Refresh Your Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Egg Decoration

So great! Wouldn’t it be special for your little ones to hunt for these this year?? Reader’s Digest really hit the nail on the head with nine fun, and incredibly creative ideas for decorating Easter eggs. They’ve even included what supplies you’ll need, and the steps for egg design and creation! Hunting for eggs was always such a magical time as child, especially when one or two of the eggs were designated as “prize eggs.” Such fun! So when you’re coloring eggs this year, don’t hesitate to travel down memory lane and make every detail a lasting memory for your loved ones.

There are all types of interesting ways to spruce up Easter, and it’s not just limited to eggs. Head over to The Mom Creative to see her 101 Kid’s Easter Basket ideas, for a collection of goodies to include in your little one’s baskets.

Easter Basket Extravaganza!

I just love waking up on Easter Sunday to see “what did the Easter bunny bring this year!?!”  It may be that some of you have more creative bunnies than others, so for those of you lacking a creative bunny I have compiled cute basket ideas.

For starters, you don’t have to use a traditional basket for Easter.  You can use a brightly colored gift bag, cut a fun top edge to it, and embellish with ribbons and flowers.  For a really fun idea, you can add a strip of candy buttons to the bag and blow the kids minds!

Another struggle for some is whether to add candy or no candy to the basket! There are a lot of good options and here are a few:

   

Art and craft supplies are a great Easter basket filler. www.modernparentsmessykids.com has some cute ideas!

 Bath and beauty items are always fun for girl’s baskets:  throw in some finger nail polish, bath fizzies, earings and lip gloss.

Etsy has a cute “I Spy” bunny:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/23169840/chocolate-bunny-i-spy-bag-fuzzy-brown 

Finally, what is an Easter basket without Easter eggs.  These are inspiring and beautiful!
