Easter Basket Items

When making Easter baskets, keep in mind such things as colorful pencils, fancy erasers, sugar free candies, cute little stuffed animals, flavored lip balm or gloss, crayons, colored pencils, modeling clay or Play-dough (or make your own).


My sister, for years, has raved over the great items I've give her children in their Easter baskets (things she'd never thought of). She said the what she likes best of the things I send are because they don't rot her kids' teeth.

I always include a new toothbrush in my kids Easter basket.

Easter baskets don't have to be loaded with candy. I always put in a chocolate bunny and a little candy, but add things like jewelry, cosmetics, new markers or fancy pencils, small books or journals or scratch pads, toys or games. Maybe some new swim goggles or flip flops. Instead of the traditional basket, a new tote bag, sand pail, or plastic crate are practical ideas.

Great ideas! Our 2 children ea have a special large Easter basket that gets filled each year. It wouldn't be Easter w/o the typical Easter type candy so they get some chocolate eggs and jelly beans and such; however I will also put some cereal bars, little bags of snacks or crackers, juice boxes, etc. I also like to put some toys, school supplies and even a new summer outfit or swim suit. I start buying for Easter right after Christmas when everything is on sale! I am an avid garage sale shopper and even find some nice Easter basket items at the sales!

This year I am making Easter Baskets for my son, and my godson. I am making each basket out of a sand pail, because lets face it, the kids don't care what the basket looks like, and a sand pail can be reused. I'm not including very much candy. What I am adding is crayons and markers, coloring books, plain paper for drawing on, side walk chalk, a movie, a few books, bubbles, water guns, toy cars, and a few sand toys to be used with the pail.


And of course I'll add some plastic eggs. and since we go to the park every year I will add some snacks and a few juice boxes so they don't run out of energy.

That home made dough could be put in matching color plastic eggs, what a great suggestion!

My husband and I decided to make Easter baskets for our kids. We went to a few dollar stores and came up with some cute baskets. We haven't added candy yet, but that won't be our main focus. One is a princess basket and the other is a Tinkerbell basket. The basket is an adorable sun hat from the dollar store. I will put a pic on so you can see a basket. They were made for about $6.00 each.
