If the thought of your toddler twirling non-stop due to a massive sugar rush makes you nauseous, I might have just the right idea for a little Easter treat for your kiddo.
While I am not a big fan of candy-filled Easter baskets for kids – no matter what age – I don’t necessarily want Emma to miss out on sweet treats completely. The Lindt Chocolate Bunny wrapped in gold foil will always have a cameo on Easter, for instance. It’s a childhood memory for myself and reminds me of home. However, I try to find other fun alternatives to add to Emma’s basket and to give to her friends.
Inspired by a lovely idea for recycling used juice containers (found on Repurposed Recycled Reused Reclaimed Restored‘s Facebook page) and driven by my endless desire to
keep Emma distracted teach Emma, I thought a package of seeds would be the perfect filler for the Easter goodie bags for her friends. Easter is the celebration of new beginnings after all.
Here’s what you need:
- package of organic carrot seeds (found at Target)
- Lindt Gold Mini Chocolate Bunnies (found at World Market or Target)
- clear treat bags 4″ wide (found at Beverly’s or Party City)
- white cardstock paper (found at Michaels) or normal paper
- free printable bag toppers designed by Thrasher Home (download below)
