I can’t believe that it is almost Easter time for 2018 (when this was originally written). This year is flying by.
I thought I would team up with the Easter Bunny this year and discuss some NON candy ideas to put in your Toddler’s Easter Basket.
We try to limit sugar intake for our daughter. We don’t do candy on a regular basis.
Honestly, I don’t know if she’s even had any and I’m fine with that. She hasn’t even tried any juices yet, we are just strictly water and milk at the moment.
So, I wanted to gather a list up of non candy Easter Basket ideas for toddlers.
So, if you are in the need for some non candy items to fill your Toddler’s Easter Basket, you have come to the right place.
We also have an awesome Toddler and Baby Gift Guide if you aren’t building a basket but want to get them a little holiday gift.
19 Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers
These are functional, easy and toddler approved gifts. You can find many Easter themed books all over the place. This year we want to try the adorable easter bunny books like
Every year our local church has a book sale. They have every kind of used book under the sun for up to 90% off. Last year was the first year that I got to go and I was hooked.
This year, I had a count down of when the sale was coming. I had a list of book ideas and authors that I wanted to check out for myself, family members as gifts and for Caroline.
I was happy to find a few Easter books that will make it in the basket. You really can’t go wrong with books. They’re the perfect Easter Basket ideas for toddlers.
We also regularly go to our local consignment store to find books at SUPER cheap prices. She has quite the extensive library developing and she is very fond of it.
I found these adorable egg crayons that are Easter festive and are the perfect grip for Toddler hands to grab and scribble with. For Christmas, Caroline also got the Triangle Toddler Crayons by Crayola as well.
If the Toddler gets crayons, they’re going to need some coloring books. They have tons of cute Easter coloring books out there to choose from if you want one festive.
We love going to restaurants that have “table coloring paper” that she can draw on the entertain herself as we wait for food. So, now we will endless coloring supplies available for us at all times. I can’t wait to see her excitement.
Caroline is getting very interested in some movies. She liked Secret Life of Pets and now is very into Moana.
Moana is a hit because there is LOTS of singing!!! That’s her favorite part of movies. So, we grabbed Moana while it was on sale at Walmart and saved it for the Easter Basket.
This can go in the car, so when we go on long car ride trips, she will have her songs to sing with.
Just like regular crayons, bath crayons provide endless amounts of entertainment. We are looking forward to getting her Bath Crayons from Nuby.
I hope she understands that they can only color on the tub. She truly enjoys bath time, so I am sure this will be a hit as well.
In general, bath time is well liked by most toddlers. We are also looking forward to getting our Bath floating toys from Nuby that will be used for her Easter Basket as well.
You can find tons of fun new cups out there. I know Caroline would love any cup with Minnie Mouse ,any Disney Princess, Minnie Mouse, or other fun character.
She loves her Nuby Sippy Cups too. Have you read about how those cups changed our meal time?
Snack Cup with Sippy
They make these awesome dual function cups. These cups have a regular cup on the bottom and the top has a little snack container connected. So many times, I hand my daughter a cup and a snack container and she can handle juggle both of them.
So, companies, like Nuby, have made life easier and combined them into one container! Wahoo, what a win! These will add a fun element to your basket.
You can find some cute stuffed animals at the Dollar Tree and many other stores. We still had a cute Bunny from a friend from last year.
If her basket needs an extra filler, I’ll toss that bunny in there since she has no idea it even exists.
Side Walk Chalk
Who doesn’t love side walk chalk?!?! With spring finally here, or close to being here, side walk chalk will be the perfect basket item.
Just like crayons and bath crayons, kids can doodle and have a great time outside while they get some fresh air.
Swimming Pool Floats
Summer time will be here soon and they can totally need a new set of floats.
We need every kind of hair clip, tie, bow, etc that we can find. My daughter isn’t a fan of anything in her hair right now. I’m hoping in a couple months it won’t bother her so much.
I have an amazing mom friend who keeps assuring me that she won’t care any more in a few months, so I’m just anxiously waiting on those days.
Any tips on keeping hair ties, bows, clips, etc in her hair? Share them with me in the comments below, pretty please!
With fun weather ahead, I want to toss a cute pair of flip flops or sandals in my daughters basket this year!
Just as with shoes, weather changes, come with new clothing options. We hit our local consignment store annual sale and stocked up on clothing. Made me such a happy mama.
All these outside basket items will definitely warrant the need for a cute new sun hat!
With the sun hat, you gotta sport your new pair of sunglasses. We found adorable ones for cheap at the Dollar Store.
Since they were only a dollar, it won’t be a big deal if she loses or breaks them.
Some times in the spring, you’ll get some rainy days. With rainy days, it’s nice to have a warm, cute pair of house shoes or slippers. I’d love to find a Minnie Mouse Slipper set or something of that sort for our daughter.
Back to the warm and nice summer ideas! Pool time and sun time, brings the swim suit necessity! What fun character swim suit would your little one enjoy? Share with me in the comments and give me some inspiration!
Bath or Beach Towel
I saw some adorable Pottery Barn Kids beach towels for sale this year. I’d love to get Caroline any of the towels with the whales on them. She would really like a towel with a hood. I don’t know why, but wearing them on her head cracks her up.
Bonus Idea :
Cross Necklace or bracelet of some sort. This is an easy way to remind your Toddler what Easter is all about. Keeping Christ in the reason as to why we have these ideas is very necessary.
There are so many fun NON CANDY ideas to toss in an Easter Basket or goodie basket for your Toddler. I hope these Easter Basket ideas for toddlers get your creative juices flowing and you can have the Easter Basket of your dreams this year for your little one.
