Boy Easter Basket Ideas

Easter will be here shortly. we love to make sure the kids get a little something special, hower, it is not Christmas and it is not their birthdays, so we try NOT to go overboard. In our home to stick to three questions: Can I build it? Can I read it? Can I use it outside? Then we add in a couple of the kids favorite easter treats that only show up in stores this time of year. Chocolate bunnies, Peeps, and jelly beans.

We love to make sure the kids have at least one religious book, and then two fun fiction books. We also like toys that can be used as a learning tool, or creativity outlet. This usually means arts supplies, legos, blocks, magformers, K’nex, and other toys that use STEM or STEAM abilities. Easter usually marks the better half of our Spring weather. So we like to utilize the nice weather to get the kids outside. We try to include outdoors toys. Things they can use in the pool, sprinklers, blow bubbles with, play ball with, or draw on the sidewalk with. Anything that can get them outside enjoying the outdoors and being physical is great! We try to keep the candy and food to a minimum. Especially since we attend an egg hunt at our church that includes candy inside of the Easter eggs.

We scoped out a lot of other blogs for some fantastic basket themes and ideas for you. Some of our favorites came from Non Toy Gifts, Modern Sports Mom, and The DIY Village. Each of these blogs offer multiple basket ideas for boys. They also each offer incredible ideas for various age groups, even teens! So be sure to check them out. You will be very happy you did.

Easter Ideas

Easter is just around the corner now. You may have already started gathering ideas for baskets this year, but if you haven’t we have a few Easter ideas for different age groups that might help you in your last minute shopping. You can make Easter baskets with simple items. While many parents like to steer away from too much candy you add “treats” in other forms: jerky, specialty drinks, cookies, chips, etc. For younger kids try including their favorite cracker or cereal. Toys and other favorite items can e easily added. Bubbles are always a huge hit, balls, sports equipment, hats, coloring books, etc. These items do not cost much and they are great for spring activities. You do not have to stick with the traditional “basket” theme. Try changing it up by using a baseball hat, swing, toy truck, beach towel, kiddie pool, the possibilities are endless. Check out some amazing visual ideas for different age groups below. We hope you have a fantastic Easter!
