My children will wake at the crack of dawn and weave their own baskets. Only after I have thoroughly inspected the baskets for flaws in the weave and those flaws corrected will they be allowed to hunt for eggs and prizes. Prizes that I did not hide. When they return home, defeated and disappointed I will explain to them how life is horrible and no matter how hard you work you will get shiat on. Then we will ceremoniously burn the baskets and return to our normal activities. This will be repeated year after year until they run away from home.

No Such Agency: Di Atribe:
wooden spoons, spatulas (she loves to bake)

Teach a man to fish...

Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day.

Teach a man to fish with wooden spoons and spatulas, and he's probably going to starve to death.

Agarista: When I was about 10, mom put a VHS of the Life of Brian in my Easter basket.

NO WAY! I was told he took that video of me for 'personal use'!

luxup: My kids, only been to the Dr for regular check ups. Sooo suck on that.

Maybe you should see a doctor, too. I'm sure they could refer you to a specialist who could remove that great big stick that's shoved up your ass.

Back in the seventies, my older brother and I would each get for Easter, a new speedo-type swimsuit crammed into a platistic egg, for use the following summer.

The suits were often too small to be comfortable.

That's what Easter means to me.

In 1998, my stepdad got an N64 before Easter, and set it up for us to find in the middle of the table with a controller and a game in each of our baskets. We didn't care for a second that there was nothing chocolatey to find.

It was the best Easter ever.

penthesilea: My kid doesn't have much of a sweet tooth.
Slingshot & seed bombs are good.  Mini art sets and blank journals to write/doodle in.  A Yo-yo, those little super bouncy balls, bird call thing, binoculars, pocket knife, compass, local maps, code books, a watch, Mad Libs, and so on...

Basically, just treat the basket like a Christmas stocking.

It's never too early to get your little engineer started.

I got my first Dungeons & Dragons boxed set in my Easter basket. He is risen! Roll to hit!

And there's a difference between some candy and enough candy to turn your poop gray for a day. My daughter is getting the former. She's more excited over the Barbie and the Pink Shoes DVD and the Ivy and Bean books anyway.

I don't understand how Easter became Christmas re-loaded.

Oh wait...capitalism.
