May Day Basket Ideas 4 Kids

What’s old is new again!  Start a May Day tradition with your kids this year by leaving baskets on your friend’s and neighbor’s doorsteps on May 1st.  You can fill the May Day baskets with flowers, candy, or trinkets to brighten their day.  Don’t forget to ring the doorbell when dropping off the basket and RUNNNNN!!!  If you get caught, you’ll get a big SMOOCH!

We’ve put together a couple of cute kid friendly May Day Basket ideas.  One with a sugary treat and one without.  It’s nice to have a non-food option with everybody’s dietary restrictions and food allergies.  Or, if you’re like us, you still have a bucket full of candy leftover from Easter!
