The Perfect Easter BasketApril 2, 2015
It's Easter again! This year feels like it is already zipping by, but we didn't want to miss out on Sunday's fun, so we've whipped up an ideal Easter basket for the kiddos. The Easter Bunny is bringing a good haul this year, that's for sure, and making stops at Bergdorf Goodman and the Gap along the way (and don't forget our favorite–books!). All we need now is a giant, chocolate bunny…we'll take the ears first, please.
1. Make your own Ernest! You can make your own bunny using this Jennifer Murphy Bunny: Ernest the Rabbit Pattern
2. These pajamas from the GAP are awesome! Bunny print for your kiddo.
3. The Egg Tree by Katherine Milhous. This book was the 1951Caldecott Medal Winner and is a story about two children who discover an Easter tradition buried in their grandma's attic.
4. Get those Easter eggs dyed! Or illustrated on, or calligraphed–whatever you like. This should be the ONLY nutritious thing in an Easter basket.
5. Now comes the yummy stuff! Overdo it on these 4-Ingredient Easter Egg Oreo Truffles from Gimme Some Oven.
6. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams and illustrated by William Nicholson, 1922 A beautiful existential story about little boy and his toy bunny who wants to be made “real.” This one always brings tears to our eyes.
7. Here Comes the Easter Cat by Deborah Underwood, illustrated by Claudia Rueda. A funny tale about a Harley-riding kitty who wants to know why the Easter Bunny gets to have all the fun.
8. Jacks! Fun for hours, especially on a sugar high.
9. Reese's Peanut Butter Egg–because, of course!
10. We love this snuggly bunny! Bashful Plush Chime Bunny from Bergdorf Goodman.
