Do you do them? We still have not really decided. We do not celebrate Easter. We want to do the same idea, but for Spring Equinox.
Have you gotten your kids yet? No. I saw one today I really liked though, just not sure.
What do you put in them? No idea!

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy

We do them, I haven't got anything yet, aside from the baskets which they've had the same ones for years. My plan is some candy, a new book for each and then my older two will get a microsoft points card and the younger two are getting a sand and water table and accessories for that.

We do them.

I bought my oldest a Union Jack backpack, my DS-8 a video game and controller and my DD-6 some girly Lego's.

I haven't done the baskets yet, just the toys. I will get a little candy and and we will color eggs. The smell of vinegar makes me sick so I am always looking for different ways to color our eggs. Last year we used kool-aid water but the color wears off of the eggs pretty quick.

I also don't use regular baskets. I use something they can reuse for storage.

yes we do them,
I had hers ready and done before her birthday lol
we did a bucket instead of basket, but I did get her a 1$ basket to collect eggs in and also as a photo prop.
she's getting , a purse,coloring book, dvd, maracas, book, necklace, socks, a music box egg that my mom got her that's really pretty, some bracelets, uhmm maybe there's one or two other little things but I can't remember, I know I put small stuff in some eggs ..
we'll dye eggs for the first time that weekend, and do some Easter crafts and I got the Peter Cotton tail movie a few days ago and she LOVES it, I'm gonna let her hunt eggs in the yard and I have a letter from the "Easter Bunny" I'm gonna print out for her.

Do you do them? Yep, this will be our first year!
Have you gotten your kids yet? Yes, it's the basket she's in down in my siggy. I wanted to make a personalized basket liner but didn't get to that. Maybe by next year.
What do you put in them? I got her a swimsuit, coverup, a pool floatie (can you tell I'm ready for summer?!), book, a pocket bib, and amber teething necklace.

We don't make up baskets but the kids use baskets in their hunt. Not sure what EB is bringing this year.

We do. For my older kids we never used a basket though. It was always some type of container. We have done those basket things people use for storage on those cube shelves, we did small garbage cans they could use for their rooms another time, and other various containers that would have a use. We always stick with a theme for them. One year it was outdoor toys and they all got a tennis racket and tennis balls. Another year they all got new swimsuits and sunglasses. Another year they all got a random toy they wanted. Another year they all got something to decorate their room with.

This is the first year we are not doing baskets for the older kids, they are 10, 14, and 16. They don't believe in the bunny anymore. We are doing one for my 1 year old. I bought an actual basket that we can use for years with him. He is getting a box of teddy grahams because he is too young for candy, a book, and a few wooden puzzles.

We did dye eggs, but I am hiding plastic ones. My little one will get crackers and stuff in his eggs. My older kids will get minis of their favorite candies.

We do them to but dont use a basket. This year we used sand pails (something they can get a lot of use out of etc) We put some stamps and pencils in the big kids buckets with a shovel to go along with the pail. Oldest DD got some bracelets and DS got two water cloth things that open up in the bathtub. Baby DD got some new socks, piggy bank and a rubber duck with a shovel as well for her pail. No candy here
