In an effort to keep my own sugar intake levels down, (or at least down to a reasonable level), I've been considering the contents of Easter baskets. As I purchase items for 3 baskets, it's amazing how often I find myself saying, "well you just have to have peeps in an easter basket"...and then..."well it's not Easter without Cadbury Eggs and jelly beans"...and then..."hollow chocolate rabbits were in every basket of mine, as a kid...so.....".
By the time I'd get all of that there would hardly be room for anything EXCEPT the candy. So I've been reconsidering what I choose to fill their baskets with and have come up with alternatives such as:
plastic eggs filled with stickers, nickels, tattoos
disposable cameras (my kids LOVE these)
age appropriate movies
AND a limited amount of candy
I'm sure others of you have many more ideas, so share them with us all!
