Mom of 4 here…You better believe that holidays are a challenge under this roof! Finding goodies to stuff stockings or fill Easter baskets can be a challenge and as much as I LOVE some candy for myself I am A OK with not filling the kids baskets with it! Before you gasp in horror don’t worry..they do get candy! I just like to limit it to a few days worth…there’s only so many days I can take of Asher asking for candy for breakfast!
So long story short here’s my quick list of simple, non-edible basket fillers!
I’m starting with my favorite. The Jesus Storybook Bible is the best children’s bible out there! I’m all for the Easter bunny but lets face it Easter is about THIS GUY! My kids love this bible and so do I! We’ve read ours so much that it’s actually wearing away…time to get a new one! Thankfully this hardcover book is under $10! Can’t beat that!
Can you ever have enough sidewalk chalk? My kids would answer no…but maybe that’s because they used an entire package yesterday to color every rock lining the side of the driveway. Anything that keeps them busy and outside is a win in my book!
I will admit, I have a love hate relationship with this stuff but my kids love it so I guess I’m stuck with it!
Hello things I’m going to have to buy in a month anyway! Goggles, Sunglasses, Bathing Suits and Flip-Flops are all summer must haves..might as well fill that basket with them!
Indoor bubbles and outdoor bubbles…you can never get enough bubbles!
And last but not least…it’s not Easter unless mom makes you wear a pair of bunny ears! (My sweet Asher when he was a baby….**tears** where did the time go!?)
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Easter! If you’re looking for a place to celebrate come check out Regeneration Church in Exeter! We’ll be at the Exeter Town Hall for worship on Sunday morning! You can see the details here!
