Easter is upon us, and honestly, I almost forgot about it entirely. If it weren’t for my son’s preschool art projects that I’m now teaching him, I probably would have forgotten. I love holidays, and Easter is the first big one of spring, so I usually look forward to it. But this year, celebrating Easter amid the Coronavirus pandemic will be different. We won’t be with our extended family, there won’t be the annual Easter egg hunt at my in-laws with all the cousins, the big meal with nearly 30 cousins, and I am debating what to even wear to our Easter brunch this year. But I’m still eager to make Easter special.
On the positive side: I’m excited to be able to decorate our table, cook up a yummy brunch (my favorite food and thing to cook), and to set up our own Easter egg hunt, complete with the kids’ new personalized Easter baskets that I ordered long before all this. James recently learned about the Easter bunny, and I made the mistake of making him sound like Santa in an effort to get him to behave, so now he basically thinks a furry Santa is coming to bring him tons of presents.
So I actually panicked when the baskets arrived this week (which I honestly forgot I even ordered), and I realized I didn’t have anything to fill them with. As part of our self-isolating, I’m really trying to avoid going to any stores this week as we’re supposed to be hitting the worst of COVID-19 this week in New York. Luckily, I found some cute stuff that will arrive in time for the kiddos’ Easter baskets. So if you’re looking for last-minute Easter basket stuffers for toddlers and babies, here are the cutest things I could find that you can still get in time for Easter.
