I went into the garage to retrieve the Easter baskets from last year and like every year before, they were either broken, lost or unsanitary from laying in the garage too long.
This year I say (in my best Mommy Dearest voice) NO MORE CRAPPY BAKSETS! And while I'm at it, no more stuffed bunnies either!
I'm going to ask some friends, do some googling, and see what alternatives I can come up with. If you have any ideas, give em to me!
*A wagon (use a large wagon and fill it for two)
*Dump truck (boy)
*Beach pail (only I have a million of these as well)
*Purse or make-up bag(perfect for the tween to teen!)
*Flower pots (add a packet of flower seeds too)
*totes or storage bins/baskets (reusable and great for all kinds of things, especially if you're from Wisconsin and say "tote" like a Yankee) :P
I'll add to the list as the day goes on. Tomorrow I may post gift ideas since most baskets are filled with things that break or fail to entertain for more than a few hours like the plastic watches with a ball maze where the face should be. You know what I'm talking about!
**I'm staying in to clean today. Cutecumber is teething too. Not fun. My nipples look as chewed as Tara Reids. <--naughty picture
