Is it me or this year just flying by? I’m officially 32 weeks in my pregnancy and I’m trying to prep for anything and everything in advance. I’ll most likely be having baby girl right before Easter and I’m looking to find ways to still have our Easter egg hunt even though I will be exhausted. We’ve been having Easter egg hunts since I had Evan (my oldest) and the boys (plus now Olivia) have always loved the thrill of finding the eggs and gathering as much candy as they possibly can. In an effort to continue the tradition, I decided to make a DIY Easter Bunny basket filled with MARS® Mixed Mini Bags (available at Sam’s Club now). I always head to Sam’s Club early to prep for any special occasion, just as I am with Easter.

The MARS® Mixed Mini Bags 165ct Spring themed bags  are perfect to build Easter basket and will be more than enough to fill the DIY Easter bunny basket. It’s enough candy for an early treat and then later when we do the Easter egg hunt! I love that the MARS® Mixed Mini Bags has such a great variety of everyone’s favorite chocolate candy like M&M’S®, TWIX®, SNICKERS®, MILKY WAY®, and 3 MUSKETEERS® that I might even make a basket for each one of the kids to store all their goodies! This Easter will be a lot of fun to watch the big guys run around with Joseph and Olivia and include them in their egg hunt.

I had a lot of fun making the DIY Easter Bunny basket. It’s easy enough to even make with kids!

Supplies:

Small round wreath

Medium pointed wall basket

Pipe cleaners

Scissors

Glue

Wired bow

Large pom pom

Easter grass

Instructions:

Take two pipe cleaners, wrap around the bottom of the small wreath and attach to the pointed wall wreath.

Hang baskets and tie bow onto the same spot and cover pipe cleaners.


Take two pipe cleaners, attach and bend into the shape of bunny ears. Repeat. **Don’t worry about bunny ears being even I purposely left mine two different sizes. Attach to the top of small wreath.

Adjust ears and bow. Glue on your pom pom.

Add a pretty flower, stuff with Easter grass and candy from the MARS® Mixed Mini Bags and you’re good to go!

Add a sweet treat to any room with this DIY Easter bunny basket filled with M&M’S®, TWIX®, SNICKERS®, MILKY WAY®, and 3 MUSKETEERS® from MARS® Mixed Mini Bags on a door, in the kitchen or even a play room. Then after Easter, you can even use the DIY Easter Bunny basket for hanging a plant or pretty flowers!


Olivia's First Easter Outfit from Kohls + DIY Tutu Basket

Easter has always been a favorite holiday of mine. Now that Olivia is here, it’s even more special to me because I get to shop for adorable girly Easter outfits. I actually didn’t think I’d be up for it this year because of all of the complications I had with her delivery but with a little help from my mom and dad, I managed to make it out to Kohl’s (click here to see my in store shopping pics). It’s our favorite place to shop for special occasions like Pascuas (Easter) for our entire family and now it’s also the place to shop for Olivia’s very first Easter. It was a very special day for me. I was shopping for Olivia’s first Easter outfit and Kohl’s had just about everything I needed for me, Olivia, and all of her brothers. They had everything from Easter toys, baskets, Reese’s, Peeps, toys, shoes, and an amazing selection of outfits and even Easter decor.

Kohl’s Easter selection of Easter clothing for kids was gorgeous and I had a hard time picking just one outfit for Olivia but I finally picked a colorful Spring set by Carter’s and a handsome outfit for Joseph by Osh Kosh that I know he’ll get to wear a lot more than once.

For Olivia’s basket I decided to give it a personal touch and I made her basket a tutu (see full tutorial below), then filled it with Easter toys, most of which are up to 60% off right from Kohl’s. For Joseph, we got him the stuffed dinosaur and frog with the adorable matching book It’s All Mine and for Olivia The Quiet Bunny for only $5 each for their baskets.

What You’ll Need For Basket:

First Easter basket

Am I the only that thinks those pre-made Easter baskets are boring? I couldn’t find one that was suitable for Joseph so I bought a wicker basket that I plan reusing later on in his room and filled it with some stuff I knew he’d love.

I bought this chalk board stake at target for only a dollar and wrote Josephs name with cool chalk ink pens that I ended up giving to Robert who loves to dry and do crafts. They write on glass or chalk boards just like a pen and can be easily erased with a little water. Loved them!

I didn’t make the boys Easter baskets but they’ll definitely be hunting for eggs. To make the hunt a little more fun we’re going use Hoppy Paw prints along the paths! It’s so cute and super easy to use. All you need to do is dip the paws in some chalk and press down.
