Easter basket hiding spots

Do you hide your kids' Easter baskets? If so, what have been the best spots?

I have hidden them:
In the ottoman, behind the couch, in the coat closet, in the oven, on a chair seat pushed under the kitchen table, in the bathtub, in cupboard with the pans, and in the freezer. Click here to enlarge

We have a lot of fun on Easter morning. Ds will be 12 soon and I have told him his basket will be hidden "somewhere in the house", as he was all for having Easter baskets this year.

I am looking for suggestions on great hiding places.

My kids are almost 15 and 12, so IT'S ON.

This year I'm hiding ds's outside in the patio storage giant rubbermaid thing. I think dd's will be in the dryer. Or in the car. We'll see.

Opinions are like orgasms. Mine matters most and I could care less if you have one.

Yes, I think I did the dryer once too. We really have a lot of fun with it.

I think for ds, I am gonna put the bowl for my mixer in the dishwasher and put his basket under the mixer and put the cover back over it. I hope it fits there.

I still need a spot for dd.

This is the first year I am not hiding. I am not hiding the plastic eggs either.

Tapatalk is where the typos are at.

i hide them on top of the dining room table.

Petition the White House to Adopt the Chartreuse Awareness Ribbon for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse.

"While there are many colors for various causes, (for example, Child Abuse and Autism both share the same color ribbon) there is no nationally recognized ribbon in chartreuse. Child sexual abuse affects so many children and yet prevention organizations struggle to receive the funding they need to raise awareness and educate people on all the simple ways we can empower our children, families, and communities against abuse."

I don't do baskets, but I do get each of the kids a bigger bunny or egg sort of thing, which I put their name on, so they have to find their own. I'm loving the idea of the drier. Ds will never, ever look there. Click here to enlarge He's 15, so I feel the need to make him work harder than the 6yo.

Never hid them, we made "nests". That was a carry over from my childhood. The night before Easter everyone had to have a bath because we had church in the morning. So we took our dirty clothes and made the nest with them, and that's where the Easter bunny would leave our baskets.
I have no idea where the tradition came from, and admittedly it's a little strange to put food in a pile of dirty clothes, but I loved it as a kid and so did my kids.

Baskets are hidden here, too. We've had them in the bathtub and dryer, behind the tv stand & couch, in closets and cupboards. I love hiding them in places that seem almost too obvious because they never ever look there. Click here to enlarge

I hid them on their bed once. It was tricky getting it back in there when they were looking somewhere else.

I didn't even know anyone hid baskets Click here to enlarge we put them in the living room for the kids to come down to and stuff their little faces.

My brother will be hiding the plastic eggs in his huge yard. I'll be standing by, hopefully with a glass of wine Click here to enlarge

I've hidden them in the dishwasher.


What was funniest is that my younger two have horribly messy rooms. I've hidden the baskets in their rooms. Click here to enlarge

We hide them, although I threatened the little crap weasels with NO BASKETS if the couldn't keep from messing with each other. The brats have joined forces to drive me nuts and it is working.

Its on this year. Not only am I going to make it difficult, but instead of baskets they are getting beach totes with a towel, flip flops and some candy so they are not going to be looking for what they think they are looking for Click here to enlarge

One year they had a trail of clues that led to baskets. That was actually really fun

Please remind your children what to do if their clothing catches fire. It could save their life.

I never hide baskets; they wake up to find the baskets on the table with a couple of small things in them (a DVD and a chocolate bunny, usually) and then they take the baskets and hunt around the living room for the plastic/filled and for the real eggs.

This year I did the blown-out eggs because I'm still Click here to enlarge from the time I found a hard-boiled Easter egg nearly a year after the fact, that had gotten pushed a little too far back into the bookshelf behind some books. The mice had already been there. Click here to enlarge

I wish I did hide Easter baskets, so I could tell the kids to look for their baskets, then go back to bed. (I didn't do any Easter baskets this year.)

We always hide them, and this year they will be hidden by dh for the first time so it'll be interesting to see what he does.

He took dd2 to a concert tonight and I can't reach where he stored the baskets, so now he gets to assemble and hide them alone bc I'm 15 mins into a lunesta and will be sawing logs shortly. Click here to enlarge
