With Easter just a few days away why not add something more than candy to your kid’s basket. Check out some of your ideas for making your child’s Easter basket fun, creative, and unique.
Gift Baskets for Toddlers
Toddlers are just beginning to learn about Easter and what it means to receive an Easter basket. Keep it simple with brightly colored plastic eggs. In the case of toddlers, you don’t need to fill the eggs with anything because anything small enough to fit in an egg can be considered a choking hazard. In addition to plastic eggs, you can include Easter themed soft books, building blocks and stuffed animals.
Gift Baskets for Preschoolers
When filling an Easter basket for a preschooler, first, think about what kind of container you’d like to use. Certainly a traditional basket works well, but there are lots of other treat holders you can use. Consider filling up something that your little one can play with or put to use later like:
play grocery cart
Preschoolers and Elementary Kids
If your little one is head over heels for craft projects and coloring an excellent idea is to arts and crafts themed Easter Basket full of special goodies. Crayons and coloring books are a must. Include items such as markers, finger paint and/or paint and paintbrushes. You can’t forget the construction paper in a variety of wonderful colors.
From infant to teenager, books are perfect Easter-basket filler. This may be a clichéd but the truth is that books are one of the best gifts that you can ever give to children on any occasion. Books help to develop a habit of reading in children that they can pick up as a hobby. Reading helps to expand the mind and creates a sense of curiosity and thirst to find out more. For toddlers you may want to choose cloth books or board books with thick pages and bright colorful pictures. Preschool and early elementary students enjoy books about animals, other children or their favorite television characters. For older children and teens, pick the newest book in a series they enjoy or a subscription to a favorite magazine.
