What to Look For When Picking Out An Easter Basketby Jacob Martin Owner When you are looking to pick out an Easter basket for your kids, there are a few different things you should consider to make sure you get one that fits your needs as well as with the idea that your kids had of their dream basket as well. Here are a few things to consider.
If you have ever looked for Easter baskets online, you know that the sheer number of different sizes and options can be overwhelming. However, knowing how big you want the basket to be can help you pick from all of the other options with ease.
Small kids should usually have a smaller basket, making it easy for them to move with the basket. This will also help keep them from getting overwhelmed if you put gifts in it and can help you limit the number of items that make it into your home.
On the other hand, older kids may want or need a larger basket. Look for one that will fit all of the gifts you have picked out, especially if you are giving them clothing or shoes. You will also want to consider that baskets for older children may contain packing material such as fake grass or eggs, and you will want to make sure that this material will fit in your chosen basket as well.
2. Do You Want to Decorate It?
If you are trying to keep your children amused throughout the week leading up to Easter, you may want to consider having them decorate their own basket. Usually, Easter baskets brought to you by The Works will come with kits to add bits and bobs to them, but you can also choose a very simple basket and then decorate it with the various things that you have on hand.
If your child bores easily, a basket that is already decorated might be the best idea. Many are covered with fabric, have different things attached to them, or are even themed after popular series.
3. How Easily You Can Take It with You
If you are going to visit for Easter, your child may want to take along their basket. Picking one that is less rigid or that can collapse will make this easier. This is another case where a smaller basket would be a good idea.
4. If You Want to Re-use It Next Year
If you are only going to be using the basket for one year, you can go with one of the cheaper options and not worry about it breaking. This is a great idea if you have children who are rather rough on their things. On the other hand, if you want to use it for years to come, a quality woven basket would work better.
If you ask yourself these questions, you should be able to pick out the perfect basket for you and your children this season. While there are a lot of choices, there is only one that is perfect for you.
