No matter how old your kids are growing, they’ll never outgrow the love of getting fun surprises on Easter morning. But when they reach tween and teen status, it gets more difficult to fill their baskets with things they’ll really like and use. There are a lot of things they’re “too old” for, but that doesn’t mean they should have to miss out on the Easter morning fun, whether they believe in the Bunny or not.
These Easter basket stuffers for tweens and teens strike a perfect balance: they’ll appeal to your big kid’s playful side, but they’re not appallingly babyish. From the squeezy simplicity of an old-fashioned egg full of Silly Putty, to a delicious DIY cookie decorating kit, to the pick you can never go wrong with — a gift card — we’ve put together a roundup of stuff that your tween or teen will actually be glad to find in their Easter basket.
