I almost wrote about how this is Maddie Grace’s first Easter, when I realized it’s actually Maddie Grace’s second Easter – she was born the Thursday before Easter last year. The best gift the Easter Bunny has ever brought me! Anyways I’ve been putting a lot of thought and time into what to put into her first Easter basket, even though it’s her second Easter. She won’t really care about candy (and I don’t want her to have too much of it anyways), so I’ve been thinking outside the box. One thing she loves for a sweet treat is when I feed her pudding, especially Snack Pack pudding cups. To make it a little more exciting for the special occasion I dressed up the cups as bunnies, and made bags with Easter mix ins for the pudding so that they’ll be extra fun for her – and for me and Tom. Here is a full list of what will be in her Easter basket this year:
(1) Bunny Snack Pack Cups with Mixin Bags
To make these you’ll need the super snack packs pudding in vanilla, chocolate or both. Your choice. I picked up both vanilla and chocolate for some variety.
For the bunny cup look I hot glued pom poms for the eyes and nose, and pieces of pipe cleaners as the whiskers. I then used clear gift bags to pack up the mixins. I crushed 2 oreos in each one, added some Easter sprinkles, and then topped each bag off with some Jordan Almonds that look like little Easter eggs. The result is delicious. I can’t let Maddie Grace eat the almonds but she sure loved snacking on the pudding with the sprinkles and crushed Oreos, and I was able to enjoy the Almonds.
(2) Fruit Eggs
Like I mentioned I don’t want Maddie Grace having a ton of candy so I’m filling up these eggs with some of her favorite fruits like blueberries, strawberries and grapes, which she will be thrilled with.
(3) Stuffed Animals
Maddie Grace’s favorite thing in the world right now is stuffed animals so what better thing to add in her basket? Walmart had some cute plush baby-friendly options so I picked one up for her basket.
(4) Easter Themed Book
Books are next on MG’s favorite list after food and stuffed animals. I love the books with textures inside and with fun animal faces and luckily there are tons of Easter themed options for those. She is going to love this one!
So there you have it. What are you putting in your baby’s Easter basket this year?
