Who says that only kids get an Easter basket? Surprise the kids and adults in your life with these adorable and cool products. From games, toys and personal items you’ll be sure to please everyone on your list!
My 4-year-old and my 10-year-old both love puppets and this was yet another character perfect to add to their collection and celebrate Easter. The puppet is high-quality and well made. While it is intended for younger children, it's actually fun for children of all ages and perfect for imaginative play. However, due to how it is constructed (no loose parts, beaded eyes, etc), it is safe for infants to play with as well. It fits perfectly over my childrens fingers and, of course, it's unbelievable soft and cute!
from Educational Insights is the perfect addition to an Easter basket or to use instead of that messy artificial grass. Kids are free to express their creativity, with no mess to clean up afterward! Just squish up the Playfoam, shape it however you like, then squash it back down and start all over again! No-stick Playfoam is perfect for sculpting squishy, squashy creations anywhere and anytime! And Playfoam never dries out, so the creativity never ends! Encourages creativity and self-expression, provides tactile and sensory stimulation, and develops fine motor skills too!
Now this one was a hit with both my 4-year-old and 10-year-old. The playfoam is fun, it's squishy, and allows for a lot of creative play. You can build/mold your creation. What's fun is that this never dries out, unlike other similar products, so your child can continue to play with the foam over long periods of time. I love how it's not messy and does not stain the clothing. Just don't let it hit the carpet because it will pick up dirt particles! I remember growing up I loved playing with foam and slime and things of that nature and it seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with my children enjoying the same thing!
With the Tree House Engineering & Design kit
, build the tree house of your dreams with this one-of-a-kind building set from Learning Resources. Use the included activity cards to complete engineering challenges. Build railings, platforms, trees, and then use your problem-solving skills to re-engineer your design. Kids will love building their tree house—parents will love that they’re actually building critical thinking and STEM skills. Includes 52-Piece set activity cards. Platform measures 5.5” x 4.5”
While this toy is suggested for ages 5 years and up, my 10-year-old daughter has a lot of fun building and helping her 4-year-old brother build as well! They literally sat at the table for hours playing with this! This is great for her critical thinking skills and his hand-eye coordination skills. The pieces are well made and because they're plastic, they're easy to wipe down and clean between uses or in the event it gets dirty. It even comes with cards to help you on your building journey. The pieces easily snap together, but aren't difficult to take apart, yet they stay in place. The kids find it fun and don't even realize they're stimulating their brain while playing!
Give the gift of hydration and snacking with Precidio’s Drink in the Box
and Snack in the Box
! Each sold separately and perfect for any Easter basket! Drink in the Box is the world's only reusable drink box. It is patented, won't squirt or leak, and helps to hydrate your kids without all the sugar and risk of mold, or impact to the environment of a disposable juice boxes. Snack in the Box is the coolest snack container, featuring two separate chambers that each hold 6 ounces of your favorite dry snack. Using USA-made Tritan, the body lets you fill with two different types of snacks, and the Tritan pop-up lids let you easily pour out the snack from each chamber individually. BPA/BPS and Phthalate Free.
This reusable juice box is super cute and stylish, but most importantly, my 4-year-old son, Jace, loves it! The lid actually stays on and there's no leaking, so I can fill this up, toss it in my purse or bag for the car, and go without worrying about spills. The straw is also made of a super thick plastic, so it's holding up despite my son chewing on it, and the straw design means it doesn't fall out, even when he swings the entire box around by the straw! Overall, it's less expensive and it's environmentally friendly (since you don't have all the waste of the empty juice pouches).
The Yookidoo Shake Me Rattle
is a battery-operated motion activated rattle with sounds, music, and multiple textures. Features an easy grip handle designed especially for small hands and perfect for any Easter basket! Characters:
Rooster, Donkey, and Dog
I got the rooster rattle and this thing is super adorable! I have a friend who is about to give birth soon and this is the perfect gift for or little one. This rattle is safe starting at birth. There are no loose threads, beaded eyes, etc. It's very well made, has a small grip handle and is absolutely adorable! I love how it has sounds and music. When my children were infants, anything with sound was a winner for both of them. Plus, the multiple textures are very stimulating for infants. From my experience, rattles like this definitely keep your baby entertained for hours! It's small enough to keep in the diaper bag or your purse while running errands as well. There's even a little plastic hook so you can easily attach it to the top of a carrier as well! Ultimately, the toy is adorable, functional, and babies love things like this!
