  • Go to the Dollar store. It's the cheapest you will find. Good will? They dont sell baskets, plastic grass and hollow eggs do they?

  • Dollar Store is cheaper than Goodwill and they have a great selection for kids. You can do it. Go take a look and get creative.

  • My daughter's preschool made the CUTEST easter baskets out of empty gallon water (or milk) containers. I would not have spent $15 on a basket if I had seen these first! If your interested, message me with your email and I will forward you a pic of them!

  • Do you have the baskets? If not walmart has plastic buckets for each and they are $1. So thats $5. You can do to dollar general if you have one and pick up plastic eggs, you get 12 for $1. so pick up 3, thats $3. Thats 7 eggs per basket. Fill them with jelly beans (around $2). Now youre up to $10. Buy them each a chocolate bunny, they are $1 at dollar general or walmart ($5 more), now your up to $15. Dollar tree has $1 toys like jump ropes you can get them one $1 toy each, thats $20. Get them two each and thats $25. The fake grass for it around $5. Thats $30 and you have $10 left over.

  • Dollar Tree and maybe Good Will

  • $1 baskets no grass, $1 chocolate bunnies, $1 color book, $1 bottle of bubbles or giant bubble wands, $5 box of sidewalk chalk split up 5 ways and put in ziplock baggies...that's $25, spend the rest on candy. You can get all of that for that price at walmart.
