105 Ideas for an EPIC Toddler Easter Basket!

Does anybody else go ALL IN when it's time for Easter baskets? I LOVE loading them down with goodies for the kids -- but my number one goal is to AVOID the candy-palooza that is all too easy to fall into. Two years ago, I shared a post with ideas for Baby Boy's First Easter. If you have a little bitty boy OR girl at home, I totally recommend checking that one out!


Last year, I pulled a "Bad Mom" and ducked out for Easter weekend. I know. Shame on me for lounging by the pool with my bestie in the Caribbean while my husband tackled bowties and buckle shoes.

It was worth it.

This year, though, I'm staying in town and so excited to share this weekend with the kiddos! April will be filled with tons of Easter activities, heavily focused on the true reason for the celebration, so make sure to check back for fun ideas for sharing with your tot!


In the meantime, I'm busy building the most epic Easter baskets ever. Here's a Tip: Think of fun things your kiddos need and that you'd end up buying anyway. Then shove them in a basket for an extra fun-stuffed celebration! Know that our baskets are filled with tons of items that have been on our shopping list anyway, plus some other fun goodies the kids will go gaga over. I considered SO. MANY items this year. Any items with links are my personal recommendations (and a few from friends)! If there's a link, you can bet that I stand by that product. Items with asterisks (*) are the items that ended up in one or both of my kiddos' baskets! [Disclaimer: This post does contain affiliate links].

  2. Such a great idea! I hate having a ton of sweets in there. I usually throw in some fruit squeeze pouches instead. This year I'm doing mostly books. I love that you put their names on the baskets. Is that just felt and glue???

    1. THANK YOU! Yes. My kiddos go gaga over fruit pouches. That's a great idea!
      And yes! Just some felt I had at home and some hot glue! I considered using vinyl but thought my kiddos would appreciate the color and texture :)
