A good Easter basket can make or break your kid's mood on Easter morning. (Sorry, but it's the truth!). While we would never shame you for going the premade Easter basket route or opting for a simple Easter basket, we know how much you've been wanting to unleash your inner Pinterest-parent skills with a DIY Easter basket.
We’ve created eight Easter basket themes that don’t require you to spend a ton on materials, but they’ll totally wow your kiddo and restore their belief in the magical Easter bunny. Here you’ll find suggestions for stuffers, the basket itself, as well as how you can put it all together on your own. Since Easter falls right after two big gifting holidays, we made sure to keep budgets in mind with our suggestions. Take a look at our DIY Easter basket ideas for kids, so you can get it right and put one together that they’re sure to love.
1. STEM Easter Basket
Does your kid love all things science and tech? Why not make them a STEM-themed basket? Fill a fun, reusable tote with things like binoculars, robots, building blocks, and LEGO. Everything will get so much use, and they're guaranteed to love it.
2. Art Easter Basket
Looking for an Easter basket idea that will unleash your child's creative potential? An art-themed basket is the way to go. Get them a cute tote to haul their supplies that will serve as the basket, and fill it with all sorts of artsy goodies.
3. Unicorn Easter Basket
