Fun Easter Basket Ideas I Love (and Your Kids Will Too!)
Spring is here (finally!!), which means Easter isn’t too far behind. Fortunately, it’s pretty late this year, but it’ll be here before we know it (and probably before I’m prepared?).
Easter baskets are just part of this special holiday that celebrates Jesus, but they’re just so much fun for kids.
I have to tell you…My mom really spoiled us as kids. She went ALL OUT for every. single. holiday. Truly – I learned from the best!
If you’re looking to stray away from the typical candy and bunny additions to your kids’ Easter baskets this year, this list of fun Easter basket ideas was meant for you. I rounded up a bunch of fun and unique items for babies, kids, and teens to fill their baskets with this year.
Let’s start with the basket itself. I think the basket is one of the most exciting parts of the Easter basket tradition because kids tend to hold onto that basket to reuse each year. If you’re looking for something special to celebrate every Easter with your child, check out these adorable baskets:
If you’re crafty, you might even crochet your own! This crochet Easter basket pattern from Crochet 265 Knit Too is super adorable.
Cute Easter Basket Ideas for Babies and Toddlers
Babies and toddlers are a little too young to go on egg hunts and dye Easter eggs, but they’re never too young for an adorable basket filled with their favorite goodies. For this age group, you can add basket items like:
- Puff treats and teething snacks
- A cozy blanket
- A stuffed animal to snuggle
- Easy-to-grasp toys
- Sippy cups or bottles
I think these items are so perfect for a basket for little ones:
Fun Easter Basket Ideas for Kids
This is probably the best age group for Easter (or at least the easiest when it comes to finding goodies to fill a basket!). Preschool and elementary-aged kiddos usually have a lot of fun with Easter traditions, and they’re still at the age where play is number one, so it’s not challenging finding little things they’ll love.
Add some fun options like:
- Art supplies
- Board or card games
- A journal or notebook
- Clothes or accessories
- Sports balls or equipment
- Dolls or action figures
Here are some more ideas for boys and girls:

Unique Easter Basket Ideas for Pre-Teens and Teens
The pre-teen and teen years are…interesting, to say the least. Kids don’t really play with stuff much at this age, and they’re usually past seeing the magic of the holidays like they did when they were little. My boys are getting older, too, so I’ve had to get more creative with their baskets the past couple of years.
A few ideas for your teen’s basket:
- Gift cards to their favorite stores
- Movie tickets
- Gas money/cards (if they drive)
- Their favorite snacks or gum
- Clothes, jewelry, and accessories
- Cosmetics, skin care, and hair products
- Art supplies
- Phone or tablet case
- Athletic clothing
- Journals or notebooks
- Video game
- Wallet or purse
