A Fun Easter Basket for Toddlers


It's almost Easter and that means that we get to fill up an Easter basket with all sorts of fun things for Ethan and Ivy.  I like to get them some new toys and games for spring each year, some that are educational and some just for fun.  I also like to put a few healthy treats in there for them (because they will get enough other chocolate for Easter anyway!)

I decided this year to be a bit different, so for Ivy's Easter basket I've used a big yellow flexible bucket instead of a basket.  This way we can use the bucket afterwards for toy storage or for messy play!

The big surprise this year is that each of the children is getting a big Easter present as well as all of the little ones.  Ivy is going to go crazy for this Number Loving Oven from LeapFrog. It's going to help her to learn her numbers while she's having fun and pretending to cook things up in her oven.  It comes with lots of different food items that she can cook, and it sings little songs and plays different phrases.  She is going to absolutely love it!  She's very musical, she's always singing and dancing, so the key to learning for her is definitely through music, so I am sure that this will help with her number skills in no time.

She will also be getting this cute Quack Quack game from Orchard Toys.  This is a bit different to other games that we have from them, which is really nice.  It's got all of the fun of rolling the dice, then some colour recognition in matching the spot on the dice to the spot on the card.  And the most fun part of all, making animal sounds!  Ivy's favourite song is Old MacDonald had a Farm, so she is excellent at animal noises and will adore this game!

She is also going to love these WOW Eggs from WOW Toys, she's going to be very surprised to open up her pink egg and discover Mr Chirpy Chick - Chrissie, who she can press down to make a little chirping sound.  It's perfect for her curiosity and love of opening and closing things at this age.  She also gets to discover My Dinky Dino - Bronty who will be even more of a surprise as you don't often expect a dinosaur at Easter.  She does love dinosaurs though, so she'll definitely be roaring that little guy around all day!

I've also put in a couple of Funny Face Egg Jump Ups from Baker Ross that are sure to entertain Ivy for hours.  The anticipation of pressing it down and not knowing when it's going to pop up.  I can almost hear her little giggle already!

And for some healthy treats Ivy gets to try these new Crunchy Grapes from Kiddylicious, which sound really yummy.  She's also got a box of her favourite Gingerbread Men cookies from Organix.  The Easter Bunny also puts little boxes of raisins and mini oaty bites from Organix in the eggs that he hides for the kids Easter Egg hunt!
