This year, Easter just snuck up on me. I can’t believe it is this week already. We have been so focused on house hunting and saving money that I don’t think we will be paying much attention in great detail to Easter baskets, Easter Egg Hunts, Easter Decor, Easter outfits or Easter gatherings. Which is a good thing anyway, because really, even though all that stuff makes Easter lots of fun, that is not really what the focused should be about for Children of God.

Nevertheless, just for the fun of it, i’d like to share what I would put in my children’s Easter basket, if we were doing that.

princessShe is pretty much good at anything she puts her hands on, seriously, i’m not kidding, it’s not mom bragging. She sings, writes poetry & stories, dances, builds awesome Lego creations, draws and more. Recently, she have been into making meals in the kitchen, so to further encourage that found love. Her Easter basket would be Kid Cook oriented. Here’s what I am looking at:

Betty Crocker Kids Cook! (Betty Crocker Cooking)
Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cook Book (Better Homes and Gardens Cooking)
Curious Chef 17-Piece Measure & Prep Kit
Curious Chef 3-Piece Nylon Knife Set

firecracker toddler title He is soon going to be ready to transition into his toddler bed, so I would love to get him a cool one. He is also getting interested in words and books, as well as growing his eye-hand coordination.  So this is what I’d put in his basket.

the baby He doesn’t need much. I’d give him some cloth diapers to try and some safe and cute baby toys to play with. He is teething, so a teether would be a good gift as well.
