Best Easter Gifts for the Creative Child

Explore the perfect Easter gift ideas for kids who love to explore their artistic and creative side! As a mom of two boys, I personally love Easter basket stuffers that are not only fun, but functional! 

Easter present ideas for kids, Personalized Name Crayon Easter Basket Stuffers from crayon shop Art 2 the Extreme

Of course you know that I will always include a personalized name crayon set from Art 2 the Extreme® . If you know an artist that is 1 or 101, a personalized crayon set is a unique gift idea to not only add personalization to their Easter Basket, but a fun way to add some color.


Crayon Stix, Original Rainbow Crayon gift for Easter present idea from crayon shop Art 2 the Extreme. Oversized crayons in multicolors for kids.


These letter crayons from our handmade crayon shop are multicolored crayons that are perfect for little hands and last a long time. We do suggest the crayon letters for ages 3 and up, but if you want an oversized crayon for a child younger than three, I totally suggest the Art 2 the Extreme® Rainbow Crayon Stix® or Mini Easter Bunny Rainbow Crayons.  These shaped crayons are sturdy and won’t roll off a table! 


Paint with Watercolor Book Bookmark gift for kids, text says Easter Basket Gift Ideas, non-candy ideas from Art 2 the Extreme


My Crayon Crew loves to travel and eat out, so I am always looking for ways to entertain kids on an airplane or at a restaurant.  In addition to Art2theExtreme Crayon Stix® in my bag, I always keep a pad of MiDeer Pocket Watercolor Painting Book Kits. My boys love making DIY bookmarks and this cute watercolor painting activity turns into a bookmark-sized piece of art. It comes with a brush and a panel of watercolors on the side, so all you need is a small glass of water and you are good to go (and easy to clean up. These watercolor book kits for toddlers and kids is currently on sale and has an extra coupon on Amazon! 

Easter Chalk Eggs from handmade chalk company TWEE Chalk.  Easter shaped chalk for Easter basket Ideas.

We cannot have enough sidewalk chalk at our house! My boys use up the colorful chalk like there is no tomorrow, so I will be including unique shaped sidewalk chalk from my small business friends at TWEE ! From out of this world planet-shaped chalk to colorful Easter eggs, TWEE is also hand designed (like Art 2 the Extreme!) in Philadelphia, PA and the leading handmade maker of custom and shaped chalk design! 


Easter Gifts for Kids That are Adorable

Slumberkins is my absolute FAVORITE gift to give at every baby shower I attend. My boys always receive at least one Slumberkin friend each holiday to add to their collection. As a former teacher, I love the social and emotional skill component to every creature and story they create. I have known founders, Kelly Oriard and Callie Christiansen, since before their Shark Tank days and have had the unique opportunity to watch their beautiful company grow over the years. I love that their backgrounds in Special Education, Elementary Education, Family Therapy, and being a School Councilor have played such a huge roll in product development for the Slumberkins brand. Did I mention that they have a TV SHOW with the Jim Henson Company on Apple Plus TV?!?! 


Dragon Egg Easter Gift from Slumberkins, Slumberkins Easter Collection, Amazon


Anyways…. I absolutely love their Easter collection of Slumberkins and the special minis that fit into the large dragon eggs! This Easter collection for kids promotes creativity, curiosity, connection and mindfulness, a thoughtful gift for someone looking to go beyond candy for Easter.

Easter Gifts for the Fashionista

Earrings are a must when I am out and about. I love the statement they make and of course I wear rainbows or art supplies. My Easter basket pick for the teen or child that loves to wear earrings is this Rainbow Pom Earring set by Oh So Jo Designs. I love that the colorful rainbow poms look like little Easter eggs or easter candy.

Easter Gifts For Peep Lovers

Sunbasil Soap has been a long-time maker friend of mine from the early days of Etsy. I love their fun shapes and bright colors, but most of all the small is AMAZING! This Pastel Bunny Easter Soap is my go-to for not only easter basket stuffer ideas, but also to keep in my own bathroom around the Easter holiday. 


What new Easter craft activity am I trying with my family this Easter season?

What are some creative Easter present alternatives to fill plastic Easter eggs besides candy?

While candy is a classic choice for filling Easter eggs, there are plenty of alternative options that can make your Easter egg hunt unique, more exciting, and diverse. I personally love filling our plastic eggs with custom tattoos made by artists on Etsy, custom stickers I have created from my own child’s artwork, beads to make bracelets from, and of course rainbow crayons!

Easter prizes for kids, Wooden coins for rewards to hide in plastic eggs, engraved wooden bunny coins from Etsy

I also hand-write rewards on wooden coins for the boys such as, “stay up 10 minutes late, pick a treat from McDonalds, lunch date with mom, etc.” If you want a more formal looking coin, there are a ton of handmade sellers on Etsy that have wooden coins with prizes laser-engraved on them that are ready to shop!
