Every year we set out an easter basket for our little ones typically filled with little trinkets that would be used once and tossed or lost. Save yourself from throwing away and wasting money on something that won't be found the next day. I'm here to show you how to have a functional Easter basket! Here are a few steps to get you started on the right path.
1. Pick your Basket
When choosing a basket use one you already have in your home, purchase a basket that can be repurposed as organization in your house or get one that can be cherished and used from year to year! Forget about the wasteful plastic grass and just fill the basket with functional goodies.
2. Add an Educational Toy
Instead of filling your child's basket with random trinkets and items that will be forgotten pick things that will serve a purpose. Adding educational toys will not only provide your child with a learning experience, be a toy that can grow with them yet it will also provide a fun new gift!
3. Choose a Book
Books are read daily in our house and they are an amazing gift for any occasion. Reading helps brain development, assists language, provides imagination, develops emotions and nurtures relationships. Choose a book that promotes fine motor skills has flaps, sliding features and textures to assist in furthering development.
4. Choose an outfit
Our babies are constantly growing, so why not buy something that you already had planned on to fill your Easter basket! We added a swimsuit for Addy as the summer months are approaching quickly. Pajamas are also an amazing idea we love our little sleepies pajamas! Use code HAIZMAN15 for 15% off your purchase.
5. Choose a Healthy Snack
Find snacks you already have in the house, pick a snack you have been wanting your little one to try or pick up their favorite. Holidays don't have to be filled with sugar, gift your little one with a snack you don't think they could live with out!

Easter Basket Grass: Use a cute colored paper shredded that can be reused every year or shred the ads/newspaper you got in the mail you were going to toss anyway!
Easter Eggs: Save your easter eggs to use from year to year, purchase eco friendly easter eggs or use a collapsable egg shaped bath toy as a fillable egg.
Easter Egg Fillers: Fill your kids easter eggs on the hunt with their favorite snacks, little toys you have at home or adventures written on a piece of paper you can add to your spring/summer bucket list.
