Easter Gift Ideas for Toddlers and Tweens
If you’re a regular reader then you’ll know that I have rather large age gaps between my children. Most of the time it’s really difficult to get the balance right when planning day trips or activities that suit everybody. Obviously, the eldest at 22 is not included in this round-up, but will of course get his fair share of chocolate goodies. I find that crafts, baking and games seem to be things that interest both the three year old and the eleven year old, so we’ll go with this theme.
This round-up is a selection of Chocolate alternatives since both kids tend to get more than their body weight in chocolate from friends and family.
Ceramic Painting Sets – £1.00 each – Pound Shop
I found these lovely ceramic painting sets in the Pound Shop. They had a choice of an Easter Egg, a Chick and a Bunny. Each set came with a set of three paints and a mini paintbrush. The surrounding Easter Animals were also from the Pound Shop and were available in various themes including Easter Animals, Farmyard Animals and Jungle Animals.
Play-Doh Colour Burst Set – £4.99 – TK Maxx
I picked up this really cool Play-doh set which has four pots with sprinkles of different colours that you mix together. It looks really cool when you first get it out and the colours swirl into each other.
Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bogey £6.99
I picked up a book for both Freddie and Belle at the school book fair. This was my choice for Freddie who finds anything that includes bums, farting, pooh, and bogies absolutely hilarious. This book is really funny and includes a few fairytale favourites including Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and Goldilocks. It also comes with three pingable bogies. It was a huge hit!
Uproar – £8.99 – McMiller
Uproar is a bit like snap, but you turn two cards over and find two matching words and sound out whatever the sound is including a hungry pig and slurping soup. This is aimed at 8 years and upwards but as long as you can read, you can play. It is absolutely hilarious, and in fact, my eldest will probably pinch this to play with his mates as part of their pre-drinks before going out.
The Smart Girls Guide to Life – £6.99 – Amazon
Isabelle has been struggling with anxiety recently and so we’ve been doing lots of work on feelings and emotions, and how to deal with them. This book has loads of stuff including the kind of quizzes that I used to do in teen magazines and an agony aunt type section.
Scratch Art Set – £6.99
A Personalised Easter Bunny Mug – £8.99
Easter Craft Jar – £6.00 – Hobby Craft
A huge jar full of everything the kids need to keep them entertained during the Easter Holidays.
Acrylic Paint Pens – £10.18
These Acrylic Paint Pens are perfect for decorating Eggs in time for Easter. They can be used on lots of other stuff too including wood, pebbles, canvas, and glass.
Easter Toss Game – £8.99
This game can be played inside or outside and come with four beanbags. This would be suitable for both Freddie and Isabelle so a win win situation for me as a Mum.
Bath Bombs – £7.99
Easter Stampers – £8.49
These stamps are great for little hands, and each one is inside an egg. This set of 12 eggs could be used as part of an Easter Egg Hunt.
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it was going to be to find Easter Gifts that would be suitable for both age groups.
If you are looking for something to keep the little ones entertained then Pom Pom Painting can be a lot of fun!
