It’s almost time for Easter and it’s time to start filling those baskets full of goodies. I shop all year round for items for Easter Baskets and for Christmas Stockings. The Dollar Tree and the dollar section at Target are gold mines for baskets and stockings. These ideas are also perfect for stocking stuffers and treat bags too!
I compiled a list of over 40 items for your child’s basket. I have nothing against candy and I will put a little in the baskets, but kids need all kinds of stuff all the time. Plus I can’t stand “junk”, to me that applies to little things that my children will never use or play with, it’s just something you buy to fill the basket.
Here is my list of things your children need, want, and can use on a daily basis to fill their baskets. Some categories have several things listed.
