Sharing is caring!

Want to keep Easter baskets and gifts pretty simple this year? All while encouraging your kids to get outside? I’ve got you covered with this Garden Themed Easter Basket filled with items from Target’s Dollar Spot! Check out this 2022 version, and see how you can get your kids gardening this spring.

Easy garden Easter basket

We like to keep Easter baskets pretty simple around here because we want our kids to be able to see past the “stuff” to what Easter is all about. In the past, we’ve usually chosen one stuffed animal, a book, and a small package of Lindt chocolate carrots for each child, and that’s served us well.

But this year, I saw an end cap of kids’ gardening supplies at Target, and I knew (cue bright light and angelic music) that this would be perfect for this year’s Easter baskets.

My kids have been more and more interested in the garden, and this provides a way to get kids equipped for helping, as well as give them something to grow. Because what is more perfect for Easter than to be able to watch plants come to life before their very eyes?

The wonder of creation contained in a tiny clay pot. Brilliant! So, you can tell I was more than a little excited to see that The Dollar Spot had various items for the kiddie gardener:

Easter basket garden items

  • Flower Seed Kits
  • DIY Succulent Planter (air dried clay)
  • Ceramic Planter
  • Sunglasses (to protect those eyes!)
  • Sidewalk Chalk
  • Peep Bath Bomb (for after gardening clean up)
  • Paper Shreds (for the filling)
  • Plastic Buckets

In years past, Target has had more hands on gardening supplies in the Dollar Spot, like spades, gloves, trowels, etc., but this year it was more basic.

But no worries! There were still lovely seed kits, chalk, sunglasses, and even some garden supplies for those who don’t necessarily want to dig in the dirt…. a succulent kit that uses clay.

Garden Easter Basket for $12

The filled garden Easter basket totaled $10, which I thought was a pretty good deal. My kids usually don’t “use” their actual baskets after Easter morning, so this bucket will work its way into our decor. Win-win.

So, if your kids already have a basket they use from year to year, the cost to create a garden-themed basket would be even less. Lucky you! So, think a little outside of the Easter basket this year, and consider what your kids can use and what won’t lay around the house uselessly.

I’d love to know what you like to put in your kids’ baskets, and what have they loved the most over the years! Happy Gardening!
