Easter Basket Fillers

One year, when the children were  very young, I put tiny strips of paper into eggs in their baskets, which read “Jesus loves Brad,” and “Brian is special to Jesus.” They have asked us to read them over and over again over the past few years.


Last year I made Scripture tags with specific Scriptures for each of them. I hope these become as well-worn over the years.

In addition to the Scriptures, I also slip into each basket a mug (for tea with Mommy), some form of light (a plastic lantern this year) since Jesus is the light of the world, a prayer journal, and a handful of sweets.

  3. What great ideas! This year my kids will each get one chocolate lamb(Lindt makes them) because Jesus is the Lamb of God. I love your idea with the verses. I might use it if it’s okay with you.
