As you can see, some of these ideas are great for babies and toddlers and others are more appropriate for older kids.  I also included some good teenager ideas. 

I did my Easter Bunny shopping today and my munchkins are getting some of these items.  I did pick up the traditional chocolate bunnies and jelly beans too!  I'm excited to see their smiling faces on Easter morning. It is always so fun to see what little trinkets bring such huge happiness! 

What are some things that your little ones might find in their baskets on Easter morning?  I'd love to hear!
