Nothing says Happy Easter like a PEEPS® Easter basket! Thanks to PEEPS® for sending Easter basket candy our way and giving me some Easter basket ideas! I’m excited to share the Easter fun with my kids!
Looking for Easter basket ideas?
Easter basket ideas are always beyond hollow chocolate and plastic eggs. I love making sure that marshmallow PEEPS® are an Easter staple. When I was a child, PEEPS® were pretty much yellow or pink – that was it for PEEPS® colors. Sometimes we had Easter bunny PEEPS® but usually it was the Easter chicken PEEPS®that filled my Easter basket.
Wondering how to make amazing Easter baskets? Don’t be tempted to buy premade Easter baskets from the store. It’s much more fun to make a DIY Easter Basket. After you’ve filled your Easter basket, make some of these bunny crafts and make our Easter Chex Mix recipe.
Easter basket gifts to put in your basket.
You can have a lot of fun coming up with things to put in an Easter basket. The trick is to be creative without overdoing it. My kids have caught on that they can ask for toys from the Easter bunny (um what?) but we’ve told him the Easter Bunny is not like Santa Claus at the North Pole. He doesn’t have elves working for him around the clock. Still, there are lots of fun things you can give your family as Easter basket gifts.
