If you’re a fan of Easter baskets, but don’t like actually *filling* them, this post is for you!
Coming up with fun, fresh ideas for your child’s Easter basket can be tough. I love candy as much as the next person, but there’s a limit. When you combine all of the holidays where candy is involved, they have a steady stream of it!
My children are 8 and 12, so coming up with fresh, unique ideas is a challenge – but I’m up to the task this year! My kids love Harry Potter (my daughter is downright obsessed!), and they both love squishies and cute things that they can set on their desks at school.
I was recently sent a bunch of mini toys from Jakks Pacific and the minute I saw them I thought, “Easter!”.
Check out my three favourites for your child’s Easter basket this year. There’s something on this list for little kids all the way up to tweens.
Harry Potter Die Cast Wands
These 4″ mini wands are metal, display quality collectibles that each come with their own stand. The first series contains 12 different wands from favourite Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts characters. I know my daughter will want the Luna Lovegood wand. Who knows what she’ll get? As they say, “the wand chooses YOU!”. ($5.57; Age 8+)
Squish-Dee-Lish Mystery Packs
There’s something about squishy toys that almost every kid loves, especially the slow-rise foam ones. The Squish-Dee-Lish are treat-themed squishies that combine animals and sweet foods like cupcakes, donuts and more. They’re small enough to tuck away in a pocket or hold in a hand, and will put smiles on your kiddos’ faces!
Of course, there will be a bit of good quality chocolate in my kids’ Easter baskets this year, but it’s nice to have something else – that won’t rot their teeth! – included in their special treats from the bunny! ($4.99; Age 6+)
Who’s Your Llama? Mini Collectibles
Llamas seem to be everywhere these days, and these ones are THE cutest! Each llama comes packaged in a cute camper box with their own adorable outfit and the ability to do one silly thing – wink, stick out their tongue, spit or grin. You won’t know which you’ll get until you open the package, though! They come in many different colours and styles so your child will have a fun time with their herd! Hipsta Llama and Fairy Llama are my favourites! You can check them all out here. ($8.99; Age 4+)
