Need some Easter basket fillers for the kids this year? Check out these kids Easter basket gift ideas that are fun and educational, too.
As a mom, I’ve struggled for a healthy balance between learning activities I choose for my kids and the electronic games and videos they choose for themselves. On my quest for toys and games they’d enjoy, I discovered a few winners that have pleased the both us–games that were fun and entertaining while prompting my kids to think.
Each Easter, I try to find at least one Easter Basket filler using the following criteria:
1. small enough to fit in a typical Easter basket
2. inexpensive (less than $10)
3. encourages creativity, eye/hand coordination, exploration, or strategic thinking
4. doesn’t require batteries (my kids have plenty of these gadgets already)
