 I got the boys each - a pair of boxers, fun twisty straws, an activity book, a pack of M&Ms, a small Reeses PB bunny, a small pack of swedish fish, a spiderman/iron man cup, and will throw a few jelly beans in the basket too.

Oh I like the butterfly nets!  Where did you get them?  I may attempt to run out tonight after dinner....I feel like they are lacking in stuff bc we don't do much candy....

All I have are chocolate bunnis so far- this year I'm at a complete loss as to what to get them!  I would get My Chemical Romance tickets for them...but hubby will be in New Mexico by then, and I don't want to risk a road trip to see the concert when we don't know anyone in Tx that could help us if the car broke down :(

It depends. I change it up often.

This year they all got a small stuffed animal. The older three got coloring books. The two older boys got little plastic cars that are made to play in the sand with and my daughter got glittery pencils and some lip gloss. Then candy of course.

- when he was a baby I put items he needed in the basket w/ little bit of chocolate...  wipes, diapers, bibs, wash clothes, out fits, gas drops, baby tylenol, fruit puffs, etc

- for girls (which I don't have) you could do play dress up clothes, plastic rings and jewelry, barbie dolls, play make up kits, lip gloss, dvd, hair bows and ties, etc...
