Yesterday we talked about Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail… and asked what is he bringing to your house? We talked about how in most of the homes in America he will be bringing treats and candy. All of the candy our kids get at Easter is nuts. If you are at all like me, you might be saying “Enough is enough!” This brought about the blog yesterday with ideas for non-candy basket filler for all of these Easter baskets. Those were great for the kids but what do you do if you need to fill an Easter basket for a teenager? Teen Easter baskets that go beyond candy can be a challenge.
