Happy Easter! #EASTER Tips for fun items to include in #easterbaskets

I cannot believe it is Easter weekend! I hope that the weather warms up soon as it will be April. As the kids get older I have to figure out what to put in their Easter Baskets. Yes, I still love to gather items for Easter baskets even though they are teens. I used to overthink it about the actual items to include when they were little and everything had to be exactly the same and of equal amount. Of course chocolate is on the list but if you have a hard time figuring out what to put in your kids baskets here are a few suggestions.

If your kids are little – any card game, small board game, writing pads, slime, jewelry, fun hair accessories, little stuffed animals

If your kids are older – money (lol) maybe a gift card, lip balms, nail polish kits, fun jewelry storage dishes, cute signs for their room decor, make-up, sports tickets, any tech accessory

Of course candy and especially a nice chocolate bunny still tops the list around here.

Happy Easter and enjoy the weekend!

Easter Fashions

Happy Easter Weekend. This time of year we have a lot of special occasions and parties to attend.  This weekend is Easter and coming up we have a wedding, first communion for my seven year old and a Bat Mitzvah to attend. That means we need a few fancy outfits. Luckily I did have a few dresses that were given as gifts. I also matched my 7 year old’s yellow dress she had from last summer with an adorable skirt from the Gap for my 10 year old to wear.  Tis ‘the season for pleats.  Similar, yes but not matchy, matchy.  They are at the age where I certainly cannot get them to wear anything close to matching. I would love it if both girls wore these similar styles – a white dress with a green tie and this green dress but after trying unsuccessfully to get them to wear them together I think I give up!

Enjoy your Easter weekend!
