Looking for ideas for creating an Easter Baskets for your baby? Here are some baby friendly ideas that are hands on, healthy and will inspire your baby's imagination. A few ideas are even handmade that you could put together easily with fabric scraps from home.
As you're picking out basket consider picking a basket that your baby or toddler can easily carry around when it has eggs inside of it. Little hands love putting eggs in and out of baskets and it's great for their fine motor and gross motor skills. Easter buckets can be fun too and you can explore with sand and water too once you're done.
What Can I Fill a Baby's Easter Eggs With?
- An Egg Can Be Just an Egg
- Make Egg Shakers
- Finger Puppets
- Bubbles (tiny wedding ones, much easier for little mouths to learn with)
- Bunny Finger Puppet Inspired by our Spring Pinterest Board
- Chick Bean Bags Inspired by our Spring Pinterest Board
- Eggs filled with finger foods like cereal, goldfish, Puffs, Raisens (instead of Sugary Items)
Spring Animal Puppets or Felt Eggs for encouraging Imaginary Play
For younger babies you can Make a Personalized Onsie with fabric Applique or a Homemade Tag Blanket
