I love Easter for so many reasons. An Easter basket (big or small) has always been part of our traditions even as the boys are getting older. I love to challenge myself so this year I came up with a modern Marvel basket.
Sometimes creating a themed basket can be a bit of a challenge but it wasn’t hard to find Marvel items the boys would love at Walmart.
While I was super tempted to get one of the Easter baskets there (there were some good Marvel ones) I have had a tradition to use baskets or buckets we can use for storage or decoration long after Easter so I stuck with that tradition and went with a large galvanized bin that fits right into the bookcase in my oldest’s room.
To make it “fit” with the theme I made and printed out a badge for each side – Captain America vs. Iron Man.
The “badges” are just taped on with some washi tape so they’ll come off easily.
Since it’s a huge bin, I put an empty cardboard box on the bottom to lift everything up.
Once I had the idea to do Iron Man vs. Captain America (one side for each boy) I decided to pick out 2 colors of Easter “grass”.
Added all the fun toys and products all Marvel themed (we rarely do candy/chocolate)…
Since the boys are older we’re doing an extra hard Easter egg hunt game this year. We’ve never hidden real eggs (it’s too hot) and plastic eggs last year were a bit easy. So this year I found these “craft” eggs.
I marked half of them with a gold dot (Iron Man) and the other half with a blue dot (Captain America). They’ll be hidden well but the problem is, they have to find their own dots so when they spot a white egg, they can only pick it up if it’s theirs. I’m thinking if they find one that’s not theirs they can move or hide it from their brother to make the game a little more difficult and last a little longer!
Have you successfully made an egg hunt more difficult for older kids? Would love to hear your ideas!
I have a 13 year old boy and two smaller children who are 5 and 4. This is a GREAT idea to make things a little more difficult for the 13 year old! I love the Modern Marvel Easter basket too! It’s fantastic! #client
