Easter is just over a week away, and if you are still needing to fill your kids’ Easter baskets, today I wanted to share what each of my boys are getting this year. To help keep shopping simple, I tend to stick to a theme of activities that get the kids outdoors, some art projects, books, and pajamas.
One | Giant bubbles are always so fun for kids and a great way to get them outside
Two | This combines an art project with getting the kids outside and working in the garden
Three | Cole had a tie dye day at school one year ago that was an absolute blast for him. I was thinking this would be a really fun activity we can do outside on a warm day.
Four | It can be hard to find books that he really loves, and I recently bought Cole the first book in this series after hearing these books are hugely popular with tween boys. He absolutely loves it so he’ll be getting a few more books from the series.
Five | When we go for bike rides we often throw a frisbee in the bike cart so we can stop for some games in the park. They always seem to end up going missing, so I wanted to make sure he has one and this one seems to be a big step above your basic frisbee.
Six | I love the idea of having the kids paint these cute little wooden Easter figures which we can put on our Easter table for years to come
Seven | Another fun park game option
Eight | This fun glider comes in a two pack, so you could split them up for multiple kids
Nine | I always love giving my kids something to plant in our garden each year as one of their Easter basket gifts
Ten | Sunny days are upon us and you can never have too many sunglasses
Eleven | I shared some of my favorite spring pajamas for kids in a recent post, but for my tween boy I definitely have to find that balance of things that I think are cute and things he will actually like. He’s really into video games so I felt that these gamer pajamas in a cheerful color are a good compromise.
Twelve | A chocolate bunny is a must, and they always get one in their basket
Thirteen | Another pajama compromise. My kiddo is obsessed with Fortnite (fellow tween parents I’m sure you feel my pain!) and I like that these are a fun spring color and don’t scream “video game themed.”
Fourteen | Evan received a really cute kids gardening set last year for Easter (similar to this) so we really don’t need more gardening tools. However Cole did need some gardening gloves so I’m tossing a pair in his basket.
One | I got both kids a stepping stone so they can each decorate their own and put in our garden area
Two | Another gift I got for both kids so they can each make their own Easter decorations
Three | Chocolate is a must
Four | Sidewalk chalk is a great outdoor activity and I love to gift egg shaped chalk in Easter baskets
Five | Bubble guns are always a hit and I know he’s going to go crazy for this shark one
Six | An Easter themed cup is fun for younger kids and you could include a favorite beverage too
Seven | I love that this car is designed for outdoor use and exploring with it’s built in magnifying glass
Eight | These farm themed hand puppets will be great for imaginative play and storytelling
Nine | A bug catching kit is always a great way to get kids outside and exploring
Ten | Last year Evan got a Minecraft sheep which he loves, so this year he’s getting a Minecraft pig. It’s a cute way to do a traditional stuffed animal for the little Minecraft lover.
Eleven | I got Evan a little flower growing kit so he can grow something for our garden this spring
Twelve | Hot Wheels make a great basket filler for any little boy
Thirteen | I knew that Evan would want video game pajamas to be like big brother, so I found him these cheery Minecraft ones
Fourteen | Evan loves the Llama Llama books so I’m sure he’ll enjoy this Easter version
Fifteen | I grabbed this little palm pet on a whim so I’m not sure if it will be a hit or not but it sure looks cute as a little basket filler
Sixteen | Slime is always fun for any kid
Seventeen | We have 2 other books from this series and they are so silly and fun for kids. I’m excited to give Evan the Easter version
Eighteen | These eggs are decorated by chalk and will be a cute decoration he can make year after year
