Growing up we always got the Easter baskets that came pre-filled and packaged all nice and neat. These are great but the unfortunate part is they only last for a few years.
What do you do when your 8-12 year old thinks he/she is a teenager and doesn’t care for kiddie toys anymore?
You figure out real quick how to create your own Easter basket. Today I wanted to share with you some Easter basket ideas for tweens and teens. These ideas are mostly geared towards girls because I have a daughter but if you are looking for boy ideas you can skip towards the bottom when I have a few to share as well.
Not that my daughter doesn’t still love to play with toys but I can see a definite transition in the last several months. She is much more into big girl things compared to even just this time last year. In a way, it makes me sad because it means she is growing up way to fast on me. However, I won’t lie and say that I am not glad that the plastic toys are on the outs.
So what do you get a girl who is more and more like a tween every day? Well, I thought I came up with some pretty good ideas. I also think these would work for a teenager too. Because you are never too big for an Easter basket. Am I right? Heck, I would love this whole set up myself.

The first thing I started out with is the Easter “basket” idea. I don’t know how many Easter baskets we have bought over the years but they usually last a year and then you have to buy another one. Why not make the Easter basket something they can use as well?
With that in mind, I decided to go with a tote. Here is a really cute tote if you are looking for ideas. It is getting closer to Summer time and we use totes around here for all sorts of things, especially when we are traveling. Then I filled it with some tissue paper because the kid already has too much stuff to begin with and didn’t need a whole tote full. After that just fill with all sorts of things you think your tween or teen will love.
