Easter Baskets. Who doesn't love easter baskets with the pre made goodies wrapped so beautifully and tucked into an adorable brightly colored basket? Okay, so I'm really raising my hand over here, I don't. I'm not one to rush to the store and spend $20 on a basket filled with candy and toys that don't fit my kids or fit Easter. I like cute little bunnies but not for Easter. I like decorating for Spring but I choose to be very intentional at Easter to leave bunnies hopping down the bunny trail and focus on lambs which point us to Christ.
Very few easter baskets fit this criteria so I've decided to make my own. Last year I went to Hobby Lobby and was able to purchase everything half off a few weeks before Easter. The first thing you have to do if your making your own goodie basket is to pick out your basket. Once you've found your adorable basket then pick out your stuff. Make sure you actually put it in your basket so you don't purchase too much. Also, keep dibs on the amount your spending so your not surprised in the checkout line.
In my baskets I want to also include some kind of lamb a book which focuses on Christ and just a few little fun toys.
Do you make your own Easter Baskets for your kids?
