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.

(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 happened locally last year was that families posted 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!)
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, watch Hop for some lighthearted fun! Movies are great additions to a teen’s Easter basket.
