is a minature Radio Flyer wagon.  I filled it with what they call grass now and put a pink and green bunny, some little rubber ducks and a bunny ear headband in it.  I will throw in some fake easter eggs before Sunday!  Forgot the bottle of bubbles.  DD bought some the other day but they were plastic bubbles and leave a real sticky mess on everything.  So, today I got the real thing.  GD was fascinated with them though.

FAFE,

Have you tried the sugar bubbles from Gymboree? I love them and last a LONG time (sometimes a few hours, lol). They are fun to play with.

Radio Flyer...I love it! That's my kind of basket. Festive, original AND useful.

We bought the wagons years ago.  One for each of our children's child(ren).  OS has a son who got his on his first Christmas.  MS has never married, so I don't know when he'll get his.  GD (DD) will get hers for Easter.  I love doing "strange" things.  I will definitely look for those bubbles!

I did the little radio flyer wagon on our youngest grandson's first Easter. I'll try to scan a photo tomorrow and show everyone. I loved doing Easter with the children.
This year I found the cutest little wood baskets. I painted the children's name on one side and then what they are into for the moment on the other. I'll try to post a photo of the one I did today tomorrow too. I put his name on one side and Thomas the train on the other. It turned out so cute ! I also have one with a T-Rex,Race Car and flowers. LOL
I have the plastic eggs ready to fill with candy for the egg hunts. There is always several before we finally eat dinner. Then some afterwards too. Then I have 5 large silver and Gold Eggs that will be a prize egg for each child. I tell a Parent where it is so each child will get a prize egg with a small toy and 5 dollars in it.
The best part of any holiday is children isn't it?

I forgot to mention what I put in the baskets. Sorry.
Crayola is making colored bubbles now so I got them,chocolate bunnies of course,kisses, then a toy for each child. What they like and for their ages. We will have boiled eggs to eat just plastic to hunt.
My husband always tells the children a bible story on the front porch while they eat some of what they find, I'm really excited and looking forward to it!
I hope we all have a blessed and happy Easter!

I'm sorry, I don't mean to burst your bubble, Kennedy, but you might want to reconsider the bubbles.  I looked them up on Amazon the other day.  They have a terrible rating & apparently leave stains.

I forgot to mention that I had sent my GS his Easter package and he should have gotten it yesterday.  His "basket" included a couple of stretchy spiders, plastic eggs filled with candy,  a travelling toothbrush thingy (has a top for the toothbrush (Ingredible Hulk) - he is going to Japan for a month and thought this would be ok.  A sporty looking shirt, a basketball that when you put it into water makes a towel.  Some kind of game.  Sounds werid, but I try to do different things from what the parents do.

I heard the same thing on the news that they leave stains.  :-\ Why make them then, right?

Kennedy

Wow, Thank you,thank you, and THANK YOU! I didn't know that and I looked them up after reading what you said, So those are being returned. Mommy and Daddy will not be happy with Grandma if I stain up their Easter clothes.
I'm finding you ladies so helpful. Thank you again. I am so proud I said something about them.  :o

I was hoping you hadn't already wrapped it in cellophane...

"burst your bubble,"  LOL...nice play on words!

Pen

There are so many cool things to put in Easter baskets that aren't sugary, not that my kids were completely deprived of sweets, I just didn't like the side effects of a total sugar binge or the tantrum that resulted from being kept from the goodies. I always appreciated gifts for the kids that encouraged creativity and curiosity, such as art supplies, musical instruments & CDs, or magnifying glasses, bug houses or vegetable/flower seeds. What can I say, I had geeky kids. Museum gift shops were the bomb!

One can only use so many stuffed bunnies, LOL. The colorful bubbles sound like fun; perhaps they could be used when the children aren't in their Easter best?
