Last year was the first year that we were a family of four. N was only a few weeks old but I made an Easter basket – well actually a papier mache chicken – for J, so I thought I would carry on the tradition and do another one this year. I have left it rather late though so the boys have one between them as I don’t think N will really be interested – I’m not sure how well that will go in theory though! The basket is a bit overflowing though as I had to use the one I received at Christmas as part of a hamper, as the chicken from last year got a bit destroyed and by the time we found it, it was too late to go out and get another basket (and we won’t have time today) – though all of this definitely wouldn’t have fit in the chicken anyway – I will be more organised next year!

In the basket this year we have:


  • an Easter colouring book (which will most likely just get scribbled in!)
  • “Legend of Kung Fu Rabbit” DVD
  • “Rabbit’s Nap” lift the flap board book
  • ‘make your own’ bunny glasses
  • rabbit, sheep, and chick finger puppets
  • mini Smarties chicks
  • large chocolate lollipops
  • small Peppa Pig chocolate lollipops
  • chick and rabbit marshmallows inside refillable eggs
  • large rabbit bubble wand (actually recycled from last year!)




I think the boys will love the contents. We haven’t bought them any eggs as they will get plenty from family so this is our Easter gift to them.

  1. I've done an Easter basket and my mother in law has made one for my daughter too. I love the little lollipops! I've also always wanted a bubble wand, though my mother in law put a tub of Minions bubbles in her basket and my little one gets angry that they disappear when she tries to catch them, lol x

    1. Lol, my two go mad over bubbles! x

  2. What a lovely idea. We've ended up with loads of chocolate eggs here

    1. Exactly why I did this lol
