Easter baskets are one of my favorite parts of spring. I love to look at our Easter baskets as a way of welcoming New Growth, New Life, New Light with the winter melting away. That said, I love our Easter baskets to include items that inspire outdoor imaginations!
Easter is such a great time to start thinking about your garden and growing plants. I put this list together to inspire you and your little ones to get outside and grow something lovely too.
