Easter is right around the corner and that means it’s time to put together those Easter baskets! Growing up, like most, my Easter basket was always filled with lots of candy, but for my boys, I choose to fill their baskets with small toys that I know they will enjoy for more than one day. Here’s a list of some of the goodies that the Easter Bunny will be bringing them this year, as well as a few other Easter basket ideas:
Easter Basket Ideas
1. Find It Games
My boys first saw a Find It Game at their dentist’s office and they were so bummed that we had to leave before they were able to find everything hidden within the beads. They’re going to be so excited to see that the Easter bunny has brought them each their own!
Both of my boys are really into games these days and we all really love playing them together as a family. This year, one of my boys will be getting Charades Kids On Stage and the other will be getting Peaceable Kingdom’s Silly Animals 4 Up! Some other games that they really love are Minions Trouble, Mouse Trap, and Old Maid. They also love memory games.
3. Lego Minifigures
What kid doesn’t love Legos? And of course, they need “guys” to go along with them. I purchased a couple generic minifigure sets on Amazon.
I absolutely love crafting with my boys so when I saw this Wind Chime kit on Amazon, I had to get it! I know my boys are going to have so much fun creating these, and I’m going love listening to them for years to come!
My 5 year old has just started reading small books and my 4yr old is learning his sight words. This year, the Easter bunny is bringing each of the boys a boxed book set – First Little Reader Parent Pack and Sight Word Readers Parent Pack.
Along with Easter, comes breezy Spring days! Kites are a definitely must have for the Spring season!
7. Chia Pet
Chia Pets are so much fun! Your little one will absolutely love watching them grow!
Puzzles are always a huge hit in this house and Ravensburger Puzzles are by far my favorite! So many beautiful pictures and such great quality!
9. Small Figurines
We recently took the boys to see the new movie, Zootopia, and the boys loved it, so the Easter bunny is bringing them each a set of Zootopia figurines. Amazon is currently running a buy one get one 50% off sale on select Zootopia toys!
10. Gardening Tool Kit
My boys actually received this Gardening Tool Kit last year and it was a huge hit. They really enjoy helping Mommy in the garden and also love digging for bugs and worms on their own. This kit is extremely well made and I love the bag that comes along with it!
I hope you’ve found the ideas helpful! Of course, if you need just one more idea, Pick-Ease also makes a great addition to an Easter basket! Have you seen our new Spring pack yet? Happy Easter, Everyone!
