Look & Find: Easter Hunt and Eggcellent Easter Mazes
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.
Guess What’s in Spring and Guess What’s In Nature Lift-the-Flap Books
Learning meets fun! These books are jam packed with new information. With 35 flaps in each book, my kids stayed interested until the end! Each book covers many topics. The books promote problem solving by providing clues to figure out. Read the clue and take a guess. Then, lift the flap and you’ve found the answer!
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.
Baby Bottle Pop Variety Pack and Push Pop Candy Party Pack
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.
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.
