Since I posted earlier 5 Ways to Recycle your Easter Basket, I’ve since decided to show you 5 ways my children are reusing their baskets. Keep in mind these are children with some very active imaginations and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
An Umbrella - Yes, the girls were walking around in circles in the living room with their umbrellas, errr I mean Easter Baskets on their heads. When I asked them what they were doing. “It’s raining mom, we can’t get wet, these are our umbrellas.” Of course, seeing this display Little A decided to follow along.
Purses and a Catwalk - Once again, these girls can put on a show and about an hour after seeing the “Umbrella” I was introduced to a fashion show. The girls walked the invisible catwalk with baskets and bunnies in hand and parade around showing off their lovely flocks. BalletGirl (age was even announcing what each one wore. Very cute.
Easter Egg Hunt- Just because they found all their easter eggs first thing in the morning didn’t mean the fun stopped there. The girls and boys all went on their own easter egg hunt with each other. One would hide and the others would find. I remember doing this with my sister when we were younger. Oh the memories.
Doll Transportation - The girls have been using their baskets as if they were planes, trains, cars and flying carpets for their Barbie dolls.
Grocery basket - The kids love playing store and these Easter Baskets really helped them stock up on their favorite pretend items today.
What are some creative ways your children played with their Easter Baskets?
