Easter is coming and with it comes visions of warmer weather, spring colours and playful decorations! Spring is the perfect time to start thinking creatively and to start putting together some DIY’s!
Putting together Easter baskets and treat bags doesn’t have to be an expensive ordeal.
DIY Easter baskets don’t need to be filled with sugary candies and chocolates. Consider using items and toys that promote play! Treat boxes can be used for the older kids and can even be used as place cards for the dinner table.
This year I am putting together an Easter basket for my 3-year-old neighbour, who is the cutest little girl. Since she is still so young, I wanted to incorporate items that help develop her fine motor skills rather than fill it with just candy.
I used a pink plastic woven basket that could later be used as a sand toy. Below are the items that I included in her Easter basket, all of which I found at the Dollar store or Walmart.
- Hair Bows
- Sidewalk Chalk
- Minnie Mouse Puzzle (24 pieces)
- Stuffed Animal
- Plastic Eggs (filled with chocolates)
Bunny Treat Box
I found these premade treat boxes at my local dollar store to use as a special gift for some of my friends. I filled them with Easter chocolates and decorated them with handmade tags for a personal touch.
Bunny Place Cards
Your Easter guests will be looking for their seat around the dining table and what better way to guide them with place cards! These cardstock bunnies were super easy to make and will look adorable on each place setting.
- Draw or trace a bunny silhouette onto a piece of cardstock as your template
- Use your template to trace out however many place cards you need for the table (I choose brown cardstock, but you can use whatever colour you want)
- Carefully cut out each individual silhouette
- Using a hole puncher, punch out individual white circles to use as the cotton bunny tail
- Glue each tail onto your bunny silhouette and let it dry
- Write each guests name onto the silhouette and voila!
Hopefully you enjoyed some of these Easter DIY’s!
