These Easter gifts for kids are thoughtful and simple Easter basket ideas that your child will love!
Oh my goodness, friends, how is EASTER coming so quickly? Is anyone else still out there trying to find the perfect Easter gifts for kids? With all that is going on in the world, I think we need everything to celebrate these days, even if it’s as simple as an Easter basket with art supplies!
I love making my kids’ Easter baskets, and this year will be no different. But with so many ideas out there for Easter gifts for kids, it can be overwhelming.
Friends, this year will be so special, but also so different. We normally gather with family and friends, eat a big Easter brunch and have an egg scavenger hunt for all the littles and adults. We also really love going to church and celebrating with friends.
When it comes to Easter gifts for the kids, I try to keep things intentional and interactive. For my daughter’s first Easter basket, the “Easter Bunny” got her an electric toothbrush and some fruit gummies. I may have gone a bit overboard with the practicality of that gift. Either way, she loved it.
Leading up to Sunday, I have some fun Easter activities that we will do as a family. We will be decorating Easter eggs, making some decorations for the house, and as always we love to make empty tomb rolls.
I know kids just want to feel loved on a holiday, and it isn’t really about the Easter basket or gifts for that matter, but they are a fun way to celebrate Easter, and I think all kids need a little extra love this year. My kids are 5 years apart, so when thinking about Easter gifts for them, I had to be super creative. I am sure my 6-year-old will appreciate the holiday a little more than my one-year-old. Either way, it will be fun to be together.
Easter Gifts for Kids
I did find some great Easter gifts for kids on Amazon, and they are perfect for each of their ages. Plus, I don’t have to leave the house to go shopping! It’s a win-win! I normally end up spending way too much money on things that they aren’t actually going to use, so this year I put a lot of thought into it, and I hope it helps you as well.
