We use reusable baskets and celebrate in a try-to-be Earthy friendly and totally secular way.


20m: a few books, a little toy helicopter from north star toys, some beeswax crayons in new colors, a couple of non-pvc bath squirties, some chocolate covered raisins from the farmer's market, and a couple of schliech animals


Almost four: a few books, a bunch of little tins of wooden play food, a detailed truck for sand play, and a little wooden bridge from Maple Landmark (their bridges are SO COOL), and a pair of "bunny ears" from Whole Foods that I will let him eat with abandon. We'll probably get an ice cream that day too.

I turned a basket I already had into an "easter basket" with some pastel ribbon, and reuse it each year..  For the little ones, I put whatever sort of yummy food that they are allowed to have, in the hidden plastic eggs.  Grapes, dried fruit, crackers or cookies.

I'm a bit late to this thread ;) but our family Easter tradition is new Winter PJ's (we live in the Southern hemisphere and the weather starts to get cool around Easter time). We also a small amount of chocolate too.
