Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Looking for Easter basket ideas for babies or young toddlers? Start here: Simple Baby Easter Basket Ideas
1. Sticker and Activity Books
Books of any kind are a great, simple idea for your toddler’s Easter basket. Reading to your toddler can help with language development, communication, and learning colors, number, letters, early reading skills, and more!
As my toddlers get older I also love to do activity books or sticker books, too. These types of books can help with pincer grasp, hand-eye coordination- and early writing skills.
Here are some of our favorites:
- Animal Ultimate Sticker Book
- Space Ultimate Sticker Book
- Wipe Clean Maze Book
- Search & Find Animal Friends
- The Rainbow Fish
- We Don’t Eat our Classmates
2. Fun Markers or Paint Sticks
To go along with an activity book or just as another individual item, I love putting some fun markers or a set of our favorite tempura paint sticks in my toddler’s Easter basket. Be sure to choose washable markers or paint sticks!
3. New Toothbrush
Most children get their first tooth between 6-12 months and will have all of their teeth around 3 years old (this is an average of course and no matter how many teeth your toddler has you will need to make sure they brush their teeth well).
I love to use holidays as a time to get my kid’s new toothbrushes! It’s a practical gift that they still get excited about so it’s a win-win for everyone. Our favorite toothbrushes for toddlers and preschoolers are quip kids electric toothbrushes .
4. Fun Spring Outfit
A new shirt or outfit is another practical gift for your toddler’s Easter basket that they will still be excited about! Choose a shirt with their favorite character or in their favorite color or a cute bunny themed outfit. My boy’s are getting this fun shirt this year and my daughter is getting this adorable pink & orange romper.
For some fresh ideas, my favorite places to buy kid’s clothes are Target, Old Navy, Cotton On, Carter’s, and Little Sleepies pjs. You really can’t go wrong when gifting clothing! A fun pair of socks or shoes could also be a great easter basket gift.
5. Snacks or Treats
Here are a few more favorites that would also work well in your toddler’s Easter basket:
- Natural Play Doh (this is our FAVORITE brand)
- Animal Figurine Set
- Crayola Mess Free Marker Set
- Melissa & Doug On the Go Water Wow
- Wooden Apple Threading Toy
