Baby’s First Easter Basket
We are so excited planning for the arrival of little girl #3 this summer!
With Easter on the way, it got me thinking about what would be perfect for a baby’s first Easter basket.
I wanted our basket to be useful – filled with things that moms and babies really need.
I also wanted our baby Easter basket to be just as cute as the baskets the older girls receive.
A quick trip to our local craft store turned up adorable see-through bunny eggs that could easily be filled with little goodies like socks. They also had carrot-shaped eggs and eggs shaped like chicks. It was so hard to decide, but we went with a bunny theme for our basket!
Update: Great Day Houston invited us to show their audience how we made our Baby’s First Easter Basket, along with more non-candy Easter baskets for kids, like our Book Lover’s Easter Basket. Click here to watch the segment!

Build Your Baby Easter Basket
Here’s a step by step look at all of our Easter basket ideas for babies and how we assembled everything. First, watch the video tutorial, then keep reading for more detailed photo instructions.

First, we layered the bottom of our baby Easter basket with a pack of wipes and rolled-up receiving blankets until the space was completely filled.
Next, we covered our surprise supplies on the bottom of the basket with another receiving blanket. I wanted to avoid the traditional “grass” basket fillers that could be dangerous for babies.
We found cute see-through eggs at our local craft store that we filled with things like pajamas, caps, and onesies.
Bunny-shaped eggs were filled with socks – which you can never have to many of with a new baby! (They’re always losing socks!)
Finally, we tucked shoes, Easter-themed baby books and other little things in any open space left in our infant Easter basket.
So simple, but so useful!
Our baby Easter basket used a regular-sized basket, and we were able to fit quite a bit of baby clothing and supplies inside.
If you purchased a jumbo-sized Easter basket, you could include even more baby gear: perhaps more wipes, diapers, and memory books or keepsake craft kits!
