A few years ago, I challenged myself to make my children’s Easter baskets for less than $10.00 with “useful” items. I did this because I didn’t like the way those cheap baskets under $10.00 looked at the store. Most of these items I found within the dollar section or dollar store. Since I was filling several baskets while I was at the store I looked for items that had multiple things I could split up.
The items in the Homemade Toddler Easter Basket are: Disney Paint Book, Bible Coloring Book, Bat/Ball, 2 mini Sesame Street Books, Sidewalk Chalk, Crayons, Bubbles, Memory Card Game, Giant Lollipop, Gummy Lifesavers and 3 eggs with candy.
The items in the Homemade School Aged Easter basket are: Glider, Sketch Paper, Disney Paint Book, Crayons, Card Game, Sidewalk Chalk, Bubbles, Crayons, Giant Lollipop, Gummy Lifesavers and 3 eggs filled with candy. (I made two identical ones since I have twins)
The Homemade Teen Easter Basket was a beauty basket. Enclosed is a bath pillow, foot massager, hair turby towel, body scrubber, sleep mask, face scrubber, giant lollipop, gummy life savers, and 3 eggs filled with candy.
Rather than wasting money on cellophane wrap, I used clear garbage bags instead to wrap their baskets.
Overall I spent $36.00 for all 4 baskets. I didn’t put that much candy in their baskets because the Easter bunny hides eggs at our house and those are already filled with candy. I’d love to hear you ways you save on making Homemade Easter Baskets Ideas.
