Less than two weeks ’til Easter!  I went shopping for my boys yesterday and got a handful of fun items at the Dollar Store just to fill up.  We’re not big on candy in our house – they get a little every holiday but it generally sits and then gets dumped a few weeks later!  I’m all about finding cute and fun fillers to have them excited on Easter morning but something that’s a little more useful than just a bunch of sugar!

I’m going to do a couple of posts based on age but here’s a list of some cute ideas for the Preschooler/young elementary-aged child for their Easter basket this year.  And keep in mind you can get a ton of these things for affordable prices at your local dollar store!:
