Looking for easy Easter Egg Basket ideas to quickly put together a great gift?
As I have stated before, I am not crafty. That’s why I love Pinterest. It’s a treasure trove of ideas. I can always find something quick or easy or both. Making each of my kids an Easter Egg basket is no exception.
Most Easter Egg Baskets include dyed eggs, candy, toys, and a cushiony-filler such as green plastic grass.
You don’t have to spend $10-20 (or more) on a basket that includes gimmicky toys and excessive amounts of candy. Rather, I would suggest:
- reusable wooden or fabric basket
- green plastic grass or shredded green paper
- plastic eggs that you refill each year
Make an event out of dying eggs with your kids.

The Real Story Behind Easter
Although I love the nostalgia it creates for me and the family fun that surround both Easter and Christmas, I try really hard to tell the true meaning behind these days to my kids.
Easter is the most important celebration in Christianity, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It occurs between March 21 and April 25, on the first Sunday after the first full moon.
Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice that makes my freedom possible.
