Easter is a little over a month away and I started to plan for the holiday this weekend. You're probably thinking, "we just got through Valentine's Day and now you want to talk about Easter baskets."
Let me continue. We popped into Target over the weekend and my cart just happened to swing by the Valentine's Day clearance section. As of Sunday, their V-Day clearance was 50% - 70% off. Slyly, I placed a few items in our cart without the girls noticing. The packaging screams Valentine's day, but I'll remove it, separate the lip gloss and nail polish and put them in plastic Easter eggs. I'm trying to limit the candy.
Between now and Easter, I'll take advantage of the 40-50% off coupons that Michael's and A.C. Moore offer for art and craft supplies for the baskets.
So yes, I am planning ahead of time, but I don't want a lot of candy in their baskets and I also don't want to spend a fortune.
What non-candy gifts does the Easter bunny put in your kids' baskets? Let us know in the comments.
