Creating fun Easter baskets for my kids is something I look forward to every spring! Each year, I create a fun theme around their personalities and have so much fun hand selecting all of the items and pulling them all together.
I have been known to go a bit over the top with this in the past, but this year, we are focusing on experiences for the kids, so I wanted to be functional with my choices so each item has a purpose…while also keeping things fun for the kids! The best part? Everything you see here is available at Walmart.
How cute is this cloth-lined basket? I love that we can repurpose it in our “virtual school at home” area after Easter! Inside, I lined the basket with one pack of the “grass” filler. First, I got Andrew a new pair of flip flops. The kids are all starting swimming lessons soon (finally!). The teal item with the striped egg on it is a new DVD. I also grabbed a pack of Jumbo crayons and tied them into a bundle (kind of like carrots). The kids love to color with new crayons and these are a fun size! Next, I chose a new little plushie for each of the kids. Andrew loves green, so I got him a little frog. I love that they still love to sleep with their stuffed animals so getting a new one now and then is fun for them! And now, my favorite part….. the treats! I chose everyone’s favorite, Cadbury Creme Eggs, Cadbury Caramel Eggs, Cadbury Mini Eggs (that I filled several colored plastic eggs with!), and a couple of REESE’S Stuffed with Pieces Eggs.
Everything fits perfectly into the basket and looks so fun and colorful!
All of the kids have the same colorful basket this year. I love that it is a gender-neutral print that can also be reused later on. Aidan also got the same items as his brother: a DVD for the car, a pair of flip flops for the pool, a bundle of new crayons, a bunny plushie (since I call him my little bunny), and treats.
I am excited that the boys won’t be fighting over who got what since they got the same things!
Avalynn’s basket is a little bit different. She has a LOT of shoes, so I found her a cute and colorful rainbow dress instead. This girl will wear 4-5 different dresses each day! It has pockets and was only $5! I filled her basket with the same items as the others. She is definitely a girl who LOVES her chocolate so I know she will be so excited to try the Cadbury Eggs and REESE’S Eggs.
That’s all for our simple, functional, and FUN Easter baskets this year! I feel so excited to have this checked off my list already and give my kids baskets with a little of everything.
Now I can focus on planning the experience that will go perfectly with their baskets. Maybe a movie night at the local drive-in? A picnic at the beach? Or some other fun place to enjoy their yummy treats! Of course, we’ll have to officially celebrate much later due to recent events. But these baskets will be a fun way to brighten their day at home!
