Easter Art & Crafts
Who doesn't love Easter crafts? It is a great way to entertain the kids during school holidays so an Easter themed craft kit is an egg-cellent (can't help myself 😝) way to keep the kids occupied over the April holidays. Create some art with personalised wooden eggs and use them for Easter hunt, or alternative have some sensory activity with using our stampers on play dough, or use them on cookies! That is also a great alternative to just chocolates to gift others. Chunkies paint sticks are a definitely a great gift for those who loves to keep messy painting to a minimal.
Easter Keepsake Toys
When it comes to Easter toys and gifts the beauty is almost anything bunny, egg or chicken themed can work as an Easter gift idea. These educational toys and games are all great gift ideas for every bunny (#punintended).
Ranging from those heirloom wooden bunnies that is perfect for small world play to those wooden coloured eggs which can be used for easter egg hunt or simply use them for sorting, matching and colour recognition. What about those cute felt hot cross buns? Perfect addition to the pretend play. Best part of it all, they're great for play all year round, not just at Easter.
Easter Magical Play
Did you know the Easter Bunny lives on the moon? Well, no one really knows for sure, but if you look up at night when the moon is full, you can see his ears and feet sticking up out of bed. Why not include some magical play for all the bunny believers that want to add a little bit of extra magic to their Easter holiday.
Easter Books & Games
We have a huge love of books in our house, so much so that my daughter counted every single book we had to see if we qualify the criteria to call our reading space a library. I love stocking beautiful and unique books including activity and art books. They are definitely a growing collection I have in store.These are some of our favourites that are currently in store.
And if you're not much of a book reader, why invest in some fun to have with the whole family during Easter. Games are a great way to spend some time together as a family during this Easter. You can organised a egg hunt in your own home, or an Easter Scavenger hunt which is always lots of fun. Alternatively just some easy memory card game or do some puzzles together. These are all great way to encourage critical thinking skills and problem solving.
There are several reasons why you should consider buying your child a toy instead of chocolate this Easter. The first and obvious reason would be the high sugar content in chocolates and the short-lived moments they can provide. On the contrary, quality and intentional toys can provide hours of entertainment and enjoyment by encouraging children to use their imaginations and in turn, aid with child's cognitive, emotional and physical development.
Most importantly, these play based toys can also be a cherished possessions that nurture those young minds and growing hearts of happiness for years to come
And finally, Happy Easter everyone! I hope you have found this gift guide with lots of non chocolate Easter gifts for kids to be useful and that it has given you some inspiration!
