Last Minute Fun & Practical Easter Basket Gifts

If you're like me, you've waited until the last minute to buy Easter basket fillers! Below are some non-candy fun (and some practical) Easter gift ideas that you can get in 2 days via Amazon Prime...happy shopping!

Activity books
I think these are a win/win for both parents and kids! I personally love the Kumon activity books (and so does Max) but there are also ways to incorporate your child's favorite characters + learning too!

Is my kid the only kid that gets SUPER excited for new shoes? Crocs are so easy for toddlers to put on, they make my life so much easier!

Hygiene items
New toothbrushes, toothpaste and bandaids. You'd be surprised how quickly a Spiderman toothbrush can make nightly brushing a fun activity!

It's Spring in the Midwest, which means Summer is just around the corner! I would be buying the boys new swimsuits anyways, so why not include them as part of their basket?

Craft sets 
These are great for rainy days! With my help, Max built and paint the 3 wooden cars in the Wooden Cars craft kit from Made by Me! It was so much for him to build these from scratch, paint and then be able to play with his own creation.

  1. These are great ideas for a alternative to candy!

  2. I always got new toothbrushes and toothpaste from the Easter bunny! haha. A swimsuit is also a great idea because it will put everyone into a warm weather mood.

  3. Great ideas! My children get way too much chocolate at Easter it's nice to get them something different too.

  4. These are great ideas. I love the wood cars. What a great gift.

  5. These are great list as gift to kids this Easter Sunday. I'll get one or two items for my niece.
