Easter Basket Stuffers

Easter is early this year and quickly approaching!! Since my family will be in town for Campbell's birthday, we're spending our Easter here. We'll go to church then are planning on coming back to my house for a nice lunch then a little Easter egg hunt in my backyard. My niece, Avery, will be here so Campbell will have someone to hunt eggs with!
The Easter Bunny always came to my house and it was so fun and exciting for me as a little kid. I want to continue the tradition for Campbell (and Bennett!) and have an Easter basket full of goodies on Easter morning. I've slowly been collecting a few items to put in Campbell's Easter basket and I thought I'd share what I'm planning on giving him.
I've mentioned how much Campbell loves Jellycat books and I thought this one seemed like the perfect Easter gift to add to his collection. I also saw a few different bunny ones and a lamb that I thought would be cute for Easter but I decided to just stick with the duck.
I stumbled upon these Melissa and Doug 7 Days of Creation stacking and nesting blocks and I absolutely love them!!! Campbell's favorite thing to play with is stacking and nesting blocks (still!!) and I thought these were so perfect as an Easter gift. I'm so excited for him to enjoy stacking and nesting them but I also think these will be a wonderful tool to talk, share and learn about Jesus with Campbell!
I'll probably throw in some stickers and maybe a yummy treat or two as a gift from the Easter Bunny and call it good. Of course we all know the real reason behind Easter and the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ can never be celebrated enough. I still think it's fun to have an egg hunt and a basket full of goodies on Easter though. What about you? How do you celebrate Easter? Do you have any traditions or special ways to acknowledge such a beautiful day? Share if so!
