I can’t believe that it is time already to be preparing for Easter! I feel like I am still recovering from my daughter’s birthday celebrations in February! Easter and Springtime are such a fun time of the year. We are finally getting some nice weather again and it seems to brighten everyone’s mood. As a teacher, Easter break is always something to look forward to and the kids know that Summer break is right around the corner!
Easter is always a little different in our house because we are Orthodox, which means our Easter usually falls on a different date that everyone else’s. This means while everyone is filling up on candy and having fun Easter Egg Hunts, we are still waiting for our day to celebrate, so it requires a little extra patience from the kids. Since we do have to wait longer, I want to make it extra special in our home. I am hosting Easter dinner again this year, which I am excited for, but I am really looking forward to our Easter Egg Hunt before we go to Church! Princesses are the number one attraction at our house this year (as you can see in our Princess Birthday Party!) so this year I am going princess themed and I think it is going to be so much fun!
I plan to start the morning with Princess Pancakes. I will use food coloring to color our pancakes pink and purple and top them with some glittery sprinkles to make them extra special. For the Hunt, I plan to use princess stickers on all of the plastic eggs to dress them up a bit. And then at the end of the hunt, this fun Princess basket will be waiting!
This was super easy. I bought this blue basket, which I thought was the perfect Cinderella color, at Walmart for less than 5 dollars. Walmart has a great selection of basket and basket stuffers this year. Seriously, look at this giant aisle of baskets! This was only one side of it too!
With all the Easter baking goods and decorations I found this fun section of different Disney themed basket stuffers.
My favorite thing I found was this Carriage Bubble Blower. You blow one on side and bubbles come out the other! I think my daughter will love it!
I love this Princess Pail, as well. I thought it would be great for holding the collected Easter eggs. It can double as an outdoor toy bucket this summer as well!
The basket also has 1 bag of Smarties, A Princess Easter Book, Princess Lipstick and glow in the dark nail polish, a Princess bracelet making kit, and an insulated Cinderella cup.
To make the tutu part of the basket I simply laid out 8 three foot pieces of tulle in a stack and then wrapped it underneath the basket. I laid out another 8 pieces and and wrapped those underneath but in the opposite direction so that all sides were covered. I pulled all four end sections up to the top and then wrapped another piece of tulle around the top to hold them together. I fluffed out the top pieces so they looks puffy and tutu like and then called it a day!
I am really looking forward to Easter this year and can’t wait for the Bunny to drop off this DIY Disney Princess Easter Basket for a very excited little girl! What are your Easter plans for this year? Any fun traditions?
