Recently, I’ve been getting quite a few hits from people searching for something besides candy to give their kids for Easter. I struggle with this every year. Some people think it’s unfair and untraditional that I don’t want to fill the eggs and baskets with candy but I feel like they get enough candy from birthday parties and, well, just about everywhere else. I have no trouble finding stuff for the baskets — you can see what the Easter Bunny brought last year — since I can easily include books, activities, sidewalk chalk, etc. My problem is with the eggs. So, here are some of the things that Peter Cottontail will be stuffing eggs with this year:
This Easter bracelet is from WrenPlum on etsy. It is gorgeous, so much so that I considered keeping it for myself.
Katie is obsessed with jewelries and especially necklaces. She’s insisted on wearing junky ones so we’ve started to try and get her nicer ones — not expensive — but nicer. I’ll add a plain cord or silver chain before dropping it in the egg. This also is a beautiful item, this time from OliviaMoon on etsy.
Continuing with the theme Katie loves to make jewelries too so these beads are for that. I’m thinking I can split them among a few eggs. They are from Buttons and Pearls on etsy.
So, that’s what we’ve got so far. Did you notice there is pretty much nothing for the boy? Hopefully that will be remedied before you know who comes hopping down the bunny trail.
