making Easter Baskets for Kids & save Money

Updated on April 12, 2015

would you like to save money and make up a perfect basket or baskets for a lot less Also personalize it the way you would like. This is Easy to do by following a few simple steps.

1. Shop at dollar stores (you can find a lot of themes princess cars ext..)also candy and other little things that kids love Punching balloons,Bubbles and crayons and books.Also add some gumball surprises and already kind of in an egg.

2.Instead of buying a basket buy a Big Pail that way the child can also use this as a toy for digging and playing outside (kids favorites for spring) What could be better than dirt?

3.Need the plastic covering no problem a little bit of practice and saran wrap can look fantastic and you can pick up for a dollar.Trust me I did a baby shower Basket in saran=wrap and it came out amazing.

4.Don't like the grass too much mess?? Fill the bottom of the basket with Strips of Construction paper light pastel colors, And kids can reuse it to make crafts. and Construction paper is also very inexpensive.

5. candy A big bag will be cheaper than the little ones kids don't care with candy what it is shaped like. Lollipops are a big hit and once again you can pick up a bag for 1.00.

It's not hard to cut corners and make a great Kid's Gift Basket and kids actually get more than if you buy the store bought ones they usually have more paper and plastic and cardboard than the actual candy and presents and cost twice as much if not more.Also you can personalize your Basket/Pail to what your child would like.

Well have a Happy Easter and I hope this hub has helped out

      "How to make up a Gift Basket for Easter and Save Money"

      Festivals, memorials, places, moments, hours, days, years all are reflectors of the feelings of thanksgiving. Children being innocent and yet not fully realized the importance and significance of the event the elders play a parental and educative role to avoid any breach and to serve as a bridge. All that we have is to be delivered to these children sooner or later and thus the affair continues which is meaningful.

      Thanksgiving is again an indication that there is the Creator and the creation. Creation is to pass through the time but this passing mus be advantageous and beneficial. With full conviction that God Almighty is our Creator and reckoner of all our deeds we have to conduct rightly and then stress upon remain truthful ourselves and also encourage others to remain truthful in their conduct. The untrue forces will not tolerate the truthful conduct and many odds will come across at that moment to observe tolerance and show patience is the best way to save from all sorts of harm, loss, and disadvantage.

      With full respect to different cultures, we must play our role in a graceful manner whereby the truth prevails.

      May God Almighty bless all every where.
