Frugal Easter Fun

Today I’m going to focus on the “fun-tivity” part of Easter. Dying eggs, Easter baskets, Easter egg hunt, etc.

Although I do consider myself an “easygoing” frugal mom, I have found ways to make things nice for all 6 of my kids on less than we used to spend when the oldest two were little. Not by taking extreme measures…it’s in all the little choices made along the way (could be said for much of life actually).

When we only had one, money didn’t feel so tight and it was easy to give him a nice Easter basket, but as our family grew there were many times where spending $15 or more was simply not in the budget.

    I love that the focus of your baskets is NOT on candy. They get so much from everyone else, this grandma likes skipping it altogether :) I’m thinking cute toothbrushes this year, among other fun things. One favorite tradition for our family is sharing a set of Resurrection eggs which I wrote about at eHow – While you can purchase these eggs, I spotted the directions to make them yourself at Rainbow Castle – :) You could easily make a set of these for each child’s basket :) Happy Easter.
