I have four children and Easter baskets can get messy, expensive, and just full of junk, so every year I give them everything they will need (and ask for anyway ) for a fun summer. The basket is always a big sand pail. I fill it with: sand toys, goggles, inflatable water toys such as beach balls, tubes, and swimmies, water guns, kick boards, beach towels, hats, sunglasses, sun block, chapstick and so on.
The kids love it because they know that winter is over and summer is on its way. I love it because it is a fun cute basket, no candy, and when the first hot day rolls around we are ready for the pool, beach, lake, whatever!
