Easter Bucket Party Favors for Toddlers Class

I am one of the party mom’s for my toddler’s Easter party on Thursday. Me, along with another mom are coordinating the gathering and she offered to do the snacks so I offered to do the candy filled eggs for the egg hunt and the goodie baskets as a party favor for each child to take home at the end of the day. Of course, this was right down my alley and of course I wait until the day before the party to get my stuff to put it all together. I work best under pressure. HA!

I think they turned out CUTE!

I found these pastel colored cups at the dollar store and thought “that will work for a basket“. I think they are a measuring cup but hey, it works!*&!@# Ü
Anyhoo’s, I filled the bucket with goodies including candy, bubbles, a wiggly straw, a bunny pencil, small notebook and a whistle. I also included some side walk chalk in a separate lil’ baggie so it wouldn’t rub off on the other goodies. I then filled the cup/basket with easter grass and my basket was complete. Simple yes, and expensive too. Thank goodness I only had to do 8.

Now for the decorating part around the cup. I was anxious to use my Cricut so I pulled out my Doodlecharms cartridge and cut out the bunny at 4 1/2 inches on white cardstock using the blackout key function. This way I would not get any cuts on my bunny just a smooth clean cut around the bunny shape. His cute nose is a heart punch that I put on a pop dot to give it a little deminsion – cut out of pastel pink cardstock. For his cheeks I just used pink chalk and smoothed out the circles and ears. I then doodled some eyes, eyebrows, wiskers and a mouth with a black sharpie. I am a crafter and do a lot of things free handed. So – none of these 8 bunnies are the same. I then used double stick tape and pop dots to stick the bunny to the bucket. I pulled out my colored sharpie markers and doodled Happy Easter and swiggles around the cup. Taaaa Daaaa…. my Easter Goodie Party Favor Buckets for my toddlers Easter party on Thursday.
