So, am I the only one surprised by how crazy early Easter is this year? It completely sneaked up on me! I was glancing at the calendar trying to plan Hayden's Easter themed birthday party, when I realized her birthday didn't fall on the week of Easter {as it has in previous years}. So, I did what any sensible mom with a house full of Easter goodies would do...
got a head-start on Easter baskets{before my mommy brain kicked in & I forgot all about them:D}! The baskets were filled with an assortment of fun toys they could enjoy outdoors, pencils & notepads because writing notes is the coolest thing when you're 3 and 6 years old and some practical necessities for girls with lots of curls.
I figured my girls would get plenty of "treats" on Easter, so I opted for a non-edible Easter basket. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I had a little mommy-guilt over it at first, but in all reality, I think our girls will be really excited for their baskets! Plus I packed them with some Goody hair accessories that I know both girls will love & more importantly will help make our mornings tear-free a little happier & easier. 
Our oldest two girls have very long curly hair, so I'm sure you can imagine the struggle it is to detangle their hair in the am{especially when they've forgotten to braid their hair the night before}. So, I finally broke down and bought the right supplies for the task last week~as I was perusing the beauty aisles at Target. We already had a slew of black Goody Ouchless Elastics, but I thought I'd get a few more that Hayden{our resident blondie} could also use, as well as two Ouchless brushes to help tame their wild locks.  But I digress, here's everything I used to make our festive basket.
I started by adding a cute ribbon & bow to the basket. Then, I stuffed the basket with some fun Easter grass.
 I also added a couple of cute signs to help tie in the theme.
Next, I threw in some Spring notepads & pencils.
Then, I placed the outdoor toys{chalk, bubbles & skipping toy} inside the basket.
And finished with my must-have Goody hair supplies and a good variety of Easter eggs. And that's it! 
So, what are you planning to put in your little one's Easter baskets?
