Since my daughter is far too young for candy, I put together a list of fun things to do over Easter with your toddler and a Toddler Easter Basket. I added toys, books, and even so egg coloring ideas.

Toddler Easter Basket Ideas  

Sesame Street toys help you toddler learn and are an awesome addition to this toddler Easter basket. These Oscar Stacking Cups are a great way to help encourage development of fine motor skills.  The brightly colored cups stacking and nesting each one is how toddlers these skills.

Sesame Street Stacking Cups - easter gifts for toddlers

This easy to grasp newborn toy introduces baby to numbers and colors on each of the cups. When baby builds his mini-mountain, help him balance the wibbly-wobbly and weighted Oscar right on top.

LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Letter Set

Comes in Yellow or Pink

2-4 Years

Get your toddler ready for reading with these interactive alphabet tiles! Sing along to fun learning songs and explore the world of A to Z with colorful letter tiles that talk, sing and teach about the alphabet.

Kids can learn the alphabet by placing individual magnetic letter tiles on the bus window.

Build vocabulary by pressing any letter twice to hear Tad use it in a word and a sentence. Place any letter on the bus and press it once to hear Tad say the letter’s name and sound.

Easter basket alternative

Radio Flyer My 1st 2 in 1 Wagon

Ages 1-4 years

Instead of putting your Easter gifts in basket this year, why not use a wagon. This 2-in-1 Wagon is designed to be pushed or pulled by your little one.

The unique handle can lock into place, creating the perfect helper for beginner walkers.

The 4-wheel stable base allows beginner walkers to safely build confidence and balance. Release the handle and the wagon is ready to be pulled by your child with all their belongings in the XL storage space. This durable wagon can be used inside or outside.

Coloring Egg Kit

Eco-Easter Egg Coloring

This is a simple fun activity for Easter. You can color the eggs and eat them or blow out the egg and save them for posterity. My toddler is pretty good with a paintbrush.

The Happy Egg

The Happy Egg

When a little bird is inside an egg, it cannot walk, it cannot sing, and it cannot fly. All it can do is be sat on. But when the time is just right: Pop! — out it comes.

And then a little bird can do almost anything! With the same insightful simplicity of their classic The Carrot Seed, Ruth Krauss and Crockett Johnson celebrate the promise and confidence of little birds (and young children) everywhere.

Ollie's Easter Eggs

Ollie’s Easter Eggs

PreS-Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie each dye their Easter eggs red, blue, purple, and yellow, respectively. Gossie hides hers in the grass. Gertie hides her in a haystack. BooBoo hides hers in a pot filled with tulips. And Peddie hides his under a green turtle.

A while later, the goslings are surprised when they find their eggs missing and go on a real Easter egg hunt. They see them wrapped in shiny green ribbon as Ollie proudly looks on. Small, creative details appear hidden on each page, such as a snail, a butterfly, a piece of green ribbon, a frog, and a spider.

Ollie sports an adorable rabbit-ear cap. The crisp illustrations, done in pen, ink, and gouache, show the characters in action. For example, each time Ollie hides an egg, he has to use his beak, or webbed feet, while pushing very hard, which emphasizes his small size and weight, in relation to the egg.

Easter Egg Bath Bomb for Toddler Easter Basket

Easter Egg Bath Bombs

If your kiddo is a bath fan, then these bath bombs are a fun late night activity for your toddler. It is so fun to see their faces when the bath bombs start fizzling. I made an easy DIY to make them yourself here.

Now that I have shared what I am putting in my toddler Easter basket let me know what you are putting in your gift basket.

Easter Lego Set for Toddler Easter Basket

Toddler Lego Set

This is super fun to put together for your toddler. They really can’t play with it yet if they are in the habit of putting things in their mouth. My toddler doesn’t do that so she is fine with these Legos. If you think the legos are too small, check out this Mega Bloks Set that comes in festive for Easter in cute pastel colors.

Hide N Squeak Eggs

These eggs are not the ordinary eggs you find at the grocery! Crack open the shells to reveal six special chicks. Learn shapes by sorting each shell into its own carton spot. Six different face/shell combinations included. Press down gently on their heads to hear them cheep! Best of all, no batteries are needed! 

Easter Egg Memory Set

These eggs help with memory and learning about shapes and colors and are perfect for your Toddler Easter Basket. You can also use the eggs to create shapes in play dough like these Egg Play Dough.

  1. I’m excited about the ELMO’S ON THE GO LETTERS. He loves to play with letters when he visits his friends house that has a set.

  2. April the Pinterest entry is not working. It says “Whoops! We couldn’t find that page.” Thought you needed to know.

  3. i love the quality if these toys; they remind me of the sturdy sesame street toys i played with as a kid; lastedthrough 4 kids and still going….!

  4. Definitely the Elmo on the Go letters! I had something similar when I was a child, and i love that the letters have a case to store them in!

  5. I love the ELMO’S ON THE GO LETTERS for my nephew. Not only would this be great to help him learn the alphabet, but he loves placing different shapes and patterns into things.
