Family Dollar Easter Basket Challenge

I was asked by Family Dollar to use a gift card they provided to use sales and coupons and try and make a great Easter Basket for our kiddos! With 3 girls who love to play outside, eat yummy candy and get fund stuff, it was easy to shop at Family Dollar for all their Easter Basket gifts!

I was able to get all of this for $15.09 after sales and coupons at Family Dollar! Thanks Family Dollar for allowing me to participate in this challenge and grab some great stuff for our girls!

I received a gift card from Family Dollar in hopes that I would write about my experience in their Easter Basket challenge. No other compensation was received and my opinion is 100% my own!

Kids Frugal Fun: Homemade Easter Basket


Each week Momondealz  brings us a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal. Easter is quickly approaching so the next couple of weeks will be Easter Crafts. If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page. If you enjoy these crafts, please be sure to share them on Pinterest

Homemade Easter Basket

Materials:
Cardboard box
Construction paper
Paint
Decor of your choice (depends on theme of your basket)
Markers
Glue or Mod Podge
Googly eyes

Directions:
1. Cut the lid of your box off.

2. Paint the box in the color you desire. You can also cover it in construction paper if you don’t have paint (this would work better at covering any letters on the box).

3. Next we added the red lines of Thomas because I knew the face would be pasted over them.

4. Create the “face” of your Easter basket. My son chose Thomas so I cut and drew it, and he was able to color it and add the googly eyes.

5. Add the remaining features or characteristics of your character. We made wheels and the number 1 for Thomas and added those.

6. Create a handle. I originally had Will paint the lid of the box but the color red was off so we decided to just fold a piece of card-stock several times and this made it pretty stable. I suggest using cardboard for best results, we just ruined ours by painting it the wrong red.
7. Fill with grass and eggs or gifts/candy.
Some ideas to fill the basket:

Educational Activities:

  • Math: Discuss the shapes used in this craft (rectangle box, circle wheels and face, etc. You can put math shapes inside of plastic Easter eggs and have your child open them and identify the shapes found.
  • Language Arts: Create your Easter Basket based on your child’s favorite book character. Talk about how the character is described in the book to help bring him or her to life for your child.
  • Science: Grow your own Easter grass by getting some grass seed and putting it in a recycled yogurt or butter container. Discuss with your child the needs of the grass (sun, water) and how all plants need these things to survive.

Ideas for Easter Baskets Items

With Easter right around the corner, I have been stocking up on items to add to our girls Easter Baskets! If you are like me, buying pre-made baskets seem like a waste of money for 2 reasons! It is usually cheap junk, that lasts a whole week and they are usually pretty pricey for the small amount of items you get.

Although the picture above is a super cute basket, $38 is a little too much to spend on 1 basket, multiply this by 3 (we have 3 girls) and we have spent way too much!! Plus now we have added 2 puppy babies to our house and our girls are asking if the Easter Bunny will be bringing the puppies anything! Yikes, I need a part time job just to be able to afford Easter gifts!! Although they still know the true meaning of Easter it’s just like Christmas, they want fun stuff to play with!

I like to find things that I know my girls will enjoy and use for a while and are within our budget! Here is a list of items that we have put in our kiddos Easter Baskets over the years!

Items from your stockpile:

  • Crayons- we have some left over from the back to school deals
  • Gum- older kiddos would love this!
  • FREE Candy- CVS is always running sales on candy, so we have  a whole drawer of items we can add to our girls baskets
  • Clothes- I have a tote full of clothes that I have found on clearance at Target, Old Navy or Justice that I have held onto for either Birthday’s, Easter or Valentine’s Day.
  • Markers
  • Glue Sticks
  • Rulers

Dollar Store Ideas:

  • Bubbles
  • Puzzles
  • Jump Ropes
  • Tattoos
  • Colored Pencils
  • Coloring Books
  • Play-doh
  • Stickers
  • Bubble Bath
  • Head Bands or Hair Accessories
  • Sidewalk Chalk
  • Scrapbook Supplies- stamps, scissors, stencils, etc
  • Dress up accessories- necklaces, shoes, etc
  • Sunglasses
  • Hot Wheels Cars
  • Kite
  • Barbies
  • Action Figurines or Army Men
  • Diary

Amazon Ideas:

Book Ideas:

Homemade Ideas:

  • Make up some Bath Paint with Shaving Cream
  • Grab some super cheap Flip Flops from a local craft store or dollar store and decorate them. Add glitter, gems, bows, whatever you think your little one would like.
  • Make a batch of Edible Play-doh and put them in cute jars. Tie a few cookie cutters to the jars and a mini rolling pin for the dollar store!

Other Ideas:

  • Personalize a T-shirt- there are many places you can create a one of a kind t-shirt just for your kiddos! Vistaprint has one for just $2!
  • Sand Box Toys & Accessories
  • Hula Hoops
  • Nail Polish or Girl Accessories (lip gloss, chapstick, etc)
  • Flip Flops or Sandals
  • Movie Passes
  • Coupons for Days out with Mom or Dad or skip a chore pass, be creative!
