Easter is almost here and it’s time for parents to start planning what to put in the kids Easter basket. Sure, you could go to the local store and purchase a premade basket, but what’s the fun in that? With a little thinking ahead, you can fill a basket with some special books, a stuffed animal and some piece of chocolate. Of course, we know that Easter is more than the bunnies, colored eggs, and a pretty basket. Let’s use this holiday to provide some new books and opportunities for growth that also deliver lots of fun!

Easter Basket Ideas from Zonderkidz
If you are looking for ideas to fill your kids Easter baskets, then I’ve got some great books and ideas for you.
Fill your basket with books
We’ve always provided lots of books for the kids at every age, but this year there are some really great options from Zonderkidz no matter what their age.
Legend of the Sand Dollar This book is even more fun, when you bring out some of the sand dollars you have collected from former beach trips.
Younger kids may enjoy The Beginner’s Bible Coloring Book & Activity Book. Just don’t forget to include a new package of crayons to go with it!
Older girls will love a new coloring Faithgirlz Promises for You Devotional and fiction book with some pretty gel markers or colored pencils!
This can be a great time to upgrade your child’s Bible storybook. Then you can have some good book time on the couch with your children!
Add a Stuffed Animal
When my kids were young, we made sure there was a new stuffed animal each year at Easter. There’s just something fun about a new bunny, frog or chicken peaking out of the baskets.
Nostalgic tip: If your kids are getting too old for new stuffed animals,
then make sure you save back some of the favorite Easter animals from years past. You can store them back with the Easter baskets and eggs. Then each year those special animals can make an appearance as the holiday decor in the house! These rabbits in the pictures were a gift from a special lady that loved the kids when they were in elementary school.
Other Basket Ideas
Now that the kids are older, we sometimes find a small gift card to add in their basket along with a new book. This gives them the opportunity to buy some new music or go buy an ice cream cone as a special treat!
What are you planning to fill the Easter baskets with? Got any plans for Easter baskets this year? I’d love to hear!
