of our current situation so we reused their baskets from last year and I also included in their baskets some items that I’ve been hoarding for them. Clothes and shoes were the last on my list because we still have a lot plus I don’t think we’re going anywhere any time soon, we’ve been living in our Pjs for the most part so without further ado, here’s this year’s Easter Basket Ideas.
Btw, here’s the bundle deal from Coco Village: the kitchen, the mini market and a shopping cart all for $199. Don’t forget to use the code: LETSPLAY at checkout if you wanna get your kids the entire set.
1. We are the Gardeners Book ||
Joanna Gaines is still “all the craze” and we snagged this book with its spring-perfect illustrations from Ollie’s for $3.99.
2.Dream World: 20 Frameable Prints of Emily Winfield Martin’s Bestselling Children’s Book Illustrations ||
Thought I’d show you the prints that you’re getting if you’re purchasing the box. The fantasy-feel of these illustrations make the perfect display for Cassie and Xavi’s room when we redecorate it. We were lucky to find it on sale at our local Ollie’s for $2.99.
3. Educational Insights Hoppy Floppy’s Happy Hunt ||
The perfect Easter game to play with your kids ages 3+ (and yes, you can still play with it after Easter). Its a great first exposure to board games as it teaches our little ones fine motor skills while having fun.
4. Wonder Nation Girls Denim Blue Stripe Sandals With Ankle Strap ||
Not sure why these sandals give me a “Mediterranean getaway” feel but they’re comfy, they have cute striped bows and are convenient to put on and take off. #momwin
5. Cry Babies Magic Tears Fantasy House||
Obsessed—-ever since we got exposed to Cry Babies, Cassie would not stop talking about them so we are grateful for Cry Babies for sending us a bunch of their Fantasy House line to add to Cassie’s Easter basket.
They are these cute little babies that have their own houses and when you bottle feed them, they cry real tears, their pets have a line too and they also have their own cartoon series, just a heads up.
6. Wonder Nation Striped Sleeveless Dress ||
Was surprised when Walmart came out with this beaut . I fell in love with the colors and I think its the perfect dress for Spring and Summer.
7. Educational Insights Playfoam Pals Unicorn Magic 2-pack ||
Another gifted item from Educational insights that Cassie is excited to play with—thank you.
Right now there are two things she is looking forward to: playing with the squishy playfoam and the surprise waiting for her inside.
8. Squishmallows Easter Plush Toy||
Buttery soft and squishy—that’s all you need to know.
1.Squishmallows Easter Plush Toy ||
Again, buttery soft and squishy—- I wouldn’t be surprised if your kids want to collect them all.
2.Hearth and Hand 6 pk Play Animals||
Yes, we always get excited over the wooden toys Hearth and Hand comes out with but Xavi has been wanting to play with Cassie’s doll house and what better way for them to play together if he had some animals to contribute to their pretend play, right?
3. Color Matching Egg Set||
There are different versions can teach your little ones about shapes, numbers, colors, etc. Right now we want to focus on numbers for Xavi so that’s what we got for him. Learning numbers through Eggs—- I though that would be an Egg-citing add on to the Easter basket. 😀
4.Piper Finn Oxfords ||
Probably one of our most favorite brands, they have the cutest shoes from Oxfords to Mary Janes. They’re stylish and comfortable you wouldn’t want your kids to ever outgrow them.
5. Magnetic Wooden Dolls – Career Jigsaw Puzzle ||
Perfect for developing Xavi’s matching and sorting skills and a great way to introduce him to the idea of “occupation”.
6. Dinosaurs Jumbo Sorting & Counting/ Matching Game ||
Xavi is obsessed with anything dinosaur right now, this will serve as a great stacking toy and when he’s ready we can eventually transition it to a sorting game to teach him fine motor skills.
7.June and January Tank Jumper ||
If you’re big on color basics and mix n match then June and January is the brand to know. Their jumpers are a fresh add-on to any kids wardrobe.
8. The Little Homie Books (First 50 Words with 50 Cent and Where are My Homies At?)||
Where my Homies at? Hahaha.
I don’t think a lot of the people I know (now) enjoy Hip Hop but I know I did back in the days. These books are a cute and a fun way to introduce your kids to some legendary Hiphop icons.
For add ons, the tattoos from Ducky Street are always fun, they have the cutest designs and are ver affordable.
There you have it guys, I know this Easter is somewhat out of the ordinary but I hope you have a blessed celebration indoors. Be safe, Stay healthy and have a Happy Easter!
