Toddler Easter Basket Fillers

Little kids love Easter – mostly because to them, it means a visit from the Easter bunny. They can’t wait under Easter morning until they can see what was left in their Easter basket.

It doesn’t matter how old the kids are – they still get excited about Easter baskets. It makes it such a fun holiday for them! The best part is seeing their faces on Easter day when they are looking through all of the new goodies that came in their Easter basket.

There are a couple different ways to do Easter baskets. The Easter bunny can bring their own basket for each kid with all of their Easter treats. Or you can have a special Easter basket for each kid that you use year after year. Then you leave it out the night before and the Easter bunny fills it up. This is what we do – then we don’t have to worry about finding a new basket each year. Ours are different colors for each child and have their names on them.

My little girl loves seeing if the Easter bunny leaves her a little note (which he usually does!) with her basket. It’s a great way to make them feel special on Easter morning. She also loves picking through her little brother’s basket too to see if there is anything she would like.

Finding the perfect additions to an Easter basket for 2 year old toddlers can be a challenge – you don’t want anything too babyish but nothing too old either! What will they use and enjoy? Anything for outdoor play is usually a big hit!
