You guys! Somehow in all of this madness, Easter snuck up on us!! It is just a couple of weeks away!! It might feel like an added stress, but I think it is going to be just the distraction and fun we all need! We had this post scheduled a little bit later, but with all the shipping delays right now and things selling out, we wanted to get you the ideas early so you can shop now!! So below you will find ideas for everyone from toddlers to teens and some perfect candy free ideas for stuffing those Easter Eggs!!
:: clothes – sandals | pajamas | hat | tee
:: arts + crafts – sticker book | playdoh | how to draw book | paint dotters | bracelet kit
:: swim + beach – swimsuit | flip flops | goggles | pool floaties | sunglasses | towel
:: outside – bubbles | sidewalk chalk | squirt guns | velcro catch game
Ok first up is the younger kids! They are so fun to think of Easter Basket ideas for because they just get so excited about everything! One thing that helps me stay organized when buying and to not overbuy, is to break it down into categories. These are the ones we are doing this year!
:: ARTS + CRAFTS
We all know that we need allllll the things to keep our little people entertained while we are stuck at home. I love finding ideas that keep their brains thinking too, and they double as great Easter basket stuffers! We already got this Paint By Sticker book and they are all loving it! These how to draw books are an awesome affordable idea that sparks their creativity too.
:: SWIM + BEACH
While we can’t escape to the beach quite yet, we can still start dreaming of summer! And we cannot wait for it to get warm enough to spend all our days in the pool. Swim/Beach ideas are usually so affordable too! From goggles + floaties to a new swimsuit + flip flops, we love this category!
We could all use some fresh air right now, so finding small affordable activities that get them outside and moving make for great Easter Basket ideas. We love the go to bubbles + sidewalk chalk, but are excited to switch it up with some more interactive ideas this year, like the squirt guns or catch game.

Now let’s talk teens Easter Basket’s. When you first think about it, they seem hard, but they are actually so fun to fill! I honestly feel like I’m just thinking of ideas I would love! We broke this one down into some categories to help simplify too!
:: SELF CARE
We could all use a little self care, especially during this crazy time. I think it has got to be so hard for teens to be away from their friends and normal every day life. Self care can be anything from a favorite new lip gloss to their favorite nail polish.
I’m sure they are all getting plenty of learning in with all the online school and homework. But I thought this was a fun category in a different way. More focused on learning about themselves. This could be a how to book or gratitude journal.

:: EASTER EGG STUFFERS
Last but not least is the egg stuffers. We don’t love giving our kids a basket full of candy. We love to do things like goldfish crackers or fruit snacks for the treats. Another fun idea a friend gave me that we are going to try is filling them with coupons. Things like “get out of laundry”, “chore free day”, “stay up an extra 30 minutes”, or “ice cream run with mom”. Simple things they will love in coupon form!

I hope these Easter Basket ideas were helpful for you, and help bring a little bit of excitement and joy into a crazy time of life! What are your favorite Easter Basket ideas?
