Easter Baskets for Boys
If you are filling easter baskets for boys this year, we have some great ideas of non-candy items you can put in your baskets this year. At our house, we put just a small amount of candy in the kids’ baskets and we like to add a few small toys or books to fill the baskets. They already get so much candy at local Easter egg hunts that we like to limit the sweets, plus I like to restock things like art supplies, reading materials or outdoor toys. We found lots of fun things in all price ranges to help you shop for Easter this year.

The Cinco Linko Travel Strategy Game is like a 5-minute fiesta that you can fit in your pocket, clip to your bag or sling in a suitcase. Take it with to the far reaches of the world and play with strangers, or simply bring it to a friend’s house for hours of entertainment. The rules are simple: just choose a color, grab a stack and lay down tiles until someone sneaks a line of five. Easy enough, right? Except, when there are three other players putting tiles down and everyone has the same goal in mind, things can go from easy to tricky in a heartbeat. Simple rules allow for a quick start with this on-the-go game. Each player receives a stack of colored tiles, taking it in turns to place a tile on the table and racing to get five in a row before anyone else. Each tile must line up with the flat side of another (no placing corners on corners) and the lines can go horizontally, vertically or diagonally. If you manage to use all of your tiles and there’s still no winner, you can reposition them one at a time. That’s Cinco Linko—a simple game that offers hours of entertainment for everyone! This set comes with a carabineer, connector hub, 4 storage racks, 60 playing pieces and instructions.

Your tweens will love this fun and highly-reviewed game! Skull King is a trick-taking game similar to ‘Wizard’, ‘Eucher’ and ‘Spades’, with players needing to state how many tricks they think they’ll win each round. A unique element of this game is that bidding takes place simultaneously, leading to rounds that are sometimes over, or under-bid.

His situation is unqiue, but the feelings of not-quite-belonging and the struggle to find a sense of purpose and identity are things we all wrestled with at that age. Readers find a main character they can relate to, and will understand and go along when he makes questionable choices in his attempts to figure himself out and make his mark on the world. They’ll be rooting for him from page one.
