Easter is just around the corner and as a mom of five I like to plan ahead, so that I can create meaningful baskets for each one. I love using Easter baskets but I also love using a little untraditional baskets, such as cute bags for girls to fill them up or rain boots to fill up for boys.
I have five kids — 3 boys and 2 girls ages 1-8 years old so I am going share different basket ideas you can use too.
Growing up we didn’t have Easter baskets, our traditions are a little different and while it’s important for us to keep our traditions I love the idea of a basket with small thoughtful gifts.
I am not big on filling up baskets with lots of candy, or making elaborative baskets. I go simple with the kids baskets and like to use things that are useful to each kid. I have rounded up 100+ basket fillers for you here.
My favorite basket fillers include:
— Spring/summer pajamas
— Sandals/rain boots
— A fun activity to do
— Board game
— Coloring book/coloring pencils
— Hair accessories (bow, hat, baseball cap, etc.)
— A fun craft to do
Easter Basket for my five year old
Basket filler: book, bunny doll, Easter eggs for craft, Yum Earth lollipop & fruit snack, Pez, hair bows, magnetic princess dress up activity, and spring pajama.
Full disclosure: She also has the jelly bean bag in pink that I was going to use, but she has been asking for a basket for her kitchen and she loves bunnies, so I grabbed this one for her.
Easter basket for my two year old
Basket filler: jelly bean bag, hair bow, Cuddle and Kind doll, book, Yum Earth lollipop & fruit snack, Easter egg, Dot It activity, and spring pajama.
You can find these and many more basket fillers in my Amazon storefront, under “Easter Baskets”.
Hope this helps you fill your kids Easter baskets with fun and meaningful gifts. I link so many great items here for you as an inspiration but by no means do you need to feel like you need it all. Follow me on Instagram @mrs.vesnatanasic and Tik Tok see more fun ideas and home decor!
