Moms, Easter is coming up and we’re all looking for what to put in Easter baskets for our kids that’s not just the usual candy or junk.
One mom asked: What are you putting in your kids’ Easter baskets that aren’t just junk but not expensive? Mine are ages 5 (boy) and 7 (girl) and I need ideas.

Swim stuff like goggles or blow-up toys for the pool. We always do this year’s swim stuff in the basket. It’s stuff I would get anyway. I do a swimsuit, a small beach towel, and maybe a little water toy then of course just a couple of little treats. (This way it’s not just a bunch of trinkets I’m dying to get rid of the next day lol)

We’re going on a family vacation to Hawaii in May so they’re both getting stuff for the trip. Their “basket” is a new backpack for the trip. They’re each getting 2 new swimsuits, sandals, my daughter is getting a cute hat, and they’re each getting a couple of books, and a little candy treat. Oh, and the movie Ferdinand to watch on the long plane ride.
