Easter Basket DIY Gifts & Free Printables
I am always looking for fun, new, cheap & easy Easter basket DIY gifts that don’t involve candy. If you are too, I think you’ll love these ideas & have a lot of fun putting them together! Be prepared that you will have fun with these gifts too & when your kids are playing with them you’ll have some free time! Win, win! I promise I still include candy, however, I never need as much with gifts like these to add into the mix!
Aside from the fact that each of these gifts is nearly free, especially since you will likely have a lot of these ingredients at home already, they will also keep your kids occupied for hours! You will probably even gain 5 minutes peace, and hopefully more! Also if you totally flaked and forgot all about Easter Basket gifts, you may still be able to recover by putting a few of these fun ideas together!
Have fun Easter Bunny!
Easter Basket DIY:
My kid’s favorite item I’ve included in this Easter Basket DIY list is Happy Slime!
Your kids will love this gooey, stretchy, colorful manipulative slime! I suggest making a rainbow of colors or pick your child’s favorite color to make it even more personal. For the Happy Slime recipe, check out my post on how to make it. Be sure to store it in these fun glass jars!
This is the softest most soothing playdough recipe! Your kids will never want to stop playing with it! I have trouble walking away from it myself as it has such a soothing texture to it. Adding the color to it just makes it that much more special. Get the recipe here. Put in small canning jars, for a fun way to store it!
Homemade colorful sand! This sand is so simple you’ll wonder why you didn’t make it sooner and your kids will thank you for it! In am jealous that I didn’t have this as a kid. It is way, way too cool! I love it because it is cheap and so easy to clean up. See my post on how to make Happy Sand. For this sand, I like to make a lot and store it in large mouth canning jars.
Bingo is one way my kids and I often play together. We all enjoy playing and if I only have a moment to sit down with them, this game takes just the right amount of time. I put together a fun free printable Bingo game and found a cool new way to use it, using old CD cases. We like to play BINGO using dry erase markers best because they are less fuss and easy to wipe clean with a rag or dry erase eraser. After you print the Bingo game, cut them out faster and use a paper trimmer.
If you enjoy playing with your kids but need some ideas for how to play with your kids in a way that is fun for you too, be sure to check out my post here for another one of my favorite ways to interact with my kids, that they also enjoy.
I hope you enjoy putting together these fun DIY Easter gifts!
