Building the Ultimate Easter Basket

Posted by on

Easter is coming up quicker than you think! If you’re stumped on ideas for this year’s Easter baskets, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading for some inspiration for building the ultimate Easter basket.

Easter Basket

You can’t build an Easter basket without the basket…or can you? This is the year to think outside the basket and use a fun alternative that kids will enjoy. Plus, a lot of our ideas can be reused and enjoyed for longer than just Easter morning! Here are some of our favorites:

  • Beach bucket
  • Watering can
  • Lunch box
  • Truck toy
  • Flexible storage basket
  • Flowerpot
  • Tote bag

Sugar Alternatives

If you’re looking to steer away from filling up a basket with sugary candies, focus on non-food alternatives! Yes, kids love candy, but they also love toys and fun things to play with! We came up with a list of some fun toys and goodies for all kids to enjoy.

  • Walkie Chalk
  • Bubbles
  • Scrunchies and hair clips
  • Pop-its and fidgets
  • Playdough
  • Books and magazines
  • Mini stuffed animals
  • Small puzzles
  • Notepads or mini journals
  • Coloring books
  • Pens, markers, and crayons

For even more candy alternatives for kids of all ages, check out this article with a bunch of ideas. Of course, our favorite basket stuffer is Walkie Chalk because it’s fun for all ages, plus you can pick up an extra one so you can draw chalk alongside the kids!

The Sweet Stuff

You still need to have some sweet stuff in the Easter basket- is it even Easter without munching on your favorite candies?! You need to include these sweet treats in any Easter basket.

  • Chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies…all the chocolate
  • Jellybeans
  • Robin eggs
  • Peeps

Keep any possible allergies in mind if you’re making a basket for someone outside of your household. Dairy, gluten, and peanut allergies are among some of the most common in kids, so be mindful!

Bye, Bye Plastic Grass!

Traditional plastic Easter grass can get messy, and you’ll find it in every corner of your house for months to come. If you want to skip the mess this year, or you’re just looking for a more environmentally friendly alternative, then these options are for you!

  • Tissue paper or newspaper
  • Paper shreds
  • Pieces of fabric
  • Pom-poms
  • Or just go without!

Get creative with your Easter baskets this year by using some of these “out-of-the-basket” ideas!
