2 Year Old Easter Basket Ideas

Easter Basket for Two Year Old-Popular DC Mommy Blogger Baby Castan on Board - Toddler's Easter Basket by popular DC mommy blogger Baby Castan on Board

I can’t believe the time has come to think about toddler Easter baskets. Easter is April 1 this year, so it’s right around the corner, and that means Spring is also around the corner and I am so happy about that! The little guy and I took our weekly trip to Target last week and I was so inspired by all the fun dollar section basket items that I basically put his basket together on the spot.

I don’t like to put a lot of junk in the little guy’s basket, mainly because we don’t have space in our townhouse for a lot of stuff so I try to get creative with some 2 year old Easter basket ideas.

Between the dollar section of Target and Re-Play’s awesome Easter inspired line I am really excited for the big reveal on Easter day. Read more about our love for Re-Play here.

2 Year Old Easter Basket Ideas:

  1. Re-Play tableware set — We can always use plates, utensils, and bowls and we are a big fan of Re-Play (read more here). These Spring colors are perfect for including in a toddler Easter basket.
  2. Bubbles — We are still obsessed with bubbles over here. In fact, I am pretty sure the little guy is most excited about Spring so that he can play with bubbles again. I found a cute bunny bubble wand in the dollar section of Target that is perfect for the basket. Here is a similar option.
  3. Felt matching game — We are always looking for fun games and toys that are also educational. This felt matching game is perfect and so inexpensive! I plan to keep in in our diaper bag so when we go out we can pull it out if we need something to entertain (distract) him with.
  4. Hop tee — I always put a tee in his Easter basket. This one from Follow Your Arrow is SO cute! I also love this decal. Last year, we put it on a sippy cup for his basket.
  5. Finger Paint Soap — One of our little guy’s favorite things to do is paint so when I saw these bathtub finger paint soaps it was a no-brainer. I like to include some kind of bath activity in his basket because bath toys tend to get gross fast (last year we put bathtub crayons in his basket). I think he is going to love these.
  6. Bug Catcher — So this was another dollar section find and I just couldn’t resist buying it. It doesn’t really fit in the basket but that’s OK. It’s super cute and I think the little guy is going to have so much fun with it (with Dan 😆 )
  7. Apron — We have been really into cooking with Aiden lately so it’s about time he got his own apron to help contain the mess! It’s not pictured because we ordered from Etsy and it isn’t in yet, but it is so super cute! We got the one that features cities of the world.

I got the basket from Michael’s a couple of years ago; however, I am planning to upgrade to one of these sweet baskets and a liner from Pottery Barn Kids.

That’s it for our Easter basket this year.  It was not expensive at all to put together and I have a Target RedCard so I saved even more and it links to my bank account so I don’t have to worry about paying it off each month.

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!
