Last year, during Easter, we were actually out camping in our new RV. Luckily, the Easter Bunny can find you anywhere, and if your kids are outdoorsy like mine, the chocolate alternatives to fill their baskets up with is overwhelming.
23 Items for Easter Baskets for Outdoor Kids
- Flashlights or head lamps
- Glow sticks, necklaces or bracelets
- Summer bucket hat
- Buckets, pails, measuring cups for sand play
- Magnifying glass
- Bug or butterfly net
- Bug hotel
- Gardening tools
- Watering can
- Rashguard shirt
- Freeze dried fruit
- Walking worms (aka gummy worm) stash for the season
- Trail mix
- Water bottle
- Snorkel and mask
- giant Marshmallows
- Marshmallow or hot dog roasting sticks
- Small camping chair
Lastly, consider doing an outdoor easter egg hunt! We did one last year at our campground and it was a big hit. This year, we are organizing one in a local park with friends from our outdoor family crew. (Cute bunny glasses are always optional, but who can resist?)

I especially love the headlamp idea! My kiddos would flip of those!
They have been a popular item at my house. Gulp – only one kid has one so Mommy is constantly sharing hers. I think that one might hop into the little one’s basket!

Those are such fun ideas! We’ve never done Easter baskets, but I know my kids love all those things!!
Thanks! We think so too – what are you celebrating instead of Easter?

Thanks, Jodi! Hope it helps.
