Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Okay, so I have a confession to make. We are not Easter people. Yes, the Easter Bunny comes to our house - I don't think I could have come up with a good explanation for why the Easter Bunny skips our house, but goes to everybody else's, including Nana's - but we don't do church, or a big family dinner, or anything else really.  Last year we skied on Easter which was awesome because it was warm, spring skiing and there was NO ONE there. The big bunny did make an appearance, however, and there was an egg hunt. Plus we skied!

That being said, I LOVE finding items to put in my sons' Easter baskets. I don't know why, maybe I am the ultimate consumer. Yup, that is probably it... The good news is that I also LOVE to share. Look what I found!

Even cuter... what if you get one with a seaside flair?

I don't know why, but I am in love with these adorable bucket bags from Seabags. They are a little pricey. So, my plan is to DIY some other things.

I found this awesome playground chalk recipe, made using plastic eggs. A Beautiful Mess posted this plantable felt garden recently and I figured I could probably get away with just making some vegetables (carrots for the bunny?) for the boys to use when they set up their grocery store or restaurant. I've also been dying to try these from the Love from the Oven blog (I think it was my first pin on Pinterest).

I usually throw in a book or two, some bubbles, a toothbrush (to get all the sugar bugs) and call it good.

Anyone have any other DIY ideas? I am open to suggestions and inspiration. Really I just love the baskets!
