Lent is almost over, and Easter Sunday is just around the bend, so it’s a great time to get creative and think of some Easter gift ideas for kids. I have made a list of MORE THAN 50 Easter Basket Stuffers that your kids will love.  I’m sure you can find a few Easter gifts kids will use over & over and over again. We’ve added our favorites to the list, too.

Our kids look forward to finding their Easter baskets every year.  These Easter Basket Fillers are fun, and most are easy to find online or in the store.

Where Can I Hide The Easter Basket?

  • in the microwave
  • behind a chair
  • under a bed
  • under our Mud-Room Bench.
  • Behind a curtain
  • On the porch
  • Behind a couch pillow
  • the coat closet
  • inside the oven
  • hidden in a kitchen cabinet
  • under blankets in a basket used to store blankets.

The kids have a blast looking for their baskets, just as my brother and I did when we were little! We have four children, and Easter is so much fun for them!

Speaking of hiding & seeking, this Easter scavenger hunt is so much fun, and it reminds us of the reason for our celebrations. Each card shares a different bible verse and items to look for to reinforce the scriptures.

What do we give the kids for Easter?

When our kids were younger, the Easter Bunny gave them one more significant Easter present and filled their basket (or whatever you use as a basket) with other fun things (gifts, stuffed animals, etc…)   I especially love it when the kids get personalized Easter gifts.
Now that they are older, the ‘Easter Bunny’ still comes to deliver their baskets & eggs, but the gifts have changed a bit… and the kids know that INSIDE of the basket is where the fun happens!  

🐰Easter Basket Ideas for Kids🐰

When I was little, I loved searching for my basket.  I also loved it when my “basket” wasn’t actually a “basket.” 🙂 Many kids loved to have a bunny basket (in the shape of a bunny) when they were younger, too. Our kids are using the same Easter baskets this year that they’ve used in the past, but some years I get creative and think outside of the basket by using things like laundry baskets, luggage, backpacks, or totes. 

We also search for Easter Eggs filled with things like money, stickers, or gifts. Our Easter Bunny doesn’t put the eggs in the basket; he fills their baskets with fun surprises and hides the eggs around the house and in the backyard.  
They search for the Easter Eggs after they have eaten breakfast. 

🐰Here are a few ideas for Stuffers for the Easter Basket🐰

Many of these ideas for kids’ gifts are products purchased online (some with free shipping), so you can pass along your favorites to the Easter Bunny.  Some of these can also be stuffed into eggs for an Easter Egg Hunt!

4. GEL BLASTER – Gel blasters are similar to paintball guns but with water beads. However, instead of using regular paintballs, these next-generation toy guns use water-based gel balls or beads, which are eco-friendly, biodegradable, and non-staining. These gel balls burst upon impact. We like setting up targets and seeing who can hit them most often… or seeing if who can knock things off (water bottles, etc) of our retaining wall in the backyard. (Note -They do sting a bit if they hit the skin.) Gel Blasters are a mess-free, non-toxic, eco-friendly way to keep kids active.

FLEURI BEAUTY – CLEAR GEL CLEANSE – This Clear Gel Cleanse removes dirt without excessive irritation to the skin by focusing on the base water. With teenagers in our house, it’s important to find cleansers that are gentle, soothing, and refreshing while also working well. Fleuri’s Clear Gel Cleanse is also a makeup remover. It contains natural plant extracts that replenish the skin while removing dirt, resulting in clean, plump, and soft skin

  1. What fun ideas! OurEaster Bunny hides the baskets around the house, too. Pinning! 🙂

  2. You’re my hero! I’d already begun panicking about this year’s Easter basket. And now I have a ton of ideas! Is it just me or does everyone compete with their year-before selves? 🙂

  3. So many great ideas! I’ve been brainstorming as in previous years what to put in that isn’t candy/chocolate. This year I am hoping to put together gardening themed “baskets” with a watering cans/planters filled with seeds, child sized gardening gloves and bulbs etc.

  4. I think my kids might just have the coolest Easter baskets yet this year! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Another way to find excellent bargains are by shopping on sites like Groupon, Zulily and Totsy. Each of these sites offer toys, clothes and gifts at significantly discounted prices. I love putting something personalized in my kids’ baskets. I’ve done personalized books, t-shirts and toys in the past.Another way to find excellent bargains are by shopping on sites like Groupon, Zulily and Totsy.

  6. Last year for Easter we put clues in the eggs & she (5 years old) had to use the clues to find her gifts (3 or 4 small things, a book, fun socks, etc). We don’t give her candy & you can only put so much money & stamps in the eggs, so we tried this idea. She had a great time with it & has been talking about it recently, 2 months until Easter. (all the blue eggs lead to 1 gift, pink eggs led to second gift, etc)

  7. Great Post. So creative. I have been doing basket for a while and I like to impress my kids. Thanks for the ideas.

    1. You’re so welcome! Hope you and your family have a happy Easter 🙂

  8. Lovely Easter Basket ideas. I regret I didn’t come across this earlier.

    1. Thank you! So many of these awesome products work as great gifts throughout the year 🙂

  9. When I taught 5th Grade Sunday School, Before Easter we talked about Jesus’s Resurrection. We made biscuits in our class.. The kid’s rolled out the dough, and In the center of each biscuit we put a Large Marshmallow. Then covered the Marshmallow with dough. I baked the biscuits and let them cool. I asked the children to each cut their biscuit in half. Where did the Marshmallow go? And where did Jesus go? When the Rock was moved from the tomb?
