With Valentine’s Day now behind us, I’m excited to start thinking about Easter! What are some of your favorite Easter traditions? Growing up, we always celebrated Easter on 2 days. Saturday we go to do the FUN stuff, like hunting for easter eggs, parties with family and friends, and of course, eating delicious food! Sunday was always a quieter day for remembering and celebrating the resurrection of the Savior. I love that we got to have the best of both worlds. When I think of Easter as a child, I remember fondly homemade potato salad, easter baskets filled with prizes and candy, and fun with my family. We had so much fun doing our post on stocking stuffers for kids, I thought it only appropriate to also do an EASTER version! If you’re looking for creative ideas for your kids Easter baskets, you’ve come to the right place! From tots to toddlers, I got you covered! Here are my favorite Easter basket stuffer ideas.
Board Books (Here are some great ideas for age 0-2, and here are some for age 3+.)
Bunny Booties (these are so stinkin’ cute!)
Stuffed animals (webkinz are always a hit at my house!)
Sunny Patch Toys (My kids like the Sunny Patch Bag of Bugs, Lizards, Snakes, and Sea Animals.)
Finger Puppets (My favorites are these animal finger puppets, people finger puppets, or a combo of both.)
Bubbles (more for age 18 months+)
Scratch Magic (love these for church too)
Water Wow Coloring Books (great for no-mess on the go!)
Do A Dot Markers These work great with wall mural painting. Also here are over 200 free printables you can use with them!
Easter Lego Friend Sets– (Bunny, Puppy, Fawn, & Little foul)
Gel pens (My 10 year old daughter loves these and my 17 year old sister loves these)
Hair pins and accessories
Deodorant and/or Body Soap
Razor for girls and boys (older teens)
Rabbit Ear Bow Ties (only $3.56 for 10 of them! So cute!)
Jean Tats (My 10 year old daughter absolutely loves these! They are temporary tattoos for jeans but wash of in a normal cycle in the laundry. Yay! NO more stickers stuck to the dryer!)
Our mom always gave the teenagers in the house green eggs that had money on the inside 😉
Of course, there is always the easter basket stuffer that can’t be forgotten…Jelly Beans! If you’re like me, it can’t be just any old boring jelly bean. My favorite kind of jelly beans are the ones that have a ton of different unusual flavors. I’ve been buying Gimbal’s jelly beans at Walmart and they satisfy my craving for variety and taste delicious!! My kids have fun closing their eyes, popping one in their mouth, and trying to guess the flavor. Give ’em a try this Easter!
Happy Easter Everyone!
