17 Toddler Easter Basket Stuffer Ideas (For 2022)

Easter is right around the corner. If you are getting your Easter baskets ready, I am here to help you with 15 Easter basket stuffer ideas for toddlers.

It’s my toddler, Lennox’s second Easter, and I am so excited to see him open his Easter basket.

I wish I would have taken more pictures from his first Easter. I did a lot of DIY Easter basket stuffers and the images I have do not serve them justice.  However, I did an adorable DIY photo shoot of him as a little Easter Bunny. The pictures turned out awesome! You can check out these pictures here.

This year, I didn’t do DIY Easter basket stuffers. However, this year, Lennox is at the age now where he can start doing crafts and activities, so I wanted to focus my time on that.

Below, you can find a list of 15 awesome Easter basket stuffer ideas for your adorable toddler!

1. Art Supplies

Some of my favorite things to stuff into a basket or stocking are art supplies! I compiled a list of the best art and craft supplies for preschoolers that you can check out here!

2. Fun Bouncy Egg Balls

A toddler’s favorite toy, a bouncy ball, in the shape of an egg!

3. Duck Bath Toy

It’s always a good idea to throw out bath toys every couple of months. They get moldy on the inside. Gross. Easter is the perfect time to bring some new bath toys in! How fun these little ducks?

4.  Happy Easter, Little Critter by Mercer Mayer

 Happy Easter, Little Critter by Mercer Mayer has a lot of fun activities for your toddler to do. You can check out some of the fun activities we did with this book here.

5. Squishy Toys

These large Easter eggs are a great alternative for candy. They come with three squishy toys to help ease your toddler’s tantrums!

6. Open-Ended Toys

7. Bubbles

What toddler doesn’t love bubbles? If you know one, please let me know. I think these are just darling and they are the perfect size for your toddler’s hands. Now if only they could figure out how to blow on their own!

8.     The Classic Chocolate Easter Bunny

What is an Easter basket without the Classic Chocolate Easter bunny? And a Reeses Easter Bunny, even better!  Lennox doesn’t get sweets all that often but I will not deprive him on the holidays. Indulge, my tiny human. 

9.     Wind up Plush Chick

Watch your toddler’s face light up with these adorable wind-up Easter animal toys. Our fur babies got a kick out of them as well!

10.     Shape Matching Eggs

These shape matching eggs are the perfect toddler Easter toy. They are great for fine motor, and are a great educational toy for learning shapes and colors.

11. Pez

I honestly didn’t even realize Pez candies were still around. I was ecstatic when I saw it at Walmart. It’s a perfect stuffer and will also help your toddler with his fine-motor skills as he grasps the little candies. I would be extra careful if you have a younger toddler; this could be a choking hazard. I will make sure I monitor Lennox very carefully when he eats his Pez candies.

12.     Slinkys

I’m a 90’s chick and I remember playing with these bad boys all the time. I loved putting them on the top oft the stairs and watching them walk themselves down. This is the perfect Easter basket stuffer that will entertain your toddler for hours.

13.     Bath Poufs

Lennox is a big boy now; I think it’s time to transition from the baby washcloths. I found these adorable Easter bath poufs and just couldn’t resist.

14. Bilingual Interactive toys

15.     Easter Chalk

I am proud to announce that Lennox no longer feels compelled to eat chalk or crayons. Therefore, I couldn’t resist on adding these adorable Easter chalk to his basket. Once your toddler receives his chalk, try out this fun mosaic chalk heart mindfulness activity for kids!

16.     Easter Cars

I don’t know about your toddler, but mine is obsessed with cars. These are the cutest alternative if you want to skip out on the candy this Easter.

17.     Egg Maracas

Get your toddler’s groove on with these adorable wooden egg maracas.

Well that was what Lennox got for Easter. In total, I spent around $50, twenty of which were on the boots. Not bad! It was worth all the fun he’s had and is going to have with all his Easter items.

Comment below letting me know what are some of the items you put in your toddlers Easter basket?

I have been trying to come up with ideas for my 1 year old and all I ended up with was a beach towel and pool items. Which he won't be able to use for a while yet. These are awesome ideas that I'm going to get!
