May Day Baskets

{May Day Baskets from last year}
Last year we had a lot of fun making May Day Baskets.  My girls just LOVED delivering them to their friends doors, ringing the doorbell, and running away before getting caught. They are already talking about doing it again this year.   For those of you who are not familiar with the May Day Tradition, the basket giver rings the bell and runs away.  The person receiving the basket tries to catch the fleeing giver.  If caught, tradition said a kiss was to be exchanged!
I found a bunch of beautiful May Day basket ideas at Pinterest, and if you click through you can browse through them for some inspiration.  Personally, I’M TIRED so our May Day baskets are going to be very simple this year.  It may consist of a cup with a pipe cleaner handle stapled to it, and some stickers to decorate.  The one thing that won’t change from last year is my desire to fill them with treats that are not so loaded with sugar. Last year, I choose popcorn, honeycomb cereal (I thought the flower shape was cute and they don’t have a ton of sugar in them, at least for a treat), dried blueberries, multi-grain cheerios, and to top it off, …a Lindt Lindor Truffle.  I don’t know about your Easter bunny, but our Easter bunny was quite generous this year, so we have plenty of sugar in our home!

Do you have a May Day tradition?
