Easter basket for a 3 year old

Easter basket for a 3 year old

This is an Easter basket for a 3 year old that I have put together for F (who is almost 3). I find that she gets given so much chocolate by family members that it’s nice to put together a none chocolate gift for her too. A couple of weeks back I shared with you the contents of her first Easter basket when she was just 11 months old.  Along with the Easter basket, I have an Easter egg hunt planned for Sunday and some Easter activities for the next few days.

I don’t think I have spent a lot but I really love putting together these baskets and activities. Hopefully, we are creating lots of memories and traditions. I still have the first Easter basket I bought last year, that she can use for the Easter egg hunt but this year’s presents are too big to fit in it. Instead, I have used a slightly bigger basket that usually lives in our bedroom.

The colouring book and my Easter make and do book are both from The works and were £1 each. The bunny ears are from last year. The kiddy dough (which I am assuming s like play doh) was £2 from the works. I picked up the fluffy sheep for £5 in Sainsburys and Peppa pig’s Easter egg hunt was £3 from Tesco. I’ve also got some bunny shaped marshmallows that I may add to the basket.

I also picked up some craft bits in the works and Poundland. I plan to help the ladybird make Easter cards with the Easter bonnet kit. The Easter chicks are for some sensory play ideas that I plan to do and also to put on some chocolate nests that I plan to bake with her. I’ve not decided what to do with the foam chickens yet (suggestions welcome). The plastic eggs will have lots of uses over the next few days and are all from last year.

On Sunday, I plan to do an Easter egg hunt for her (fingers crossed it will be nice so we can do it in the garden). The pink basket is from her very first Easter and I hope she will use it to collect these Easter eggs I picked up in Aldi for £3.99. I’ve downloaded some Easter egg hunt free printables which I will use but again some of them may find their way into our Easter activities over the next couple of days. I’ll be sharing photos of all our fun on Instagram so why not follow me – by clicking here.

Hopefully, F will love all the things I have planned for her over the next few days. Not only will they be great to do for Easter but hopefully they will distract her from our current bathroom renovations. If you are looking for more Easter activities why not visit my Easter Pinterest board.

    Wow what a fabulous Easter basket. You are like me & don’t fill it with chocolates. The plastic eggs are the best. I’ve been using our set for years – the bunny hides them around the house. You can put healthy snacks in some of them or little toys too. Thanks so much for linking up with us! #bloggerclubuk x
