Creative Easter Basket Ideas For Kids Of ALL Ages

This page features creative, unconventional Easter Basket Ideas, and also provides links to other Easter holiday items.

Traditional Easter symbols are of two types.

  1. Commercial Easter symbols include eggs, chicks, bunnies, and various flowers.
  2. Religious images associated with this holiday include crosses, goblets, doves, lilies, and stained glass windows. 

Traditional Easter color schemes involve white and yellow, as well as pastel colors such as pale blue, pale green, and pink. 

Here are some fresh, creative, eco-friendly ways to make truly unique and much appreciated Easter gift baskets:

1) The basket itself is part of the gift, so make it work!

*** For a cooking enthusiast (or anyone who just loves food), make a batch of dough and fashion a bread basket like the one shown below.

*** It's also easy to make a mini Easter basket from a recycled Starbucks coffee cup (as shown above with Maple Leaf cookies inside).

2) To line an Easter basket, use fresh grasses, bark, pretty weeds, wild flowers, or other organic materials, instead of the usual shredded green cellophane. 

3) Fill your Easter basket NOT with fattening candy and sugary treats, but with thoughtful, colorful gifts appropriate to the recipient. For instance, 


  • A writer might appreciate cool stationery, post-it note pads, and colored pens or pencils.
  • For a gardener, fill the basket with seed packets and bulbs, or maybe a potted plant.
  • What sports enthusiast could possibly resist a basket full of sports memorabilia (lined with Astro turf, perhaps?), maybe even containing coveted tickets to a local event?
  • For children, fill the basket with cute, small inexpensive items like trading cards, stickers, temporary tattoos, key chains and other trinkets.
