When I was a kid, I remember getting an Easter basket filled to the brim with chocolate eggs and bunnies in all colours, flavours, shapes and sizes. Of course kids love getting chocolate from our Easter bunny friend, but parents, we know you'd much rather have a basket full of fun activities to keep kids busy during Easter weekend, rather than spend the next week chasing after the sugar rush!
That's why we've decided to help out our Easter bunny friend with a few non-candy Easter basket suggestions that kids are sure to love!
Fill your basket with some goodies to get out and enjoy that spring weather. Bubbles, jump ropes, playballs, sandbox and water table toys, sidewalk chalk and garden tools make great additions to your Easter basket.
A Cuddly Friend
From adorable plush bunnies to cute little finger puppets, adding a little plush to your Easter basket gives it that extra dose of Easter cuteness.
From sticker books to colouring books, paints, pencil crayons, and art kits; art activities are a great item to toss into an Easter basket and inspire some creativity and keep little ones entertained during the Easter holiday.
We love adding a book to kids Easter baskets. Spring themed books or Easter themed books featuring bunnies and chicks can help make the occasion festive while encouraging literacy.
Small bath toys such as bath bombs are one of our favourite additions to Easter baskets. We love our bath bombs from Loot Toy that are non-toxic, natural and colour the water, creating a full sensory experience. They're also the perfect size for basket stuffers.
