Practical Easter Basket Items Your Kids Will Love

Practical-Easter-Basket-Items

Hey everyone – are you all ready for Easter?  I am shocked, but happy to announce that I am actually ready a few weeks before Easter!  My April is C-R-A-Z-Y!  This upcoming weekend is my last semi-normal weekend for a while. Then we have Easter, then I’m gone for SNAP and then the next weekend we are moving!  So, as you can tell, I’m gonna be crazy this month!

When thinking about what to fill my kids Easter Baskets with – I’m sticking with the mentality of only getting them items that they actually need or would be a fun activity for them to do during quiet time.  I’m still over toys and them taking over my house!  My kids have plenty of them still!  So, I decided to share some of the items and ideas I came up with!  I hope it helps give you guys some fun ideas on what to add to your kids Easter Baskets!

    Such a great list of ideas! I like so many of these ideas better than toys, candy, etc.

    Great ideas. I’m always looking for something other than candy.

    I love this! I hate having junky easter toys lying around. So much better to put in stuff that’s useful.
