Since some families set the children’s goodies out on the table or a sideboard, why not make little baskets to hold small, colorful and decorative doses of candy. Of course, you can put other things in them as well, but I really recommend you to fill it with sweets or easter gifts and see it disappear! Everybody loves little lambs, chicks and other cute animals, right?
