Best Easter Gifts for Kids 2019

Kids love parties and receiving all types of gifts, so why not have another excuse to treat your children at Easter. This holiday is not as commonly celebrated as Christmas but if you think about it it is Christianity’s most important holiday and it is important to teach children this tradition from a young age. Even if you are not a religious family, Easter is usually associated with amazing activities that leave children very happy. Kids love to decorate eggs and then go on Easter egg hunts.

We all know the most important part of Easter holiday are the gifts! Easter is not just about receiving, but about giving and sharing tradition with your family. There are always ways to get thoughtful Easter gifts for kids to inspire laughter in your families youngest ones. We have summarized the most appropriate and fun gifts you can give children on Easter Sunday.

Types of Easter Gifts

Easter Baskets

A wonderful customizable gift for kids that love lots of presents in one. Easter baskets usually include different kinds of candy, plush toys, arts and crafts items and lots of chocolate Easter eggs and bunnies. Easter basket could be a great gift for a 4 year old girl who loves playing with bright toys and loves receiving gifts. Many toy companies have started doing themed gift baskets with Minnie mouse, Barbie or any other most popular kids show character.

Easter Egg Toys

Most widely recognized Easter symbol is a decorated egg and there are so many kid egg toys. Most Easter toys for kids consist of plastic egg shells that can be broken or split open to find a prize inside. This simple toy concept has been around for so many years and kids love Easter egg toys that are made of chocolate and still contain a small toy once the shell is eaten. If you are looking to get an egg toy with a prize inside, make sure you get larger Easter egg toy for toddlers to eliminate choking hazards and kids 5 years old and above can enjoy smaller toys hidden in Easter eggs.

Fun Easter Activity Toys

Easter is all about play and family fun activities. It is important to have fun activities planned before the whole family shows up on Easter Sunday. You might need to get some fun Easter baskets for the egg hunt, fun water guns to keep they boys happy and some colorful balls for outdoors activities for children. Don’t forget to get lots of egg dyes and children-friendly tools to decorate eggs.

Christian Easter Presents for Kids

In order to celebrate Easter right you definitely need to honor the tradition and where it originated. If you are a religious Christian family, we recommend getting some decorations that represent this faith. It is important to show kids that Easter is not only about receiving lots of presents, looking for decorated eggs or stuffing your face with chocolate. You can slowly teach children about the religious aspect of Easter with fun Christian party favors which will make them ask questions about who this Jesus guy really was.

Age Guide: How to Choose the Right Easter Gift for your Child

If you are hosting Easter this year, then you need to prepare gifts and activities for children of all ages. Here are our straight forward guide for choosing Easter eggs according to children’s ages.

Toddler Girls

Easter offerings for little girls should reflect the theme of the season but also include cute cuddly stuffed animal bunnies, the most delicious treats and colorful toys. With most toddlers, you can get away with colorful interactive toys that require lots of gripping and touching. Toddlers toys are usually gender neutral as in only focuses on improving the childs development. We recommend good quality Easter themed toddler toys which can be colorful eggs that are soft to grip or eggs that make sounds and so on.


Don’t worry about getting a perfect Easter gift for boys and any boy will love sweets and fun Easter themed toys. We love surprise eggs as they can be customized with any toys. There are many surprise egg toys that have little cars, dinosaurs or Pokémons inside so boys would stay engaged in the Easter holiday festivities and be able to collect toys that they love.

3 to 6 Year Old Kids

This is the perfect age when children will start begging for Easter candy and chocolates. Kinder Surprise eggs have children by their string and you are gonna be buying them by the dozen. This is a perfect age to start increasing the difficulty of Easter egg hunt by putting eggs in difficult to find places or making the clues much harder to figure out.

7 to 9 Year Old Kids

It is always going to be a bit of a task finding something for this age group, as they can be a bit tricky to find gifts for. They need something a bit more complicated that what a younger kid would want, but they are not quite ready for the gifts that teens will want. All kids still love chocolate, no matter what age they are, so this might be a good place to start.

12 Years Old and Above

Kids that are older than 13 years old are developed humans and have their very specific likes and dislikes, so getting an nice gift becomes more complicated since it has to be very personalized to them. We recommend you try to find something that is related to their interests or life style. For example, if your teen is a vegan, yuou can get them a great vegan snack bundle. Or, if your teen loves zombie films, you can get them a chocolate zombie bunny.

Kids and adults will absolutely love these fun and creative Easter egg hunt ideas! There are tons of great Easter egg hunts and filling ideas for Easter eggs! Tons of unique ways to set up an Easter egg hunt for kids or an Easter egg hut for adults!

Creative Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

One of my favorite things about Easter is the Easter morning Easter Egg hunt. Every year my parents would make us kids go upstairs while they hid plastic eggs all over the house filled with candy and sometimes even money.

While the Easter egg hunt is definitely not the purpose of Easter, it’s still a fun tradition that I’ll be continuing with my son this year and something I’ll be doing for my husband as well!

Just one of the few annual Easter activities we do every year!!

I thought it would be fun to come up with some creative alternatives to the typical Easter egg hunts to put a little twist on one of my favorite traditions. A number of these would also make fun Easter party games as well!

Easter Egg Hunt Ideas for All Ages

If you want something to do other than an Easter egg hunt, make sure to check out these 12 spring themed party games, perfect for kids or adults! Or these printable Easter games for kids are fun too, my son loved them!

#1 – Skip the Candy Easter Egg Hunt

Have kids fill Easter Eggs with slips of paper that have reasonable rewards (stay up for an extra 15 minutes, lunch date with mom) for them rather than candy/toys. Hide the eggs and the eggs that the kids find are the rewards that they get.

You could also just do this in addition to the typical candy eggs. And if you’re sticking with the no-candy theme but still want to put things in eggs – check out this huge list of Easter egg filler ideas!

Don’t skip the candy altogether, make this Cadbury eggs Easter cookie cake as an Easter dessert for the family instead!

#2 – Easter Egg Eggstravaganza

Fill each of the eggs with a slip of paper with a silly task such as sing “Itsy Bity Spider,” name three fruits that are red, or do a handstand. This is an Easter egg hunt so make them fun.

When the finder finds an egg, they can bring it back to you and do the task. After they’ve done the task, they can either pick out a piece of candy or a toy or give them coins or tickets that they can turn in for something bigger at the end of the hunt. Any of these Easter surprises would make great prizes!

If you want to do something like this for older kids, put different numbers of points on the tasks. So say one egg might have a task that is name ten states and their capitols that is worth 10 points and another egg might have sing I’m a little teapot worth 5 points.

Keep track of points to “buy” something at the end of the hunt.

#3 – Easter Egg Treasure Hunt

Write clues that send your kids around the house searching for the next location where they’ll find a clue (e.g., Run really fast, use your legs, this is where we keep the eggs). Or if you don’t have time to write them, here’s a printable treasure hunt you can use instead!

Hide the clues in eggs and put a number on each of the eggs so they don’t accidentally skip an egg in their searching. Have the clues lead to a bigger prize at the end, one for each kid, or one that everyone can share.

Or skip the egg part of it and just do this Easter scavenger hunt instead!

#4 – Golden Ticket Easter Egg Hunt

Have a Willy Wonka themed Easter Egg hunt by hiding a golden ticket for each of your kids in one egg, so if you have three kids you would have three eggs with golden tickets inside. Tell your kids that they can only find one golden ticket.

If your kids aren’t the “open as I find it” kind of kids, you can also put a golden star or something on the outside of the egg so they know when they find a golden ticket egg.

Once they find a golden ticket, they can immediately (or after the hunt is over) trade it in for a bigger prize.

One word of warning – I highly recommend if you’re going to do this with kids that you put one per person. We went to an Easter hunt where there was one golden egg for the entire group of kids.

I had to deal with a sobbing child who no longer wanted to hunt for Easter eggs because he saw the golden egg first but was beat to it by a girl a few years older. It was an absolute mess. Easter egg hunts are made to be fun, not build character.

Easter Egg Hunt Ideas for Older Kids & Teens

#5 – Easter Egg Relay Race

Split your kids into teams. When you say go, have the first kid from each team go search for an egg. Once they’ve found an egg, they come back and tag the next teammate who has to go find an egg.

Repeat until one team has found a specified number of eggs (e.g., 20) as a team.

You can also do this with younger kids, just make sure they understand that they can only find one egg and come back!

#6 – Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt

Put together a list of eggs that the kids have to find such as a striped egg, an egg with green Jelly beans, an egg with a quarter inside, etc.

Here’s a great printable version you can use to help get you started!

Once the kids have found each item on their list, they can trade it in for a big gift (e.g., movie, toy, gift card, $10).

This is a great way to still let kids search for a lot of eggs without a candy overload.

#7 – Choose Your Own Easter Egg Adventure Hunt

Similar to the Easter Egg Treasure Hunt mentioned above, write clues that send your kids around the house searching for the next clue. The only difference is that for this treasure hunt, you are going to put two eggs with two different clues in each location.

Kids can open both eggs but will have to choose which one to follow. Or if you have two kids, they could choose two different pathways completely.

So for example, one egg might lead them to the microwave while the other might lead them to the bathtub.

This is a little more complicated to put together but so fun for kids to have a choice. It’s kind of like one of those choose your own adventure books from back in the day! You can use these Easter scavenger hunt clues to get you started.

#8 – Reverse the Roles Easter Egg Hunt

Reverse the roles this year and have the kids fill the Easter eggs with things that they want written on slips of paper (like stay up for an extra hour, skip chores for a day, etc.).

Once all of the eggs are filled, have the kids hide the eggs and have parents try to find them. Any eggs that are not found in a certain time limit are the ones that kids get to keep.

#9 – Scrambled Easter Egg Hunt

Pick out some bigger prizes (like any of these) and print out the names of those prizes on a sheet of paper (e.g., Movie Night) with each prize printed in a different color egg.

Cut out each of the letters from the prizes and put one letter in each egg that you hide.

Make a poster with matching colored blank spaces for each letter in each prize (kind of like I did in this advice graduation game) so that kids know how many letters are in each prize.

Have kids search for the eggs until they’ve found all of the letters for a particular color and then have them unscramble the letters to win the prize.

You can either let them find all of the words or just win the first 2-3.

You could also do this with puzzle pieces and have them find the pieces to put together the puzzle instead of unscrambling letters. And have the prize on the back, like I did for this DIY Christmas gift.

#10 – Perfect Patterns Egg Hunt

Before the race, buy eggs in particular patterns or designs and colors (e.g., striped, pink polka dotted, glittery) then hide the eggs and come up with a pattern to use for the game.

So for instance, you might say you have to find eggs in the order of the colors in a rainbow (red, orange, yellow, blue, green, violet). Or they have to find striped, solid, striped, solid, etc.

Every time they find an egg, they have to bring the egg back then go search again for the next egg in the pattern.

Once they’ve found all of the eggs in the correct pattern, they are rewarded with a bigger prize.

Easter Egg Hunt Ideas for Adults

Easter egg hunts don’t have to be just for the kids! Try one of these awesome Easter egg hunt ideas for adults for a little more fun for the adults this year! This could even be something you do after the kids are in bed or while they’re enjoying the candy from their hunt!

Do the golden ticket Easter egg hunt I mentioned above and only the person who finds the golden ticket wins a bigger prize.

Speaking of gold, this confetti egg game would be hilarious! Fill some eggs with confetti and one with gold sequins. Find egg and smash them on each other – the one who finds the gold one wins. Get the full instructions here.

Fill Easter eggs with money, lotto tickets, or other things adults would want to find! Obviously this might be a bit expensive, so only hide a few per person!

Do a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt. This could work for kids or adults!

Do a girls only Easter egg hunt and fill the eggs with mini nail polishes, gourmet chocolates, and one big gift like a gift certificate to a spa!

Try this Easter egg hunt for your spouse activity to lead them to an Easter basket full of their favorite things!

Cool Easter Basket Ideas for Tween Boys

While your tweens might not still believe in the Easter bunny, you still might want to treat them to a few things for Easter, especially if they have siblings that still believe. We have found lots of great non-candy options to fill those baskets. We have a variety of items, in all price ranges to fit a variety of tween interests. You won’t want to miss our cool Easter basket ideas for tween boys.

To save this cool list of Easter basket ideas for later, press the “pin-it” button at the top of the page.

1. Kontrol Freek Xbox One Thumb Grips

KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks are designed to provide an advantage in gameplay by increasing the controller’s range of motion and maximizing agility, accuracy and grip. If your tween has an Xbox One, they will love these cool additions to their controllers. These grips snap easily on and off your controller’s original thumbsticks, creating a new stick experience that will take your gaming to the next level! They are made of a non-slip material and design keeps your thumbs sweat-free. Choose from a variety of designs and shapes and colors.

2. Cover Your Assets Game

There is a reason that Cover Your Assets is so highly-reviewed and this small game will be a big hit with your tween. This game is fast-paced, competitive, and a more than a little addictive. Will it teach you to be wise with your financial decisions in life, or how to be a savvy investor? Absolutely not. Will it cause bouts of laughter, good-humored competition, and fun-filled gatherings? We certainly hope so.

It’s quite difficult to explain why it’s such a riot to play, but let me try. It’s like a combination of a white elephant gift exchange, an estate sale, and Robin Hood (because you steal from the rich and give it to yourself… wait, that’s not like Robin Hood at all… oh well, hopefully you get the point). Your fortune can be made, or lost, in just a few turns. You’re never out of the game until the last card is played.

3. Flipside Game

Your tweens will love this all-new and fun challenging game. Flipslide is an addictive, fast paced puzzle game of skill! Flip to find the color and slide to match the lights. Your tweens can take it anywhere, play it anytime, it’s addictive fun for anyone! It has four different game modes to choose and it can be played alone or in multi-player mode.

4. Kikbo Kick Shuttlecock

Kids, tweens and teens who love soccer or sports in general will love this Kikbo Kick Shuttlecock game. It’s like badminton for your feet and a little easier than a hackysack! Soccer with wings! Kikbo is an awesome sport based on the ancient Chinese pass-time of Jianzi. It’s a great workout and one that builds your foot-eye coordination (great for soccer), especially during the winter months where getting outside with a ball is difficult. It’s also great for doing tricks. Beware the wind! It’ll make playing difficult. Each tube contains one Kikbo and feathers.

5. Epic Zero Book

I love these highly-reviewed Epic Zero Books. They are specifically for tween boys entering middle school. They have everything a superhero fan of middle-grade age could want: action, suspense, and more than a little humor. Epic Zero is the story of a young man born into a family of powerful superheroes, but with no powers of his own. His situation is unqiue, but the feelings of not-quite-belonging and the struggle to find a sense of purpose and identity are things we all wrestled with at that age. Readers find a main character they can relate to, and will understand and go along when he makes questionable choices in his attempts to figure himself out and make his mark on the world. They’ll be rooting for him from page one.
