Easter Baskets are so much fun to put together, but sometimes, finding the perfect fillers can be challenging.I don’t know about you, but I try to pick out items that are fun, affordable, and last longer than candy. If you are looking for last minute fillers that will not end up in the trash or leave you dealing with those sugar crashes, you’ve come to the right place. My kids range in age and here are some of my favorite things they will find in their baskets this year.
VTech® Learn & Spin Aquarium™
Take your littlest bunnies on an underwater adventure with the Learn & Spin Aquarium from Vtech. Kids will love pressing the water spout and watching as the ocean creatures come to life. They swim, spin, and sing playfully as the lights flash. The toy also has three colorful buttons that teach animals, numbers, and colors. It is available at Walmart or Amazon for $14.99. For ages 9 to 36 months.
Leapfrog Tad’s Fridge Phonics™
For my busy toddler, Tad’s Fridge Phonics was an easy choice. This interactive toy introduces letters and the sounds they make, both an important step in learning to read. It features three modes of play that are easy to access by placing one of the 26 musical letters into the slot and pressing down. This learning toy is magnetic and the frames are even customizable for personalized play. Tad’s Fridge Phonics helps your developing toddler build vocab skills and fine motor skills. You can find it at Walmart and Target for $19.99. For ages 2 and up.
Discovery Quick Sand
Keep the kids entertained during Spring or Summer break with Discovery Quick Sand. With this kit, they can create slimy sand that not only swallows up solid objects, but also glows in the dark. It mimics real quicksand, so kids over the age of 6 can have fun while learning about nature. It is available at Michaels and Bed Bath & Beyond.
Horizon Group USA has a complete line of educational, craft, and magic activity kits. Their large selection also includes Discovery Liquid Ice and Discovery Rainbow Putty. Prices vary depending on the kit.
Aerobie Pro Ring™
Keep those pre-teens and teens active and enjoying the beautiful weather with this Aerobie Pro Ring. The flying disc has a thin, aerodynamic design that helps it travel incredibly long distances making it an excellent choice for exciting games of catch. In fact, it travels so far that it set the Guinness World Record for the farthest throw at 1,333 feet. The ring has soft edges and an open center for easy catching. It also comes in assorted color. You can find it at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Toys“R”Us, and other major retail stores for $9.99. It is for ages 12 and up.
My kids are going to love their baskets this year and I am excited to see their smiles on Easter morning. Of course, I will throw in a smal chocolate bunny and some other small items, but these gifts are sure to be their favorites.
