Easter is approaching
You might be thinking what to get for kids? Should it be a basket filled with candy? Should it include toys and candy? Luckily we have Pinterest to get some ideas which are great, but one can get overwhelmed with all the ideas and possibilities. Believe me, I would know. So I decided to put a list together of some ideas that I am thinking of doing this year for my kids. I know kids love their candy so I will include some candy as well as some items from the list below.
Easter Basket stuffers to consider besides candy
- Sidewalk Chalk
- Hair bands, bows, clips
- Craft Kit
