Curious what you should put in your child's Easter basket this year?
Here's a few creative ideas to get you started, courtesy of The Mom Creative, who composed a list of 101 things (yes, 101!) to put in an Easter basket. Here's the first 25.
- Books (A few ideas: That's Not My Bunny or Pat the Bunny for a baby; The Runaway Bunny, A Beatrix Potter Treasury, The Parable Of The Lily and The Easter Story for toddlers and young children. I just ordered these last two books for Elias's basket – which is why they aren't in the picture!)
- The Jesus Storybook Bible (Every child needs a copy of this Bible. If your child is older, you might get their own bible with their name on the cover.)
- Candy (I'm not big on candy, but a big lollipop or a chocolate bunny – definitely a fun treat. PEZ dispensers are also awesome.)
- Coloring books (We always buy our coloring books at The Dollar Store. They have so many to choose from.)
- Silly putty (I used to love getting silly putty in my Easter basket!)
- Toothbrush (The Dollar Store has REALLY fun kids toothbrushes. Elias is obsessed with his Spiderman brush that we got there.)
- Kids watch (Again, The Dollar Store!)
- Small doll (I love Adeline's Baby Be Blessed doll)
- stuffed animal
- T-shirt (maybe one that is personalized)
- Puzzles (Melissa and Doug Puzzles are awesome)
- Superheros (Elias would love this Marvel Super Hero Mini Figure Set)
- Toy animals
- Small game
- Card games (Love this set of four Children's Card Games)
- Gift card (iTunes, Target, Borders, etc.)
- Paint or Do-A-Dot paints (we love to dot paint!)
- Plain wood, canvases or ceramics to paint
- Foam stickers and shapes (You can usually find these really cheap at craft stores)
- Bath soap
