7 Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers – #FridayFrivolity

It’s almost Easter, everyone! Here at Friday Frivolity we’re celebrating early for this upcoming weekend. If you haven’t thought about what to put into your toddler’s Easter basket this year I’m going to share what my 17 month old got in hers.

What’s in my Easter basket?


Everything you see here I picked up at Walmart. Target has adorable baskets too but I found this Mickey Mouse bucket for about $5 at Walmart and I had to get it. The color is like a seafoam green and it’s very big which made fitting all her goodies tons easier.


These were fifty cents a piece and went over great with my toddler. There are so many ways to play with play dough.


The Elena doll was a great find. My little loves the show and her new doll. Walmart had a ton of princess dolls like Mulan, Pocahontas and Belle on sale for $8.88.

Activity Sets

Next to the Elena doll is a Minnie Mouse activity set that comes with crayons, stickers and a 25ft roll of pictures to color.


My daughter loves stickers! I found cute Easter themed stickers for less than a dollar and picked up two reusable sticker pads as well. They didn’t have many options but I think Finding Dory and Trolls were solid choices.

Coloring Books

I only picked up one Easter themed coloring book because my little has so many already. The coloring book came with stickers too which was just an added bonus.


We have tons and tons of books at our house. My daughter easily has 100 books already in her library but I had to include at least one new one in her basket. Check out our list of 10 Books My Toddler Loves.


She picked out Over the Hedge because she liked the squirrel in the cover and I grabbed her a two disc Elmo DVD. There’s a lot of spring themed DVDs out at this time of year.

Bonus Ideas

Stuffed animals are also a great option for littles. If my daughter didn’t already have a million crayons I definitely would’ve added those in her basket as well. I try not to give her much chocolate but she loves fruit snacks. In a basket given to her by my grandmother there were fruit snacks and I thought that was a great idea instead of traditional chocolates.

What kinds of goodies are your children getting in their Easter baskets?

    One year when might even was a toddler he got FIVE baskets! Both grandma’s, an aunt a day a neighbor plus the real one the Easter Bunny NY left. There’s very little cake dynamic from EBAY anymore. This year it is swim shoes so.e goldfish crackers and stuff like that.
