5 Last-Minute DIY Eco Easter Baskets for Green Kids

 

Can you believe that Easter is this weekend? One of my favorite parts of Easter is putting together a fun spring basket of goodies for Eben every year. This year, his basket will be full of natural and organic candies, natural dyed eggs, a reusable water bottle, and a couple of great books.

Whether you are creating Easter baskets for your children or someone else that you love, here are 5 other baskets that I am smitten with and that can be put together last minute too!

#1: Just for Fun!
If you have younger children, they will delight in receiving a basket full of fun toys – especially wooden toys. I love these curated items from You are my Fave – the perfect combination of fun toys with just a smidgen of sweetness!

#2: Nature Lover 
I love this Greenvine Basket from Pottery Barn – I think it would be a great basket that you could use year after year, changing the theme each time. It would be fun to pack with new books or card games for your child.

#3: Chef’s Delight
If you have a child who loves to cook, why not surprise them with a basket full of their own cooking essentials. I would also include the ingredients to bake up a sweet treat together!

#4:Bunny Pillows
Who wouldn’t take a bunny pillow over an Easter basket? Instead of chocolate, I would stuff that little pocket with a new book or two!

#5: Little Farmer
This basket might be my favorite and is the type of basket that I would give Eben almost every year when he was younger. I even gave Eben a pizza garden for his 5th birthday – we planted it together and he loved it!

    I just love these! Love how they keep the theme of Easter/Spring alive but are so NOT a plastic basket with plastic eggs and cellophane grass!

    HI Angie,

    That is exactly the idea I was going for – glad it translated well!
