Here's an idea to turn plain buckets into really cute Easter Baskets.
Go from this...
I used paint pens to write the names of my grand kids on the buckets. I used them to draw the pictures too. You can get paint pens at Hobby Lobby (use the 40% off coupon), Michaels (wait for a 40% off coupon) or Walmart.
I found the coolest 'grass' at Old Navy...it was already marked down to 40% off before Easter! Score!!
Use newspaper to stuff the bottom of the bucket so all your goodies don't fall to the bottom.
My husband and I decided that we would give the grand kids a bathsuit for each Easter...I had sand castle things in my 'stash'...then I filled sport theme eggs for the boys and pearlized eggs for the girls with gummie fruit.
Supplies - I had everything on hand but the swimsuits...the girl's were 40% off and the boy's was retail.
Time - about 2 hours total
Seeing those babies in their swimsuits - Pricele$$
