Even before I became a mom I would make my husband an Easter “basket” each year. I love finding fun treats and gifts to give my loved ones on Easter. Now as a mom of 3, I get really excited to create unique basket ideas for them each year. This year I decided to create a My Garden Easter Basket for one of the kids. The other 2 will be getting something similar. I could not wait to go through the wide variety of new and classic treats from Hershey to use to fill up the the “basket” with. I found a fun twist for the basket this year.

What I used/ Supplies:
*Toy wagon and small shovel, rake, and hoe- similar to these Beach Wagon Toy Set for Kids with Sand Wheel, Bucket, Shovel, Rake, Water Pail, Starfish and Turtle Shape MoldsGarden Wagon & Tools Toy Set for Kids with 8 Gardening Tools, 4 Pots, Water Pail and Spray – Great for Beach & Sand Too!
*Hershey’s Speedy Bunny Solid Milk Chocolate
*Cadbury Hollow Milk Chocolate Bunny
*Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
*Cadbury Creme Egg Candy-
*Whoppers Mini Robin Eggs Candy Carrot
*Jolly Rancher Easter Shaped Lollipops
*Jolly Rancher Jelly Beans
*Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Duckling Cane
Fun fact: Cadbury Creme Egg Candy– Hershey has distributed classic Cadbury Creme Egg Candies in the U.S. for decades, and this Easter favorite combines traditional milk chocolate with a center of pure gooey goodness that people know and love.
What I did/ How to make:
I filled the toy wagon with yellow shredded paper. I then took all of the Hershey treats and filled the wagon up with them. Last I added the bunny ears with the garden tools.
I just love how the My Garden Easter Basket turned out. Now after having fun on Easter opening all the treats, the kids still have a toy they can use outside in the garden or yard. We are big fans of Hershey too, so the added yummy treats just make the basket a hit.
Each Easter morning the kids wake up to an Easter Basket. I never told them the Easter bunny brought them but that is what they tell me. “The Easter Bunny left us a basket mommy”. I let them enjoy the idea while they are still small. We host an annual egg hunt and lunch at our house too. Easter is about family and fun for us. The Easter basket making is one of my favorite parts as a mom. Look forward to seeing the kids faces this year when they open their My Garden Easter Basket.
