Good morning!!

What is everyone putting in their 7 year and 10 year girls easter baskets this year? Obviously some candy but I always like to put things in that my kids can use or something fun they can do. Thanks!!

I always give them fun outdoor things for the spring like bubbles, chalk, kites, balls, sunglasses, bug catchers, sand toys, etc. I also give them one toy that they've been asking for and didn't get for Xmas.

At 5 Below they had peeps themed kinetic sand. That's about it. I can't stand all that junk so it's really just candy.

Re: Easter Baskets

I don't have a girl but my almost 11 year old will get (besides candy and money) modeling clay, or book or two, and probably a new bathing suit and goggles.

I don't go crazy because his birthday is early April. Yeah the kid probably gets screwed because of timing lol.

I usually get them outdoor stuff and
Something they want since their birthdays are in the winter.

I have 7 year old boy and 10 year old girl. I will most likely be getting them both fidget toys cause that’s what’s in right now and they keep bugging me for them.

I just ordered pool floats from Amazon that I will put in their baskets, along with the usual 15 pounds of candy ...

Outdoor stuff is a great idea, thanks everyone! I hate all the junk. I honestly waste so much money on candy because my kids will only eat a few pieces and then forget about it! So I will do a chocolate bunny and then fill with other stuff.

Along with the regular candy, chalk bubbles etc. I get things they need. One year I got new bathing suits, a new baseball mitt since my son is starting baseball in April. Last year a basketball. I’m going to buy it anyway lol so I just put it in the baskets. Oh also, I did the butterflies and ladybug kits. They love those too.

My kids are younger but we make a little basket for my niece who is 7. I went to 5 Below and they had some great stuff- I got some chalk, the big bubble wands, and a kite- each $1!
