22 Easter Baskets For Kids, From 'Star Wars' To Traditional
You can keep this tradition classic or dress it up in their favorite character.
For kids, Easter can bring a vibe similar to Christmas. That’s if you’re one of the parents who like to put together an Easter basket filled with trinkets, snacks, and other goodies you know they’ll love. But colored eggs and chocolate bunnies can seem redundant. If you’re feeling the itch to be a bit creative this year, there’s a whole slew of Easter baskets you can choose from. While some of them are classic, many of them are outside of the box but right up your child’s lane.
Easter baskets are a tradition with an interesting origin story. The giving of baskets was adopted from a pagan ritual connected to the Germanic fertility goddess, Eostre, who Greeks believed blessed the harvest. They brought baskets of seedlings to her with hopes of having a fruitful harvest. Now, it’s a gesture symbolizing the giving of new life (enter the eggs) and other goodies associated with the holiday.
Like most things, the Easter basket has evolved over the years, moving away from the simplicity of pastel eggs in a wicker frame to elaborate creations that can feature anything from your child’s favorite cartoon character to the Star Wars saga. And a perk is that they get to reuse this basket when it’s time for the Easter egg hunt year after year.
So whether you decide to go with a basket that’s classic and quaint, or elaborate and showy, this list we’ve compiled has some of the top Easter basket options.
