Useful Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas for Girls
First, I start with practical gifts because they are items you NEED, plus they can be exciting to kids! Win-win!
Garden Essentials: Does your girl love helping outside? Put seeds in her basket along with gloves and a small shovel. She’ll enjoy getting involved in the yard work with mom and dad.
Bath Stuff: A fun new pink bath towel, soap, and cute washcloths are all things you need, plus making bathing time more fun.
Hair Accessories: I swear my daughter’s hair takes a life of its own! Fun hair ties, and a quality hairbrush are a must. I’ve heard so many good things about these Wet Brushes.
Plus, if your girl is into scrunchies, then these Easter bunny scrunchies are a super cute gift!
Curiosity & Learning Gifts for Easter
Next, develop their curiosity and exploration with these items!
A Butterfly Growing Kit: A butterfly growing kit is still our favorite gift EVER (for either gender). Nothing beats watching nature in action!
Puzzle: These are always a winner. Go with her interests or stick with any spring themes like weather, animals, and rainbows.
Painting or craft supplies: Are you running low on these items? Stock your child back up with glue, paints, brushes, googly eyes, popsicle sticks, and more.
Art supplies: My girls LOVE to color, so this pink art case is a perfect gift to stick in their basket!
Scratch Art: Along the lines of art, these scratch art activity books from Melissa and Doug are the perfect size to take on car trips and on the go!
