Themed Easter Basket Ideas

Easter baskets, Easter Egg Hunts, Easter Parties and so much more fun for this wonderful holiday!  Holidays usually include lots of treats.  I have always wanted to minimize this when possible, so instead of filling our children’s Easter Baskets with candy I created fun themes.   I also fill our Easter Eggs for our morning hunt with stickers, erasers, and money.  They don’t even notice that they haven’t gotten tons of chocolate candy!

Themed Easter Basket Ideas

Here are three of my favorite themes and what I put in the baskets.  Oh, and I always throw in an Easter book and chocolate bunny!  Affiliate links included to make your Easter Baskets easy!

Transportation Everywhere:

This one was adorable when my son was a toddler.  He LOVED it!

*To keep costs down, the $1 store carries books, cars, and puzzles.  I also shopped second-hand children’s stores to find trains, tracks and stations.

Spring is Here:

I’ve done this one a few years in a row because it’s so super cute!

  • Magnifying glass
  • Kite

*  The $1 store carries gardening tools, watering cans, insect cages, butterfly nets, magnifying glasses, even binoculars.  Target also carries many of these items in the $1 bin this time of year.

Craft Crazy:

My kids love crafts and I hate buying craft supplies constantly, so this was a perfect solution.

  • Craft kits {even the $1 store has toddler friendly ones}
  • Googly eyes
  • Stickers
  • Glitter
  • Coloring books
  • Foam cut outs and stickers

* Many of these items can be found at the $1 store, but I do warn that the quality is not as good and you will end up having to re-buy many of the products.  I found is was less expensive to buy the Crayola brand the first time.  The googly eyes, stickers, glitter, coloring books, foam cut outs and small craft kits are great buys from the $1 store!
