How to create the perfect kids Easter basket + $100 Kmart Giveaway #LifeisRidiculouslyAwesome @Kmart

This post is in partership with All opinions are my own.

Easter is just around the corner. Time is going by so fast this year. I can’t believe it’s already Easter when it seems like New Years Eve was just yesterday. I’ve got some ideas you’re going to love. Things that maybe you just didn’t think about to include in your kids Easter baskets. So check out how to create the perfect Easter baskets for kids.

How do you create the Perfect Easter Baskets for Kids?

I always try to include a mix of candy, crafts, puzzles and books. To me the perfect Easter basket has something to learn, something to read and something to eat. I’ve even included water bottles in their baskets so that they can take their water to and from school. It’s a good thing for everyone. Let’s look at some great basket ideas for your kids! 

what goes in a girls easter basket

So in a girl’s Easter basket I would include things like the Lindt Gold Bunny or 6 pack of candy  which is on sale at Kmart. But hurry because it does expire on 4/8. In addition I would add things like hair ties, play dough, glitter or gel pens, search a word books and a reading book that is in her age range. This way it’s not all candy. They get to use their minds and their imaginations too! 

what to put in a boy's easter basket

 Easter Baskets should be a mix imagination, fun candy and inspiration.

What I like to do for the boys is put in Packaged Easter Chocolates which are on sale for $1.50 from 4/9 through 4/15. Then I’ll add a nice bottle of bubbles, a model car, a book on mazes and then a book in his age range that they’d love to read. Those hot wheels cars are fun to add or even the Thomas the Trains for the little ones. If they like to draw then markers and a sketch pad are in order as well. You can do so many fun things with kids and their Easter basket items. 

 Easter baskets for the married child

If you’re making an Easter basket for an older child (like a married child) I have a different list for you! In this Easter basket I’d include a gift card to Kmart for them to purchase food in their grocery area. They have a nice large variety there. Did you know that you can earn 25% In Points with $10+ of Smart Sense Food & Drug Products at Kmart? That’s a fabulous deal. It doesn’t expire until 5/1 either! So take advantage of this deal. 

There’s so many great ways to save at Kmart. Were you aware you can get Shop Your Way reward points back for purchasing Smart Sense items? Also their bluelight specials are back! If you missed the deal while you were in the store, don’t worry. You can find Bluelight Specials online and get notified when the next one happens with the Kmart app, too! Very nice Kmart! If you’re having Easter dinner at your house make sure you check out their Smart Sense line. They have napkins, cups, cookies, water, toilet paper and so much more. You can get most of what you need for grocery items and paper goods here too. What items do you like to include in kids Easter baskets? 

Make sure to check out my other easter ideas! I’ve got Cadbury egg cupcakes, free printable games for kids, diy stamped shirt, bunny butt cookies, easter basket cupcakes and so much more!
