The Easter Baskets Are Full

The girls are in bed, and I'm getting ready for bed, so I decided it was time to fill their Easter baskets. Mia really wanted a new bucket and shovel, so I thought it would be cute to fill it with grass and use it as an Easter basket.
I filled it with Peeps, bite size pink heart sugar cookies made from felt and packaged in a cute pink polkadot container, Reese's Peanutbutter Eggs, and a fairy necklace I won over at Treasures for Tots .
For Hayden's basket, I made her felt Peeps since she's obviously too little to eat any candy. I already know Mia will take them over, but it's cute to put in her basket anyway.

I found the idea and pattern for the Chick Peeps here.
As for the bunny Peeps, I made my own pattern. I quickly whipped them out tonight to they definitely could look better, LOL! Instead of sewing the eyes on, I glued these tiny little pompoms on them. I wouldn't recommend using them for kids still putting things in their mouths (like I said before, Mia will be taking them over), but for three year olds it's fine :) I can't wait to see Mia's face tomorrow morning when she sees it all. Have fun with your little bunnies in the morning too!
