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 all the garbage included in those cheap baskets you’d find at the store. I wanted items my kids would love, that wouldn’t break the bank. So I headed to the dollar section and the dollar store.
Here’s a look at the final outcome:
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.
One of my favorite tips: looking for items that had multiple things I could split up. In this case, I chose a 3 pack of bubbles
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 another basket, just the same so the twins wouldn’t argue.
The Homemade Teen Girl Easter Basket was a beauty basket. Enclosed is a bath pillow, foot massager, hair turby towel, body scrubber, sleep mask, face scrubber, a giant lollipop, gummy lifesavers, 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 the ways you save on Homemade Easter Baskets
