EASTER EGG SURPRISE BALLS

Just like I did for Ben's Valentine present, I made the girls their own egg-ish shape surprise balls. We ditched the Easter basket and did the balls instead and I think with all the gifting they were given throughout the day from family, the surprise balls were definitely the way to go. I wonder if they would get bored if this became an Easter tradition instead of baskets and as they get older, maybe some dollar bills can get wrapped inside.

I have four girls, but did three balls because Glow didn't really need one. The girls were beaming with the discovery of each new little treasure and I love that though the items were small and inexpensive, it did the job of giving the girls a special little something to celebrate the day. These surprise balls are perfect for tons of occasions!

If you celebrate Easter, what kind of goodies do you gift the little ones in your life?

  2. Super fun! I had intended to do these this year but Easter snuck up on me... next year!

    I am stunned by Soul in these pictures... she doesn't look like a baby anymore! (Maybe it's just Glow sitting beside her in comparison, but still!)

  4. Your girls are so adorable! We didn't do baskets either but instead did a scavenger hunt with little clues leading them to some packages with a few treats and homemade bunny puppets (pics here http://www.kenjiandjen.com/2012/04/easter.html). I think little things are the way to go with kids...they can really appreciate the simple things!

  10. We did Easter baskets with 4 little toys/prizes for each kid. It was a nice day, and we didn't do the baskets until they woke up from their naps later after church. I didn't plan it this way, I just didn't have time to put their basket together the night before. It wound up being nice since we were able to just focus on getting ready for church at the park. I think I will start waiting until later to give them their gifts instead of in the morning since it worked out so well.
    And I did the surprise ball for my husband's birthday last month, thanks so much for your awesome ideas!

  12. Love the Easter egg balls! My youngest (who isn't so young anymore...15!) has a birthday in December so one year for her birthday we did Snow balls for the party favors - it was very fun!

    Can't believe how grown-up all of your girlies are looking...even little Glow!

  13. cute idea! so kind of random question do you guys go to CrossView Church in LA? I saw a picture on a freinds facebook from a wedding and it really looked like your girls in the picture. the pastor at the church is P.J. Tibayan and my husband did an internship for 6 months with him at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. Anyway if that is you guys. funny what a small world it is. If not...sorry for this random comment :)
