If your child or grandchild is artistic, try adding in some coloring books with markers, crayons, or paint. For the unicorn-lover in your life, get the Unicorns Love Easter: Creative Unicorn Colouring Book for Children. If they’re more into dinosaurs, there is a dinosaur version as well! You can also grab some really nice coloring books and markers or crayons at your local dollar store.


3. Puzzles

Another fun, yet educational item to add to any great Easter basket! Find a puzzle that has your child’s favorite characters on it, or you can even purchase puzzles online with your own photos. Your child would love to build a puzzle with his or her face on it. Perhaps they love 3D puzzles instead. Pick up this 3D puzzle of an adorable rabbit, perfect for Easter.

4. Gift Cards

If you have an older child or teen, they will certainly love a gift card for their favorite store or restaurant! It doesn’t have to be much. They will love being able to pick out what they want with their own gift card, even if it is only for $5.

5. Bath Accessories
