Just because it’s an Easter basket doesn’t mean it has to be full of candy! Get them excited to hop into spring with this Spring Easter Basket Idea.
Thanks to Mirum for inspiring Easter fun ideas with this sponsored post.
Through the years I’ve done pretty good with egg decorating and egg hunting, but I’ll admit, the Easter egg basket hasn’t been my forte.
Mostly because the idea of voluntarily giving my kids a whole basket of sugar is never on my agenda. So when we gave baskets it was full of things like activity books, small toys, etc. However, a lot like bad birthday party favors, I’d rather not give anything if it’s not good.
Let’s face it, if it’s not, we moms throw out the junk. It’s what we do.
So this Easter basket season, only good ideas to the rescue. Items that my kids can use, that my kids want, stuff I don’t mind them having, and most of all anything that can keep them occupied!
After a cold winter, it’s time to get ready to get outdoors which is what inspired this “Hop into Spring” Easter basket. Full of things to keep the kids outdoors, enjoying spring, and keeping them moving from sun up to sun down! It’s so important to get the opportunity to enjoy the perfect temperatures and beautiful work of Mother Nature!
And best of all, I was able to get it all at Walmart, which has some awesome things to put together a great Easter basket. And most everything was just a few dollars, making it super easy to make a quality basket.
“Hop into Spring” Easter Basket Idea:
- Cute Basket: This baby even comes with the bow and can be used for a picnic basket later!
- Bunny Ears: Bunnies. Hopping. You get it.
- Sunglasses: To protect those cute little eyes!
- Kite: In the words of Mary Poppins “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.”
- Bubbles: Because bubbles.
- Pinwheel: You can’t go wrong with
- Balloon Launcher: Water balloons make everything better.
- Emoji Frisbee: Frisbees are fun for everyone.
- Beach Towel: Either to sit on or wipe down from the balloons.
- Slim Jim Smoked Snacks: All this activity is going to work up an appetite! Thankfully our version of “meat and cheese” includes Slim Jim Smoked Snacks (26 ct.) in just the right size and cheese popcorn!

That is an awesome idea. My oldest loves Slim Jims and it never even occurred to me to put some in his basket.
I love making Easter baskets for my kids. These are a great idea!!
That looks like a fun Easter basket. This year for Easter we are actually not going to be home so I had to find items that are not going to melt. This is definitely going to be added to my list of things to get for my Easter basket.
Melissa Chapman says
It is such a great idea to avoid the sweets in your basket. I have not had Slim Jim for many years but they do look so good.
Dawn Lopez says
I love this idea for Easter! Some kids can’t have candy so this is a great alternative basket.
Amy Desrosiers says
I know a little boy and girl who would be all over these baskets! I think they look fab and fun!
I love making Easter baskets for my girls. It’s fun to put them together yourself. I do that every year. I always buy the items separate.
What a great Easter gift ideas! I love mixing in toys and treats for the kiddies!

I love coming up with new and fun ideas for Easter baskets. These are really great ideas. I love the idea of sunglasses and bunny ears!
Your Easter Basket is awesome! I love easter baskets that aren’t filled with candy. And I am pretty sure my boys would go crazy over the Slim Jim!
