I know that Valentine’s Day just passed, but it’s time to look ahead to upcoming holidays, like St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and Easter (April 16th). St. Patrick’s Day is not much of a kid’s holiday (I think that one adults celebrate the most), but Easter sure is. Easter is definitely a family holiday.
I wish my kids were young enough to enjoy Easter like they used to. I loved it when they believed in the Easter Bunny. They still enjoy Easter, but more so for Easter dinner and for whatever candy I give them.
Growing up I made sure NOT to stuff our kid’s Easter baskets full of candy. I know that Easter is all about the candy (when you are kid), but I didn’t want my kids to gorge themselves on a lot of candy, most especially because their grandparents always gave them A LOT of candy for Easter.
Instead of candy I would fill their Easter baskets with coloring books, a new box of crayons, reading books, small toys and some candy. One year both our kids got scooters for Easter (and a little bit of candy). My kids never complained about not have a basket overflowing with candy.
If you are in the market for some Easter basket ideas – check out what is new with Kohl’s Cares.
If you are not familiar with Kohl’s Cares it’s a special program that Kohl’s offers to consumers that helps to raise funds for children’s charities.
A few times each year, Kohl’s Cares offers consumers books, plush toys and other goodies for only $5.00 each. The proceeds from the sales of these products goes towards children’s charities. Kohl’s Cares donates 100% of the net profit to Kohl’s Cares charities that support kid’s health and education programs nationwide.
Since 2000 Kohl’s Cares has raised and impressive $257 million dollars. Talk about a “win-win” situation. You get wonderful products and the proceeds goes towards children’s charities.
I am a HUGE fan of the Kohl’s Cares program. I love that they are raising so much money for children’s charities. I also love the products available as part of the Kohl’s Cares program. I especially love their books and matching plush toys ($5.00 each). For only ten dollars you can have a wonderful gift for a child. The products available from Kohl’s Cares would also make great, affordable Easter basket stuffers.

These are just SOME of the products currently available in the Kohl’s Cares program.
The Dr. Seuss books are hardcover books. They sell for over $10+ elsewhere, but with Kohl’s Cares they are only $5.00.
The plush animals are super soft and snugly. Quality plush toys sold elsewhere are easily $10 – $20 each, but with Kohl’s Care they are only $5.00.
I love getting the book and matching plush toys and keep them for gifts. The “set” makes a perfect gift. It costs you only $10, but they look like you spent double, if not more, than that amount. Plus the proceeds goes towards children’s charities, so it’s a “win-win” situation.
Kohl’s Cares has a super adorable bunny with a small book for only $5.00. This would make a PERFECT addition to any Easter basket.
If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the photo I uploaded of the sweet bunny and adorable book.
I smile each and every time I look at him. The book is darling too.
I have a few of the current Kohl’s Cares products (Thidwick book and plush, Sneeches book and plush, Bunny and book and 100 Cool Simple Science Experiments). I donated the books and plush to a kindergarten program (the plush are used as “reading buddies”), which is why I don’t have a photo of them. They look exactly like they do on the website.
I work as a teacher’s assistant and I brought the science experiments book to work with me so that we can try some of the experiments with the kids. There are some super cool experiments in the book. I am looking forward to trying them out.
The bunny and book I kept for my family. The bunny will make a cute Easter decoration, and the book is a nice addition to my family’s library.
