Do you give the kids you watch a gift for Easter and all other holidays? This is the first time I've ever watched a child before so I really dont' know. The kid is sort of family my FIL was going to marry the baby's grandmother but decided she was nuts! What do I do here? By the way she's only 13 months!

Hi, I voted other, because for Christmas and birthdays I would get them something small but as for Easter I am not sure. I guess maybe I would make a little something with the extra candy I had from making my kids baskets and wait until they were picked up to give it to them, But I  dont think I would go out and buy something special for Easter. I hope this helps.

When I babysat on a regular basis I gave my kids a small goodie bag.  Nothing big.  Something similar to what I would give as a goodie bag for a birthday party.  But it is certainly not required.  If you don't have the money just skip it.

I wouldn't unless I know the family is not off very well and know that the kids wouldn't be getting a basket from anybody else in the family.  Each holiday adds up very quickly.  You could do a craft with them and make & decorate a basket with them then add some candies and eggs.
