Easter Gift Guide + Picnic

I've been rounding up prizes for Lilly and Fletcher's Easter baskets. Fletcher (4 months old now!) is pretty much just getting pajamas and a book, but it's fun to get more creative with older kids' baskets. Here are some Easter bunny goodies that I think would make any kid (and parent) happy to find.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And I recently took the kids on a little picnic. I saw this adorable idea to fill plastic eggs with your child's favorite snacks and I just knew Lilly would love it. It would be fun to incorporate an egg hunt with this idea too, but I didn't have the resources to pull that off as it was just me and the kids at a park.

It was awesome up until the bugs started biting Lilly and Fletcher started wailing. But hey, I tried.

Check out the original idea at Brandy's Crafts.

I love these ideas - especially the diy paddle kit and the adorable bowling set. It's so refreshing to see the same kids toys that I grew up with, in this age of technology.
Very cute!

How cute is that idea?!? I think I'll have to try it. You've gotta love the outings that begin with great intentions but don't go quite as planned! We seem to have a lot of those ;).
