Progressive Easter Bunny Game & Easter Basket Ideas

Greetings from the Bless’er Homeschool! We’re surviving over here and that’s what matters. 😉

I hope all of you are in good health and in good spirits amidst everything happening right now. (If you are one of those working on the “front lines”, you can open up yesterday’s email from me for a little Starbuck’s treat as my way of saying thank you for all you do.)

While the rest of us are hunkered down at home though, I had kind of an awesome idea to start this week with my girls.

I’d already bought all of the goodies for their Easter baskets two weeks ago, and since we have so much time on our hands (and plenty of pent-up energy), I came up with a plan: Early Easter baskets.

Easter Basket Ideas with Fillers for All Ages Babies - Teens

Then, when I mentioned it on Instagram yesterday, one of you even said, “Why don’t you just give the kids 1 item from the Easter basket per day to stretch out the fun since we don’t know how many days we’ll have to be home?”

Brilliant! So we’re starting a Progressive Easter Bunny today.

The “Easter Bunny” left a note to our girls along with one empty Easter basket each for them. When they wake up each morning, they will have to hunt through the house to find their basket with 1 surprise item inside of it for them. Some are big-ish but some can be as small as $1. (Think a packet of seeds to plant a flower, a small pot of Play-Doh, ingredients to bake cookies together, etc.)

We’ll end it on Palm Sunday (or Easter Sunday depending on how many surprises I can scrounge up) with the final prize being a devotion where we sit and read the story of Jesus together.

Isn’t that so fun?! At this point, any happy surprise is a win.

I rounded up a bunch of my favorite Easter basket filler ideas for each age group (babies – teens), if you have any antsy kiddos missing school. Lots of them are educational / STEM type toys to keep kids challenged for a long time while still having fun.

And they’re all from Amazon Prime so that they can be shipped to your doorstep.

Hope it helps!

  1. I enjoy your content but it is very hard to get to — your sign up pop up takes up a lot of the page and it stays large for quite a while before it can be closed out. I’m already a subscriber so the pop up is useless for me and instead becomes a frustration. There has been more than one time that I’ve just given up and not read the blog at all. Maybe I’m the only one with this problem, but thought you would want to know.
