The baskets. I'm proud that I remembered the baskets in advance this year. Last year it wasn't until the kids were out of school on Spring Break that I remembered I had to play Easter Bunny. It was the one time I was grateful for my pack rat tendencies as I was able to create baskets with what I had on hand. This year the baskets rocked!
Despite all the goodies, both boys were most excited by the chocolate items. I can't blame them.
Next up was our egg hunt in the overgrown backyard. It makes it last a little longer when the grass is 2 feet high...that's my story and I'm sticking it to it.
The boys are holding up their loot--stretchy robots, silly bands and tattoos.
For lunch, I filled empty egg cartons with halves of their plastic eggs. I put together a snack lunch that the boys were very excited to eat. I probably saw this idea on Pinterest. Thank you, Pinterest, for making me seem far more creative than I really am.
Naturally, we decorated our eggs this year following a space/alien theme. Target had these adorable $5 kits that once again made me seem far cooler and more creative than I am. We purchased an extra kit (animals theme) for next year!
