*Bubbles--My kids range from 6 years to 6 months and they all love bubbles. Check out the Dollar Tree for a variety of sizes and scents.
*Swim wear--Summer's right around the corner. Why not fill that basket with a new swimsuit?
*Pool toys--Diving sticks, squishy balls, and beach balls are all great ideas.
*Books--Check out your local library or the Target clearance section for a couple of new books. This is an ageless gift.
*Puzzles--Whether your kids are just learning to put together puzzles or ready for a 1000 piece masterpiece, there are a ton of options. Plus, it's a great way to spend family time together.
*Small Instruments--Look for harmonicas, tamborines, finger cymbals, or egg shakers. And maybe a set of ear plugs for mom! :-)
*Craft Supplies--Depending on your recipients, there's crayons and coloring books, paint and brushes, embroidery thread, glitter, stickers, construction paper, scrapbook supplies, etc.
*Small cars--Check the Dollar Tree toy section or Target for matchbox cards. What little boy doesn't love them?
*Small Lego sets--Walmart carries these tiny sets with only a few pieces, but Legos are so fun, and a great addition to an Easter basket.
*Travel games--Smaller versions of classics can often be picked up at discount and provide fun both in the car and on family game night.
*Journal and stationary--My kids love writing in these little books, Even better, teach them to write notes to family and friends far away.
*Jewelry--Make some bracelets for the little ones in your life. Or pick up a special pair of earrings for that teenager.
*Hair clips--Make some of these cute hair clips or look up any of the cute tutorials on the internet. I have a couple more coming near the end of the month.
What creative ideas are you using this year?
