Girl Chat {March 2018}

Happy Thursday!! This month's Girl Chat topic is all about those Easter baskets! Do you do them? Do you get them/give them? What do you put in them? I am totally slacking this  year so I can't wait to read everyone's ideas!

A few years ago I made the kids' Easter baskets (and one for Rick and our pup too!) They were so easy to do - the baskets are from Hobby Lobby and I spray painted them white, added ribbon and a wooden tag and done! I still love them all these years later

This Happy Life: Ella's Easter Basket

Usually I like to stick with a theme for their baskets but this year I feel all over the place.  Here's some things I already have or other ideas I like

1. Umbrellas

The kids have been asking for their own umbrellas for a while now so I jumped on some that were on sale at the Disney store - I know they are going to be so excited for these!!

2. Wonder

This movie was so so good that I think I'll put it in Brayden's basket

3. Play Doh

Ella loves play doh and is always asking for a new set - I think she'll love this one!

4. Tea Set

Avery loves Ella's nice glass tea set but she's a little rough so I thought getting her her own plastic version would be great. I scooped this Green toys set on a deal on Amazon for $12!!

5. Lego set

Brayden loves these little Lego sets and I love getting them for all the holidays. This is going in his basket for sure

Of course there will be candy/chocolate but really, I am trying not to go overboard this year. I feel like I have done too much in the past and it's just overwhelming for them and half the stuff doesn't even get touched. This year I'm all about simple.

I can't wait to see what everyone will be sharing, I do still need a couple things so I'll be looking for ideas! I hope you link up below!

  1. I love the Play-dough set to make flowers! How fun is that?!

  2. Your baskets are so darn cute!!! I love how you painted them white, added the ribbon and the tags! Absolutely adorable!

  3. such cute baskets and we love play doh in our house too.

  4. Their baskets are so cute! You did such a good job with them! Ours are so random and just plain wicker lol. I love the idea of putting a movie in there.

  5. I love the idea of umbrellas. I still want to see Wonder.

  6. Umbrellas are a great idea! I would have never thought to put that in an Easter basket but it's perfect for the season!
