If you are anything like me you dread the part of Easter where your children turn into little hyperactive monsters, due to the over consumption of chocolate! It’s unavoidable and I don’t stop grandparents or godparents buying them Easter eggs, but I do always make sure I buy them something which isn’t chocolate to try to strike a balance.
I have been doing my own research into lovely chocolate alternatives and we also sell some lovely bits online to:
- An Easter Bunny
I am obsessed with the Jellycat cuddly toys and the bunny is the sweetest little thing. They must be the softest cuddly toys I have ever set my hands on. Summer has a little bunny, which she got when she was born and it’s still one of her favourite toys.
- Bunny hair pins
When searching for new products for our #littlespringedit I came across these gorgeous bunny hair pins from Meri Meri. They are super cute, cheaper than most Easter eggs and the perfect Easter gift for a little girl. Shop now while stock last.
- Easter Pyjamas
I love buying the twins new pyjamas and they always get a pair at Christmas, so this year I am going to continue the tradition into spring! I have been having a little hunt and found these gorgeous ones from Mini Boden. I just need to find some for my little boy now!
- Easter themed imaginary play toys
These Easter themed finger puppets are also a fun chocolate alternative for your little ones. Inspire their imaginary play this Easter.
- ‘We’re Going on an Egg Hunt’ book by Laura Hughes
This beautifully written and illustrated book is about a little group of Easter bunnies who set off on an exciting lift-the-flap Easter egg hunt. There are 10 eggs to find and count along the way and I have already ordered a copy.
My twins love stickers. They stick them on everything and anything and will spend hours creating pictures and sticker scenes together. If you are looking for something a little bit special this Easter, we have just starting stocking these sweet unicorn stickers. I know one little girl who will really like these.
- Bunny dress up
Every child loves to dress up, especially at Easter. We always go on an Easter egg hunt and do other Easter themed days out over half term. These little bunny dress up ears and tail sets are adorable. Available on online now. Stock limited!
