Kids for Easter and how old are they? My kids are all older now ages 11,13,15,17 and they are getting money and a huge chocolate bunny! I loved it when they were little and I could fill Easter baskets up and hide them! That was when they still believed in Eb! So what r u getting your kids and how old are they?

Candy, a few small toys, and maybe a DVD. They are 6, 8, and 22 months old.

I got my 5 year old a Ninja Turtles themed Easter basket. Not sure what to get for my 13 year old.

My kids are 4, 6, and 8. They're getting simple baskets with some candy and maybe a movie and a small toy.

A little back story first-we were really struggling financially most of last year and especially at Christmas due to me being off work for surgery and then later on getting rear ended badly enough that our almost new car was totalled.  So the kids barely got anything from 'Santa' or from us, and not much for their birthdays from us either.  We are in a much better position now and we are making up for Christmas a little bit with some pretty big Easter presents.   

We don't put much candy in the baskets because they get so much at egg hunts and from family, so they get a regular candy bar of their favorite type and some gum.  Otherwise they will each get a couple of books, a new toothbrush, some quarters in plastic eggs, a cute notebook and pencils, and a personal item-DD is getting some earrings, DS is getting a tony hawk sporty t-shirt like 'all' the boys are wearing in his grade.   Typically the baskets would be those smaller items plus one small larger gift (like a $15-$25 .toy or lego or whatever).  However the small larger gift for each of them is going to be much bigger this year...DS is getting a Nintendo 3DS and DD is getting two fairly large Lego Friends sets that she's been wanting for months. 

Bash away, I don't care.  Just glad to be able to afford to splurge a little this spring since we couldn't do much last year.  And to make sure they don't expect it all the time, there will be notes from the Easter Bunny in their baskets explaining that he was helping Santa out with some late Christmas presents this year and that normally he won't be bringing them that much (I'll figure out better wording, but you get the idea)

 My boys are 10 and 13.  They are getting tickets to a baseball game, and a few small silly items.  I may pick up something at the baseball game tonight for their Easter baskets if I remember.

For us we make the baskets with no candy (they get them in the eggs) and usually get bubbles, a book, this year my 3yr old is getting his first "bible" a movie and usually some outside toys just depends on the kids

They're 11 and almost 9, if I remember or think about it they'll probably get some candy.
