I make an Easter book basket every year for my grandson. His first holiday was all about the bunnies in Guess How Much I Love You and The Velveteen Rabbit:
Last year's theme included Jemima Puddle Duck and Peter Rabbit:
This year's theme was inspired by our Dr. Seuss Birthday Unit:
"A person's a person, no matter how small."
Here's what you need to make it:
Pictured on the left:
Horton Hears a Who! by Dr. Seuss
Horton, the lovable elephant, tries to protect tiny creatures on a speck of dust. An easy reader with delightful verse and pictures.
Pictured on the right:
Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss
It's the talk of the jungle when an elephant hatches an egg. Extravagant nonsense and rollicking verse.
A lovable, huggable Horton plush toy!
And let's not forget the jelly beans and yummy chocolate bunny:
(I purchased the books, plush toy and sweets from my local Barnes & Noble.)
Fill a basket with tissue paper and arrange the goodies like so:
(Add the Easter grass last so it doesn't get smashed.)
And if you want to take your basket to the next level, slip it into a clear plastic bag and tie the opening with colorful ribbon.
Happy Easter to my little wild thing!
