Do your kids have an Easter egg hunt, or does the Easter bunny just leave a basket full of goodies? Hunting for Easter eggs is such a fun tradition, although growing up in Australia, we didn’t have the Easter egg hunts. The weather around Easter was always unpredictable and would often be a scorching hot day and all the eggs would melt. What a mess!
When I was a kid, we used to decorate a shoebox each year and leave it out for the Easter bunny. We’d fill it with shredded paper as a nest for the eggs.
Now I prefer to make a home-sewn Easter basket for my kids. It’s fun to make something each year that matches the kids’ personalities and favourite colours. There are lots of options for making one that looks like the Easter bunny, which is a great t, especially when the kids are small.
So let’s get hunting for Easter eggs and choose a cute and easy DIY Easter Basket to sew:
