Just curious

What everyones putting in the kiddos Easter baskets this year?

I'm thinking a small lego set, and a book or two along with the usual chocolate bunny and some other small goodies for my 2 boys.

Do you go all out for Easter baskets or keep it simple?

I don't do a basket anymore.  DD is 12, so I buy something fun for Easter.

My daughter will be 17 months so I'm going to put a little chocolate bunny, crayons and coloring books, and a stuffed bunny. My son will be 5 months so I'm going to give him a little stuffed bunny and a chewable book

 That's exactly what I did for my boys at those ages too! Now both my boys are addicted to legos right now lol so they are gonna get a small set of those.

I just realized it was at the end of this month this year lol! I was just in Target and it got me thinking, we have cut out a lot of candy and sweets this year too. I'd much rather do a toy, movie, craft, ect instead of a bunch of junk candy.

I started buying we Easter went on clearance last year! Neither she or I really like candy. So she's getting toys, fruits, and some home made choc covered strawberries.

It's her first Easter Basket. Got some spring themed books, egg shape chalk set, coloring stuff. And I'm still looking for ideas.

My littlest will get a pushing and a teething ring..

Dd is 13 and we still do Easter baskets.  She's never been into candy.  A couple years ago I figured out that she wanted a bunch of snacks for her lunches, you know the stuff I'll never buy.  Lol. So now I fill a basket with some junk food.  She eats one or two a week and they last forever.

I really don't know yet. I know for my 13month old I'll get a sippy cup and some toddler treats. Maybe a book or 2 for my 6 and 7yo and a bunny and some candy. Barbie outfit for my 7yo and a summer outfit.
