Easter Basket Fillers for Babies

Since having kids, Easter has quickly become one of my favourite holidays. What makes Easter so special? I love all the opportunities to spend quality time with my kids. I love setting up Easter activities; doing Easter crafts; decorating Easter eggs; going on Easter egg hunts in the backyard; attending the Easter Day parade and of course, putting together Easter Baskets.

For my kids (4, 4, and & 7 years old), I like to use Easter Baskets as an opportunity to get them essential items for summer like cute bathing suits, cool hats and comfy sandals and shoes. I also like getting them fun and unique toys to carry them into the spring and summer months. I find the best Easter baskets have a good mix of practical items and other items that are just for fun!

That is no exception for baby! You can easily make baby’s first Easter just as fun as it is for older children minus the candy!

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
