Before May 1 even peeped around the corner I would tell the little’s the story of May Day and how people knock on your door and run away but leave a present that always included flowers. The 3 year old kept getting it confused with St. Patrick’s Day and leprechauns sneaking into the house and leaving a bag of golden money.( Unfortunately it is only the chocolate kind).
My hubby (a.k.a. Pa) and I put these May Day baskets together. Being the thrifty and frugal woman that I am all of it was 75%-90% off after Easter except of course I put together their flower headbands at the last minute. The gardening gloves are actually for toddlers and they come in a package of 2.
Now to wait for our little girls to call us and tell us someone left a present for them on the porch.
