Easter was an interesting time when my daughter was essentially still a baby.. I wanted to celebrate with her and get her gifts, but I didn’t know what was safe to get her. Needless to say, I figured some things out for her that worked and were still a lot of fun. I also didn’t know what Easter activities to engage in while she’s still in this very young stage of her life. Thus, I’d like to first offer my suggestions for Easter basket stuffers for older babies and toddlers, and then discuss Easter activities that are appropriate for this age.
I love the prefilled pack of eggs that are filled with stuffed animals! The Melissa and Doug stuffed bunny is super adorable, and it has great reviews on Amazon!
Both of these books have great reviews on Amazon! My daughter absolutely adores Pete the Cat, so I will probably be getting her this book for Easter!
The third book is titled “My First Easter.” It’s the #1 Best Seller in Children’s Christian Holiday Fiction. This book does an excellent job explaining the family traditions associated with this holiday. It also has excellent reviews!
These are adorable shirts. My daughter loves dinosaurs, so I think I will be getting here this shirt! The dress comes in pink or yellow, and it’s appropriate for ages 0-3 years of age.
The Easter Coloring Book Super Set for Kids includes 2 spring books with stickers and crayons. There are more than 60 stickers in this set!
The first toy is TOMY Toomies Hide and Squeak Eggs, and this includes 2 matching games. There are 6 eggs with unique colors and shapes, so this toy promotes recognition of colors and shapes. The eggs will crack open to show 6 colorful chicks. The eggs can be sorted into their spaces, as each egg has it’s own specific base inside the box.
The Wooden Percussion Egg Shakers are good for both baby and toddler. It comes with 6 eggs that are brightly colored, and according to the product description, it is a great early learning toy. Babies can start to learn cause and effect (as in shaking the egg causes noise). It’s also great for toddlers, as they can learn to feel the rhythm when they shake the egg.
The carrot teether is the perfect gift for a teething baby. It does have 2 teething sides.
Crayola My First Egg Crayons: These crayons are sized for toddler hands. These crayons come in 3 bright colors, red, blue, and yellow. The Amazon reviews for these crayons are great!
I typically get M&M’s and smarties as candy for my daughter, as these don’t pose much of a choking hazard now as she is older than 2. I still stay away from any hard candy.
Candy is always a great traditional Easter basket stuffer!
I got my daughter bubbles on Easter right after she had turned one. She has been fascinated with bubbles ever since, and I continue to get bubbles for her for other holidays and for her birthday.
Pacifiers can be a good gift for babies and potentially younger toddlers.
1.Easter Egg Hunt: I didn’t do this until my daughter had just turned 2. I only used the plastic eggs, and we wound up doing an easter egg hunt indoors because of how cold it was outside. This turned out great! Another idea for a toddler Easter egg hunt can be found here
(And it includes balloons, which my daughter loves!!)
This craft looks easy and super cute and something I’d like to try! You can make cards or decorations with this!
This sensory bin uses colored rice and plastic eggs, and it can keep toddlers busy for quite a while.
I’m in love with this Easter Egg Sun Catcher! This craft is great for helping with a toddler with their fine motor skills as well!
This craft involves an easter egg made out of salt dough with your child’s hand print in the middle of it.
This looks like such a fun activity for toddlers and even older babies! You will need a big box, plastic eggs, scissors, packing tape, and a cardboard trifold display board.
This is an easy activity for sensory play, but it can also be used as a calm down jar.
All you need is plastic eggs, pom-poms, and a muffin tin!
This activity is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers!
Enjoy your Easter with your little ones!! If you like this post, please share it!!
