Easter is officially right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about those Easter basket items for the littles in your life. When is comes to my littles easter baskets I try to keep it to things that they need or something consumable so I’m not bringing a bunch of random junk or trinkets into our home. Over the past year I’ve gone a lot more excessive in getting my kids trinkets and it was out of my element. I’m pretty sure I was overcompensating for the pandemic and my kids being newly homeschooled.
But I’m ready to get back to our low waste lifestyle and back track on what we want our holidays to look like. We do major holiday a little extra but we can easily do that without buying a lot of junk. One of our fun things to do is hide larger Easter eggs with fun toys inside but we always try to keep them to toys my kids need replaced or for spring. They don’t have any water guns or really any water toys since we moved so I think I’ll let that be their really fun toy to help kick off spring and all the outside fun.
For the items that will be going into their Easter baskets I want to keep it more simple and as low waste as possible. So as I was writing up a list of ideas I figured I should share it here for any other moms or dads looking for some simple basket ideas. So below I’m sharing 20 Easter gift ideas for the littles in your life.
So let’s get to it…
- Side walk chalk
- Rain boots
- Swim suit
- Flip flops
- Beach toys
- Beach towel
- Gardening seeds
- Gardening tools
- Water bottles
- Reusable snack pouch
- Homemade playdoh
- Bubbles (homemade w/ Diy wands)
- Art supplies
I hope this list was able to help you find some fun ideas of what to include in your children’s Easter baskets this year. For the Playdoh and bubbles I highly recommend making them yourself for a true low waste option. There’s tons of playdoh recipes out there and bubbles could easily be made with their body wash or dish soap. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. For the bubble wand you could easily make some from pipe cleaners or use the screw seal to a mason jar top. Get creative!
Thank you for stopping by and let me know what was your favorite thing on this list or something that you would add?
Until next time, live a life you love!
