Affordable Easter Basket Ideas for Toddlers

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays, not only is it a great time for families to get together but it always feels like spring is finally here. I love putting together Easter basket for my children, but if your not careful the cost can get out of hand. My children are still pretty little (2 and 4) so I try and come up with ideas that are not candy based. Don’t get me wrong there’s going to be a little bit of chocolate but it’s nice to try and stay away from the sweets as much as possible. I’ve put together my favorite ideas for Easter baskets all available at your local Dollar Tree.

    I don’t have any children, but I like shopping at Dollar Tree sometimes, because I can get some things for a good price, like notepads and stickers, things I like to collect, even as an adult. These baskets and activities you showed, I bet, are a great present idea for parents or grandparents to buy their little ones. 🙂 And I love that they are affordable too!
