Every year I think about how I can make the kids’ Easter basket fun but practical. I love making them, but I don’t like filling them up with useless items. The last thing I want as a mom of 4 is another useless toy that ends up in the trash bin. Easter baskets are such a big part of my family’s tradition, so this year I put together Easter baskets that are mindful, yet useful for the kids.
To mix things up this year, I decided to make the kids’ Easter baskets in monochromatic tones. Tess is a teenager and really into green and sage colors, so her basket was curated with that color in mind. D is still a toddler loves the show Bluey and of course the color blue, so his basket was filled with some of his favorite things in blue!
Tessa’s monochromatic green Easter basket:
- Silk pillowcase
- Silk eye mask
- Aloe face masks
- Face serum
- Face wash
- Fuzzy slippers
- Easter eggs filled with assorted green crystals
- Mini succulent
- Eucalyptus scented candle
You can find some additional items for your teen’s Easter basket here. Not only is Tess going to use everything in this basket, but she’s also going to love that it’s all in her favorite color with is very Gen-Z aesthetic these days. 🙂
Declan’s monochromatic blue Easter basket:
- Blue train
- Bunny blanket
- Dinosaur coloring book
- Colored pencils
- Dinosaur stickers
- Mini erasers (these are perfect since he’s finally starting pre-school soon!)
- Blue Easter eggs filled with his favorite candies
- Blue Peeps (a classic Easter item, I had to include for him!)
If you have a toddler who is into different colors and you also like the monochromatic look, you can consider filling the basket with some items that I put together on my Amazon list here.
I put together the toddler Easter basket items in blue and purple, so feel free to choose which color you want to go with depending on their favorite color!
I also share some additional basket ideas for babies in the yellow and orange color scheme on my Amazon storefront here. If you want to surprise your neighbor, friend, or significant other with a fun Easter basket that is tasteful and age appropriate, check out my neutral basket ideas here.
I’d love to see your Easter baskets this year, especially if you decide to make them monochromatic like I did! Comment below if you found my lists helpful or if you have any fun Easter basket ideas to share too!
