Are you looking for some DIY Easter Basket ideas that don’t involve running to the store or ordering gifts online?
You can make some amazing gifts at home that your family will love. It’s a great year to be intentional about what Easter Basket Stuffers our kids are going to receive.
Have fun creating gifts that will put a smile on your child’s face on Easter morning, while giving them activities to keep them entertained for days!
DIY Easter Baskets Fillers… that don’t come from a store.
Remember that the best gifts are actually non-toy gifts! Experiences matter so much more than toys. They create memories and that’s what a child truly needs… time with the people who love them.

Easter Basket Gift Ideas
If you have time to make gifts, check out these DIY Easter Basket Fillers!
I found some of the most adorable homemade kid gifts and put them in one place for you!
There are ideas for kids from slime-filled mason jars that look like bunnies to an adorable bunny basket that holds their pens and pencils. You’ll find homemade dollhouse furniture, dish-towel aprons, hot-glue projects, fresh flowers with a gift idea, and even a few Easter gifts for adults. I hope that you find some great Easter Basket ideas!
Homemade Easter Baskets Fillers (that don’t come from a store)
When you can’t make it to the store, but you still want to give your children a fun gift to open, these are perfect. I actually love them more than a store-bought gift, because they were made.
Every homemade gift is a gift to be cherished because it took thought, planning, time, and effort to make it. What a great way to show someone that you love them!
If you are looking for Easter Basket Stuffers & you still have a couple of days before Easter, these ideas are awesome!
This is my favorite idea ever! Find stuff around the house – anything & everything that you aren’t using… put it all into a box & give it to your kids as their new “INVENTION BOX”
This has kept our kids busy for hours on end. Every few months, I refill it. 🙂
Plus – if they find a button, a clothespin, whatever it may be… they put it into this box.
Gift them the ingredients (that you probably already have at home) to make slime! You can even use a bowl for the Easter Basket!
If you can find some sidewalk chalk sitting around your house or in your garage, pair it with some painters tape & give it to your kids with a cool design that you drew on a sheet of paper. Tell them that you are going to make Stained-Glass Sidewalk Chalk Art together.
This gift gives kids a reminder of the reason for the season in a fun new way.
Give your kids their own mailbox! Let them decide where to hang it, but have it stuffed with fun letters that they can open when they find their basket.
All it takes is a couple of plastic lids (from a container that was for icing, cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt, etc…) and a few other things that you already have at home. Give this to your kids with their favorite card game (that you already have at home) and invite them to start playing!
If you have yarn at home, this one is for you. It’s adorable and practical!
This DIY Rubber Band Racer is one of our favorite kid-friendly activities to do as a family. Our kids really like to make DIY toys and the best part…you can make it with items found around the home. There’s nothing like seeing the smiles on your kid’s faces as they make homemade toys.
You probably already have so many of these things lying around your house – gather them together to make a DIY Hair Salon kit for your kids!
This is so much fun! The kids are going to love it.
You can find just about anything here, from a couch made out of an Egg Carton to a Coffee Table out of a Yogurt Container… even a dollhouse toilet made from a spice container!
How about making it easier on the little guys and putting all of their tools into a tool belt…. Perfectly sized for them.
DIY Wooden Cookies & Milk set! SO much easier than I would have assumed… and adorable!
Create a paper doll kit: Put the materials into their basket for a fun surprise! They can have these paper dolls to play with any time. To create the kit, print out a bunch of doll templates, cut out the fabric clothing and gather together buttons, ribbons and glue sticks.
These DIY Doll Diapers & Wipes are adorable!
Turn a dishtowel into an apron for your kids! Adorable!
This is not only cute, but it’s practical!
This will keep your kids interested & playing with LEGO for hours!
Give them the game of I SPY with this DIY Activity game in a bag!
If your kids love arts & crafts, this crayon holder is adorable! All you need is a block of wood & you can get started!
Give your kids a great gift with this wooden-block puzzle that is a picture of them!
The best puzzle cube in history is clearly the Rubik’s Cube. But I don’t think it’s a stretch to say this is a close second. This puzzle takes about an hour to build, and it’s way easier to build than it is to solve!
If you have any cardboard boxes taking up space in the garage or waiting to go out to the trash… use them!
Give your kids a “COUPON” for a movie night… and then tell them to go into the other room to find something they’ll need for the movie. When they go into the other room, have these DIY cardboard box cars ready for them!
Make sidewalk paint with these household items & put them into cute jars for your kids! They make a great Easter Basket Filler because you can go outside & paint together!
This is adorable! What more can I say?!
Use cans and turn them into adorable drums!
If you have a washcloth & ribbon you can make this adorable washcloth bunny! Be creative! If you can’t find googly eyes, make felt eyes or draw them on your bunny’s face.
Turn slime into an adorable Easter Bunny with just a few things that you may have in the kitchen!
