DIY Easter surprise! An ‘almost’ choc free toddler gift

How is Easter get here already!? It’s already a quarter of a year over! So Lil M is still only 2 so I think we will be waiting until next year for her first easter egg hunt which I cannot wait for, and being so little we are also not giving her a truck load of chocolate. Last year she received a super cute yellow spot egg cup (which has since broken – not by her) a good sized Max Brenner egg (that took her about a month to eat a little bit here and here ha! And it was one of her first tastes of the good stuff) and who we all now know as Spot, a Craftholic rab toy we purchased for her in Singapore earlier that year who is now one of her besties!

This year I went a bit DIY. I am in love with all the blank goods available from Blank. As soon as I saw the blank hollow eggs, I was sold and I had so many ideas running through my head for Lil M, she loves nesting dolls, we have a few OMM sets that she adores, so I thought she would love opening these to find a little surprise in each!

This was so much fun to do, although I changed my mind on one and I did a complete overhaul, many coates later I was happy (the gold and peach egg), I just used acrylic paint, to do the perfect spots, I cut holes out of some very low tack white sticker paper I had, then used them as a mask to paint over, then peeled off.

One egg is filled with a big heap of scratch ‘n sniff stickers – again this little lady is crazy for stickers, the scent is an added bonus to the excitement! Another is filled with hair clips from The Kid Store (co-lab with Milk n Soda), and the other is filled with a Lindt chicken – only one just fit, but she can have the rest hanging outside,  oh and the little wooden rabbit toy is a little click clack I also bought from The Kid Store, she already has a pig that was a gift that keeps her busy for a while racing him along the floors!

As for the little guy, well definitely no choc for him, but I made him this little bandit bunny that I created out of some calico scraps, and left over scraps from one of his change mats I had made. I haven’t finished him yet and I’m not sure if he will work out to be what I had in my head, but if he is, you will be sure to meet him…
