So Easter is like, what a week away? Yesterday I begged the hubs to dig out the Easter box from the basement, which by the way has a total of three decorations. I can never seem to find cute Jesus based decorations, and I don't dig the Easter Bunny. I always tell my self I am going to get more decorations after Easter when everything goes on clearance, but atlas I never do.
Last year I got plastic buns (#3) from The Dollar Tree to use as Easter baskets. I let the kids decorate the bins with stickers, they loved it so much they asked to do it again this year. The best a part about using bins, is that you can keep them for storage afterwards.
Mostly each year I put the same items in their baskets: markers, chalk, the classic chocolate bunny, books, bubble gum, candy, and of course bubbles. We seem to go through bubble like crazy, and by "go through" I mean spill.
This year I want to try the resurrection eggs with the kiddos, and last year we "planted" jellybeans in the ground and overnight they "magically" grew into suckers..they got a kick out of that!
