Easter is right around the corner and Easter baskets are something us Moms need to get started on! Thankfully we have places like Amazon where we can order it online and have it shipped to us so no one sees what the Easter Bunny is bringing 🙂
If you have a kiddo like my son Logan then you have one who loves video games. For me it is hard to find games that I consider age appropriate for him to play at 10 years old that are also considered “cool” at school. So I had him help me with testing out some games and finding out which ones he thinks would be Awesome Easter Basket Ideas for the Video Game loving Kid. (In full disclosure Nintendo sent us some games and I did not tell Logan that he was playing them and telling me about them to help the Easter Bunny Moms. I asked him which ones he thinks would be the best to give kiddos who got good grades 😉 ).
