Just Yoking It Up

Easter Basket To Do List:

1. Find some non-candy stuff to put in eggs
2. Add a couple books or toys
3. Get some candy to fill eggs

Pretty much any time I need ideas now (like non-candy things to fill plastic eggs) I just go to Pinterest.  I traced this stamp idea that I pinned a few weeks ago back to Vanessa's Values. I love this project because I like using stuff from the recycle bin, and I really like projects that I don't have to buy anything for. I saved up caps for a couple of weeks and we already had foam stickers since I can't help a quick pass by Target's dollar spot every time I go in there.

I was a little disappointed with the selection of stickers I found in our craft closet though. I guess Thing One mostly used them all. Sometimes you gotta work with what you got.

I'm not sure if I've mentioned that I don't always have a long attention span when it comes to crafts/projects. I like instant gratification. Stickers? Caps? Stamps! Bingo.

I filled up a few eggs and threw in a stamp pad I got at the dollar spot this summer. Hopefully that is not dried out. I guess nothing says Happy Easter like old milk caps, Halloween stickers and an old dried out stamp pad.

1. Find some non-candy stuff to put in eggs

But it gets better. Today I remembered that I had squirreled away some Mercer Mayer books that my in-laws were going to garage sale/give away.

2. Add a couple books or toys

As I was telling my husband about my extremely frugal Easter basket progress he reminded me that I stole some candy from my sister last night helped put away left overs after a little get together my sister had at her house last night.

3. Get some candy to fill eggs

He's gonna love it. : )
Thanks for reading.


  1. What a great idea. I love how you used little parts of the stickers to create a stamp...so creative! Happy Easter!

    1. Thanks! And thanks again for the inspiration! Happy Easter to you too!
