Need a fun & easy Easter basket or gift idea?
Consider gifting little surprises inside plastic Easter eggs and presenting them in a wrapped egg carton!
It’s such a cute gift or Easter basket idea that kiddos will LOVE, plus it’s a clever way to recycle an egg carton you’d ordinarily throw away. I love this idea as it’s creative, and it’s easy for anyone to make!
Grab some small Easter treats and toys!
The good news is, you can go straight to Dollar Tree for everything you need, so this can be a super low-cost idea. I’d even look around the house for any small treats and toys you think would be fun.
I chose to spray paint my carton first, but that step is up to you. Then, all I did was fill my eggs and wrap up my carton. It’s an easy and ADORABLE gift idea.
Fun Easter egg filler ideas:
- Peeps, jelly beans, bunny graham crackers, chocolate coins, or other small, individually-wrapped candies
- silly putty, slime
- sticky stretchy hands, mini paratrooper toys, mini dinosaurs
- bouncy balls, stickers, temporary tattoos
