I have compiled this list of 50+ ideas to make preparing for Easter so much easier for the overwhelmed Easter Bunny for the kids in your life.
Easter lands on Sunday, April 17th this year, and the Easter Bunny is preparing the baskets and the candy-filled eggs to hide for the beautiful little children of the world.
A time of welcoming the warmer weather after months of the bitter winter, Easter is a fun and loving holiday for little ones. Before I really get too far in this post, please note that I don’t believe in God. I’m not religious but this list can be used regardless of the beliefs of your family around this time of year!
Although we are not celebrating what is typical during this special holiday, my family and I celebrate Easter as welcoming Spring. The season of life and color returning to the world around us. In our family, the Easter Bunny comes, and our kids spend their early morning hunting down plastic eggs and the basket that was designed for them.
I have fond memories as a kid when it comes to Easter. I remember having mini competitions with my younger brother on who could find the most eggs, keeping quiet if we found each other’s Easter basket, and opening up the eggs to see what candy was inside of them.
As a parent, it’s a tad bit more stressful, which is why I wanted to compile a list of ideas on what to put in your Easter baskets for your little ones.
Our daughters are currently six, two, and the baby just turned a year old last month. Easter has been our oldest daughter’s favorite holiday since she was a baby. I love the excitement and cannot wait to see how our toddler will react this year now that she understands it a little bit more. I love that aspect of parenting: watching your kids get just as excited as you do and did as a child.
Raising My Three and Me presents… easter basket stuffer ideas for the little ones in your life!
Before I get started on the post, I just wanted to give a warm welcome to any new readers and acknowledge my supporters! Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to read my blog post.

Okay, time to go back to the content!
The first thing that you need to do is find out what kind of basket you are putting these into. They make reusable ones, plastic bins, but we are planning on using vintage-inspired baskets with these personalized liners that we got from Etsy.
If you’re not really into traditional baskets I have seen these awesome ideas:
- In an opened up umbrella (if you’re not superstisious)
- In rain boots
- In a kiddie swimming pool.
- In a planter pot
You can also line the baskets with the traditional Easter grass (in whatever color you want), you can use tissue paper, or you don’t need to put anything at the bottom as long as nothing will fall out!
When choosing stuffers consider the following:
- The age of your child.
- Your budget as a family.
- If you even want to do baskets in your family.
- Your child’s interests.
Remember that you are NOT a bad parent for doing things differently than other families. Parenting is NOT a competition. Just enjoy your time with your little ones and celebrate what works in your family.
Without further ado – here are some lists of what you can put into your kid’s easter basket.
- Sensory Toys (fidget poppers, stress balls, etc.)
- Sand toys
- Surprise toys (hatchimals, 5-surprise, mashems)
- Diving rings
- Bath toys
- Diving sticks
- Board Books
- Picture books
- Stuffed animals
- Mathcbox cars
- Barbie or other dolls.
- Chocolate bunny
- Baby snacks (puffs, teethers, etc)
- Granola bars
- Fruit snacks

This is just a list of ideas that I have compiled that children might enjoy on Easter morning. You obviously don’t have to put this much in it, or anything at all, and can adjust it to your family’s beliefs and needs! At the end of the day, this is just a time to connect with who and what matters the most to you.
I will share what we are putting in our kids’ easter baskets in the future!
Feel free to share what you typically put in your kids’ baskets.
Thanks for reading and see you in my next post! Bye for now.
