How to Make the Cutest Kid's Easter Basket

How to Make the Cutest Kid's Easter Basket

Easter is approaching fast - and if you want to curate a cute Easter basket for your kiddos, we got you! Check out these adorable ideas for aesthetic, fun, and festive Easter baskets for 2024:

The Basket:

The basket might just be the most important part of the entire "Easter basket." Sure, you can grab a cheap plastic bucket from Walmart - but that basket will go straight to the basement for the rest of the year collecting dust.

A better idea? Pick a basket you'll use year-round - whether it be nursery decor, extra organization for your bathroom, or a multi-use caddy you can use for crafts, diapers, or laundry supplies. Here are a few ideas:

Parker Baby Co. Basket

Either our Rope Diaper CaddyFelt Diaper Caddy, or Rope Storage Cube are great options for a useful Easter basket! They are soft, have plenty of room for your child's goodies, and have so many uses. The felt diaper caddy even has a removable insert (so you can have extra room for your Easter basket, but compartments when you convert it to nursery/laundry room/craft room organization). Check out our Easter basket options here.

Easter Baskets by Parker Baby Co.

See something new? We're coming out with a NEW Quilt pattern late March - so stay tuned for the perfect blanket for your little sunshine... 👀☀️

Felt Duck Easter Basket

If you want to take a more festive approach, this Felt Duck Easter Basket is adorable. They also have other animal options, so you can get a matching set for all your kids! Repurpose as playroom or nursery toy storage.

Wire Easter Basket

This simplistic wire Easter basket is affordable, cute, and can be used for so many things! Throw hand towels inside for bathroom storage, store cleaning supplies under your sink, or use as a fruit basket - overall, this is a great option if you want to repurpose.

The Goodies Inside:

Now for the fun part - the goodies inside! We've included cute ideas from affordable to fancy. Let's hop in:

Cuddle + Kind Easter Stuffies

Cuddle + Kind dolls aren't cheap - but they are so adorable, and your child will adore them for years. They're the kind of toy you pass down for generations. Their Easter collection is so cute (and on sale) so make sure to check them out!

A Soft & Snuggly Quilt

If your child doesn't already have a special blanket they cherish, it's time to get them one. Check out our Quilt options here - we have everything from simple, gender-neutral designs to adorable prints that will match your child's nursery or bedroom perfectly. Made with 4 layers of natural muslin cotton, they last years and get softer with each wash. Order one here!

Psst!! If you missed it above - we're releasing a NEW Quilt in late March... stay tuned for a brand new pattern that will brighten your day... 😉☀️

Easter Baskets for Boys and Girls

Easter Finger Puppets

These Easter Finger Puppets are so fun and cute, and if you have a toddler they will love playing with them. They're soft and festive - perfect for an Easter basket goodie! Order them here.

Guess How Much I Love You Board Book

This board book is simple and sweet, and if you don't have it already it's a great addition to your child's Easter basket! The board book version is super affordable, and with bunnies as the main characters, the story is perfect for Easter. Grab a copy before Easter here!

Baby Girl Headbands

Every Easter dress needs to be paired with a cute headband! Our Grace Set is perfect for the newborns - they are so soft, won't pull your baby's hair, and will feel safe and secure on her head. If you're looking for something a little daintier, our Wildflower Braided Headbands are the cutest option! They come in a 10-pack of either infant or toddler sized headbands, and they are perfectly springy. Check out our baby headband options here!

Baby Girl Easter Basket

Wooden Easter Eggs

I love Odin Parker - they make the cutest heirloom handmade baby and kids toys! For Easter they're selling handmade wooden eggs as well as an egg hunting set and a turtle/dinosaur toy for your little one. If you're looking to make your Easter basket really pop this year, this is the way to go.

Good candy... 

It's simply undebatable: Robin Eggs are the best Easter candy by far. And since you can really only enjoy them this time of year, make sure you grab a bag! Don't forget Peeps, Cadbury Eggs, and all your favorite Easter candies when you were a kid (mine happens to be chocolate covered sunflower seeds, call me weird but I think they're amazing 😋)!

Parker Baby Co. Bandana Bibs

If you're building an Easter basket for your baby, make sure to throw in something you'll find useful too (aka some soft, absorbent drool bandana bibs). Our Vail SetDune Set, and Arctic Set have all the neutral Easter colors you're looking for, and they're a great option to add to your child's Easter basket.

The Donkey Who Carried The King Book

If you're looking to share the story behind Easter with your little ones, this book is amazing! It tells the story of the crucifixion through the eyes of the donkey who carried Jesus into Jerusalem, and the pictures are stunning. Order a copy here!

Veggie Felt Craft Set

Looking to get crafty this Easter? This little felt sewing kit is so cute, and the finished product is a toy all in itself. This goody is great if you want something interactive to do with your kids this Easter.

Easter Mad Libs

Another interactive Easter basket goodie, this time funny! If you have older kids, this is a great option. Fill out each mad lib together as a family for some good old-fashioned Easter comedy. Order the Easter edition here.

Dinosaur Chocolate Egg

Ditch chocolate bunnies this year for something more exciting! If your kids are in their "dinosaur phase," this dino chocolate egg is genius. Sure, it's a bit of a splurge - but it's a lot of chocolate, and the inside holds the cutest surprise for your little paleontologist. Order an egg here!

Baby Boy with Parker Baby Co. Easter Basket

Aaaand Make It Cute (Without Making a Mess)

Growing up, my mom always filled our Easter baskets with colored cotton foam, which inevitably got everywhere and made a huge mess. If you're hoping to make your Easter baskets cute without the mess, here are a few easy options:

Paper Shreds

Pull them from your paper shredder or grab a bag of brown shredded paper at your local grocery store! It creates a fun "nest" look to your basket, and the shreds are big enough to pick up pretty easily after your kids open their baskets.

Simple Ribbon

Go the simplistic route and put a bow on it! Simply take the handles of your Easter basket and tie a ribbon on top - you can find any color or pattern you're looking for at your local craft store.

No-Mess Easter Grass

This no-mess Easter grass gives the appearance of that horrific Easter tinsel - without involving the mess. Super cute, reusable every year, and adds that festive final touch to your Easter basket - a worthy investment!

That's all we have for now! Hopefully these ideas help you make a cute Easter basket this year your child will love. Happy Easter mamas!
