As Easter approaches and spring blossoms, parents are often on the hunt for creative and fun ways to celebrate with the kids. One beloved Easter tradition is putting together Easter baskets, filled with goodies that the kids will love. If you're looking for ideas on what to include in your Easter baskets with a spring-inspired twist this year, here's a simple formula to follow: a clothing item, a book or activity, a sweet treat, a lovey, and a spring-inspired craft.
Of course, no Easter basket is complete without a sweet treat. Whether it's a chocolate bunny, jelly beans, or a fruit-flavored treat, a sweet treat is sure to delight your child's taste buds.
Lovey (Stuffed Animal)
A lovey, or a stuffed animal, is a perfect addition to any Easter basket. Choose an animal that your child loves, or one that matches the spring theme (such as a bunny or a lamb). A lovey can be a source of comfort and a companion for your child long after Easter has passed.
Putting together an Easter basket with a spring twist can be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your child. By following this simple formula, you can create a basket that's filled with practical, fun, and meaningful items that celebrate the joy and renewal of the spring season.
Easter Basket for Kids
I still cannot believe we are half way through March already and thinking about Easter baskets. Typically on Easter we head over to a family member's house to enjoy some extended family time; however this year, we will be celebrating at home with the littles and grandparents. I am looking forward to when we can spend time with our extended family (hopefully soon) until then we will continue to soak in the time as a fam. Christmas in July, anyone??
Easter baskets are one of my favorites to put together! I think the combo of knowing spring is around the corner and knowing we will be spending more time outdoors excite me! I tend to go a bit overboard filling their baskets with fun activities that we can do on a rainy day or even when it is sunny out. Some may say I tend to go a bit overboard, but I love making the holidays extra special for the boys. It is something I love doing and seeing their faces in the morning make it so worth it!
This year, I started to purchase items a few weeks ago. Typically each time I run to Target I add a few items here and there mainly because while I am shopping for the items, they are bringing out the new seasonal items. Similar to my Valentines baskets, I tend to stick to a theme - a book, a game, a treat, a craft, and activity. However given that spring is around the corner, I do add in a little extra in there such as bubbles, chalk, etc. These are items I would replenish every year anyways so it is a nice addition to the baskets. I think it makes the kids extra excited knowing they will be spending more time outdoors as well.
On Easter, we typically do an Easter egg hunt either indoors or out (weather permitting). Then we always fly kites - with the hopes that it is a windy day! What are some of your Easter traditions?

Then I created a few wall art pieces on Canva. Do you use this program? If not, you should! It provides a variety different options to create wall art, signs, flyers, worksheets, logos, and more. After creating the art pieces, I printed them off and put them in frames. For the larger print, I had it printed off at Staples on poster board. I love how they all turned out.
For the rest of the decor, I created this gray balloon arch. I can say it was not the easiest thing to put together and I probably spent WAY to much working on it. I bought a kit off of Amazon that came with everything that you needed to put up the display - sticky dots, hooks, string, and more. In the end, I probably could have gone without it mainly because of how much time I spent on it, but it add a nice element to the display.
