I spend most of my time leading up to Easter anticipating my first bite of stuffoli and trying to figure out what I’m going to stuff into the Easter eggs for our Easter morning egg hunt. My boys don’t really like candy – I can get away with M&Ms or sour gummies in some of the eggs, but anything else will just sit in a cabinet until I cave and eat it. Last year I put together a few of our favorite candy free Easter basket ideas, and we’re using many of those this year too, but I really wanted to add something new to surprise the kids. My husband suggested giving them vouchers for ipad apps and the idea just kind of grew from there – coupons! Not just for apps, but for a trip to the bookstore, a picnic, lunch, a family movie or a late bedtime. I wanted to fill the eggs with experiences for the kids that would go beyond Easter weekend and remind us to keep doing special things for and with each other. So grab these free printable Easter coupons and fill your eggs with something extra special this year!
