Stories, stickers, activities and classics make up our fab list of faves and are just as sweet as a chocolate bunny or marshmallow peep!

We both grew up with the anticipation and excitement of the Easter Bunny hopping by and dropping off filled Easter baskets!

Chocolate bunnies, marshmallow peeps, jelly beans and more filled our colorful baskets to the brim - much to our delight!

To balance out those sweet treats, sometimes the Easter Bunny liked to add little toys, games and books to the basket to keep the fun going... and last a little longer than it takes to eat a Marshmallow Peep!
