Ideas for Filling Easter Baskets for Kids- M Loves M @marmar

Easter is coming up faster than I realized so I spent the weekend researching cute ideas for filling Easter baskets for kids. I loved last year’s baskets, which these photos are from, so they’re definitely inspiring me this year as well. Easter is on Sunday April 17th so I hope this post helps you put together your kid’s baskets, or maybe tops them off.

Last year I included kids water bottles in both baskets. For Corinna I included flower sunglasses, this sweet bunny book, and some Critters which she has grown to love so much over the past year. Augustine got a little tool kit (which I especially loved because Jesus was a carpenter’s son), sunglasses, a book {this book would be perfect!}, and some chalk. Unfortunately, the tool kit I got is out of stock but I love this wooden one! I try not to load up candy in their baskets but we do an Easter egg hunt with some treats in plastic eggs. Augustine’s favorite are the peanut butter pretzels!

This year I’m thinking about adding bath bombs which have been a favorite of both kids and some other things they can play together like playdough, bubble toys or washable markers.

If you have a little one, this knit bunny lovey is so darling! And this pull-along duck or counting carrots game.

For Corinna, I love this bunny bag, gingham bow, or knot detail headbands. She’d probably have a lot of fun with this wooden camera too! I feel like these floral knit socks would be very practical and she needs some new pairs. Somehow socks always get lost around here…

For Augustine, I’m looking into getting him the Tractor LegoCity or a game like Jenga. This dinosaur diver pack might also be a fun encouragement for upcoming swim lessons. And baseball hats to last through summer might be a good option too!

Both kids love helping me in the kitchen so I thought about getting this Easter cupcake kit, although that would probably be something I surprise them with over the weekend. They love spontaneous baking days, and these coconut cupcakes are one of our absolute favorites. Perfect for Easter too! Another fun activity would be this paint your own eggs craft.

For clothing, I adore this bloomer set for C and button-down and khaki shorts for A. These sandals have been a favorite during recent years so I was thinking about adding them to both of their baskets. They’re great for days at the splash park!
