If you’ve celebrate Easter, this weekend is your time to make an Easter basket. I can hear you telling me you’ve got plenty of time but if you are like me, next week is busy enough getting ready for Spring Break week after Easter so if I want to make baskets and be happy with the outcome, now is the time to get the job done. Seems simple enough but there really is a method to the magic. Always a great source beloved furry friends, Build-A-Bear is one of my favorite brands for those special gifts that your children will both enjoy AND cherish year after year. Thanks to my role in 2012 as a Build-A-Bear Friends Count Ambassador, I was delighted to include Sunny Chick in my Easter basket tutorial. If you are wondering how to make an Easter basket this Spring, it’s really as simple as these three things:
The first step in building a better easter basket has to be the basket itself. Years ago, in fact each year that the children were born, I bought an Easter Basket for each of them from a special custom basket maker and on the bottom of the basket is the year that the child was born, coinciding that the year that the basket was made. They have used these basket every year as they’ve grown. They’ve taken them to outdoor Easter Egg Hunts, they clean up just find, and they are just the right size to hold not too much to encourage not to lavish an Easter celebration, and not too little. They’ve been just perfect through the years for any egg hunt and Easter morning too.
Through the year’s we’ve always included some kind of furry friend. This is why this makes perfect sense to include Sunny Chick. Super soft and just the right size to sit in a modestly sized Easter basket with all kinds of treasures underneath.
I have a special collection of eggs that are only for use by the Easter Bunny. Each year I make sure that I use this special collection of eggs. If in our neighborhood egg hunt or somewhere else I see this pattern, I go out and get a fresh set so that my daughter doesn’t put two and two together that the Easter eggs she sees on Easter morning or from anywhere other than the Easter Bunny.
So I hope these three tips help you to build a better easter basket by having an heirloom or special Easter basket, including a signature gift they can depend on every year like a Sunny Chick from Build-A-Bear Workshop, and having a special Easter Egg dedicated just for thee Easter Bunny himself, you may just find that is definitely how you build a better easter basket.
