A Tisket, A Tasket, Ideas About What to Put in a Basket

When it comes to treats for Cade and Gracyn's Easter Baskets each year,
I try to be creative!
I'm sure the kids would be satisfied with 4 lbs. of chocolate,
but truthfully they're not BIG chocolate eaters,
it's not ALL that good for their little bodies,
and I am left to deal with the 4 day post Easter chocolate high!
So instead of filling their baskets entirely with chocolate,
I came up with a few fun ideas to mix it up!

- a book
- a new Bible
- a little lotion
{Bath 'n Body Works sells their travel size for only a buck}
- shower gel
- bubble bath
- chap stick or chip chap as Gracyn says!
- sunglasses
- nail polish
- something handmade
{I got this done today}
- something for them to grow
{Lowe's sells little Sesame Street sets
which include seeds, a pot and soil for only $4}
- gardening gloves
- watering can
- flashlight
- bubbles
- a coin purse or wallet
- scented markers
- stickers
- coloring book
- spring cookie cutters and sprinkles,
for the little cook
- gum
- flip flops or crocs

I hope this gives you some new fresh ideas to choose from for
the Easter baskets you are going to fill this year!

I finished up my handmade gift for Gracyn's basket today!

posie clippy's a secret :)

I hope this motivates you to think outside the box this Easter!

What great ideas! It sounds like your kiddos will have great baskets. I will probably go shopping tomorrow for my kids goodies!

Great ideas. I found some cotton candy bubble gum at Target this year. Always fun to change things up a bit:)
