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
Truthfully don’t feel like you have to fill them. Then will enjoy just playing with the eggs. My older daughter first learned to throw with plastic eggs, they were light and easy to hold and she loved playing the egg game with them. At the time she was 7 months old and loved just sitting and throwing them. Now my youngest daughter is 15 months and she loves trying to open them and discover things, every age is different. If you are concerned with them coming open, just tape them closed.
- Make Egg Shakers
You could always fill them with something too and seal them closed to make music. Consider items like rice, beans or beads. Just make sure that they are sealed closed to any choking hazards. Electrical tape seems to do that job the best.
