Looking for something besides candy to fill your child’s Easter basket with? Here are just a few ideas! Keep in mind, I’m not suggesting you include ALL of these items…but this list should at least give you a few ideas!
1. A New Bible
In keeping with the true meaning of Easter, we consider this a great time to explore a new Bible. There are so many amazing Bibles to share with our children! Some of our favorite children’s Bibles for each age are:
We love this Bible because each story is short, simple, and includes actions the baby/toddler can do with the story. The end of each story also concludes with a short prayer.
2. ABC Printable Scripture Cards
Again in keeping with the true meaning of Easter, let this be a time that you challenge your family to learn one new scripture each week with these ABC Printable Scripture Cards. The best news? These are absolutely free to print yourself!
Go here to print your own!
3. Arts & Crafts Supply
I stock up on school supplies in August when they are dirt cheap, so I have quite a few boxes of markers and crayons that would be excellent for Easter baskets. We also love these Do-a-Dot Markers! If you have more than 1 child, you could buy a box and divide it between your kids…if they wouldn’t fight over them, that is. :)
4. A New Book
Everyone loves getting a new book! Here are just a few suggestions..
We love playdough in our house, so that is always a hit for gifts! Either get some from Target this week (it’s on sale), or make your own! We’ve made lots of different flavors, including lemongrass-scented playdough (to look like grass) or chocolate-scented playdough (to look like mud). Put your homemade playdough into a few different Easter eggs with a “prop” (a plastic bug, flower, or figurine).
What are you planning to put in your child’s Easter basket???
