Let's take a look at what's in Bears basket first.
What's inside is really a splattering of things I had left over to give him. There is a smock, Peter rabbit book, water color set, chocolate egg, glow sticks, light saber bubbles, Take n Play train (gater), 2 little people, and 2 mini Marvel Mr. potato heads. Again lots of random stuff, but all things he should like.
Why little to no candy? This is the biggest question I get asked. Frankly, I don't think he really cares all that much about the candy. Especially not with the other toys in there. He isn't big on the candy anyway so why encourage it. Additionally, growing up I don't remember that much candy in my basket. Sure we got a chocolate bunny and some peeps, but I preferred the sidewalk chalk and Barbie much more than the sweets. So small toys with some treats are what we do.
Onto Eve's Easter Basket. She's 8mo and really this is more for pictures than anything else. There is stuff she can use in there though.
Next year I am hoping to be able to make them a bit more exciting. Here's to hoping!
