I'm a little disappointed that Easter is so late this year. (April 24th) It's one of my favorite holidays and a sign Spring is for sure coming!
Usually now I'm buying stuff for baskets and making my scavenger hunt cards, etc...
So, what do you do for Easter?
Do you do baskets?
Always baskets or something else?
How much do you spend on a basket and the fillings?
Do you buy a pre-made or stuff one yourself?
Do you hide the baskets?
Do you do baskets? Yes
Always baskets or something else? Anything that can be useful, backpack, bin, bucket, etc.. One year, Kayla's was a wagon.
How much do you spend on a basket and the fillings? I'm ashamed to admit this because DH thinks it's insane but it's just how I grew up... I spend about $100-$150 on each basket.
Do you buy a pre-made or stuff one yourself? Always make them myself.
Hide eggs? Yes
Color eggs? Yes
Do you hide the baskets? Yes, accordingly for age. I do a scavenger hunt for the girls. Each girl wakes up to find an egg by their bedroom door with their first clue. Then they go through the house, yard (weather permitting) to find their clues and ending with their basket.
Fancy clothes? Usually
Big dinner? Yes We always have a big get together with DH's family at a hall and then my family has dinner together later. I think I'll do Easter at my house this year.
Kayla's b-day is the 28th so I might just combine the family get together with Easter.
We don't normally do anything but this is the first year Elise might get into it however we will be out of town at SIL's house so i am kinda off the hook but i will do baskets for all the kids when we get there
I'm actually excited that it's a little later because it gives me more things to keep busy with in April before baby comes the following month. So, what do you do for Easter? Church, Easter egg hunt, dinner Do you do baskets? I haven't, but my mom does for the boys Always baskets or something else? Sometimes just candy and a toy (from my parents - I hate buying more crap, my kids have plenty of toys as it is) How much do you spend on a basket and the fillings? Nothing Do you buy a pre-made or stuff one yourself? I would probably buy a basket and fill it myself Hide eggs? You bet! Color eggs? Yep Do you hide the baskets? Nope, they are just given to the boys Fancy clothes? Sometimes I suppose. If I had a girl I'd be all over dressing them up. There are so many cute Easter dresses. Big dinner? Yes! Yum!
We do a small basket, color eggs, and a teeny egg hunt. And that it is.
My Aunt will get each of the kids a little easter bag chock filled with chocolates, small toys, and an outfit each. It was a tradition Nana had, that she took over.
My Mom claims she's going to disown me each and every year since I moved out, as I don't do dinner, don't go anywhere for dinner, don't dress up. Nothing.
