To Play

Easter is just around the corner. If you're scrambling for ideas, check out these awesome ideas for Stuffing those Easter baskets. Plus, none of these include candy!

  • Fairy Garden – We tried out the My Fairy Garden Nature Cottage and it’s wonderful. Not only did my daughter learned a little gardening skills by planting the magic seeds but she could also play with the fairy. The hard part is waiting for everything to sprout!
  • Stepping Stone – Paint your own stepping stone. Perfect for the garden!
  • Mad Matter Dough – This isn’t your regular dough! This one feels so soft and never drives. My kids absolutely love this.
  • Playfoam – Another great alternative to play dough.
  • Chalk – Kids (and adults) love drawing with chalk. Write a few inspirational messages, play hopscotch, or make chalk art. Take your chalk art to the next level by getting chalk rollers. Make it fun with these egg shaped chalk
  • LEGO – So many choices but this bunny one looks fun.
  • 5 Second Rule Junior – Have what it takes to think on your feet? It’s a lot harder than it looks. 5 Second Rule Junior is super fun!
  • Stacktopus – Can you stack cups with silly sea fingers on? Stacktopus is for  you then!
  • Harry Potter – Basilisks & Broomsticks – Snakes and Ladders meet Harry Potter in this mini version with magnetic pieces. Perfect for travelling!
  • Charades for Kids – This version of Charades for Kids makes it easier for the youngest to participate. if you can’t read, there are pictures for them to act it out.

Something PRACTICAL

I always try to fill their Easter baskets with something useful. Somehow things placed in baskets seem more special and parents won’t have to spend any more money then needed. A definite win-win for sure!

  • Non-toxic nail polish. My girl LOVES her nail polish, but I’m not so fond of the chemicals. Enter Piggy Paints, safe, non-toxic nail polishes available in a rainbow of colors. This Funny Bunny gift set is just too adorable!
  • Kid’s apron – This apron is just too cute! You can use this for cooking, art projects, or gardening.
  • Toothbrush – Surprisingly, getting electric toothbrushes were a big hit for my kids. And since then, they’ve been cavity-free and actually enjoy brushing their teeth!

 

More items:

  • Bunny PJs
  • Hair accessories (headbands, bows, clips, hair ties, or hats)
  • Socks
  • Get ready for the rainy weather. You can’t go wrong with rain boots or rain coats.
  • Warmer weather will be here before we know it. Grab some items for the beach or pool. How about new beach towels, sandals, sunglasses, swim goggles, hoodie swim, towel, or toys for the water?

Books

How can you go wrong with including books in their Easter baskets?  I continually scour the bookshelves at thrift stores throughout the year for holiday books.

  • The Easter Egg Story – To celebrate the true meaning of Easter, we’ve tried The Easter Story Egg. Count down to Easter by reading a story then unveil one of the wooden eggs from the nested eggs. Another way is to read the entire book and unveil all the eggs at once. This is one of our favorite Easter traditions!
  • Everybunny Counts – Looking for a new cute book, we absolutely adored “Everybunny Counts.” 
  • Pinkalicious: Eggstraordinary Eggs – Pinkalicious fans will love this Easter Bunny tale that takes them on a Easter scavenger hunt!

Something to EAT

I’m not sure about you, but my kids LOVE to eat snacks (sometimes more than candy!) Include some of their favorite snacks or try something new. Think outside the box when packaging them.
