New Ball

What two-year-old doesn’t want a new ball? A new ball is going to last way longer than candy anyway! This Infantino Textured Ball Set is awesome because it has a variety of balls with different textures. And, I feel like we’re always losing things, so there are plenty.

New Shoes

I just went to one of my local show stores and stocked up on the clearance section of out of season shoes. I did the same thing last season, which means my kids will be getting a new pair of summer shoes in their Easter basket this year. No need to worry if you haven’t already shopper. These shoes by Stride Rite are super cute and affordable for just about any budget. By the way, this is just a cute sample of what Stride Rite has- they’re awesome!

Gardening Kit

Does your toddler love play in the dirt? Boys and girls both love to dig and help outside. We do a garden every year, and our kids love playing in the freshly tilled up dirt. They put their super adorable rain boots on, grab their kid-friendly gardening kit, and join us in our work in the muddy mess.

Coloring Books and Crayons

As a kid, I can still remember the joy that came with a new coloring book and a fresh box of crayons. Even the 8-pack of crayons was amazing because NO ONE had ever touched them. Some of my favorite coloring books for toddlers are this Sesame Street set, this Disney and Friends set, and of course Crayola for crayons.

New Pajamas

Much like clothes and shoes, I feel like my kids grow out of pajamas super-fast! These Simple Joys by Carter’s pajamas are affordable and adorable, appropriate for girls and boys, and will make a great addition to your toddler Easter basket this year.

Fun Snacks

I am yet to find a kid who doesn’t like fruit snacks. Their fruity and chewing and oh so delicious. Annie’s Bunny Fruit Snacks are my favorite because they’re organic, non-GMO and kid-friendly. I do always watch my kids closely with fruit snacks just to make sure they don’t choke. Another one of our favorite snacks is Clif Kid ZBAR’s. They’re great as a snack, but my kids also like them for breakfast.




Easter Basket Ideas With(out) Candy

These are some of my favorite Easter basket ideas for 2-year-olds.

And, just because I didn’t throw in candy, doesn’t mean a little bit of Easter candy is a bad thing.

Be creative with your kids’ Easter baskets, and make them unique for each of your kids!
