Thankfully Easter is in late April this year which means my kids may actually be able to do an egg hunt in something less than a winter parka and mittens. But does this extra times mean I’ve finished all my Easter basket shopping? Oh, of course not.
If you’re in my same boat and still need to put something into those cute baskets, take a look at some of these great items we found, all for under $15 each. Just hop quick and place your orders today–Easter will be here before you know it. -Christina
Arts and crafts
The all-natural homemade play-dough from Liliannelee
(above) will entertain my kids while dinner finishes cooking. You can even get the dough scented with lavender
which may take the edge off a sugar crash.
Cool, not junky, toys
Give the kids something fun to play with after the egg hunt like the super-cute race cars
from Green Toys or a simple animal puzzle from ImagiPLAY
. And, what would Peter Rabbit tuck into an Easter basket? A carrot of course! I love this smiling organic one from Under the Nile
. (all at Wild Dill
Candy, candy and (of course) candy
Peter Rabbit loves kids with allergies too, so my oldest always finds some special treats from Divvies
in her basket. Love their new Chocolate Bag Kit
which would require a little work on my part ahead of time, but has big “wow” potential.
Don’t expect glow-in-the-dark colors with these all-natural vegan marshmallow critters
from Kate’s Caring Gifts
. They have loads of other organic and vegan offerings too from companies we love like Annie’s, Surf Sweets and Yummy Earth.
