After seeing my kids Easter baskets last year, my sister commented on how original they were, and told me I should Pin them on Pinterest. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but decided to Pin the photo last week when I was browsing on Pinterest.
…a few days ago I noticed the photo was getting an influx of repins. I didn’t realize the photo had gone viral on social media until I saw my old roommate had shared it to her Facebook page (not knowing it was mine), and then I noticed all the other shares. I’ve been blown away by all the recent repins and reposts on social media!
The comments on social media have ranged from, “Love it! Great idea!” to “Too much stuff! Those kids are probably spoiled brats!”. All I can say in response is: my kids loved them, and 9 days out of 10 they don’t act like spoiled brats. 😉
I mean look at these angels on Easter last year:
A few years back I had a friend in a Mom’s group whose mom did something similar; using reusable items as Easter baskets. I loved the idea, and I’ve been doing it ever since; each year trying to think of things my kids will need or use in the following year.
These were their Froggy Potty baskets from a few years back when they were about to start potty training: 🙂
So last year I came up with umbrellas because I knew it would be something they would use since they were going to be starting school. The Bubble Umbrellas I purchased off Amazon were the perfect size to fit a decent amount of goodies, and I also love the way they propped up. These umbrellas also come in a variety of colors; I loved the polka dots for the girls!
