MP would like to welcome our newest sponsor, the Family Ice Center in Falmouth, to Cute Potato! She recently had the pleasure of chatting with Cumberland-based dad, Josh Brainerd, who manages the ice skating arena. Like most parents, Josh recognizes the importance of an affordable, accessible, and clean recreation center. During his two years as manager, he’s worked hard to make the Family Ice Center a fun destination for kids and parents.

Last year, MP was flipping through the pages of the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and a sweet Easter tree caught her eye. Inspired, MP decided to try creating a similar tree with the kids.

Poor CP#1 had a tooth pulled and a stomach bug last week, which means the Cute Potato ladies were in the house for 5 days straight. CP#1 didn’t have energy for much activity other than napping and watching marathons of Good Luck Charlie. By week’s end, she still didn’t feel 100%, and MP was getting a bad case of cabin fever.

On Saturday, Dad Potato took over nursing duty, so CP#2 and MP could get out for a few hours. We decided on a short trip to Mackworth Island in Falmouth. The walk couldn’t have been more restorative. MP swears she could smell Spring in the air: that marvelous, earthy scent packed with promise. And she’d forgotten how beautiful Mackworth Island can be this time of year.

We have a few go-to places to find great gifts for kids, and Rainbow Toys is one of them. Nestled among the Shops at Falmouth Village, the inviting toyshop is filled with award-winning games, crafts, children’s books and developmental toys for infants (to name a few). CP#2 regularly visits to browse their incredible selection of LEGO and Playmobil toys.

There remains a chill in the air, but that hasn’t stopped the team from enjoying the onset of spring. Not long ago, we visited the Gilsland Farm Audubon Center in Falmouth, first to buy honey from the nature store and then to take a family adventure walk.

The trails at Gilsland Farm are wonderfully manageable for little ones. CP#1 and #2 love running up the bluffs to look at the water below. And they’re especially enamored with Wendy Klemperer’s dramatic, steel wildlife sculptures. Along the trail we met wolves, elk, fox and mountain lions.

Looking for a special Easter basket? Team Cute Potato has done some scouting around for the big day, and we hope these ideas will provide inspiration:

We love these little baskets from Byrne & Carlson Chocolatier in Kittery. They’re just the right size for baby, and they can be purchased ready made with a small chocolate bunny and solid chocolate eggs inside.

There are many beautiful baskets at garden stores and nurseries. Check out these natural, twig baskets from Allen, Sterling & Lothrop in Falmouth:

Searching for something out of the ordinary? We spotted this cherry picking basket at Gurley Antiques Gallery in Yarmouth, as well as some vintage Easter cards and papers.

We found these adorable, gingham-lined baskets at our local Home Goods store:

Visit tomorrow, and we’ll have ideas for fun fillers. Happy spring time shopping, everyone!
