Easter was always a fun time for me when I was a kid. Spring Break means no school and fun activities. Every year my great-grandparents would pick us up and we would go to their house at the beach for Easter fun.
My great-grandma, Dottie, would dress up as the Easter bunny, no I’m not kidding, and she would take my sister and I around to different places and we would be the Easter Bunny’s helpers. We would pass out Easter eggs with candy to kids, people at nursing homes, and medical facilities. She also used to take us to get new Easter dresses. One year I got the most beautiful dress and I wish I still had it.
Since I am so much older than my siblings, 15 and 18 years apart, I like to be a grandma and always get them fun little gifts. I get them Easter baskets every year. I always hit up my favorite spot, the dollar section at Target! Last year I got them gardening kits, seeds, sunglasses, and watering pails. They were so excited!
My mom doesn’t like them to have sugar, which they definitely don’t need anyways, so I just stick to toy baskets and gifts. You can’t go wrong with window stickies, stickers, and coloring books. Target’s dollar section is so so good. Full of all the goodies!
Here are some of the things I got for them this year. I will show the full basket when Easter arrives!
Have a great weekend everyone!
