Easter is coming up, so it is time to start planning what to put inside your little one's Easter basket. Below are some ideas. Please leave a comment with any other ideas you have.
Since Easter is a religious holiday, I think it is good to put something religious in the Easter baskets. My favorite children's religious books are by Greg Olsen. I love his artwork and that the pictures look more real. So many of the religious books I have looked at for kids have cartoon characters, but I think kids prefer looking at more lifelike pages. I actually used the free Picaboo coupon and made my own "Church Book" for my son to put in his basket this year. I included stories from the bible and about Jesus and Gospel concepts.
