What better way to end a cold, dreary winter season than with a bright, cheery holiday like Easter!


I remember celebrating Easter as a child with large family gatherings that always involved a delicious, huge meal and an Easter egg hunt.


Such great memories!


I carried on many of our same traditions with my own children over the years, but each year I like to try to freshen things up a bit, and one way I do that is with the kid's Easter baskets!


My Easter basket as a kid mainly consisted of chocolate and sometimes a stuffed animal. Candy is great and all, but there are so many other basket filler ideas for kids and teenagers. Here are some non-candy ideas according to age for Easter basket AND Easter egg fillers!



ANY ITEM THAT IS HIGHLIGHTED AND UNDERLINED IS A DIRECT LINK TO THE PRODUCT ON AMAZON!!!



BABY:


Does a baby really need an Easter basket? Not really, but if you have other kids they will be wondering why their baby brother or sister was left out of the fun. Might as well go for it!

You can have so much fun with Easter baskets, no matter what your budget!

Even my teenagers still look forward to getting an Easter basket every year! I think that I have just as much fun putting them together as they do receiving them...


Maybe I should put an empty basket out for me and see if that bunny decides to leave me a little something??



I know it looks like A LOT, but remember, I have FIVE KIDS!!!


Easter is such a fun way to welcome in the spring season. Want some fun ideas to add to your Easter family traditions?? Check out my post "Add Some Fun To Easter Family Traditions!"
