Easter is just around the corner and it is time to start looking out for easy Easter Basket ideas! It is always hard to find usable easter basket ideas that are not only candy. I like to start looking early and save as much as possible.
While I love the holiday, I hate spending lots of money on stuff for the easter baskets that gets used up in 1 afternoon. Because we live on such a fixed budget while we are trying to pay off our debt, I like to put things into our Easter baskets that can be used for a while and will keep their interest.
It is also important that you be sure you teach your kids the real reason for the season and not just about the Easter bunny. We wouldn’t have any celebration without the resurrection of christ, so I always make sure to include something that will remind them of the season. Sometimes I look for stealth educational items as well. My kids never know they are learning as they play games. Ha, ha!
