Fantastic Beasts Easter Basket
Categories: Kid Friendly, Costume, Bags and Totes, Spring
Character driven Easter Baskets are really popular these days and allow you to cater to the recipients specific tastes. This fun Fantastic Beasts inspired Easter “basket” in the shape of Newt’s Suitcase will be LOVED by any Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts fan. An occamy is a magical creature that looks a bit like a cross between a snake and a bird, and their egg shells, we’re told, are made from solid silver. Occamy eggs play an important part in the Fantastic Beasts film, as Newt accidentally leaves one behind which leads to him meeting Jacob, one of the main characters. At the end of the book Newt leaves a suitcase full of occamy egg shells for Jacob to find to help him in starting his own bakery business.
And the best part is, you can put the whole thing together in less than 15 minutes.
I found the fun suitcase in the home decor section at Hobby Lobby for a good price on sale.
