Are you looking for an Easter Basket to make that is easy? I love going for themed baskets because once I basically decide on a direction I am going, it becomes much easier to fill the basket. Remembering the age of the child that you are making the Easter basket for is very important.
TIP: If you are a grandparent, remember that kids grow quickly. What they liked last year may not fit their style or their body this year! Give parents a call to see what the latest hobbies and interests are. Then you will be sure to come up with an Easter basket to make just for them.
Get inspired for filling your Easter Basket when you use these ideas. As you can see, the sky is the limit! I got some great ideas and feedback from the Faithful Provisions Facebook readers, and will try to include many of them here. As always, I would love your input!
