Easter Basket Ideas

Blog #33:

Easter comes around, meaning Spring is here. The pastel colors, the flowers and spring cleaning.  I love it!  When it comes to making easter baskets I try to buy things my kids need and will use.  Of course I will still buy something they want.  I also try not to go overboard with the goodies, as my children also get 2 additional baskets from family members.

A good tip is to save the easter baskets, grass and eggs for next year instead of buying new ones every year.  I tend to get a few extra ones every year from the extra easter baskets the kids get from family members.  I then reuse these baskets when also making baskets for their cousins. I also don’t give in and purchase easter related gifts.  It honestly goes to waste.

I make 2 baskets for my boys and 2 baskets for the kids cousins.  I purchased everything from Amazon and Target. Here is what goes in each basket.

I don’t put as much chocolate and candy to the baskets as I do an Easter egg hunt for my boys the morning of.  As you can see these are things they will enjoy and not just wants but things they will use!

I hope this gives you a few ideas on getting things that what go to waste in your easter baskets!

Happy Easter!
