Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re looking for Easter basket ideas for toddlers but you want to skip the plastic Easter eggs for a more sustainable option, we’ve got some great alternatives. Here are some options you can consider instead:

Paper eggs
Wooden eggs
Recycled plastic eggs
Chocolate Eggs

It is believed that in the Catholic tradition, to celebrate the end of Lent, parishioners would bring baskets of baked goods to church to be blessed by a priest. Through the years, the basket tradition has been reimagined and evolved into the Easter traditions we know today.

There is no right or wrong amount to spend on your children’s Easter baskets. It’s all about what is doable for you and your family. If your budget is tight, there are lots of low-cost ways to make the day fun for your little ones. From fun clues to entertaining games focus on the experiences you’ll share rather than the value of the gifts you’ll give.

Here are a few of our favorite tips for planning a great Easter egg hunt for a toddler:

Get your supplies ready ahead of time.
Plan to have about 10 treats or prizes for each child to find.
Keep baskets or bags on hand so the kids can collect their eggs as they go about their hunt.
Hide the treats well enough that the hunt will keep the little ones busy for a while, but don’t make it so difficult that the kids get frustrated.
Supervise the hunt and help out the kids that need a little more guidance so that everyone has a chance to find some treats.
