As soon as Christmas and Valentine’s Day are over, the kids start asking about the Easter Bunny. I have to admit, I also love Easter: the beautiful sunrise church service, the newness of spring in the air, the soothing pastel colors and the most delicious chocolate treats, what is there not to love about Easter. We have a lot of fun traditions in our family for Easter, my favorite is making Easter baskets for the boys. Our kids do not get anything big, but a well-thought-out basket with small meaningful toys are a sure hit on Easter morning. In other words “LEGO Easter baskets” are all the rage in our house!
It is not going to come as a surprise to anyone when I tell you that this year’s theme is LEGO. If memory serves me correctly, it was also the theme last year, the year before and…. the year before that! Check out some of the super cute and fun LEGO themed ideas I found – there is something for LEGO fans of all ages!
Instead of using the same wicker basket, year after year, try these fun and functional Easter Basket alternatives!
