The Best Fun & Easy Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers

Easy Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers featured by top US mommy blog, Baby Castan on Board

I always love Easter season. The egg hunts and spring weather always makes me really happy — and  I love seeing Aiden’s excitement when he sees his Easter basket. Since Aiden has a winter birthday, I usually use this opportunity to stock up his Easter basket with fun outdoor activities — this ensures we aren’t buying a bunch of junk. Most of the items I included in Aiden’s basket this year came from the dollar section of Target! Here are some Easter basket ideas for toddlers.

Easter basket ideas for toddlers

Spiderman Kite: Aiden loves all things superheroes and recently he has been asking to fly kites. I saw the X-Kites Pocketkite at Target and it fits perfectly in his basket. It appears the Pocketkite is sold out online, but here is an Iron Man kite if your little one loves superheroes as much as mine does!

Indoor/Outdoor Chalk: Aiden’s basket is actually filled with a lot of chalk this year. For Christmas Aiden got a MUtable and he has been loving the chalkboard table so I got him colored and white chalkboard chalk. Sidewalk chalk is always a popular activity in the spring and an Easter basket staple so I added a case of sidewalk chalk too.

Sunglasses: Again with the superhero theme I found these cute Avengers sunglasses that are perfect for his basket. I found a pair in the dollar section at Target, but here is a similar pair online.

Light up bouncy ball: Aiden loves balls so when I saw a fun bouncy ball that lights up in the dollar section at Target I thought it would be a perfect addition to his Easter basket.

Candy with Easter topper: I try to keep the sweets to a minimum. I did find a tube filled with candy with an Easter topper that fit well in the basket.

Goldfish: What toddler doesn’t love Goldfish? I got a couple of these spring colored Goldfish snack packages to add to Aiden’s basket.  I love that they are Easter themed but not candy!

Bunny Art Set: I love the little art sets that you can find in the Target dollar section. They had a cute bunny with paper and crayons that are perfect for car rides or keeping Aiden busy when we are out and about (ie; at restaurants!)

Roller Skates: I am so excited for Aiden to see these Cars roller skates. He has a friend who has a pair and he loves riding on them so I know he will love these!

Matchbox Cars: Cars are always a hit with Aiden and they are great for an Easter basket so I purchased a five pack to add to his collection.

In addition to Aiden’s Easter basket we also do a little egg hunt at our house each year. I love filling plastic Easter eggs with this delicious Bunny Bait Trail Mix and this Bunny Kisses Caramel Popcorn. We usually also hide some chocolate around for him to find too.

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!
