Last Minute Social Good Easter Basket Idea For Less Than $5

Easter is just around the corner and stores are selling out of pre-made Easter baskets quickly. While those premade Easter baskets are fun, they are usually filled with candy and cheap toys. If you’ve ever seen my children’s playroom, you would know we have more than enough toys. I always try to do things a bit different, and I really love adding books to baskets. This last-minute Easter basket idea is educational, gives back through the Kohl’s Cares program and won’t break the bank. I received some samples of the products from the Spring 2016 collection for the girls and instantly knew this would be a hit! I am sharing this with you today because it’s not just a better Easter basket option, but also because it has a social good element that is attached to each purchase – and something we should teach our children about from a very early age.

  • My Easter basket doesn’t deviate too much from the norm than most. I always include a toy, chocolate bunnies, eggs or candy. But I ALWAYS include a book. Of course I want my nieces and nephews to have fun. But I don’t want them to forget the importance of reading. Reading isn’t just for school — it can be fun too. I guess I try to be the cool aunt but still instill a little bit of my own values too. LOL! 🙂

  • I’ve heard about the Kohl’s Cares programme. It certainly seems to do great work and anything that helps children (and adults) to learn gets my stamp of approval.
