What do you do??

When m kids were younger I used to do baskets and easter eggs but just felt it was a waste of money. My kids always got the most candy and baskets be thrown every where it was a mess! So now what?

I dunno, not there yet. My mom used to get us one big item. Like... the last easter I can remember... I was 13. We each got a bean bag, and some candy, mostly the ones we liked. I loved the chocolate eggs, and my sisters loved the peeps. I colored eggs, but it was more like I wanted to make deviled eggs.... hehehehe That was it.

I'm not doing baskets but I am doing sand pails.. a small fanny pack for the parks to hold their gift cards cell phones etc and the lanyards with trading pins that I got on ebay. I bought minimal candy because we wind up throwing it out anyway.

Mine are 11 and 14,both girls. I buy pretty little baskets that can be used for other things or a nice bag. I buy clothes, makeup, movies and candy to put in their baskets.

Im 22 and my mom still gets me a basket. Usually some candy, a movie, gift cards, etc. When i was 20 i got a coloring book. Lol. I was thrilled. Last year i got a puzzle instead. Its one of my hobbies.
