Reading is so important, especially at toddler-age! It significantly impacts their language development and social skills. Plus how cute is it when they start picking up words?? My 18mo daughter sees The Pout-Pout Fish and says “Bub, bub, bub” instead of “Blub, blub, blub” and it is so precious! I also suggest board books because they are more durable and toddlers love to destroy things.
Here are two books that our daughter is getting in her basket:
Piggy Paint is a natural nail polish that is non-toxic, odorless, and hypoallergenic. It’s free of harsh chemicals found in a lot of other nail polish brands. EWG.org is a great resource to check ingredient safety of your products.
Green Toys, Inc makes their toys completely out of recycled plastic in the US. They are BPA and phthalate free and printed with soy ink. I love the mission and this tea set would be perfect for a little girl. Although I plan to get this pink race car for her instead.
It’s a great time to grab a swimsuit for the season as warm weather is coming! I like a rash guard to protect from UV rays and snaps on the bottom are a must while diaper changes are still needed! Here’s what we got for the season:
The cutest tiny suit I’ve ever seen! Seriously so cute I squealed a little.
Bubbles & Bubble Machine
Bubbles are such a fun, easy outdoor entertainment option. Here are some options for non-toxic bubbles:

Another great outdoor activity! I like these because they are non-toxic and the chunky size makes them perfect for little hands.
Coloring Books & Crayons
Coloring Books from the dollar store are perfect for an Easter basket. Pair them with some non-toxic crayons and you’re set.
I hope you found this helpful for creating a sustainable Easter basket! What are you including in your children’s baskets this year? I’d love to know!
