    Summer's on its way! Get the kids ready by stocking their baskets with some essentials they're sure to need for the season.

    Sunglasses are a perfect item to start with. In fact, it's probably smart to purchase more than one pair since it's likely they'll lose one at some point.

    Summer Shoes or Flip Flops

    Keeping with the theme of summer, throw in a pair of sandals or flip flops. That's all the kids will be wearing pretty soon anyway.

    A Craft or Fun Activity

    Tech Stuff

    Now, something for the older kids. If you've got some older children in the mix who have absolutely no interest in anything like sidewalk chalk or a craft anymore, you can't go wrong with anything that has to do with technology. How about a Bluetooth speaker?

    Every preteen and teenager needs a Bluetooth speaker these days, in fact, they probably already have one. If that's true, then so is this: they probably misplace them a lot.

    Check this one out for an affordable option. The Easter Bunny will probably thank you for your frugality.
