Friday Faves: Easter Edition

FullSizeRender 20
 One of my favorite days of the year is coming up this Sunday! I love Easter!  I feel like all of my posts lately have been so heavy, it is slightly refreshing to not dig deep and just do a shallow post…to not cry while I type!  Friday’s seem to be the perfect day for those.  A kick off to the happiness of the weekend!
I will be honest, growing up, Easter was all about the candy.  I would wake up to an Easter basket filled with sugar.  Believe me, I loved it, but as a mom, I kind of hate candy only baskets.  So, I started filling my kids baskets a few years ago with a sort of summer toy or busy toy.  I do still get them some candy, because I want some candy for myself, but the real fun is more than that.  Today I am doing my Friday Faves Easter edition.  Hopefully we can bounce some  ideas off of each other!  Here are the things I am putting in my kids baskets this year!
In the babies baskets I am putting garden tools.  I have always had a secret love for gardening and if I can get my kids to join me…win-win!  I bought these garden tools on Zulily.  If you don’t know about Zulily, it will blow your mind!
So then for my older kids, I like to get them busy and vintage toys.  I have been seeing these finger spinners everywhere and I figured Bo might like it.
For the boys I got them these classic wooden pop guns.  Fairly certain I might regret this one because it will annoy me, but oh well!
Mia is really into art and she has never gotten anything like this.  It is a solar art kit.  It will teach her science and art!
 For the family I got the game Bean Boozled.  Granted, it is candy, but this game is our favorite!  So funny!!
 I mentioned that I love gardening so I got each of the older kids a little seedling kit.  I figure it is educational and they will be able to see the results of their hard work!
 And last but not least, for Hayes we got this rock pet.  I figure the kids can decorate it together and then we can drop it off on his grave!  As long as we incorporate him I feel happy!
What are some fun Easter things you are doing to set your kids Easter baskets apart?

    Such cute ideas! And, of course, I love the idea of all the kids being able to work on the turtle rock for Hayes xoxoxo.. (I like to look up different animal symbolism stuff and liked one of these things I read about turtles.. “This animal encourages those who have it as totem to listen deeply to their guidance and trust their path no matter what.” There’s also a lot related to motherhood and fertility… 😉 Wishing all the Tates a sweet Easter weekend!

    So I am behind the curve and just reading this but I had to check it out anyways…I love that you have hooded towels on here! We actually did a hooded robe for my little cause I was over him getting out of the bath and sitting in his wet towel. But same concept! We just did it with dinosaur socks and a kids Bible. He is 2 so he was more than good enough with that! oh….and all the little paper grass 😉
