Easter is coming quickly and we would love to see parents and grandparents get the children in their life educational and useful things for the Easter Baskets this year! Candy and chocolate just gets the kids hyper and make their teeth rot. Let’s try something different this year!
We’ve got some brilliant Easter basket gift ideas for boys, girls and toddlers too.
Discovery Store has a great selection of crafting kits that will give your Easter hunt an exciting twist! One of our favorites this year is the Monster Sewing Workshop Kit. This award winning kit for parents and children to enjoy together includes everything you need to create adorable and silly little stuffed monsters. Your child will not only learn useful skills like threading a needle, cutting and sewing, but they will get quality time with you too!
Choose from the wide variety of included printed fabrics, felt and thread to create an adorable little pal that your child will cherish. This is a little too big to stuff in an easter basket, but you will feel good knowing that you gave your child something educational and worthwhile, rather than unhealthy candy! Better to give your child a monster than something that will make them turn into one! lol
Get the Monster Sewing Workshop Kit for $24.95 at the Discovery store.
You can also find Props in a Box, at the Discovery Store. They are the perfect gift for the kid that already has too many toys and needs something to foster their imaginations. Props in a Box offer endless playtime possibilities for your kids. With each box containing all the props they need to play out every scene of every dream! You can even download the Props in a Box Movie Maker App so you can film a movie of your kids performances with the ability to do different titles, music and special effects.
While this is type of gift might be too large to stuff in an Easter basket, it will be greatly appreciated! Your child will go nuts over Props In A Box and you’ll feel better knowing that you gave them something that is educational and fun, rather than some boring candy.
At Discovery Store, prices for Props in a Box range from $29.99 – $74.99.

Not only is this a super cute gift, but a practical one too! Your baby or toddler will love this little guy at first sight and it will become a special part of your bedtime routine too.
