In the past we’re bought our girls some big/expensive Easter presents. Not because we felt we had to, but because we were going to buy them anyways and just waited until Easter to give them it, plus Easter marks spring, outside weather. This year we are going light on our bank account but still getting things for outside.
Easter Baskets that Don’t Break the Bank

First I’ll say that I was very disappointed in out local dollar store this year. They had nothing out when I went shopping. And for things like buckets and shovels I’d rather get them there so I’m not spending a fortune on something that is going to get stepped on and broken or for the dog to chew.
Thankfully Walmart and Amazon had a great selection of what I wanted.
- chalk – color core and glitter!
- jump rope
- a few candies
- Easter pads of paper
- a bunny straw
- cute little bunny ears – for a picture on Easter morning of course
Instead of the usual flashy Easter baskets I bought (at the dollar store) these plastic totes. They are reusable after Easter. Plus, I figure that they will come in handy on vacation for storage in the Durango, for extra toy storage in their rooms, or where ever else we need them.
