Candy Free Thomas the Train Easter Basket
This guy LOVES Thomas. It’s all Thomas the Train, all the time. Sadly, I know all of the character names, all of the songs, and every movie in existence right along with him. Such is the life of a toddler mom! So, when it came time to put his Easter basket together, I HAD to put some Thomas goodies in there. The Easter Bunny couldn’t mess that up, right? So using my super-sleuth shopping skills I found a plethora of Thomas goodies at Target to fill his Easter Basket with.
We live by the beach and spend many days there throughout the year so the trunks, rash guard and sunglasses were a must.
I realize the Cars socks from the One Spot don’t exactly fit with the theme, BUT the kid has another, yet slightly less, obsession with McQueen. Some movies, a book and some containers filled with stickers to finish it up. I just shoved it all in a big yellow bucket with some tissue paper. Easy Peasy.
Yeah, he totally rocked the Thomas gear. I wonder what he will be into next year?
Candy Free Eggs
Logan’s school has a no-candy policy for their Easter Eggs so I decided on bubbles and stickers. What toddler doesn’t love bubbles and stickers?! I found this cool set of eggs with a handy-dandy giant carrying egg at Target, along with the bubbles and the pad of stickers.
I cut up all the stickers – – make sure you’re comfy, this takes a while.
Stuff those eggs!
And we’re ready to go!
What are some other fun little candy-free things to pack into these eggs? Some of the things Logan got from his friends: Temporary tattoos, shaped crayons, and those parachute men!
Personalized Easter Gift for Teachers
Target always has the greatest things in the One Spot (the dollar bins!). I found these adorable tin baskets and post-it notes and thought they would make really cute gifts for the teachers at Logan’s school. Of course, I added some chocolate and a Starbucks gift card… had to make it worth their while! I wrote their names using a Sharpie paint pen, and added a cute little tag to make it complete.
What are some other good gifts for teachers? Share your ideas! Something like this can really be gifted at any time — like teacher appreciation, valentine’s day, end of school year, christmas, etc.
