You guys, what a FANTASTIC time of year. Winter is slowly fading, and springtime is creeping around the corner.
Which means… preparations for Easter!
You’re juggling travel logistics, meal prep, planning what your kids are wearing (hello, smocked dresses!), and last but not least, making sure your kids have an Easter basket.
If you’re like some parents (ahem), you wait until the last minute to grab a few pastel-colored items from Walmart and call it good. Which is not usually a problem until I’m trying to cook, get clothes ready, and put baskets together frantically on Saturday night.
But this will be the year we get ahead of it! I’ve rounded up some of the most popular (and best rated!) Easter goody ideas to include in your child’s basket.
Make sure you order from Amazon in enough time (if you’re not a Prime member), and you’ll be golden! Happy shopping, friends.
10 Easter Basket Ideas for Babies & Toddlers
These are super cool if you have a young one who is just beginning to develop fine motor skills and learning how to grip. Plus, they are egg-shaped and toddlers will love using them! Oh, and most importantly – WASHABLE.
A great mix of both bunnies and eggs to draw with, and a perfect activity to take along to Grandma’s house on Easter. Let the kids draw and the adults eat (and drink!)! This pack has multiple colors and easy for toddlers and babies to grip.
I love, love, LOVE the Berenstain Bear stories – I read them to both my toddler and infant every chance I get. So the fact that they have a story around Easter makes me so happy!
This set is adorable and perfect for playing “salon” with any toddler girl (or boy)! What I love about this set? It’s non-toxic, water-based and made with natural materials. The pastel colors are perfect for any Easter occasion!
These are a gimme, I know it. But every Easter basket needs something sweet, and anything from Annie’s can’t be too bad, since they have stellar ingredients. Organic Bunny fruit snacks are a win on a day filled with sweets already!
Okay, who doesn’t love Play-Doh? And the fact that you can grab some Easter egg play-doh shaped containers make them even more fun. We have a ton of play-doh around the house already, but I’d get a set of these and leave them at Grandma’s after the Easter celebration ;).
This is a perfect gift for reminding them what the holiday is all about! This little lamb comes with the Bible verse “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” What a fabulous reminder to have around the house.
Bubble machines rock, and I think this one is perfect. This is a great idea to give as one gift to all your kids, and it’s ready to set out anytime. Perfect for little ones who love to chase bubbles!
This one’s a best seller on Amazon, and I can see why. It’s a toy and shape-sorter in one. The eggs squeak when you press down on them, but you also have to place them in their correct setting (each one is shaped differently).
This one is another gimme – anything Melissa and Doug is usually a win, and this bunny looks like the perfect companion. It’s soft, plush, and a great companion to add to the stuffed animal collection!
