Easter baskets once used to be filled with egg-shaped candies, bunny plushies, and our favorite sugar-dusted marshmallow avian friends, you know the ones. Plastic windups, live animals, and “toys for the day” have seemingly taken over the coveted #1 spot in young minds.
Exceed expectations this year by gifting growables they’ve never seen before. Better than a forgettable snap bracelet, offering a gift that keeps up with its recipient is so much fun. An experience in a basket, our ideas for Easter are sure to please the growing mind in your life no matter their age.
For our young egg-rollers, we recommend a family-made afternoon. Try on a Curious Critter for size and attract helpful pollinators and additional friendly fauna to your backyard summertime bug watches. Or, make pizza night a family affair using a DIY Pizza Seedball kit. Grow your ingredients from the start for a super-special farm to table memory to be savored all the way down to the crust.
For budding Artists, gift on a Cosmic Seed Kit in their Elemental Star Sign—or their favorite color, we won’t tell. Cosmic Seed Kits unfold to a neat origami square, prime for folding into their seed-starting box. A calming activity, these gorgeous grows can sustain their seedlings for up to 10 weeks without the need of a transplant to their forever home, just in time for summer. Similarly, Microgreen popups were created for curious characters who enjoy accomplishing art projects on their own.
For our comparably Big Bunnies, take a peek at the sophisticated Flower Grow Kit. Whimsical seed types grown in modern silhouettes; these all-in-one planters are practically self-sustaining for your teen on-the-go with a tendency to forget. Just add water and sunlight.
Easter baskets can once again surprise and delight your kiddos in those old wholesome ways. Bring everyone together over growing as a family and cherish the once fleeting basket-opening frenzy having now stretched the moment through planting. But don’t forget the chocolate.
