Did you already stuff your Easter eggs?
Considering it's Friday and Easter is SUNDAY, I'm sure most of you have. Oh well, I'm a last minute kind of gal and for those of you that are too, here are a couple ideas. For those of you that do things in advance, here are some ideas for next year?!
Part of the reason I am just now stuffing eggs is that it took me this long to figure out what I was going to put in them! I am stuffing eggs for a baby (really a toddler, but I'm just not ready for that word)! It's going to be our first year for trying out an EGG HUNT!! I'm so excited. But, anyways, I can't stuff them with candy or most small things that fit in the eggs because of choking hazards and I'm a mean mom and don't give her candy yet! I know the usual egg stuffing ideas, and I have some of that too, but I wanted to be different...
I always have to be different...
Walking down an isle in the grocery store I spotted the game Barrel of Monkeys!!!
They are a perfect fit in the bigger sized eggs. This again works out... bigger eggs should be easier for a baby to see when compared to the smaller ones!
I realize she probably won't be able to hook the arms and actually play the game. But, it is still great for putting all the monkeys in the barrel and dumping them back out. Eventually, she will be able to hook the arms and count them!
I work better underpressure. I probably never would have come up with this idea if I started my shopping last month or even the beginning of this month.
Next, I found these little cuties in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby.
They are beginners washable markers in animal shapes that also fit perfectly into the bigger Easter eggs! Add a Easter coloring book to your little ones basket and you are set!
Lastly, some classic choices. Can you really ever go wrong with Hot Wheels and raisins?
As a side note: Make sure you don't get a super big Hot Wheel or it won't fit into your eggs!
