Fun & Unique Easter Basket Ideas for Active Kids
If you're filling Easter baskets for extra hoppy bunnies this year ...
If you're filling Easter baskets for active kids this year (or trying to encourage your children to get moving), we have some of the very best non-candy items for this year's baskets! At Beyond the Blackboard, we like to encourage grown-ups to put a small amount of candy in baskets, and let learning-through-play toys, games, and books, fill the baskets.
Easter baskets also provide an opportunity to restock things like art supplies, reading material, or active toys (we're sharing some of our favorites below)! Need more ideas? Tell us a little bit about your special someones, and let us handle the decision-making. Order your custom Easter basket fillers here (for all ages)!
