  • I haven't bought anything yet but I think they will each be getting a couple of books and some bubbles, maybe a coloring book or a color wonder set of some sort. Also some candy. Nothing major.

  • I'm the grandma so I get to do things I didn't do as a mother. My 17 mo grandson needs to gain weight because of a medical condition and can eat bad stuff along with all the good stuff he likes and eats.

    He will be able to hunt for eggs this year. There will be some candy. He may get some chocolate so I probably won't get that. He likes balloons, not eco friendly but fun. The dollar store has plastic baskets you can use over that you can tie balloons to. I did that for Valentines day.

    A big ball for throwing in the pool. Lots of little balls that float. We live in AZ and its awhile before the water will be warm but he likes to throw stuff in. Maybe I can find egg size balls I can hide and he can find them and put them in a basket.

    We will take him out to eat at a buffet. We'll try to pick a time when they are less busy.

  • I always get all the kids a new summer outfit and a book. Then I get them each a different kind of candy to teach them to share with each other.

  • Cool Idea ZaTa. I might use that one. My kids are 20 months and 6 months so for my littleist one will probably get a few teething rings, she's too little for anything else. My 20 month old will probably get a coloring book and crayons, a few Baby snacks and a couple chocolates.

  • 2 Veggie Tales movies, 2 Handy Manny cars (his FAVORITE!) An Easter Outfit for the day and some chocolate eggs, mini ones inside of plastic eggs for him to hunt!

  • we are scaling back this year! we usually have way too much chocolate! we will dye eggs, and have an easter egg hunt. i think we will do pads of paper, bath tub crayons, bubbles, some candy and chocolate probably nothing else. last year the kids got nintendo ds games, and i think that was too much.
