Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays, not only is it a great time for families to get together but it always feels like spring is finally here. I love putting together Easter basket for my children, but if your not careful the cost can get out of hand. My children are still pretty little (2 and 4) so I try and come up with ideas that are not candy based. Don’t get me wrong there’s going to be a little bit of chocolate but it’s nice to try and stay away from the sweets as much as possible. I’ve put together my favorite ideas for Easter baskets all available at your local Dollar Tree.
