With Easter only a few days away it’s time to be thinking about what to put in those Easter baskets for your kids. Our family doesn’t go crazy at Easter time. We’ve always tried to stick to the whatever fits in your basket rule , except for the year we got a trampoline. We obviously didn’t stick to the rule that time, but the screams of excitement from our kids made it all worth it!!
I also think it’s fun to think outside of the box a little and do something other than the traditional Easter Basket. It’s easy to just throw a bunch of candy in there and be done. I’ve never really thought much about doing anything different than using their traditional basket but there are actually a lot of fun and creative ideas out there! It might be fun to switch things up one year and surprise the kids!!
