|Starburst Jelly Beans are my absolute favorites|
I love Easter. Always have, since I was a kid. So I like planning some fun activities for my kids. The thing that I loved as a kid but hate as a parent is the unreal amount of candy and junk food that abounds. What's worse is how delicious it all looks. What's the absolute worst is that I steal a few pieces here and there... a few times per day.... until it's all gone. Just when I thought I had recovered from Halloween...
So I try to be creative with the Easter baskets. There has to be at least some candy. Of course. But here are a few other less-sugary alternatives:
Stickers. I absolutely love stickers. They are so much less messy than markers, paint and glue and more fun than crayons. If you plan ahead, you can order stickers online in bulk for a much cheaper price than the tiny two-sheet packages at most stores.
