Do you think your teenagers are too old to receive Easter Baskets on Easter Sunday? Well mine arenÂ’t! In case you, too, have those young-at-heart teens, here are some Easter Basket ideas that teens will love.

Clothes

LetÂ’s face it, when it comes to clothes, your teen will never have enough! What a perfect time to give your teenager some spring Clothing. There are still sales going on before the new summer line is being promoted, so you can find some great deals on spring clothes. I was just at Old Navy and they had t-shirts, shorts, and spring pants & dresses at 1/3 off the regular price! K-Mart, Wal-Mart, and many others, including Mall stores, are not only having clearance sales, but sales on spring items.

Books

This time of year, many new books are hitting the market. Why not encourage reading in your teen by giving them the latest hot-selling title.

Toiletries

Fill that Easter basket with much needed soaps, shampoos, hair gels & other hair products, deodorants, and acne creams. You might even want to throw in some suntan lotion or sunscreen to help them look forward to the summer!

School Supplies

About this time of year, school supplies have either run out, been lost, or are worn out. Fill that Easter Basket with new pens, pencils, folders, notebooks, and notebook paper.

For those who want to be a little more extravagant, try adding these gifts.

Candy

What teen doesnÂ’t like candy? ItÂ’s something you just never seem to outgrow. IÂ’m not a big fan of chocolate, but I feel special occasions deserve good chocolate! The week before Easter you will find great sales on Candy EVERYWHERE. Also, if you like to make your own, you will find candy-making supplies at specialty stores and most local grocery stores. For those who donÂ’t like chocolate or are allergic, try making carob candy-check out your local health food store for supplies and details.

Entertainment

This is a great time to give the gift of entertainment to your teenager. Why not buy a book of movie passes to distribute in various Easter baskets. You can usually purchase the tickets cheaper this way and your teen will love a free movie. If the price of a movie ticket in your area is a little high, why not buy a gift card at the local video shop. Teens also love their music; so another great gift is a C.D. of their favorite artist. LetÂ’s face it, every kid likes to get an Easter Basket, and teenagers are no exception. Why not fill that basket with practical items that are not only needed, but are sure to please!

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
