As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I love a reason to celebrate with my girls, and so I love to do something fun for them on holidays. Whether it’s an activity, a gift, or just some dedicated time together. For Easter I enjoy putting together a little basket of things for them which often includes some Easter candy, toys, and a book.
If you’re like me, and like to celebrate the holidays with your children, I hope this post will give you some Easter gift inspiration. And as I always like to add in posts like this, you don’t NEED to buy anything. Your children will love and appreciate time with you just as much (if not more) as they will a gift from you.
These adorable push-along rabbits are the perfect easter gift. They are so loved by all of our girls, and they even look like they’re hopping when you push them.

Our adorable Eco-Kids chalks are the perfect little gift, even more so for Easter with their adorable egg shapes, and pastel colors.

Kitpas Bath Crayons
Bath crayons are a wonderful gift for a wide range of ages, my girls (1-10 years) all thoroughly enjoy them. I love that the mess is contained within the bath, and it's easy to clean since the water is right there. And my girls will usually clean up their drawings with a sponge while they play, so the clean up on my end is super minimal. We have three different colorways available, so you’re bound to find one that your littles will love.

What kiddo doesn't love a good bath? Bubbles or bath bombs are one of my girls' favorite gifts to receive. They're always super excited to try them out, and I love that they are consumable, so they work for any and every holiday/occasion as the previously purchased ones will have been used. We're currently on the hunt for some good eco-friendly bubble bath. Lush tends to be my go-to for bath bombs, and I plan to try Dabble & Dollop bubbles.

In my humble opinion, everyone needs these sensory stones. They are so much fun, and I really love how versatile they are. We've lost some of our lovely wooden toys over the years to mold because our girls played with them outside or in water. These stones completely eliminate this concern, and I love that they can take their play outside.

If you've read my other blogs you'll know that I'm a big advocate for sensory play. Playdough is one of my absolute favorite sensory activities. It's quick and easy to set up, and despite getting a bad rep with parents, it's actually pretty quick to clean up (especially in comparison to rice or beans). Our Eco playdough is absolutely wonderful, and since it comes in the primary colors, it can easily be mixed to create a whole array of colors.

Bubbles are always a winner with kids, and Dr Zigs are the king of all bubbles. They use an environmentally friendly formula, that is amazing for small and big bubbles alike (and when I say big, I mean BIG).

The sensory play advocate within me couldn’t help but mention it twice. Sensory rice is a wonderful way to create a themed sensory bin. We have a beautiful Spring Meadow sensory rice that is perfect for Easter.

Our family loves a good themed book, and there's so many great ones out there for Easter. We love to pick one up from a thrift store or from Thriftbooks to be a little more environmentally friendly.
Wooden animals get a lot of love in our house, so adding one to the collection is always super exciting for the girls. We have a nice collection to choose from over on our site.

I hope this helps if you're looking for some Easter basket ideas.
