Trying to fix up Easter baskets for my girls ages 8 and 10

it is hard because they both love stuffed animals and books but then they start to differ. i am trying to make these simple and inexpensive. I know my oldest loves lip gloss youngest shys away from it. how can i make it fair and not be costly either. i know i will put a small chocolate bunny in each to. but i am at a loss.

  • yah, at that age they wont care about cost, only the number and size of things! As long as they have the same chocolates or candy, they wont notice!!

  • Your idea of fair may not be the kid's idea of fair. Try the same # of things in each even if one is more expensive. Jelly Beans, chocolate, plastic eggs with hair tie's or plastic jewelery. a dollar store stuffed animal or 2.

  • They have travel size puzzles, games, books, and what-not at places like walmart and Meijer.
    You can also go to the dollar store and get their favorite treats. Maybe small outdoor toys like sidewalk chalk.
    You can get inexpensive jump ropes.
    You can also get one outdoor game (found in the sporting goods section of Walmart) that they can share.
    Hair accessories
    Homemade baked goods like cookies
