Easter is just around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about gifts for easter to put in your kid's Easter basket. Instead of filling it with the same plastic easter eggs, why not mix things up with unique and fun treats and gifts your kids will love?

Here are some ideas to help you create a one-of-a-kind Easter basket for your child.

1. Not-Your-Usual Candy

Freeze dried candy is a great addition to any Easter basket for kids. These treats are made by removing all the moisture from the candy, which gives them a unique texture and flavor. They come in various flavors and shapes, from strawberries and bananas to marshmallows and even ice cream. Plus, it's fun to introduce your child to new flavors and textures. 

Here are some other not-so-common treats you can put in your kid’s Easter basket:

  • Chocolate-covered insects: If your child is an adventurous eater, add some chocolate-covered insects, such as crickets or mealworms. These treats are high in protein and make for a unique snack.
  • Gourmet popcorn: Add some gourmet popcorn in unique flavors, such as caramel turtle or hot fudge sundae. This is a great snack to enjoy while watching movies as a family.
  • Artisanal candy: Look for artisanal sweets made in small batches with unique flavors, such as champagne-flavored gummies or lavender caramels.
2. Art Supplies

For the creative child in your life, consider adding art supplies to their Easter basket. You can include items like crayons, markers, coloring books, and sketch pads. You can also add things like stickers, glitter, and paint. 

With warmer weather right around the corner, another great option is sidewalk chalk that comes in various shapes, including bunnies and easter eggs! This will keep your little artist busy for hours, and they'll be grateful for the chance to explore their creative side. 

3. Puzzle Games

Puzzle games are a great way to keep your child's mind engaged while they're having fun. Add a Rubik's Cube, a wooden puzzle, or a maze game to your child's Easter basket. These items will help improve your child's problem-solving skills in fun and innovative ways.

4. Outdoor Games

Spring is the perfect time to get your kids outside and active. Add outdoor games to your child's Easter basket, like jump ropes, a bug-catching kit, or a frisbee. This will encourage them to get outside and enjoy the fresh air while they explore the world around them.

5. Books

Whether you have a little bookworm or a child who struggles to enjoy reading, consider adding some books to their Easter basket. You can add a new book from their favorite series or a fun picture book. Reading is an excellent way to improve your child's language and literacy skills as they grow and develop, so this is a great way to make learning fun.

6. Snacks

Of course, no Easter basket is complete without some snacks. Instead of the usual candy, try adding some healthy snacks to your child's Easter basket. You can add things like fruit leather, nuts, or granola bars. You can also add some fun snacks like veggie chips.

7. Toys

Small toys are a great gift to include in an Easter Basket. You can add things like a stuffed animal, a small toy car, or a doll. Make sure to choose age-appropriate toys that your child will enjoy.
