If you’re still scrambling to fill your child’s Easter basket, don’t beat yourself up about it! It seems like it gets harder every year to find good gifts or healthy snacks to put in my kid’s Easter baskets. I’ve been trying to make sure I have a healthy mix of educational materials, religious books, and healthy snacks.
Chances are if you’re reading this post, your Easter baskets aren’t filled up yet, so don’t worry, most of the items we picked up you can still get on Amazon Prime or your local Target or Walmart.
1. Buddha Board
Our top Easter basket gift for this year is the Buddha Board!
All versions of the Buddha Board are extremely portable and come with a water tray and brush. Another added perk that we love about the Buddha Board is that it’s environmentally friendly! It doesn’t require ink, paint, special chemicals, or electricity! Best of all, it will last for years with proper care. So while your child is getting their “screen time” they are also saving the environment. You can practice your letters, numbers, or drawing skills.
You can get the Original Buddha Board and the Mini Buddha Board on Amazon with 2 day shipping to get it in time for Easter!
2. Crayola Arts & Crafts
Most kids love to get creative, which is why our second top pick for Easter basket stuffers is Crayola Arts & Crafts products! Its a great excuse to stock the art supply closet.
3. Healthy Snacks
Enjoy Life Chocolate Minis are my kids favorite. We get them for Christmas to put in our advent calendar, and they are the perfect size to put in Easter eggs too!
We also love Yum Earth Sour Beans. Most jelly beans are made with corn syrup or corn sugar, so if you have a kid with a corn allergy, finding jelly beans they can actually eat is a challenge. Luckily, Target is carrying Yum Earth Sour Beans for Easter and at only $3.49/bag, you can grab one for yourself too!
Black Forest Organic Easter Gummies Mix Bag for $6.99. My toddler may or may not have seen the bag and asked for some. If he did, he would say that he enjoyed all the flavors. This bag is a great deal and you can grab it at your local Target this week!
4. Religious Books
We love all of the baby believer books. If I had to pick one to start with, it would be their counting primer First Bible Basics. I love the beautiful imagery, and you can start early memorization work with the commandments, beatitudes, and fruits of the spirit.
The Little Hands Bible is a staple in our home. It is a concise children’s Bible
Found: Psalm 23 (Jesus Storybook Bible) is a big book so be sure to check the dimensions to see if it will fit into your Easter basket! It has excellent illustrations and it has a substantial, padded cover so it’s perfect for little hands.
And last but not least, the Our Father is a sweet, well done board book that introduces little ones to the greatest prayer that Jesus taught us to pray. Each part of the prayer is beautifully illustrated so kid’s understand the beauty of the Lord’s Prayer. This one is a winner in our book!
