Adventure Themed Easter Baskets :: Exploring the City with Your Kids

In the wake of Marie Kondo and the tidying up trend, one might be pulled towards an Easter experience that doesn’t leave your home replenished with toys and trinkets traditionally found in an Easter basket.  Experiences as gifts are becoming more popular and Easter provides the perfect opportunity to make some great memories through your children’s Easter Baskets. Houston and the Greater Houston areas have many great experiences and family outings that will leave everyone happy.

Baseball Experience

Constellation Field, in Sugar Land, is home to The Skeeters baseball team. Constellation Field boasts more than just an amazing game experience; it has play areas suitable for your kids as well. The Children’s Memorial Hermann Playland is just beyond the centerfield wall. Round your basket out with Skeeter’s baseball hats and shirts that can be ordered from their website. A day at the ballpark is sure to leave you with many great memories.

Houston Zoo Experience

The Houston Zoo is a jewel in our city. There are so many animals, exhibits, and interactive experiences that you could spend an entire day with your family exploring it all. In addition, the Houston Zoo has a program called the Family Nature Club where you can get outside and explore nature with your family in a hands-on way. Compliment your basket with animal crackers, animal shaped plastic eggs {found easily on Amazon}, and a book about zoo life.

Laura A. is a small town girl who loves her family fiercely. She married her high school sweetheart, Mark, in 2007 while they were finishing college at Stephen F. Austin State University. After graduating from SFA they landed in Katy. They have been blessed with two kiddos:: Amelia {2012} and Owen {2015}. Laura is a Jesus loving, bright lipstick wearing, food allergy advocating, lover of cooking ball of sass! If you see Laura rolling in her minivan and dancing like a lunatic it is because her playlist is cycling between Ludacris and Lauren Daigle. Because balance. If she is not with family or at work, you can almost always find her at Hobby Lobby or Target. If you even whisper the word craft in her presence she will approach you and ask to join you. Don’t be alarmed, this is totally normal. Crafting is her love language. She is convinced Jesus used a heavy hand of glitter when he designed her because she believes the world could always use a little extra sparkle. She has a suspicion that same bottle of glitter was totally used on Dolly Parton {they might be soul sisters}. Having a Dolly level wardrobe of sequins could be on her to do list. You can follow Laura on Instagram {@laurabethacosta} to peek into what all of this craziness looks like on the daily.
