Oh the feeling of Easter morning where the kiddos eat all the chocolate bunnies in the world and squeal throughout the Easter egg hunt. Some parents like to put together some fun Easter basket stuffers – often with Easter treats or candy (like jelly beans) or even some super fun little toys. So, follow along for the best easter basket ideas for boys so you can take the Easter activities up a notch!
What do you put in a boys Easter basket?
It really depends how much time (and money) you want to devote to his Easter basket. With my kids, I typically put a few different trinkets in there. I’ll always include a chocolate Easter bunny (it’s tradition), a few other candy goodies, and then a toy or two. I try to put in one educational activity and then more of a “fun” mindless thing.
For example, sometimes I’ll include a fun card game that can be played with the whole family along with a fidget toy. Or, one year i did Mad Libs and then some Star Wars legos that he absolutely loved.
It really just depends on your kids’ interests!

It’s up to you, but I typically give the Easter baskets out right before the Scavenger hunt. Which brings up my next point – make sure you’re buying non-toxic plastic eggs – especially if you have a little one and it’s their first Easter!
And don’t forget – you can always go DIY and make your own Easter basket too!
