Fun Easter Basket Alternatives

Easter is hopping our way and will be here before we know it! Over the years, the Easter Bunny has brought the kids a variety of different Easter baskets.  Some years we use traditional baskets, other years it’s plastic buckets, and then other years we go for something totally off the grid!  There are many easy fun ways to break from the old wicker basket tradition.

A great idea for a “basket” is to use something practical – some sort of every day object that the Easter Bunny might be gifting to the kids anyway.  Turn that object into a “basket.”

I have rounded up a bunch of these Easter Basket Alternatives below!  You can make these as simple or as involved as you’d like.  Load them up or just add a couple accents.  Be creative and have fun with it!
