Today, we are sharing Easter Basket Filler Ideas for Boys & Girls using items purchased on the cheap! This post is sponsored by Mirum & opinions are mine.
Fortunately, it’s easy to make quality homemade Easter Baskets with items you’re kids like by shopping smart. My wife is ALWAYS on the lookout for clearance and sale items at stores like Walmart.
To be honest, my wife is a much better shopper than I am. She might even be a better Easter Basket designer. I mean, I did try to assemble these baskets and then I started eating half the filler candies and snacks…WOOPS.
The one thing I was a pro at was buying some Slim Jim Gable Tops (26 count) and large sticks on a Walmart run. I love these meaty snacks which I keep in my desk at work when I am feeling hungry. My son also LOVES them so I picked up an extra box for him.
These meat snacks make an excellent Easter basket stuffer! They are America’s #1 meat stick. Each gable pack stores 26 mini sticks which are perfect for on the go snacking! I love how they are protein packed which is excellent for muscle building. They are made with beef, pork, and chicken and have smoky taste.
Slim Jim products are pretty inexpensive for the quality (only $4.98 at Walmart), but they were actually the most expensive addition to these Easter Baskets. That means these baskets were able to be assembled for super cheap with many of the items at just $1 each or less. The toy eggs that hatch were only $2.50 per pack on clearance–total score!!
