an easter basket for parks

easter is coming soon and so is the easter bunny... even before i became a mom, i loved making my husband an easter "basket" each year. now, as a mom of a toddler, i really enjoy creating a basket for him. however, i think this is the first year that parks will actually understand what is happening (yay!) next year, i might take a toy dump truck or wagon and fill the back with treats but here is what i created for this year. 

what i included | 

+ a vintage romper for summer . pipsqueaks_in_plaid on instagram

if you are looking for some non-candy ideas for your kids, here is a list of 56 ideas 
in addition, here are some ideas for the adults in your life ... and my kids are totally getting baskets for life. again, i love playing the easter bunny!
the little bunny slippers are too cute- i can't wait to see parks running around in them...
another deep love: pouches!
here is last year's basket for parks
what are you planning on including in your kids' baskets this year?


  1. This is so sweet!! We bought Phoenix a stuffed plush (small) BB8 (he loves Star Wars it's so funny) and a book, 123 with C3PO. It's a counting book with characters from Star Wars.

    1. how cute!! my husband would LOVE it if parks fell in love with star wars- you are such a great momma!!

  2. So cute! I'm trying to be intentional with Easter baskets every year and am avoiding getting a bunch of toys (even the small, cheap ones) because we have SO. MANY. TOYS! Each year I plan to get each kid a new bathing suit for the upcoming summer and maybe some new sunnies. This year in particular, I also got the big kids a coloring book and drawing pad (both from Target $1 spot) and some bubbles. For baby Marco I got a set of new sleepers (the cloud island brand from!) and a teether rattle and cutie clip from Ryan and Rose.

    1. so. many!! the $1 spot is perfect for easter and I LOVE ryan and rose!! so cute.
