Before we talk Easter Basket ideas for boys and girls, let’s talk about EASTER. Easter is, hands down, one of my very favorite holidays. The 3 quiet and sad days after Jesus’ death and then the absolutely joyous celebration that comes with His resurrection. The promise of that new life, the astonishment of God’s love boundless love for us.
Aside from the joy of Jesus beating death, it’s just the most beautiful time of year. We’re all coming out of that winter, cold weather fog and we are greeted by sunny skies, gorgeous, warm weather. There are so many reasons to love this time of year. Celebrating Easter is always so much fun for us. I wanted to share my roundup of Easter Basket ideas for your kiddos that I know y’all will love!
