Easter is fast approaching and I would love to share with you how to create an Easter basket for kids. I have made these for my kids in the past, this year I have found some great goodies to suitable for children to fill your Easter basket to keep the kids happy over Easter and throughout the School Holidays, after all no one wants bored children this half term!
I love collecting gifts throughout the year to fill my basket with and personalising them to suit the loved one I am gifting it to.
Obviously Easter gifts are really easy to find at this time of year, you can even pick up some really lovely Easter gifts and toys for Easter whilst doing your weekly shop at local supermarkets.
Your Children will really appreciate the thought that has gone into creating such a fun Easter gift that lasts far longer than any chocolate Easter egg.
Inside the Easter basket I have created are gifts and activities which can all be picked up from your local Asda store or on-line without breaking the bank.
To make the basket
I picked up this hamper basket which came filled with Christmas food & drinks in the sale after Christmas. If you do not have a hamper you can look in your local charity shops and usually pick one up for just a few pounds.
Another very cheap alternative is to use a cardboard box which you can wrap in gift wrapping paper to match any occasion. Fill the basket with shredded paper which I picked up from my local pound store.
