Easter is right around the corner! Get ahead of the game with these great ideas for a teen’s Easter basket…

Just because our teens don’t believe in the Easter Bunny anymore, doesn’t mean we can’t spoil them with a few little gifts!  *This post may contain affiliate links.  This means, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a small commission if you click the link and make a purchase.  

(During these days of COVID-19, we need to remember that our teens need to have fun and have something to look forward to. These gifts are all fun and/or useful. Let’s make Easter a fun holiday to look forward to during these uncertain days.

One thing that is happening locally is that families are posting pics of pretty colored eggs in their window for kids to look for on neighborhood walks. Another idea would be for your older kids to put on a puppet show or video for younger kids. Be creative, and let your teens think of fun things to do!)

Fill your teen's Easter basket with love!

Most of the posts that I tried to find to link to this article had really silly ideas for teens at Easter, so here are some that I came up with after talking to my boys and their cousins who are all older teens. 

Involve your teens in the planning of this holiday.  They love to help with the younger kids.  Decorate and hide the eggs.  Stuff plastic eggs for younger siblings. 

Help your teen find a volunteer opportunity for your teen at church or with your city.  Visit an assisted living facility and give little treats to the elderly. 

Watch Passion of the Christ as a family and discuss the meaning of this important holiday. (Caution, this is for older teens.) And, for fun, watch Hop for some lighthearted fun! Movies are great additions to a teen’s Easter basket.

Pin for later.

  5. What a tough time to be a teenager, especially a graduating senior. Your ideas are great.

    Reply
    • Thank you! Yes, we have a college senior which he has even said is not so bad as if he were losing his senior year in high school.

  6. Great ideas. I used to use the really big plastic eggs (like the size pantyhose used to come in) and stick anything and everything inside them that would fit. Two-piece swim suits – top and bottom in different eggs. Make-up! Gift cards. My daughter is 30. I kind of miss making fun baskets for her.

    • My mother-in-law did that too! She would wad up money, and it would explode out when the kids would open it. She had some even bigger ones, I wonder where she got them? I had forgotten about them. Happy Easter!
