Easter Goodies!

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.

Next up...

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!
