Next week we’ll usher in March–hopefully like a lamb–and the Peeps and Cadburry eggs have officially hit the Target aisles. You know what that means? It’s time for the annual Easter Basket Stuffer List! I love to start early on these. Assembling my kids’ Easter baskets brings me so much joy, especially when I get a head start and can tuck them away completed without feeling the need to rush to Target the night before. We use Easter Baskets as a great time to stock up on some things that need replenishing–art supplies, bathing suits and flip flops. But with summer adventures and travel not far off, I also use this time to buy art and activity books, card games and little treasures my kids will use and wear throughout the next couple seasons. With that, I give you the 2022 Easter Basket Stuffer List. Happy Shopping!
1 – Stamp Garden Set
Your kids have to wait no longer for spring with this floral stamp kit–everything they need to create their own floral prints prints and patters. Combine with #2 to make a set of spring stationery.
2 – Blank Postcards
This one’s always fun to have around with kids, especially artsy ones. They’re the perfect size for small works of art–painting, stamping, drawing, etc. and fun to send out to family and friends.
3 – Bunny Plush
What’s an Easter without a bunny plush in the basket. This one is the cutest–looks like a real baby bunny.
4 – Andy Warhol Tin Can of Crayons
Crayon storage was never so cool. The perfect size tin to tote crayons for road trips, or keep them displayed in a bedroom or playroom.
5 – 365 Days of Art in Nature
The 265 Days of Art books are the best! Lainey got the Creativity one for Christmas and loved it. This nature one is perfect for upcoming days of outside adventures.
6 – Glass Water Bottle with Silicone Sleeve
Each of my kids have their own color of these water bottles they use at home (instead of pulling a new cup every time they want a drink so there’s 29 cups on the counter at night). They come in so many different colors and create a fun rainbow display on open shelving (The Home Edit uses them too!).
7 – Food Lovers Coloring Book
I’m always on the lookout for interesting creative books we’ll actually want to color in. This one has so many cute drawings that are actually fun to color–great for road trips and rainy days.
8 – Slamwich Card Game
We’re big fans of good card games that slip in a purse or backpack for trips, restaurant waits and more, and we use stocking stuffer time and Easter basket fill-ups to replenish our collection. This one’s a fun one for all ages.
9 – Stretchy Dough Balls (2-pck)
Fidgets are still a hit around here, never failing to thrill.
10 – Pop-it Tetris
Speaking of fidgets, I thought I had seen every kind of pop-it they offer, but this! I had to get this one. We love doing Tetris puzzle races to see who can complete theirs first.
11 – Bunny Ponytail Holders (12-pck)
The cutest spring accessory, and there’s enough in this pack to share with siblings and friends.
12 – Barrel of Monkeys
Another fun game to throw in a bag for restaurant waits, this one’s timeless and a great challenge for all ages.
13 – How to Draw Animals
Dash is very into drawing tutorials lately, so this one’s for him–simple and straightforward.
14 – Quicktionary Card Game
I know, I know–enough with the card games, but we can’t quit. We’re always on the lookout for a new one. I was so excited to find this fun word challenge game from Chronicle, one of my favorite publishers. This one’s for sure coming with us to Michigan this summer.
15 – Watermelon Butter Slime
Exactly when does the slime phase wear off? Because it’s still going strong here. Apparently in the world of slime, butter slime is the luxury version.
16 – Magnetic Tangram Puzzle
A fun little brain challenge for Nella’s basket–and it’s magnetic so perfect for travel (can you tell we have our summer road trip on the brain already?).
17 – Braid Headband
Have a preteen/teen who loves playing around with different hair styles (ahem–Lainey)? These headband breads look super real and come in so many different hair colors. When my hair was longer, I wore mine all the time–my long hair tucked in the back with bobby pins, so it looked like a cute updo.
18 – Jellybean Snake-in-a-Can
For the pranksters. These are never not fun.
19 – Pipe Cleaner Pets Book
Someone messaged me this book, suggesting it for Lainey. Ordered immediately for her basket–she’s going to love it! (the little Friday on the front!)
20 – Cupcake Floss
Maybe they’ll actually floss now.
21 – You Me We Journals
I love this journal so much–a great way to connect with your child and create a forever keepsake. These two identical journals are meant for parent and child to both fill in fill-in to learn more about each other and collaborate on fun.
22 – Bungee Bacon
Fidget bacon you can stretch? My kids dig weird stuff like this–maybe yours do too.
23 – Bunny Wish Bracelets
I love gifts that come in 3-packs and 4-packs for multiple kids. These sweet little wish bracelets have the cutest little bunny charm, perfect for Easter gifting.
24 – Plush Bunny in a Sleeping Bag
They had me with the little old-fashioned bunny, but then they had to blast more cute with the tiny little sleeping bag it tucks into and the teeny tiny clothes.
25 – Magic Playing Cards
Kids can perform ten different magic tricks with this trick deck–has Dash’s name all over it.
26 – Bunny Airpod Case
Lainey’s always thrilled to switch out her Airpod case to something new and cute, so it always makes a great gift for her. This little bunny is perfect for Spring.
27 – We Rate Dogs Game
I smiled so big when I found this game. It’s just the sort of fun my kids will love. You rate dogs in show events and try and knock your opponents’ dogs down in the ranks. And–it’s on sale!
28 – Kids Thermos
Nella and Dash are both due for new lunch Thermoses. I figured the Easter basket is the perfect excuse for new ones, especially if they’re accompanied with fun water bottle stickers that they can use to customize and decorate theirs. Enter #29.
30 – Scholastic USA Game Tin
Yes, there are a lot of card games on this list, but they bring us so much joy. With upcoming travel on the horizon, they’re so great for trips. At least one’s educational–a fun way to learn state geography and capitals.
31 – Kawaii Writing Stationery
Lainey loves having her own pretty stationery to send notes on or include in her Poshmark packages. These are delicate and spring-themed and priced just right. These would have been nice for the apology letters Nella wrote to her teachers last week too. :o)
