Putting together an Easter crate for kids

Putting together an Easter crate for kids

How do you celebrate Easter? We get together with family, enjoy delicious long lunches and eat chocolate eggs. This year our family are coming to us and I’ve been planning some family friendly Easter days out in the local area to help everyone walk off those big lunches.

I love to put together an Easter crate for my children. I usually bring it out at the start of the Easter holidays as it’s packed with crafts and activities to keep them busy during the school holidays. My children love to be creative so hopefully I have filled it with things they will love.

We all love chocolate Easter eggs but I don’t want them to receive *too* much chocolate. They love Playmobil Easter Eggs so I’m tempted to get them one each as an alternative alongside a chocolate egg. The Playmobil eggs contain a buildable toy inside a re-useable plastic egg which makes a nice gift.

I use a small wooden crate to hold everything, it also helps keep everything tidy as the house does tend to get quite messy when we have guests. So far I’ve filled it with:

Peter Rabbit Sticker Book – we saw the Peter Rabbit movie and loved it

Easter colouring book, stickers and colour in tablecloth

Easter egg decorating kits

Wooden eggs and chocolates to hang on our Easter tree

Cotton bag to gather eggs on our traditional Easter Egg hunt in the garden

Easter biscuits and sweets from HEMA

New (Easter) egg cups with chocolate eggs

What do you think? Do you make an Easter crate up for your children or are they happy with chocolate Easter eggs? Or would you put together an Easter crate for your other half? Easter is one of my favourite holidays. Hopefully the snow will have stopped by then and we can have some fun outdoors.

    I love this idea! Stickers are always a winning shout with little ones, aren’t they? 🙂

    We like making hot cross buns together. It’s quite an intensive process, but fun.
