Go on and give an infant or a toddler her Easter basket too. You could fill these with bed time and fairy tale story books. Add a picture story book on Jesus too to go with the Easter spirit. For the toddlers you could pack a basket with candies and homemade cupcakes too. Chocolate bunnies, marzipan eggs, lollipops, jelly beans – all are kids’ favorites. So don’t miss out on them.
For an infant, pack him t-shirts with personalized embroidery or paint work. For example, her name written on it or even cute cartoon characters painted onto the t-shirt. Add a packet of diapers too if you wish to. Toddlers love scribbling with colors.
