Easter Baskets for Boys
If you are filling easter baskets for boys this year, we have some great ideas of non-candy items you can put in your baskets this year. At our house, we put just a small amount of candy in the kids’ baskets and we like to add a few small toys or books to fill the baskets. They already get so much candy at local Easter egg hunts that we like to limit the sweets, plus I like to restock things like art supplies, reading materials or outdoor toys.

These large Lego sticker collections are really nice quality sticker books. The The Lego Movie Ultimate Sticker Collection comes with over 1000 stickers that, if you are careful, you can use over and over again in your book for hours of fun. If you are decorating Easter baskets with an Star Wars theme, check out this Lego Star Wars Minifigures Ultimate Sticker Collection.
These poppers are great for Easter baskets for boys. You can choose from several different silly monster poppers and if you have more than one boy in your house, they can have a popper war. Each kooky monster comes with 5 balls to pop and these Hog Wild Monster Poppers can shoot up to 20 feet!
If your boys are into Minecraft, they will love this papercraft set. These highly-reviewed sets are made of durable cardstock and include some fun stickers. Get those boys crafting with their favorite Minecraft theme. The Minecraft Papercraft Hostile Mobs Set includes some of those silly green creepers and I just love the farm animals in the Minecraft Papercraft Animal Mobs Set.
Older boys will be thrilled to get this Tribute Kendama in their Easter basket. While this toy is a bit pricey, it is a quality skill-based game for boys. It comes in so many fun, vibrant colors too.
These highly-reviewed paper airplane books for boys would be a fun addition to your Easter baskets for boys. I am a big fan of Klutz craft kits. Paper Flying Dragons is a high-quality paper airplane book by Klutz. Your boys can punch out and assemble these fantastic flyers, which are made of cardstock. They are also scored to ease in folding. I also think this Star Wars Folded Flyers book is very neat for Star Wars fans. Your boys will love the included 30 paper starfighters.
Drop this fun, Tangle-Free Toy Parachute and watch this tiny parachuter glide down to the ground. My boys have gotten many of those inexpensive parachute guys, but the strings always seem to get tangled and they end up in the garbage after a few uses. This tangle-free parachuter will provide hours of fun!
Your kids will be amazed at these tablets that will color their bath. What a cool way to teach your kids their colors and make bathtime fun!

This Color My Bath Color Changing Bath Tablets set includes 100 large tablets and 200 small tablets.
8. Mad Libs
I had so much fun with Mad Libs as a kid and my middle son just laughs and laughs at these. He also loves that there are boy-themed ones that are perfect for him. I love how affordable Mad Libs are and if you write in them with a pencil, you can erase and do them over and over again. If you have a Lego fan at home, this LEGO Star Wars Mad Libs is so much fun.
This small Hog Wild Toys Air Strike Catapult will provide hours of fun. It includes suction cups and 6 soft, spiky balls for lots of launching fun. It’s small size makes it fun for indoor use and and base pivots so you can shoot in different directions. This would be great for Easter baskets for boys.
My kids’ school requires lots of nightly reading and book reports and what a fun way to mark your page. These affordable i-clips Magnetic Bookmarks come in so many different patterns and they just slip over and hold your page until your kids read again next time. The best part is that they won’t fall out of the book like traditional bookmarks when the book is carried or dropped. These Skulls i-Clip Magnetic Page Markers are really fun for boys that like pirates and if you have a tween, they will love the fun Emoticons i-Clips Magnetic Bookmarks. Each set includes 8 bookmarks.
