What do you put in a 3 year old boy Easter basket?
Three old boys are typically always on the go and like to play with things that go! Any of these things would be a great addition to a 3-year-old Easter basket:
- Toy boats – my boys love using these in the bath, at the pool, and at the creek by our house!
- Angel Dear Blankie – my son is obsessed with these “bedtime buddies” and for good reason. They’re soft, snuggly, and a great bedtime companion! Any soft stuffed animal would be perfect!
- Don’t Push the Button – my boys have both loved the original version of this book and this Easter one is perfect to add to an Easter basket!
- Building toys – get them a small set of Magnatiles, these building blocks, or even Duplos. Boys love to build and destryo, so they can keep kiddos happy for hours!
- Imaginext action figures – if they like superheroes (like most 3 year old boys do), Imaginext characters are a must. My preschooler plays with his ALL the time both at home, at school, and at restaurants!

What can I put in my 18 month old Easter basket?
If you’re looking for the youngest of toddlers, you’ll want to go with things to play with (not candy and treats). I recommend things like stuffed animals, bath toys, balls, and learning toys like these stacking cups. You can put in things like new clothes as well but know those are mostly going to be for you – not them!
