Spring has officially sprung, and we’re only a couple weeks away from Easter! This makes my second year following this Easter basket tradition for my boys, so I figured I’d post some ideas since I got a few requests regarding so on Instagram last month.
I tend to search for things I know will actually be put to use, and won’t be dumped or forgotten about a day later. Most of the things I found were from the dollar section at Target, excluding the Paint Poster booklets. Those I found at Michaels as well as the natural excelsior to fill the baskets with. (Baskets were found at the Target dollar section back in January, but Michaels has some similar ones linked here.)
Goodies in their Easter basket:
Easter book, Mickey Mouse & Paw Patrol Play Pack Grab & Go, Water Paint Posters, Pj Masks bandaids, Sidewalk chalk, Bunny Ears, Carrot Decoration, Kinder Joy Egg, Hearth and Hand Easter Gifting Toy, and their favorite action figure at the moment.
Now, I will say I was a bit obsessed with Hearth and Hand’s Easter Gifting Collection for kids when I first saw it. So many cute toys that would make the perfect addition for any Easter basket! I went for the Wooden Toy Blocks and the Bunny Pull Along Toy.
You can find the rest of their collection here: Hearth & Hand Easter Gifting Collection
As we all know, Easter isn’t actually based on some bunny, and the true reason behind it all is Jesus’ resurrection. I knew for sure I wanted to add a book in each one of their baskets, so I ended up going with something that would help my boys learn the true celebration of Easter.
Books to the left were found at Hobby Lobby, and The Story of Easter is from Target.
Other Spring Books we’ve enjoyed over the last couple of weeks:
I hope you found some of these Easter basket ideas helpful, and I wish you all a great Easter weekend with your loved ones!
