Baby’s first Easter is a pretty exciting event. It’s their first time meeting the Easter Bunny, of course! Unfortunately, it can be pretty hard to choose items that don’t run a risk of hurting them. Smaller toys and candy aren’t a good option so it isn’t too hard to find yourself suddenly stuck on what to fill their Easter basket with. These 15 Easter Basket ideas for babies are a great place to start. Take a look and then use them to build your own little one’s basket.
For baskets that you’re making be sure that you don’t use Easter grass in them. Little fingers put anything and everything in their mouths and the “grass” could easily get caught in their throat and cause a choking hazard. You also may want to steer clear of an actual basket and instead use a small tote or cloth bag. Even plastic baskets can split and easily cut your little one.
