It’s the first week of April and Easter is right around the corner! If you’re looking for Toddler Easter Basket ideas, I’ve put together a guide with a few of my “favorite things”. Please note that this post contains affiliate links and that I have tested all of the products mentioned. Happy Shopping!
Easter Egg Sidewalk Chalk– Easter Egg Sidewalk Chalk is easy for tiny hands to grasp and is the perfect addition to your Easter Basket. The pastel colors will create beautiful art and your toddler will love using them at the park or in your driveway.
Melissa & Doug Slice & Sort Wooden Eggs- Melissa and Doug Slice and Sort Wooden Eggs are a wonderful addition to your toddlers kitchen set. They come with 6 double-sided wooden eggs that attach with a self-adhesive colored yolk. They can also be used for imaginative play, as well as matching, and developing fine motor skills.
Prextex Easter Egg Educational Shaped Puzzle in a Basket– Prextex Easter Eggs are also a great addition to your toddlers play kitchen. The basket comes with 12-eggs that can be used to teach sorting, and matching. The little basket also serves as a great toy for your toddler to carry eggs or other objects.
Growing Pet Chicken Egg– The Growing Pet Egg is a fascinating way for little ones to watch a baby chick hatch. All you have to do is submerge the egg in water, and in about 1-2 days, the shell will start to break and a baby chick will hatch. This toy does have small parts, so I would recommend that toddlers only watch with their eyes.
Easter Surprise ( Peter Rabbit) By Beatrix Potter- This is a must-have for your Easter basket, especially if you’re a fan of Beatrix Potter books and love Peter Rabbit. This sweet book rhymes and tells a story about Peter Rabbit as he hops along the bunny trail to share an Easter surprise with his friends. It also includes some of Beatrix Potter’s most famous characters such as the Pied Piper and Puddle Duck.
The Itsy Bitsy Bunny by Little Simon– If your toddler loves singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider, this book will become one of their favorites! It has a playful twist on the original song, as the little bunny hops as fast as he can to hide all of his Easter eggs in time for the big day.
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by DuBose Hayward– This classic tale has always been my favorite Easter story. It’s about a mama bunny who dreams of becoming an Easter bunny, and in the end is rewarded for her compassion, kindness and bravery. It’a a timeless book that will be treasured for many Easters.
Peep and Egg: I’m Not Hatching by Laura Gehl- This book is just the cutest and a delightful book for all ages. Peep is a chick that really wants his friend Egg to hatch, but Egg is fearful to hatch and join the outside world. In an effort to get Egg to hatch, Peep tells him all of the fun things they can do together. It’s colorful and lively illustrations also truly capture the message of facing fears.
Fisher Price Doddle Pro Trip– This Doddle Pro is the perfect size for little hands, and traveling. An added bonus is that the pen attaches, so that it won’t get lost. It will be the perfect toy to add to your bag of toddler tricks for restaurants and long trips.
The Easter Story Egg– The Easter Story Egg will truly celebrate the meaning of Easter and establish a fun-fulled family tradition. The Easter Story Egg Book starts on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter. It includes a set of nesting eggs and each egg has a corresponding story in the book for everyday of Holy Week.
Peep Crayons– These handmade Peep Crayons are absolutely adorable and a perfect Easter basket filler! They are small enough to fit perfectly in tiny toddler hands and the best part is that they are non-toxic!
