Easter is a time of joy and renewal, and for many families, Easter baskets are an essential part of the celebration. However, if you're looking for a chocolate-free option, we have some creative and fun ideas that your child will love. Plus, these ideas will empower your child and provide them with positive affirmations that they can carry with them throughout their life.
- Spring-themed Basket
Celebrate the arrival of spring by creating a colourful basket filled with nature-inspired toys and books. Use a wicker basket or a jar and add spring flowers, a plush bunny, a wind-up chick, and our SunChild affirmation cards that celebrate nature and empower your child. You can also add some spring-themed books and art supplies, such as stickers, bunny books, and colouring books.
- Outdoor Exploration Basket
Encourage your child to get outside and explore nature with an outdoor exploration basket. Fill the basket with items such as binoculars, a magnifying glass, a butterfly net, an insect viewer, and a compass. You can also make a nature list of elements in nature for your child to find, such as birds, trees, flowers, and bugs. Add in some healthy snacks, such as dried fruit, nuts, and trail mix, along with our SunChild affirmation cards to inspire your child during their outdoor adventures.
- Craft Basket
If your child enjoys crafting, a craft basket can provide hours of fun and creativity. You can include a variety of crafting supplies, such as coloured paper, glue, scissors, beads, pipe cleaners, sidewalk chalk, and paint. Our SunChild colouring pages are a great addition, allowing your child to make the affirmations their own and become each affirmation with every stroke. You can also add some craft kits, such as a make-your-own bunny or a paint-your-own pottery egg kit. Finish off the basket with a few Easter-themed crafts, such as papier Mache eggs or bunny ear headbands.
- Game Basket
For kids who love games, a game basket can be a great way to keep them entertained on Easter Sunday. Include classic board games like Monopoly or Scrabble, or card games like Uno or our SunChild affirmation cards so the whole family can pick an Easter affirmation. You can also add some outdoor games, such as a kite or a nature scavenger hunt.
- Book Basket
For book lovers, a book basket can be the perfect gift. Choose a few Easter-themed books like "The Velveteen Rabbit" or "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," or select some books based on your child's interests and age. Add in some bookmarks, a reading light, and a cosy spring-inspired bunny blanket to make reading time even more enjoyable.
Here are some of our favourite items in our SunChild toddler Easter basket this year: the classic and cuddly Jelly Cat bunnies, the sweetest spring dress, the beloved children's book "The Velveteen Rabbit," and our empowering SunChild affirmation cards and "I am Light / I am Joyful" A5 art print to make it extra special and meaningful.
With these ideas, you can create a fun and exciting Easter basket for your child without relying on chocolate. These baskets provide positive affirmations that empower your child and inspire them to explore nature, express their creativity, and engage in family activities. By using your imagination, creativity, and these inspirations, you can create a basket that your child will love and remember for years to come.
