I used to spend gobs of money on filling my children’s Easter baskets with trinkets and toys that were worthless and just that… trinkets. I know there is no parent on this planet saying, “Yes! Let’s fill our play room with more meaningless trinkets!” I realized after year one and two of Easter baskets that bunny-themed trinkets were not the best choice.
After a million years of motherhood (okay only six and three quarter years) I now spend more time thinking about what the Easter Bunny will be bringing that will enrich my little’s lives. We have a pool and my kids love to swim so I thought that swimsuits would be the perfect addition, they each get a small craft of some sort, and I always add an Easter book.
I found four super cute books this year that I am so excited about adding!
- Happy Easter Pout-Pout Fish: This is a darling board book with just one line of text per page. It’s simple and sweet and will keep the attention of my little one year old as this little fishy turns frowns upside down 🙂
- Peep & Egg- I’m not Hatching: This book takes a newly born chick and it’s egged sibling through a series of adventures to coax the chick out of his egg. He’s nervous because the world seems big and scary outside of his warm space, but his chick-y sibling is trying to show him that there is fun to be had on the outside. I know my three year old will get a kick out of this book!
- Bunny Bus: This cute book drives around town picking up all his animal friends to head to the Easter Parade. This book is perfection for the Easter basket and will definitely bring a smile to my five year old’s face.
- Spring Hare: I love the illustrations in this book! It’s the perfect celebration of spring and the imagination. This cute bunny takes off flying an a magical adventure, and then returns home to the arms of it’s owner. Such a fun story to get that imagination going.
Consider adding these books to your little one’s Easter Basket this year! You’ll be so glad you did 🙂
I received these books free of charge for the purpose of this review.
