I would like to make some things for my children's Easter baskets, but I'm at a loss as to ideas. Canaan and I are already making cookies-I would like non-food items. What have other mamas done? My children are 2 1/2 years and 10 1/2 months.

IDK about 'making' per se but when my son was younger he LOVED bubbles and sidewalk chalk.
Maybe you can make some felt or crochet/knitted food. My son loved that too for his kitchen.

For Ostara this year, I made some cloth eggs and a ton of playfood to round out what we already had. I also made a tea set, but it was really a pain to make.

I am going to try and keep the candy to a minimum, but there will have to be a chocolate bunny and some good jelly beans. I was just in Aldi yesterday, and they have lots of awesome candy!

Thanks for all the cute crafts! My ODS LOVES kitties, so I think I'll make one of those for him-YDS would like the stuffed eggs, I bet. Maybe I'll find them an egg carton-ODS really likes to put things into other things (he's commandeered my crock-pot and I'd like it back).
