15 Adorable Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers
Include gifts that won't induce a sugar rush, such as stuffed animals, musical eggs, and more.
Easter is a joyous occasion, and one that's a delight to celebrate. Along with honoring the meaning behind Easter with an intimate group of loved ones this year, one way to ensure the little ones get excited for the holiday is by surprising them on that special Sunday morning with an Easter basket. While most baskets are filled with everything from sugary treats to salty snacks, we have Easter basket ideas perfect to give to toddlers that are sure to wow without leaving them bouncing off the walls.
For your Sunday festivities, opt for Easter baskets made special for toddlers that feature goodies they can wear or play with. One of our favorite ideas? Easter crayons. Handmade pastel varieties make for the perfect basket stuffers that toddlers can use to draw and color—even long after the sun has set on Easter dinner. The same goes for musical Easter eggs. You can hide these essentials for toddlers to find on the day-of and beyond, sharing the joy of Easter for months to come.
Of course, we're also sharing some classic Easter basket ideas for toddlers, like stuffed animals. Kids will love to play with a lamb or bunny—both fitting for the holiday and just as sweet to keep with their other toys after the festivities are over. Bunny ears are must-haves for big kids and little ones, alike, so your toddler will be hopping with joy to see a pair in their basket, too. Need more inspiration?
