Easter is coming up which means it’s time to get your kid’s baskets ready! I’ve come up with lots of ideas to share with the Easter Bunny that will not leave your kids bouncing off the walls from a sugar high nor vomiting all over their Sunday best! We hope these non candy kids Easter basket ideas are a hit with your kiddos!
For me, the holidays are all about the traditions you create with your family. You may not remember what you got in your Easter basket growing up, but chances are you remember all the holiday traditions you shared with loved ones. Some of my favorite holiday memories I have from my childhood include meatball soup every Halloween, digging for the $100 bill in our Christmas stockings, frosting sugar cookies with cousins on Easter, and 4th of July in Laguna Beach.
As far as the Easter baskets go, I do recall that my siblings and I always got a new swim suit in ours. That was a fun traditon I will be starting with my own kids this year.
For me, this holiday isn’t all about the Easter basket, so I don’t usually go crazy. My theory is this: try and fill the basket with items your kids actually need or will use. My kids are young enough (2 and 4) that putting new socks and underwear in their Easter basket is still exciting to them, so why not?
I did have fun shopping around and filling this big basket with fun stuff just to share with you all. This is a thrift store basket I simply spray painted and put a cute bow on. How easy is that?
