Frugal & Thoughtful Easter Gift

Here's an idea for a cute and inexpensive Easter gift.  I thought was cute for adult children, Church/Sunday school gift, co-workers, etc.

Buy one bag of assorted jelly beans ($1 or less) per gift.  You can either give the jelly beans in the bag, or "CUTE" it up by putting them in a mason jar or savaged jar you have at home.
Type out and attach this note with a pretty ribbon or piece of jute.

RED is for the blood He gave.
GREEN is for the grass He made.
YELLOW is for the sun so bright.
ORANGE is for the edge of night.
BLACK is for the sins we made.
WHITE is for the grace He gave.
PURPLE is for His hour of sorrow.
PINK is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet,
is a prayer, is a promise, is a special treat.

I just think this is a sweet and thoughtful gift.

I was at the Dollar Tree last week looking around, and there were so m any options for gifts for kid's Easter baskets.  They don't have to loaded down with sweets, nor do they have to cost a fortune.

I saw puzzles, Nerf balls, Slinkies, color books, crayons, story books, hair accessories, nail polish, stickers, cute mugs and plastic glasses, hand held games, etc.   They also had the cutest Star Wars cloth re-usable bags that would be perfect for a fan.    
There was so much to choose from.
Don't forget to add homemade hardboiled eggs as well.  You can make homemade cookies and jelly bean fudge as well.

Get creative and think outside the box a little.  There are many ways to be thoughtful and frugal.

God's natural burst of sunshine for our yards!!!
