happy monday after daylight savings. how is “springing forward” treating you? i have to say, not my fave. have you ever wondered why we don’t just meet in the middle (half an hour) and call it good? (i should totes be president, LOL.)
because we just sprung forward, we thought it would be appropriate to share a little EASTER basket idea and printable . . .
before we get into it however, we just can’t resist but tell you how lovely and amazing you are. specifically when it comes to celebrating holidays. regardless of whether you go all out on baskets and entertaining, or plan a small get together with family, or make a special meal, or homemade outfits, or are the best at dying easter eggs, it’s a big job to make holidays feel special . . . . and we just want you to know, no matter what your style is, you’re a totally cool mom.
now for the goodies . . .
my favorite easter baskets contain some sort of activity and nothing seems more appropriate than equipping little ones to plant a garden in the spring.
click ( H E R E ) or the image above to download the printable banner, seed packets, & labels. we printed the seed packets on regular weight and size text paper & the labels and banner on sticker paper, but you could print on card stock and use tape.
in addition to the seeds and treats, we also included a little shovel and rake, potting soil, & terracotta posts & homemade chalkboard paint (diy details coming soon) so they can paint and label their pots with chalk or rocks as garden markers.
to make the basket, we covered a cardboard flat from the garden store with kraft paper. it’s super simple & i like how you can layout & see all the goodies.
here is how you assemble the seed packets . . .
1. download and print the templates (click image above). then cut along the dashed line.
2. using double stick tape, tape along the bottom and right edges. fold the left side over a little over halfway. do the same with the right side.
3. add one more strip of tape along the bottom and fold up.
4. then fill with seeds, fold the top down and close with tape or a sticker.
okay, so i think i covered everything, but as always . . .
if you have any questions or suggestions or thoughts on EASTER, let us know in the comments below!
