For those of you looking for more meaning on Easter Sunday than telling your kids about a fictional giant bunny that delivers candy, here are some religious Easter basket stuffing ideas that won’t break the bank.
Of course your local Catholic Shop or Christian Bookstore will have some cute religious stuff that would be great for Easter basket stuffing, but that’s not always a financial option for me. My favorite place to shop for cheap religious stuff is at the Dollar Tree. Check out the cheap and religious Easter basket stuffers I found at my local Dollar Tree! (Note that products can vary from store to store, although they seem to largely carry the same things. It depends on what was ordered for that particular store, so the bigger your Dollar Tree the better your chances of finding a wider selection of things).
They could make cute first communion cake toppers, too!)
(I also saw these at Giant grocery store).
Some stores have ’em, others don’t, but if yours does, stock up!
They come in Stations of the Cross, Lent, Mary, Jesus, Christmas,
and Mysteries of the rosary. They’re not labeled, so you have to know
what you’re looking at. They’ll be with the Easter stuff.
Or even 2 for $1!
You can also get fake flowers galore!
Ever heard the Easter legend of the dogwood tree?
If not, google it, and then get some for $1!
item are available for printing all over the internet. I’m signed
up for something where they email them to me all the time.)
Also, don’t forget about the internet as a resource for free or cheap stuff! You can print free prayer cards, books, coloring pages- all kinds of stuff!
Religious cookies also rock, and I’m willing to bet you already have a cross shaped cookie cutter, and an angel, too!
Another great place to bulk order religious stuff (including craft kits) is from oriental trading. They have some seriously cute and affordable religious stuff for kids!
Celebrating the true meaning of Easter can be so much fun! Sometimes I run into people who don’t want to ruin good fun by being all “religious” about it, but you can have so much fun with religious stuff! If you don’t believe me, check out my Easter post from last year. My kids had so much fun making Easter story cookies! Like, the same amount of fun as they would have had making bunny shaped cookies- honest! Your kids will be happy to have religious Easter basket stuffers, too, just as long as you don’t skip out on the jelly beans. 😉
Hope ya’ll enjoyed “window shopping” from your computer chairs today!
