Easter Inspiration: Basket Of Faith

Couldn't we all use a Basket of Faith more times than not?
 We came up with a budget savvy, boy friendly Easter basket of faith that just may inspire you to do the same. Take alook....
We found all these items, except the Easter chocolate bar at the Dollar Store. The chocolate bar is from the drug store.{Are they still called that?}. Here is a closer look at the items we picked up.




Christian Easter stickers.

Easter chocolate bar and light up yo yo.

Candy Easter carrots, "He" is Risen candy egg, and modeling clay.


Candy malted milk eggs and a Bible.

And this is what we did.

We bought some Easter purple wrapping paper from Dollar Store and  dressed up the malted milk eggs, modeling clay and yo yo's.

We placed the stickers on the wrapped Easter gifts...

On the carrots too....

A look at the "He" is risen egg.


And on the Bible.

Placed everything inside a basket we already had, and added a ribbon.
 Now you have our "Basket of Faith".

For the Christian, Easter is not about a basket full of chicks, bunnies, Bibles or even the Christian looking candy.These things are part of the bigger reason for celebrating Easter.
 It is about the love of Jesus, and what HE did on the cross for me and you!

Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me"
John 14:6

Wishing you and your family a truly blessed Easter Season
