My kids love to read, but they also love activity books, too! They actually got their hands on these two books already and have spent a ton of time hunting for 800+ Easter-themed objects and finding their way through nearly 50 Easter-themed mazes. These books are great for keeping in the car for those moments when they just need something to look at for a few minutes.
My kids loved going to Monster Jam a couple years ago (yes, the boys and the girls), and I know they’ll be stoked to see these Monster Jam trucks in their Easter baskets! These 1:64 scale trucks feature official BKT tires, stylized chrome rims, and embody the style and swagger of the trucks seen in the show.
I’m not a huge fan of fruity candy, but my kids sure are! I appreciate that these treats are individually wrapped so they can be hidden around the house or split among Easter baskets. Available in four fruity flavors.
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.
