Sweet Scented Pillow Pets are a great Easter gift on their own or as part of a basket. There are so many delicious smells to add to the Easter Fun:
Popcorn Panda smells like just popped, buttery movie popcorn. Make it a complete movie themed basket with a DVD or gift certificate for Redbox, a few bags of boxed movie style candy and a bag of popcorn.
Ice Pop Penguin is like summer in a stuffed animal with the delicious flavor of an orange ice pop. Design a summer themed gift basket and add a pair of sunglasses, some pool floaties, flip flops and a beach towel. Use a beach pail instead of a basket.
Bring a touch of whimsy to Easter with the fresh spun Cotton Candy Unicorn. Use a pink or purple basket and make a princess themed basket. Add in a crown, wand and other sparkly goodies.
Pupcake delivers cupcakes with sugary vanilla frosting. Make this gift basket extra special by adding a few Easter themed cupcakes to the basket. Or, add in everything you need to decorate your own cupcakes; sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, food coloring, and cupcake decorations.
Gummi Pup is the fruity scent of the favorite gummy candy. Add Gummi Pup to your Easter Basket with a few different varieties of gummy candies. There are so many fun shapes to choose from.
Cookie Pup brings back the scent of ooey-gooey chocolatey just-out-of-the oven chocolate chip cookies. Make it a cookie themed basket and bake up some oval shaped chocolate chip cookies. Or, add a spatula, oven mitts, a bag of chocolate chips and a mason jar layered with all the dry ingredients for home made chocolate chip cookies.
Watermelon Ladybug is reminiscent of a visit to a spring watermelon patch. Add in a variety of spring themed goodies like outdoor gardening tools and seeds.
Blueberry Muffin Bear smells just like a fresh baked blueberry muffin. Make an adorable blueberry themed basket with other blueberry scented treats. Or, add a blueberry muffin mix or fresh baked blueberry muffins to the basket.
You’ll feel like you just sat down at a diner with a freshly blended strawberry milkshake with the Strawberry Milkshake Cow. Add a gift certificate for a local diner or ice cream restaurant.
Enjoy the scent of a newly unwrapped piece of pink bubble gum with Bubble Gum Piggy. Make a bubble themed kit – add in bubbles and different sized bubble wands. A few pieces of favorite bubble gum candy or some gum balls too.
What should you put in your Easter Basket – you can use the suggestions above or you can make up your own.
- First take an over sized basket – purchase or paint your own in a pastel color.
- Add grass – store bought or you can make your own, just shred colored paper in your home shredder.

Feel like decorating eggs? Go traditional or start a new trend.
You can purchase the store dye kit or you can make your own dye:
Mix 1/2 cup boiling water, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 10 to 20 drops food color in a cup to achieve desired colors. Repeat for each color. Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye for about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon, wire egg holder or tongs to add and remove eggs from dye.
Not in the mood to dye your eggs? Here are some fun alternative ideas:
- Use temporary tattoos and rub them onto the eggs.
- Glue tissue paper cutouts in Easter or spring themed shapes onto the eggs.
- Duct tape – there are so many fun and colorful styles of duct tape.
- Water color paint using small brushes.
Can you find the eggs?
An Easter Egg Hunt is a great way to entertain the children, capture great memories with photos and video, and give out extra treats. If you have children of different ages attending you may want to have a system in place to make sure that everyone gets their fair share.
Set different times – you can have different divisions broken up by ages. You can either hide eggs between the “rounds” so there is a replenished supply. Or, you can set each age group in a different part of the house or yard.
Set different colored eggs – you can purchase the plastic Easter eggs from a local party supply store and designate a color or theme for each age division.
Or, let everyone go out at once but limit the number of eggs each person can get. Make sure you have an amount that is equally divisible by the number of guests attending the hunt. Make a few extra just in case there are spills or lost eggs. These can easily be slipped in at the last minute.
Also, make sure you draw a map of where and how many eggs you are hiding so you can make sure that none get left behind. You don’t want to leave any for animals, insects or get them confused for next year’s celebration.
