We have a family tradition for our Easter baskets. Every year I put the same items in our kid’s Easter baskets. Simple items that we can use all spring and summer. Rather than filling them full of candy and toys that will clutter up the playroom floor in the weeks following. Here is what I include in the Easter baskets every year.
I include a new swimsuit in the Easter baskets every year. The kids are so excited about their new swim wear and the hope of warm swimming weather.
Fun little extra swim toys. such as squirt guns, beach balls and other pool floaties. I also buy all new squirt toys, I throw out last years since they are full of mold. Anything really for them to play with in the pool, and keep them busy.
Bubbles and Chalk

Summer Outfit and Sun Glasses
Fresh new outfit for spring. It’s so much fun to start the season out with new clothes. I include a fun new sun dress, shorts, or a fun new shirt. I’m always surprised by the fact that they are excited about clothes and shades. I think they are just so excited for warmer weather.
It’s a great time to refresh our stained and worn out dinnerware. Toss out those pasta stained plates, with a new one. We spend a lot of time outside during the summer, so I always make sure the kids have new water bottles for our long days at the park. Spring is a new time to refresh those old water bottles and dinner plates!
I fill our Easter eggs with fun little kid items instead of candy. I have found that Little People fit prefect in the larger eggs. I put in NEW BOWS, and
This is what I always include in our Easter Baskets every year. Things that we will use in our daily life over the course of our next few months. The kids get so excited over these items and the hopes of warmer weather!
