Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays for little kids. There is something magical about hunting for candy stuffed eggs and an Easter basket left by an Easter Bunny that just has me counting down the days each year. I love to share my Easter Basket Ideas each year since I know some people are stumped at what to put inside. These are my favorite things to put in an Easter basket for toddlers.
Coloring Activities – One of the greatest gifts Annabelle ever received was a pad of blank paper and a box of crayons. She can color for hours, turning a white canvas into a work of art. Toddler style of course. We found this Fairy Coloring Kit while in Vermont and she carries it everywhere, so I’m ordered both girls the ballet version. If you have a little boy with a love for art, check out the Dinosaur Kit or the Boy’s Favorites Kit.
Pajamas – I always buy the girls a new pair of spring pajamas for Easter. Since they are constantly growing out of pjs, or staining them with breakfast, we go through sleepwear pretty quickly in our home.
Puppets – I borrowed a puppet from my niece for an activity with the kids and they didn’t want to give it back. The Easter Bunny is either bringing my daughters a set of finger puppets or hand puppets as a way to encourage imaginative play and storytelling.
Clay or Playdoh –Ailey isn’t allowed to use Playdoh just yet because she still thinks its a delicacy, but Annabelle loves it. Our entire collection is dried out, so the Big Bunny is going to bring more. If you’re not a play-doh fan, then try Model Magic. We love to swirl colors together.
Treats – I love to find bunny themed treats to put in the basket from the bunny himself – so Annie’s Bunny Snacks and Annie’s Fruit Snacks are a staple. Other items the girls (and I) love: mini Lara bars, Sweet Tart Chicks, Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs.
Cups, Silverware, Plates – Another item my kids go through like it’s their job are plates, cups, and silverware. It’s easy to grab the seasonal items at Target because they’re cute, inexpensive, and kids love them.
Easter basket ideas for kids should not be frustrating to come up with. Look in your local dollar spot at Target or on Amazon for ideas. Small toys, candy or treats, and even a new outfit is a good idea for an Easter present for toddlers.
