6 Fun Easter Basket Ideas for Preschoolers

Fun Easter Basket Ideas for Preschoolers featured by top DC mommy blog, Baby Castan on Board.

I usually love the time right before Easter. We had lots of Easter egg hunts and fun spring activities planned that are, of course, not happening now. I still want this to be a fun time for Aiden so I am working hard to bring as many of our usual Spring activities to him. Luckily, I got a head start this year and put a lot of his basket together before all the quarantining and social distancing. I thought I would share some fun Easter basket ideas for preschoolers.

6 Fun Easter Basket Ideas for Preschoolers

Outdoor activities:

Chalk and bubbles are always outdoor staples for us. Aiden’s Easter basket is the perfect opportunity to stock up. I found mine in the dollar section at Target, but Amazon still has these in stock at the time of posting. Chalk and bubbles are great for being outside while social distancing because I can put Aiden on our deck and let him chalk the deck and blow bubbles off the deck.

Gardening supplies:

Last year, I introduced Aiden to gardening with small planters on our small condo balcony. This year, we have a whole front and back yard worth of space for gardening. I found a few seeds/planter sets in the dollar section of Target that are perfect for starting seedlings that we can plant later. Here is something similar on Amazon. Gardening is fun for preschoolers but still teaches them important skills. Again, it’s a great way to get outside while social distancing.


We have been doing a lot of at-home learning while we have been stuck at home. I love doing Tangrams with Aiden. I found this cute travel set and thought it would be perfect for some of our educational time at home, plus we can take it with us on the road when we travel.

Hoppy Floppy’s Happy Hunt:

Have you played the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel game? This is a similar game, but with the cutest bunny and the perfect size and shape for an Easter basket. The game is great for matching and fine motor skills.


I always add a book to Aiden’s Easter basket. He loves them and it gives me a chance to build his library. You can check out some of our favorite Easter books here.

Moonlite Story Reel:

Do you have a Moonlite projector? We do and Aiden is obsessed. I got him a new reel, The Tortoise and the Hare, that we can project at bedtime.

I would love to hear what goodies you are putting in your preschooler’s Easter basket this year. Let me know in the comments below!

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
