Will you be doing Easter baskets for your kiddos this year? If so, what will go in them?

I just bought the boys each a stuffed puppy with bunny ears, and am planning on putting a pack of binkies in Jamison's basket, and something either spiderman or star wars (probably legos) in Josiah's basket. We will do a small easter egg hunt in our backyard.

YES!!!!! I absolutely love making up the kids Easter baskets. All will have candy except Dillon and probably some makeup or a little fashion accessory for Megan, Summer is going to get a big chocolate bunny (she loves chocolate), Sammie will get a book, Ryan will get a car, and Dillon will get some small toys of some sort.

I usually let the kids dye eggs even though we typically don't have an egg hunt because our house and yard just isn't big enough.

I'm picking them up some blue and pink bunny ears and I am doing a picture at the park with them all in the ears.

Yes yes, the Easter basket is a big deal around here!! We hide my dsd every year, and make it harder and harder every year, it's fun

She'll get candy, a book, a new swim suit and new flip flops

I'm not sure what we'll do for Jett yet, but I'll think of something. I guess he'll need a swim suit too!! hehehe

Baskets for the older 2. Probably candy, books and some sort of toy for my 5 yr old and art stuff for my 11 yr old daughter. She loves to draw! Avrey will get some kind of stuffed bunny, it's what we did for the other 2 on their first Easter.

We will have some little candies in baskets for the kids. Some chocolate eggs, jelly beans, and peeps chicks. Other than that, I have no idea. Esther won't have a basket this year.

I just never got into doing it since we didn't do it growing up. In the US, our church always had an egghunt for the kids. Don't know if they do that here.

Neither of us is really into Easter and we typically do nothing for it each year, but.... I did purchase Scarlett 3 books to put into her baskety. I'm currently debating whether I should spend the money on a nice basket from Pottery Barn Kids or figure something else out.

I'm probably not going to do an Easter basket for Jayden since he will not know. Maybe next year.

Oh yes, especially with an older dd. Meghan's will have the stuff she needs, mylicon, gripe water, some small toys, books, etc. MB gets usually a dvd, swimsuit, books. She's allergic to nuts, so that limits the candy dramatically.

I got Ares' a few toys and some cute finger puppets for his basket. They were already approved by him Haha.

I will also be taking him to get Easter pics done. My friend is a photographer and always gives me great deals. I'll probably jump in a few of them because I need more pics of the two of us.

I probably wouldn't have done a basket for Jamison this year if it weren't for the fact that Josiah will EXPECT that both of them get a basket! The joy of having two children

I'm not doing a easter basket for Hunter since he doens't know whats going on anyways. But for Ava it's going to be a minnie mouse theme since she LOVES Minnie. I found at walgreens a minnie basket, then they have a bunch of minnie stuff like bubbles, glow sticks, chalk, etc. We don't put any candy or food in there b/c she'll probably get enough from grandparents.

We do baskets for the girls (my step daughters) we bought the premade baskets once and I will never do it again, there is close to nothing in there for the price! So we make them, usually bubbles with eggs filled with candy, some sandals, glow sticks just little things they enjoy
