Easter Basket Ideas 2020

With the social distancing, quarantine, and closures happening right now our life is pretty disrupted. At this point we are no longer able to attend religious services and our plans for Easter are very much up in the air. With all these changes, I do want to keep our celebration of Easter at home with the children as familiar to them as possible. So, I've been gathering some things for their Easter baskets and thought I would share. 

Here are some Montessori ideas and activities for Easter baskets. This post contains ideas for babies, toddlers, and bigger kids.

This year I tried to go with mostly indoor activities since we are stuck inside or in our yard for the foreseeable future. I will likely add some outdoor chalk and bubbles plus a couple small treats to each basket - depending on if and what I can find in our local stores. Here's a look at each child's basket.

Henry - 9-years-old

Binoculars - Our old binoculars were lost last summer in a hiking trip and Henry has been talking about getting new ones since. Yellow, because it's his forever favorite.

Here are some Montessori ideas and activities for Easter baskets. This post contains ideas for babies, toddlers, and bigger kids.

Comic Book Paper - Henry is super into drawing comics right now and I thought this looks like a fun way to expand that interest a bit further.
Erasable Color Pencils - With his comic drawing he needs something a bit more precise but also erasable. These looked like the perfect option to go with the paper!

Nora - 5-years-old 

Mini Rainbow - This felt like a fun option for my rainbow baby! She loves the mini-wave set we have so this will expand that play.

Erasable Markers - These just looked cool!
Nature's Day Out and About - I actually found this in the Target dollar spot, and it just has a bunch of fun activities to try out in nature.

Augustus - 3-years-old 

Truck Sticker Book - Gus loves trucks and "workers" so these will be a big hit.

Here are some Montessori ideas and activities for Easter baskets. This post contains ideas for babies, toddlers, and bigger kids.
Stencils - Gus is starting to become more intentional with his drawing and I think he will really like these.
Do-a-Dot Markers - We used to have a set but they ran out of ink so I know he will love a return to using these.

Theodore - 7-months-old

Tales from Nature: Rabbit - Just a cute book I found in the dollar spot!

Here are some Montessori ideas and activities for Easter baskets. This post contains ideas for babies, toddlers, and bigger kids.

Animal Babies - Again, just a cute dollar spot book
Rubber Teether - You can't have enough teethers for a baby that is still toothless!


And, that's it! I hope you find some inspiration here. If you need more ideas for Easter Baskets, check out my post Easter Baskets for Montessori Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers Updated 2018 or  Our Easter Baskets 2018

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
