    Thanks for the suggestions! I’d like to add a couple more. Last year we used the buckets from greentoys.com in lieu of baskets. They’re probably too small for older kids, but great for the toddler set. Also, we filled our eggs with Annie’s cheddar bunny and bunny graham crackers.

  7. Holly E says:
