Putting together Easter baskets for little kids is pretty easy. But what about teenagers? The days of going to the store and grabbing cute things in the seasonal aisle are long gone. When kids turn into teens, they become “too old” for this and that. But, I believe that deep down inside they still want to be treated like a kid and want to feel special in certain ways. Like when it comes to holidays. I remember wanting to be treated like I was older, but I still wanted an Easter basket on Easter morning. That’s what gave me the idea to come up with Easter basket ideas for teenagers. Swap out the little kid things like bubbles and little games for more age appropriate basket fillers. The candy, however, is ageless. Sweet treats will always be included no matter what the age!
This Easter basket is a combination of things teens may need and things they want. They may not want a new package of underwear, but they may need new ones. They may not need a 12oz DOVE® Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny, but may want one. It’s a nice balance. I went to Walmart and purchased my Easter basket and goodies to fill it with. Here’s what I got.
- 8oz M&M’s® Easter Sundae (only being sold for a limited time exclusively at Walmart.)
- 12oz Starburst® Strawberry or Original Jellybeans
- 12oz DOVE® Milk Chocolate Easter Bunny
- 4.5oz DOVE® Solid Milk Chocolate Bunny
- 11oz Easter M&M’s® Milk Chocolate
- Hubba Bubba® $1 Bubble Tape
- beef jerky sticks
- pack of underwear
- tshirt (I shaped it into a sort-of Easter Bunny)
- two pair of basketball shorts
- cell phone charger
- ear buds
- reusable water bottle
- bunny money (scroll down to the free printable below)
More great ideas to add to the basket are:
- 23.5oz Easter Mixed Brand Chocolates (package includes SNICKERS®, DOVE®, M&M’s®, TWIX®, MILKY WAY®, 3 Musketeers®)
- Skittles® $1 egg
- Skittles® $1 tube
- 11oz M&M’s® Easter Tri Packs
I thought it would be a cute idea to roll the t-shirt into a bunny shape. You can add stickers or pom-poms for the eyes and nose to make it look even more bunny-like.
Fold the sleeves over so the shirt is in the shape of a rectangle.
Fold it in half (if it’s an adult sized shirt, you may have to fold it twice.)
Roll it up.
Fold it in half.
Tie it with a ribbon, twine, or piece of yarn so it looks like a bunny head with ears.
And now for the Bunny Money
Along with candy and the other non-candy Easter basket fillers, I wanted to keep a tradition going that I’ve done throughout the years. I made Bunny Money. These are coupons that kids can hand in for fun things like a chore-free day.
These coupons are a great way for your teen to feel special and have fun throughout the year. Instead of making it into a booklet, you can also slip them into plastic Easter eggs for an Easter egg hunt! Print out the Bunny Money below. Cut out the coupons and make a little booklet. There’s a cover and even a blank coupon for you to fill in something personal. Staple them or use a hole punch and small piece of ribbon. Simple and easy!
