Over 100 Toddler Easter Basket Ideas!

I think one of the best parts about becoming a mom is being able to fully celebrate all the holidays again!!  It’s like all the magic has been restored and sprinkled throughout the year.  The little moments now become big moments, just like they were when I was growing up….full of wonder and surprise and celebration (and gifts!).

This upcoming Easter will be my son’s second, so I’ve been racking my brain, trying to think of things to include in his Easter basket.  I think I’m having just as much fun planning this gift as Rowan will have receiving it!

Now don’t get me wrong….chocolate, Peeps, jelly beans, and other candy goodness will fill his future baskets, but for night now, I’m wanting to include some more healthy treats as well as things that he’ll need or use anyways, but will still be fun additions….I mean, he’s a tot so he’s not going to be bummed when finding a pair of socks or toothbrush like a teenager would. ;)

Here are some ideas of fun little goodies that would work well in Easter baskets for toddlers (and most for babies, too!).  They’re all small enough to fit in a basket, inexpensive, age-appropriate, and most of all, FUN!

Great Resources for Easter Goodies

Here are some of my favorite places to shop for holiday fun:

  • Amazon: HUGE selection of course and great deals, especially with Prime membership‘s free two-day shipping, or free shipping when you spend $35!
  • Target: Obviously, right?  They always have a cute selection of seasonal goodies in One Spot and their mini-seasonal department, and sweet digs in the infant/toddler department too.
  • Zulily: I love snagging cute seasonal finds here (that’s where I got Rowan’s super cute personalized basket liner!), as well as kids’ clothing, shoes, and baby food….I just love good deals and often find great ones here.
  • Ebates: Before I do any shopping online, especially with the three stores listed above, I always click through Ebates first.  I just love getting rebate checks in the mail….it’s the easiest free money I’ve ever earned!
  • Dollar Tree: Lots of cute little stuffers as well as great value on all those plastic eggs!
  • Michaels: Love those dollar bins and fun crafts!

Easter/Spring Items

These are all items that are Easter and/or Spring related:

Here are some ideas for more year-round goodies that would still be great to include in an Easter basket:

Feeding Fun

Reading Fun

Bath Fun

Outside Fun

Toy Fun

Art Supplies Fun

Accessories Fun

Personal Care Fun

Potty Training Fun

We’re just starting our journey into potty training, so I thought I’d include some things here that I’ve noticed while researching this topic that would be great to include in an Easter basket.


Rowan’s Easter Basket

Here’s what I’ve included in my little man’s Easter basket this year as well as where I purchased each item.  I might add a few more things in before Easter Sunday, especially since Rowan is becoming obsessed with cars!

  • Basket (Target)
  • Personalized Basket Liner (Zulily last year….it actually arrived 10 days after Easter so we obviously didn’t use it, but Zulily told me to keep it, refunded my money, and gave me a $10 store credit for my inconvenience!  You can also snag it at regular price at Etsy.)
  • Bunny Ears (Zulily last year; also came with a matching blue bow tie which you can see below)
  • Pirate Potty Potty Training Book (Amazon)
  • Bath Puzzle (Target)
  • Puffs (Target)
  • Star Wars Light-Up/Sound Effects Toothbrush (Target)
  • Toothpaste (Target)
  • Triangular Crayons (Amazon)
  • Coloring Book (Target)

  • Sunglasses (Target)
  • Flip Flops (Old Navy….gotta love their $2.50 sandals!)
  • Bubbles (Target)


Rowan’s First Easter Last Year

Here’s how adorable Rowan was as a nine-month-old last Easter with his bunny ears, matching bow tie, and his two baskets (of course the grandparents were going to spoil him too….they also gave him his busy board that my dad made for him!):

Since his basket liner didn’t show up in time (whomp whomp), I had to improvise with a dollar store basket, some ribbon, and a personalized bunny tag (which by the way was one of very first things I ever made with my Silhouette Cameo….and it started my obsession, as you can see in my Project Gallery).

My mom also purchased the cutest little costume for him….and if grandma buys you a blue bunny costume, you wear the blue bunny costume. ;)
