Easter basket ideas for Catholic kids


When Easter finally arrives after a long Lent, my kids are ready for some fun. In fact, Easter has quickly become one of their favorite holidays, especially when the day is nice enough to hunt for their Easter baskets outside.

This year I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite things to put into Catholic kids’ Easter baskets, all available at OSV.


For understanding Easter: God the Father and Best Day Ever

A beautifully illustrated book that teaches kids about Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.

For the Rosary lover: Tiny Saints Rosary

A great first Rosary for kids 3 and up.


Easter eggs

Some people do each child’s Christmas presents in the same paper. Try the same idea for Easter eggs. That way you can make sure each kids gets an equal amount of eggs. You could even hide one large egg that contains a little something for each kid.


Ideas for filling Easter eggs

  • Write scripture on pieces of paper
  • Stickers
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Coupons for something they love
  • Coins
  • Tiny Saint charms
