Easter Gift Ideas for Toddlers & Preschoolers

My son is only 17 months old & I really don't like the idea of filling his Easter basket (or his Chrismas stocking) with candy & chocolate. I'll probably get lazy when he's older but while he is little I really like the idea of giving him things that I've made for him or things that he can use/ play with over the next year. 

Here's some really great ideas from all over the blogosphere:

Make a photo blocks puzzle with Not So Idle Hands

Make a Chenille Easter Bunny Softie with Karunui

Make bathtub crayons with One Crafty Place

Make a photobook out of felt with Through The Keyhole

Make a fold up crayon pouch with Craftzine

Make a Colours Quiet Book with Everyday Celebrate

Make bunny bean bags with Two Straight Lines

Make egg shaped chalk with Skip To My Lou

Make Eye Spy bags with Make It And Love It

Make chic finger puppets with Dollar store Crafts

Make leg warmers with Samster Mommy

Make a family memory game with Smart Bottom Enterprises

Make a "Dance Attack" Cd with Prudent Baby

Make a toolbelt with One Hip Mom

Make sponge koosh balls with House of Hepworths

Make a felt chocolate bunny with Playing With Your Food

Make a car caddy with Say Yes To Hoboken

Make felt flower clip barrettes with Koala Brains

Make a super cape with Deannas Stuff

Make a Chics Dig Me shirt with Just Another Day in Paradise

If your pressed for time here's some other great ideas that you can fill an Easter basket with:
bunny ears, sand toys, maracas & tambourine, Hide 'n Squeak eggs, Shape egg puzzle, blocks, books,  sippy cup,  pajamas, puzzles, stuffed animal, cup, plate, fork, spoon, placemat, skipping rope, DVD, toothbrush, toothpaste, magnadoodle,  gardening set, bubble bath, small learning toys, coloring book & crayons, sticker book, photo album & disposible camera, new shoes, a goldfish or a plant to take care of, bathing suit, pinwheel, cookie cutters, own cooking utensils

Healthy & small snacks to fill plastic Easter eggs with:
Cheerios, gold fish crackers, dried fruit, banana chips, apple chips, Little Teddies cookies, rice crackers, baby carrots, granola, popcorn, mini marshmallows (bunny tails), jelly beans

Small things to fill plastic Easter eggs with:
small bugs or animals, bath toys, bath mitt puppet, socks, underwear, stickers, small beanie baby, soft balls,  Little People, pacifiers,  stickers,  felt board figures, small bubbles, alphabet magnets, hakey saks, tattoos, small hot wheels cars, magic putty, bandaids with fun designs, rubber stamps, balloons, small beach ball, erasers, fun shaped crayons, money, play jewelry, barrettes, headbands, bandanas, whistles, ribbons, lacing beads, small bouncy balls, small playdough, craft supplies (feathers, glitter etc.), clothes for dolls, cooking apron, finger puppets

Please keep in mind that some of these things are choking hazards for younger toddlers so make sure to pick age appropriate things to fill your Easter eggs.

  2. Thanks for featuring my cape. Some great finds too!! :)

  3. I'm going the "less" candy route this year, too. The last trip to the dentist did not bare good news. :( I always love to give them new holiday books. This year, their baskets have flip flops, little note books, pens, headbands, and SUGARLESS gum and a few other fun finds! Great ideas!


  4. Those bunny bean bags are adorable.

    I used to fill those plastic eggs with cereal. Now that my children are a little older, they expect candy, *sigh*.
