I was inspired to make a Gnomeo and Juliet garden-themed Easter basket this year since the release of “Sherlock Gnomes” is so close to Easter. It was super easy to put together since there seemed to be a bunch of “untraditional” colors of baskets and plastic eggs at the store plus I felt like the red and blue accents went with the gnomes’ colors. sherlock-gnomes-easter-basketI also made a fun “Gnomeo and Juliet” Tic-Tac-Toe Game to go in the Easter basket because honestly, I’m obsessed those little gnomes so much. sherlock-gnomes-tic-tac-toe-game-2All you need to do is print out your own copy here and grab 2 different colors of manipulatives, candy or any other small items and play with your favorite little partner. It’s also perfect for using in a classroom or with homeschool curriculum.gnomeo-and-juliet-tic-tac-toe-boardDo you have plans to go see Sherlock Gnomes when it hits theaters March 23rd?
