Instead of purchasing that giant, pink Easter basket, filled to the brim with candy eggs, chocolate and marshmallow treats, try something different, it doesn’t even have to be a basket. You could paint an old plastic bucket in Easter colors, or fill an old hat with treats, be creative!

Consider filling your "basket" with homemade treats like Easter-themed cookies instead? Enjoy time with your family cooking and decorating.
The kids can decorate some hard-boiled eggs with acrylic paints or try the Tea Stained, Blue, or Speckled Egg decorating suggested earlier.

Easter events in your area can provide a great time out as a family. A trip to church is free!
Check your local paper or search the internet for local Easter parades, local Easter egg hunts for kids...

Have a blessed Easter!

DIY Tea Stained & Blue & Speckled Eggs

For tea-stained eggs, add 2 tea bags to glass of hot water and allow to steep. Lower egg into water for several minutes until desired color is reached. Set aside to dry.

For blue eggs, combine 1 drop of blue food coloring with 1 drop of green food coloring in glass of water. Feel free to play with different amounts of food coloring to adjust the color. Lower egg into water and set aside to dry.

To speckle eggs, we used one bottle of brown craft paint and a toothbrush. Dip brush into paint and lightly splatter and dab around the egg to achieve a random, lightly dotted pattern. Allow to dry.

Here is a site for "Fugal moms" - if you have young children, try some of these crafts instead of spending a bunch on Easter decorations, etc...
