Disney Marvel Easter Basket

When my kids were growing up, they would awaken early on Easter morning to find huge baskets filled with toys and candy.  I remember trying to coax them away from the goodies while struggling to get them dressed in their new Easter duds and out the door for the special Easter service.

I’ve always preferred creating my own baskets centered around each child’s interests instead of buying the generic, prepackaged varieties.  It’s just more fun, right?

Disney Super Heroes

When the grandkids started arriving (I know, I know, I look MUCH too young for grandkids.  Now’s the time to nod your head in agreement) traditions changed.  Forget the kids, I’ve got grands! 🙂

I began to establish new traditions with my 4 grandsons.  There’s not a girl in sight (so far).  Every spring I get together with my daughter to find the perfect Easter outfits for the boys.  I won’t mention the fact that there’s an entire acre of beautiful Easter dresses for girls and 2 racks of boys stuff.  How many argyle sweaters can one boy have? I always enjoy purchasing their Easter outfits every year, even while their mom is saying, “Mom, you don’t have to do that.”  I always reply, “I know I don’t have to; I want to.”  It’s a fun tradition and there’s just something about Easter Sunday that requires new clothes.

Of course, I don’t stop with the new clothing. Last Easter I created an Easter Candy Buffet complete with scoops and bags.  Watching those boys eyes light up as they crammed as much candy as possible into their bags confirmed that I had won the Nana of the year award.

This time I decided to go a completely different route and not overload them with candy.  Their dentist will thank me! Plus, they’ll receive plenty from parties and their parents.  So, I headed to Walmart to do a little Easter hunting of my own and hit the jackpot.

Marvel Easter Basket

When I spotted Disney’s line of Marvel Super-Heroes, I knew that I would, once again, be crowned the best Nana ever.  The boys are Marvel fanatics!

The boys are going to love their Disney Marvel Easter baskets filled with all of their favorite Marvel characters. I’m crazy about the bright colors and ease in creating these fun baskets and can barely wait to see the gleam in their eyes.  And they won’t miss the overload of candy at all.

Helpful Hint:  When putting together a basket, make sure the items are different heights and sizes. Notice the Easter grass is a contrasting color.  Also, don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to the actual basket.

Isn’t this Marvel pencil box the cutest?  My youngest grand loves to carry around little cases, so this is going to serve as his “basket” from me.

My 3-year-old grandson made me smile a few days ago when I was driving him home from a sleepover at my house and he said, “Nana, I wish you lived with us.”  Ahhh. Family traditions, including Easter, are the BEST traditions.

Thanks for the ideas! I’ve been struggling this year trying to figure out if I am going to do a Easter basket for Pookah and if so, what will I put in it!?

That is such a cute idea. I have two little boys, who are ALL ABOUT Marvel superheroes, so a basket like this would go over big!

Thanks. I hope I will be able to remember what to buy for girls once I have a granddaughter.

Oh, yes there are so many more selections in the girls department than the boys! We used to dress our Grands for Easter also, until there got to be so many of them! Now we just spoil them at random times throughout the year.
How sweet that he wanted you to come live with them 🙂 They are so precious!
Making Easter baskets for the children has always been so much fun. Our grandson’s would love the Marvel ideas also.

Alli March 16, 2015 - 2:10 pm

We can’t help but spoil them, right? I don’t dare make their Easter baskets look the least bit girly. I have to make sure everything I get them is all boy, because they certainly are. 🙂

You are such an amazing grandmother! They are absolutely going to love their Marvel baskets! (and I agree – Easter sunday demands new clothes!)

Alli March 16, 2015 - 2:08 pm

I don’t know if it’s a southern thing, but I’ve always had to have a new outfit and shoes for Easter. Maybe it’s just an excuse to go shopping. We had a time trying to find the boys something they didn’t already own for Easter this year. Even our favorite boutiques were a big disappointment.

These are great baskets for any Marvel fan. I love that you made sure to get a little something with every hero on it.

Alli March 16, 2015 - 2:05 pm

Wow, you noticed the details. I’m usually the only one who cares about the details when it comes to the boys. 🙂 They just want to play with their new goodies.

I love these baskets and you can still make them your own. I know my daughter wants a Frozen basket so we are looking for those but she will make do because she loves any and all characters from Marvel to Disney to Nick and everything in between.

Reply
Alli March 16, 2015 - 2:04 pm

Disney has a line of FROZEN at Walmart, too. If I only had a grand daughter!

The youngest said I could have my own bedroom, but the middle child said I could have one couch and Poppy could have the other. 🙂

These are so adorable! I know my Hampton would love the Ninja Turtle basket! I love your “helpful hint” of buying things of different heights to make the basket look better. 🙂

Reply
Alli March 16, 2015 - 2:02 pm

Of course, the boys could care less about the differing heights. 🙂 But I will.

Awesome ideas for Easter! Your grandsons are going to love their Easter baskets! I love your idea of looking for non-Easter items in place of an Easter basket!

Reply
Alli March 16, 2015 - 2:01 pm

I think the youngest will love that pencil case. They all have nice baskets with their names on them (a gift from me several years ago) so these are kinda add ons and they can store things in the buckets once Easter is over.

I totally know what you mean, Ashley. My oldest grand is 10 (where did the time go?) and he thinks he’s too cool for lots of things, but he’ll like these, for sure.

Our Easter traditions are much more simple now that our kid is a little bit older. We still, however, join friends who have a BBQ and we watch the younger kids do the egg hunt.
The Easter baskets you have are amazing! It’s almost like Christmas. How cool that Marvel has a lot of things for kids during this holiday. 🙂

I am sure their parents will thank you too for not having all that candy! Walmart is a great place to find stuff to fill the basket. In fact, we were at the Easter isle the other day and my kids spotted the Disney line. Maybe I should do like you and get them the stuff they are each interested in!

We do themed Easter baskets as well. Only in a pinch will we buy the prefilled baskets. And you do look way too young to have grandkids!

These look so cute! I try to avoid candy and make the kids baskets out of things they can use instead of eat!

My son and I always wake up to baskets full of goodies from the hubs on Easter. Yes, I also get a basket full of goodies. 🙂 The hubs doesn’t get a basket but he certainly had his share of chocolates.

I’m loving your baskets, last year we didn’t do baskets instead we did a small gift for them both and an egg hunt! They loved it, but it just wasn’t the same! I definitely plan on doing baskets this Easter!

Hi Alli, I so enjoyed your post, bringing back memories of my own one son and buying his Easter outfit and his grandmas getting him mostly candies – but, we also did buy him a toy to help keep him busily occupied after church! Fun post of ideas!

Marvel is always a hit with the kiddies, and it’s certainly easy to get your hands on branded items for an Easter basket. My nephew really likes Iron Man. Our Easter tradition is scavenger egg hunts.

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to
be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
