Easter baskets are a super fun tradition! If you’re looking for ways to keep the focus on Christ this Easter, here are some ideas for a religious Easter basket.
Easter baskets are a fun way to celebrate Easter. Candy, bright colors, and spoiling my kids with things I know they’ll love are all some of my very favorite things!
That being said, I sometimes worry that Easter baskets detract from the true meaning of Easter–Christ. And I know many other moms have the same worry.
If you’re like me and want to make sure that Easter fun doesn’t overshadow Christ, here are some ideas to infuse the true meaning of Easter into your Easter baskets. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing!
