Easter Basket Ideas for Kids

Easter Basket Ideas for Kids

Easter is right around the corner and spring is definitely springing here in Northern California!  Spring time is so pretty here with all the bulbs and trees blooming.  I love seeing all the baby animals and sharing the story of Easter with my kids.   Once the trees start blooming, I start looking for Easter basket ideas for my kids.  I may be given and/or compensated with product for this post.   This post may contain affiliate links to those products. In some cases, I may receive additional compensation as a result of clicking the links.   Although I may be given some of the items you see in this post, all opinions contained in this post are my own and only endorse those products that I love!

In addition to mentally prepping my Easter Table (and the pretty printables that will go on it), I start planning my kids’ Easter Basket.  I hate that the Easter Bunny brings so much candy so I’m always on the lookout for something that my kids can play with long after the holiday is over.   This year, I want to add to our Magformers collection.

If you aren’t familiar with MAGFORMERS, they are the industry leader in magnetic building toys for children.  They are strong and you can build all kinds of 3D structures while playing with the engineering and science behind it.  Here’s a bit about them from their website:

“We believe it is vital for children to develop through creativity and our patented, ‘always attracting’ magnetic technology delivers a unique constructional play experience. It is MAGFORMERS commitment to providing a high quality, reliable product that inspires the creators of the future

Create 3D structures from 2D nets with MAGFORMERS NEW 26Pc NEON Set. Containing Neon colored squares and triangles that are ideal for little fingers to hold, the 26Pc is the perfect toy for building the ‘magic ball’, houses, towers and much more! See what your imagination will create!

Each geometric shape contains magnets that never reject, so you’ll always hear the MAGFORMERS click. When playtime is over, use the magnetic power to simply stack and store!

My kids have loved these forever – and my 6 and 9 year old still love to play with these.

The neon set is new – and totally fun!   Have you played with them before?  If not, you can save 30% on your order from Magformers with this code when checking out: Magformers30

Another fun Easter basket idea is to include summer items.  I love to get my kids things like goggles, masks, fins, and beach towels.   This year my daughter is getting these goggles and my son is getting these ones.    I also love these snorkel sets.

Would love to hear your Easter basket ideas!
