Easter Baskets {healthy and practical} Are Here.

Easter Baskets {healthy and practical} Are Here.

I finished putting together my kid’s Easter baskets this morning, and I am pretty excited how they turned out.  Our baskets or buckets this year were found in the outside toy section at Target for $1.99 each.  At the bottom of the bucket there is a new bag of ankle socks topped with a large handful of Easter grass.  A pair of flip flops with a flashlight, granola bars, and fruit ropes complete the basket perfectly.  Hopefully a pair of swim goggles will make their way in before the big day.

I plan to fill Easter Eggs with printable jokes from the internet, health food store candy, and clementines – three of our favorite things.

Some other fun and sugar free Easter basket ideas may include:

  • New T-shirts or shorts
  • Pajamas
  • Slippers
  • Baseball cap
  • Sun screen
  • Sunglasses
  • Swimming goggles
  • Church ties
  • New toothbrushes with toothpaste
  • Mouthwash (big deal at my house)
  • New swim suit
  • Crayons, markers, stamps, coloring books.
  • Goggly eyes and art supplies
  • Hair clips for little girls
  • New belt
  • Harmonica
  • Sand box toys
  • etc.

{Happy Spring!}

 

Sugar Free Christmas Advent Calendar for Kids

Sugar Free Christmas Advent Calendar for Kids

Our Christmas tree emerged from the garage early this year, and is spreading magic throughout our house.  I love the opportunity Christmas provides to celebrate loved ones and the miracle of life.  The kids and I love to celebrate with our own sugar-free Christmas advent calendar (inspired from here) that makes the book-lover in me very happy.  Over the years, we have collected a variety of Christmas books and movies and I keep them hidden throughout the year to maintain their specialness.

Around the end of November, the books and movies are wrapped and nestled under the tree waiting their turn to be opened.  The kids then take a turn opening one present (book or movie) each day until Christmas Eve when there are no more presents to unwrap.  I love this tradition because it forces me to carve time out of our busy holiday schedule to nestle around the Christmas tree with my children reading and watching movies together.  I love that it allows me to connect the story and the meaning and the joy of the season.

Because that is what Christmas is really about.

And while we are on the topic… have I ever told you about our very first Christmas tree spine?

 

A Chiropractic Christmas

 

Newly wed students with no income to brag about, we chose to spend our first Christmas together nestled around a multi-colored spine.  Because Christmas – as we learn from the Grinch – doesn’t come from the store.  Christmas lives in our hearts… and that means so much more!

 

What favorite Christmas traditions do you have with your family?
