What’s going in our kids’ Easter baskets this year

13 March 2024

Just a quick post to share what’s going in our kids’ Easter baskets this year! (This might be as much for me as you – I love having the record of what they’re loving and how they’re growing each year.)

I know Easter baskets are not for everyone, but I’ve really grown to love the opportunity they give me to celebrate an important holiday in our faith, support small businesses, replenish basics at the turn of the season, and create some magic for our kids. And personally, as a creative person, they’re just really fun for me to collect, curate, arrange, and fluff! I might enjoy them even more than the kids :)

This year, it turns out everyone is well-stocked with some of my usual suspects: bathing suits (I usually turn to Boden, Hanna Andersson, or a consignment sale), pajamas (consignment sale, always), swim goggles, water bottles, sunglasses, chalk, and Natives. I still came up with some sweet goodies, though :) Here’s what each of our kids will be getting in their Easter baskets this year (note that some items are still en route to me!):

June, age 8, will have a sketch pad (this brand is the best, and reasonably priced!), a spiral notebook bought from a favorite local shop, socks, stickers, a jump rope, a Brain Quest deck, a stopwatch (I predict this will be one of the most popular items), a few Yoto cards I’ve stored up from our Yoto Club membership, dark chocolate caramel bunnies, conditioner, and the CSB One Big Story Bible. (We were going back and forth between it and the Explorer Bible!)

Shep, age 5, will have a sketch pad, a stopwatch (it was a two-pack!), dive gems, a snack container for kindergarten, bath bombs, a paint-by-sticker book, a few Yoto cards, chocolate pocky sticks, and new sneakers. We’re going with Kiziks (the Athena) since he’s busted through the velcro on his last two pairs when the rest of the sneaker still looked brand new – argh! You can use this link for $20 off a pair, if you’d like.

Annie, age 2, will have a sketch pad (she’ll fill it with scribbles but will love being just like her big sibs), a Gabby’s Dollhouse magic coloring set, dot-a-dot markers, Bluey water squirters for the pool, Laura Wifler’s new book, a mini Squishmallow (weirdly, this pack was $20 less when I bought it in November?!), bath bombs, and a few Yoto cards.

If you’re shopping for different ages than we are this year, I’ve got you covered:
A 7-year-old girl, a 4-year-old boy, and a 1-year-old girl
A 6-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy
A 5-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy
A 4-year-old girl and a 1-year-old boy

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite Easter basket books and picks here, too! Affiliate links are used in this post.

Happy celebrating, friends!
