Creative Easter Basket Ideas
I love getting my kids’ Easter baskets ready each year! The Easter Bunny fills them with goodies and then sends them on an Easter scavenger hunt with clues to solve along the way. It’s always SO much fun to watch the kids solve the riddles and hunt for their basket. And of course, everyone loves it when they find all their treats at the end!
This year I wanted to switch up the traditional woven basket and try something new. After all, half the fun for me in putting together an Easter basket is the presentation! So I went looking for unique Easter basket containers that could be used as a substitute for the traditional Easter bucket or basket.
I found some of the most creative ideas out there! There was everything from toys that can be used as containers to DIY baskets for the crafty type. Naturally, I wanted to share them all with you so that you can be as inspired as I was!
Here are 16 unique alternatives for your Easter basket container. Use these ideas to think outside the basket and have the bunny bring your sweetie something different this year!
