Yesterday I shared where to find the perfect Easter basket (or you could make your own), and today I wanted to share some last-minute gifts I bought for my kids without leaving the house.
I'm a big fan of Amazon Prime, but that didn't happen on purpose. I signed up for the trial last summer but then forgot to cancel before I was charged for the year. That was one of the best mistakes I've ever made! Their two-day shipping has saved the day (and more mula) more times than I can count! (Read more about the awesome benefits of Amazon Prime here.)
I'm not a fan of all the candy that usually comes with Easter, but don't want to totally deprave the kids. So I picked out some organic bunny fruit snacks from Annie's. You have to buy them in bulk packs, but you can save them or use them for a giant Easter egg hunt, too.
Next, I went for something faith-related and ordered The Loyal Kids Book of Heroes. It's a collection of stories about saints and Biblical characters who were heroes of the faith. I liked this book more than a regular saints book, because it shares different stories about Christ and categorizes the profiles by traits and values associated with each of the Bible stories.
Last up, Peaceable Kingdom's Count Your Chickens board game! This is a cooperative board game where the kids play together instead of against each other--best idea ever! Not only does it encourage sibling harmony, but it's also an eco-friendlier product with soy-based inks, FSC papers (that's Forest Stewardship Council which equals ecologically and responsibly managed forests), and corn-based plastic parts that are phthalate- and BPA-free.
And even better, you don't have to punch out all the little pieces to get started!
As you can see, I chose not to get a bunch of knick-knacks for the kids, opting for group gifts instead. I did this in hopes to focus less on the gimme-gimmes and more on the reason we're celebrating Easter. Gifts that nurture the body, mind, and soul? Priceless. Order your gifts today and they'll be at your door by Friday. Easy-peasy.
Have you found any awesome gifts to share with your kids this Easter?
