Easter with older kids

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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?

My kids are 11, 14, and 17. I will continue to get them Easter baskets until they have a family of their own. My youngest has a mini pillow pet for hers, plus a couple of zipper bracelets, and some new nail polish and sunglasses. 

My 14 yo is getting a poster, and a gift card for points on his PS3 account. 

My oldest is getting some nail polish, a cute scarf, and some Japanese candy and soda she likes. 


They will all have some candy in there, too. 

This is the first year I won't be doing an egg hunt, which they were not happy about. If we were having younger kids over, I totally would, but were not.

My kids are still young... But when I was older my parents didnt do anything. we just had the usual  nice easter dinner together, and when me & mom where at the grocery store we would get some easter candy to enjoy...

My MIL still fixes me & DH a small goodie bag of candy lol :) and one year I just found out I was pregnant so I got a nice basket of prenatal vitamins & a pregnancy book...

I say do a goodie bag. Easter doesnt always = baskets.... Give them a small gift like a $25 itunes gift card or a new tshirt, sunglasses etc...

They get an easter basket with some candy and a Bible (we don't do toys and presents for Easter), then we go to church, after we have a nice Easter lunch with our friends and they help us hide eggs for the little kids.
