When my girls were young and old enough to walk, I decided I wanted to start an Easter tradition, along with the family Easter brunch and Easter egg hunt: Easter baskets!
The first few years, I went a little crazy and loaded up their Easter baskets with stuffed animals, candy, and plastic eggs. It’s funny because my mother never did this for us as kids so I’m not sure why I feel so strongly about it now. Maybe it’s something special I want to do for my daughters and maybe secretly I am hoping this is something they will do after they are married and older, for their own children.
And it’s not about how much I buy or how big the baskets are but I just love to hand select things for each one of my daughters and I love the excitement in their eyes when they are going through it on Easter Sunday. Plus, who wouldn’t want a basket of goodies on Easter?
I love Easter and what it represents for our family. Rebirth, new beginnings, a new season, spring produce and so much more!
Spring represents so much more to me now, here in Wisconsin, where you literally see with your own eyes, the dramatic change in the weather. The snow melts, the weather warms up and you literally see your grass change from brown to green.
I went to ALDI to stock up on some of my favorite things for my Easter baskets. In my mind, you can’t celebrate Easter without candy or chocolate. And bunny and egg shaped chocolate is a must. Am I right?! And now, there are new UTZ (made with sustainable cocoa) chocolates at ALDI.
UTZ Certified involves strict requirements, including better farming methods, better working conditions, better care for the next generation involved, and better care for nature.
I also picked up Easter plush animals, baskets, plastic eggs and this Huntington Home Easter Plaster Painting Kit. My kids love painting so they loved this. I let them have a head start on painting their bunnies so the bunnies would be ready for Easter Sunday.
Did you know ALDI has all kinds of things, and not just food? They have a great seasonal aisle and of course, everything is reasonably priced, so if you needed to make 4 or 5 Easter baskets, you can without breaking the bank!*
Wishing everyone a very happy Easter and if you feel inspired to create an Easter goodie basket this year, be sure to check out your local ALDI store to stock up on all of your Easter must haves this year.
