When it comes to Easter, every kid is super excited to receive an Easter basket. I would be totally okay if I still got one (semi kidding). Easter baskets are really fun to make! Just like any gift you give, an Easter basket should be customized for the child you’re gifting it to and filled with things they’ll love. Like small toys that can fit in the basket & sweet treats.
One basket I created on was for my 9 year old goddaughter. Here is an idea of some of the fillers I used to fill her basket:
Of course no Easter basket is complete without some yummy chocolate & candy. My favorite healthy organic candies are from Surf Sweets that you can find online at a great deal from Thrive Market. Most of the goodies were bought from local stores like the Dollar Tree, Rite Aid and Duane Reade.
For my 2 year old godson, anything would honestly get him excited (it’s the cutest thing!) But I did ask his mom what he is loving at the moment because it really is so fun when a toddler shouts out his favorite character in excitement. And like most little boys he loves cars, Paw Patrol and Spider Man. I didn’t want to fill his basket with too many sugary treats so I knew mini Welch’s Fruit Snacks would be perfect. Gifting books is my favorite thing to do and I found some cute ones from both the Dollar Tree and Marshalls.
You can either put all the Easter goodies in a whicker basket or find fun colorful paper baskets at local drugstores. Another great idea I got from my sister, is to use fabric storage boxes that are perfect to reuse in children’s rooms and come in a variety of colors.

I love creating Easter baskets and had so much fun making these! I hope my ideas inspire you to make your own.
