Tired of the same old jelly beans? This year, wow the kids with a themed basket geared toward their favorite activities. Here are five fun ideas.
Choose a large Easter basket woven in your child’s favorite team colors. Place a ball in the center of the basket (basketball, volleyball, soccer ball, etc.—deflated if necessary) surrounded by a team-logo hat, socks, pennant, and tickets to an upcoming game. Chocolates wrapped in ball-printed foil make excellent fillers for the sports basket.
Arts and Crafts Basket
Buy a plastic Easter pail and wrap it in chalkboard contact paper. Fill with acrylic paints and brushes, drawing pads, crayons, markers, colored pencils, glitter glue, stickers, beading supplies and other colorful craft materials. Use a piece of chalk or chalk pen to write your child’s name on the bucket.
Video Game Basket
Got a gamer in the family? Surprise him (or her) with an Easter basket piled high with video games, gamer strategy books, and an iTunes gift card to spend on apps. If you’re truly ambitious, gut an old computer monitor to use as the basket. Oh how far video games have come!
Book Lover’s Basket
Stash a rectangular basket with paperbacks, bookmarks, a personal reading lamp and lots of reading-time snacks such as popcorn, Twizzlers, pretzels and M&M’s. The basket can double as a book drop beside your child’s favorite chair or bed.
Travel Toys Basket
Keep the kids occupied with a collection of travel games, perfect for your scenic drive to Grandma’s house! From road sign bingo to mini magnetic board games and lots of car-friendly snacks, a travel toys Easter basket is sure to please both the kids and the parents.
