Kids' Easter Basket Gift Ideas

Easter is coming up, so it is time to start planning what to put inside your little one's Easter basket. Below are some ideas. Please leave a comment with any other ideas you have.

Easter Books:

Religious Books:

Since Easter is a religious holiday, I think it is good to put something religious in the Easter baskets. My favorite children's religious books are by Greg Olsen. I love his artwork and that the pictures look more real. So many of the religious books I have looked at for kids have cartoon characters, but I think kids prefer looking at more lifelike pages. I actually used the free Picaboo coupon and made my own "Church Book" for my son to put in his basket this year. I included stories from the bible and about Jesus and Gospel concepts.

Grow in Water Animals:

Kids love seeing little animals grow. I think these are really cool, too. Buy a 5-pack here for $3.88.

Coloring Books/Crayons/Paint/stickers:

Hit your local dollar store or Wal-Mart and find some fun art activities for your child.

Other ideas:

Bubbles, matchbox cars, stuffed animals, clothing, sand toys
