Easter is right around the corner, like right around the corner. And in true Danielle fashion, I am always behind on getting my ideas out to you and creating the perfect Easter basket for my kids. There is nothing more self deprecating than scrolling through Instagram and seeing these unattainable Easter baskets. So I’m here to let you in on a little secret; your child does not give a bunny’s tail what is in that Easter Basket or how much it cost. So this year; I am giving you affordable Easter Basket Ideas for your kids.
I am also not big on putting a ton of candy in their Easter Basket so I try to find them little things that I know they will use and enjoy not just consume. I got these baskets from Target and put tissue paper in the bottom since the paper shreds make a mess everywhere! All around, without the $10 gift cards to Target that I stuck in their baskets, each basket cost less than $30.
Easter Basket Ideas for Kids
My kids love bubbles and these bubble wands are their absolute favorite!
With warmer weather coming, my kids love to play with chalk outside so I got the cutest little chalk containers at Target in the Dollar Spot for their Easter Baskets. If you can’t find these there are so many other options you can grab.
Books are always a good option to throw in an Easter basket for kids. My kids love to read so any chance I can, I encourage and develop that love.
Educational workbooks and fun questions to build up your child’s brain power! Perfect for any age through grade school.
You can never go wrong with extra socks, we are constantly losing them for the littlest over here. I stuck some in her Easter Basket.
Fill those eggs with little treats. My daughter loves putting money in her piggy bank so she gets some coins. My son loves candy so I put some jelly beans in them.
Easter Baskets for an older boy are always hard. I found a fun MineCraft wallet for him so stuck it in his Easter Basket.
Avery loves sunglasses so she is getting a new pair. I grab then from Target because they are less expensive and
We are constantly losing these or destroying them so adding them to the kid’s Easter Basket is only logical. Especially with warmer weather (hopefully) coming soon.
While I try to limit the amount of candy that goes into their baskets, a little bit is not such a terrible idea. Plus when they don’t eat it, I can!
So what do you think about these Easter Basket Ideas? Remember, you really don’t need to spend a ton of money on items for Easter baskets. After all, I can’t even recall what my parents gave me in my Easter Baskets when I was my children’s ages and I seem to be doing just fine in life.
Happy Easter everyone!
Until next time!
