As a teacher at a Christian preschool, Easter is a major celebration, and honestly, it’s just my favorite holiday. I know not all of you celebrate Easter at school or home, but hopefully, these ideas could be used for other small gift-giving occasions like birthday parties. All of these toys fit into some educational category from literacy, to sensory play, to STEM. You can feel good about giving these educational Easter basket fillers to kids you care about.
