    As for treats one poster said it nicely fruit roll-ups raisins, goldfish, my gs loves those, and they come in cinnamom and cheese and plain flavors now... fresh fruit too is nice and if he is allowed some specialtiy easter sugar cookies...

  • I don't put any candy in my sons baskets every year either! I sell Avon and Usborne ( my websites are and ) and do baskets for all the kids in my family and they're huge hits and really inexpensive too. I do baskets for my sons cousin with one book, one disney bath time body paint from Avon (they're only 99 cents and are a huge hit with the kids one and up!) a disney lip balm (.69!) and an Avon Spring Time Hand Lotion (hes prob too young for the lotion) and I put them all in the Easter Gift Bag from my Avon site. For my sons I did a little more and added in several more books from Usborne and added in a Cars Hooded Bath Towel from Avon. Hope those ideas help! Practical things too that kids will use for a long time and not drop in one day like they would a stuffed animal or candy! Good luck and Happy Easter!

  • always put in a cool toothbrush and toothpaste -they need it after the candy:-) so this is a tradition at my house. I also always give them a new outfit for summer and a kite so we can go out and fly them. I like traditions so they get some of the exact same thing every year like bubbles and choc easter bunny and then I like to add in a few fun things. You can get great cheap stuff at Hobby Lobby in the birthday section (lost of little stuff for a quarter or so. I also get things at the dollar store and the dollar bins at Target. This year, I am giving two of the three kids a DS because we only have one and they all three want to play it (ages 2,4. and 6). I know this is expensive but we are going on vacation and I'd like them to have them to play in the car for the long drive.
