  • Hiking and adventure: compass, trail mix, granola bars, flashlights

 

  • Movie time: DVDs, popcorn, pillows, soda bottles

 

  • Day spa: loofa, nail files, nail clippers, eye masks, lotion

 

  • Kitchen fun: kids' cookbook, measuring cups, frosting, cake mix, decorating supplies

 

  • Budding artist: crayons, paper pads, finger paints, stickers, glue

 

Child's Play, a toy store at 2305 N.W. Kearney St., is offering an Easter Basket Buffet: Choose from items such as miniature art supplies, hair clips, stickers, bicycle bells, mini Etch-A-Sketch drawing toys and more to assemble a custom basket.
