Easter Basket Ideas for Kids

Easter is almost here! Do you have your Easter baskets ready? If they aren’t quite complete, or if you just want to amp up the fun level of your baskets a bit with some extra goodies, here are some awesome Easter Basket Ideas for Kids!

All of these gifts are just the right size to fit in a basket, and they’ll take up enough room that you won’t have to overdo it with the candy. (Although you still could, if you wanted to….)

Playmobil Ice Cream Shop Sand Bucket

Scoop up the fun with the Ice Cream Shop Sand Bucket! Serve out cold tasty treats thanks to the included ice cream scoop and various molds, perfect for building mouthwatering ice cream cones. Then, place the ice cream seller behind the freezer counter, at the bottom front of the sand bucket, to sell all the delicious snacks to passersby. Kids can also use the bucket with sieve to either build sand castles or sift through the sand in search shells and other fun stuff. When playtime is over, store all the pieces inside the bucket and use the sieve as a lid. The bucket has a capacity of just under a ½ gallon. Set includes two figures, bucket, sieve, ice cream spoon, two ice cream cones, two ice cream scoops, and one waffle mold.

TLC Kritters

TLC Kritters need your care and love! Take home the incubator and open to reveal which baby animal you’ve received. Time for the gender reveal! Drop the included packet into water to reveal if your Kritter is a boy or a girl. The packet will include a gender reveal card and accessories for your Kritter. Use the included bottle to feed your new pet and – give it a squeeze to make it sneeze. Take off the Kritter’s diaper and dunk it in cool water to reveal a dirty diaper, noted by emojis. Clean the diaper by soaking in warm water. Collect all the TLC Kritters!
