10 Easter Basket Ideas For Toddlers

I hear you, moms and dads, it seems like just yesterday we were shopping for Christmas stockings! How does the year fly by so fast? It’s true though, Easter is around the corner, and with that — Easter baskets!

If you’re anything like me, your toddler doesn’t need a plethora of egg-filled candy. With both of my kids we’ve actually held off on many sweets until they were much older. But no candy, doesn’t mean we’re skipping the fun of Easter baskets; it just means we’re getting creative with mini gifts. So, what surprises are best for those baskets?

Here’s a starting point for your toddler Easter basket preparation. Be sure to chime in with what you’re planning for your toddlers too!
