One of my favorite childhood memories is how careful my mother was to create traditions. On Valentine’s Day, she had a little handicraft party for our friends; Christmas meant baking cookies and tree hunting with hide and seek and ice cream (if that doesn’t mean the Texan winter); and at Easter she always organized the basket hunt on Easter morning. Our baskets would contain gifts that are specific to each child and their interests, from books to art supplies, Lego sets, nail polish and of course some goodies too. Now that my mom has set the bar so high, I’m on the hunt for great gift ideas for kids for Easter that can also serve as games and activities to keep our little bunnies smiling on this special holiday.
But of course you don’t have to spend a lot of money showering your kids with 20 gifts every time a vacation goes around. Often times, a carefully chosen gift or DIY activity is just as cute together.
So if you’re looking for something special (that will bring joy beyond a day), read on to find the perfect Easter kid gift ideas that will delight your little ones and make it easy to celebrate spring. To make your shopping easier, we’ve divided our selection into three categories: things to read, play with, and carry. Happy shopping, Easter bunny!
