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!
