Growing up, our family always had big Easter baskets. There would be socks, books, toys, games, and lots and lots of candy. The Easter Bunny, of course, would always hide the Easter basket and we would spend time searching for our baskets. One time, my sister’s basket was even hidden in the shower hanging from the faucet head.
Now that Carolynn Rose is almost two, she is really starting to enjoy opening new things and interactive toys that force her just outside of the box. This list will give you some ideas on what to get the toddler in your life for Easter.

3. Melissa & Doug Scissor Skills
Safety scissors are an easy way to start your kiddos out learning to cut without worrying about major injuries. Since we have a nanny that stays with us, we supply all sorts of activities and arts and crafts and this one is perfect!!
4. Jumbo Chalk
Nothing says spring quite like kiddos out on the front side walk with jumbo chalk creating their artwork. Chalk is always a must-have for easter baskets!
5. Reeses Easter Eggs
Our entire family LOVES peanut butter and reeses–and I might be bias but I think that the Reeses Easter eggs have the perfect chocolate to peanut butter ratio! They are a staple in our Easter backets.
6. Jelly Beans (In Easter Eggs)
While all candy is great and some people reach for the Cadbury Eggs, I am a huge fan of ALL jelly beans, and I certainly passed that love on to my daughter. Fill up a couple of plastic Easter Eggs and add them to the basket!
