Last Minute Easter Tip for Blended Families
Except your idea of an Easter basket is different than his/her's. It's a little late to run to the store and pick up new ones. So instead of using the old ones for candy use them to do the egg hunt. Grab like-sized bowls and fill for each child. No like-sized bowls in the house?
No problem. Lunch bags will work, decorate them or have the kids do it. The candy that doesn't fit in the bags can go into a big family bowl.
This way, no one feels mistreated. Next year buy new baskets all the same to help your family feel blended, or continue with your new make-your-own-basket tradition.
