We don't do much for Easter other than a little candy and hiding eggs. I am so mad at these kids for not picking up their toys, toys are not going in the basket. I feel like they don't care about the toys they already have.

I was thinking a gift card to Barnes and Noble and/or Build a Bear, some candy and that's about it. Not little toys. I am forever throwing out junk that laying around the house.

I haven't really started on Easter yet but usually I try to give them something that they can use outdoors like rollerblades, skateboards, sidewalk chalk etc.

We do the same as Krista...normally something outside. Last year it was bicycles. This year no clue....possibly new clothes because Christian has NO shorts for this year yet.

I'm not sure... they don't need any toys!!! I think they may each get a book, and a jumprope or something along those lines... And maybe a chocolate bunny, but we still have Christmas candy so they won't be getting much of that either.

I haven't shopped yet but I'm sure it will be the usual candy and maybe a book or DVD. No small toys or trinkets, I'm sick of throwing that junk out as it is!

I'm with everyone else. No little toys. Candy but not too much. My kids LOVE dying Easter Eggs and I H A T E it with a passion, but.. I guess we need to.
So Eggs, and outside stuff and/or a Bible. Depends on whether or not our Taxes come back first.

Our Easter baskets usually just consist of some candy, CHEAP out door toys like chalk and bubbles, and maybe a book.
I have 2 birthdays soon after Easter and to make it a big deal with gifts would break me ... as well as overload the kids with gifts.

Not sure what we will put but I now for sure some candy but these guys don't need much. Probably a book for Desi and maybe an outside game for Moses. I totally agree they toys end up all over the floor and I'm stuck picking them up!! Drives me NUTS!

We are really cutting back on the candy this year. They have three sets of grandparents so they get so much candy. We never eat it all. I'm sure if I look there is still a frozen bunny in the freezer. I forgot about DS games. Christian really wants a new Pokemon game since he beat his last one.

I don't do Easter baskets. Never have. My mom gets them each something. Stuart should get his bible as my mom has bought them each a bible for their 1st easter. Then she gets them all something springy. (in the past they have all got bunnies with their names on them)

The MIL does the egg hunt and baskets so I don't do anything as to not over whelm them with crap.

We dont' do a whole lot for easter baskets for our kids. This year they are each getting a fishing rod for when we go camping. They are also each getting a spring outfit and a tiny bit of chocolate......we never have gone overboard with that kidn of stuff for our kids.
