How to Create the Ultimate Easter Basket
Hippity, hop! Easter is almost here! It’s precious to watch the excitement on your child’s face Easter morning. It’s almost like Christmas…well, maybe not quite. 🙂 Come learn How to Create the Ultimate Easter Basket that’s sure to bring joy and squeals of delight from the kiddos.
And you know…filling a basket can be just as exciting as receiving one! 🙂
There’s no magic formula, but there are a few things you can do to make your basket amazing.
Sometimes it’s easiest to start with a theme. This helps the basket come together in little or no time and be personalized for your child, but it’s not totally necessary. Shopping at my local Fred Meyer gives me plenty of options for basket ideas because they have everything you need in one place! Literally everything!
Ok, let’s get started.
Pick a Basket
Choose a basket that works for you. They come in a range of sizes, colors and textures. You’re sure to find one that’s not only adorable, but will also fit all the goodies you can stuff inside. Do you need one extra large or on the small side? Fred Meyer has them all!
These shreds come in so many versions and just about every color you can dream. Match it with the basket, or not. It all works.
The timeless addition that no basket is complete without! There are tons of sizes and colors, so go wild! Fill with candy, stickers, money, or small trinkets. It’s just fun to open them and see what’s inside!
Yes, the Easter candy. You can go for Peeps, chocolate, jelly beans or candy corn. There’s never a shortage of candy in the Easter aisle at Fred Meyer. We like making these adorable Peeps on a stick to stuff into Easter baskets.
Ribbon is just for aesthetic cuteness, but tying a pretty floppy bow to the top of your basket is the perfect finishing touch!
I’ve saved the best for last! The stuffers! This is where you get to customize your basket and make your kids feel so loved! Fill the basket with things your kids are into at the moment. You’ll find everything you need at Fred Meyer!
