Easter baskets aren’t ALL about candy. I love including fun things that keep my kids busy (and won’t cause cavities). If you are looking for a few ideas that won’t break the bank, I’ve got ’em!
The Just My Style Tie Dye Bag is so much fun! It comes with everything you need to dye up to 12 projects (you supply the articles of clothing). It even comes with suggested directions to make all sorts of different patterns or you can wing it and see what happens! That’s the cool thing about tie dying, you can’t really mess it up!
We bought two cotton tees and a tank top. My youngest daughter also wanted to dye one of the shirts from her closet. The set also came with a white scrunchie to dye!
Get each item wet and ring it out. Tie it up however you’d like with the rubber bands. Once you’ve rubber banded your pieces, you’re ready to dye! Just add warm water to the bottles and shake to mix. Use the provided gloves so you won’t stain your hands. We did the dying over the sink but it would be fun to do this part outside if the weather is nice!
This kit came with pink, yellow and blue dye. These are the perfect colors because you can combine them to make other colors like orange, green and purple. The bag the kit comes in can be used to speed up the process after your items have been dyed by putting them in the microwave. Directions are provided. We started this project pretty close to bedtime so we just bagged up our projects and let them sit overnight instead.
In the morning, I cut the bands off and rinsed the dye from the shirts. This part is really fun because you get to see how they turned out!
This Just My Style Tie Dye kit comes in a variety of themes including Neon Glow and Pretty Pastel. You can find them on Amazon for only $7.99!
Another fun Easter basket idea is Aqua Dough. These kits come in two different themes (Mermaid and Underwater Shark) and allow you to create your own water toys that stretch, mold, float and change colors! For a fun sensory experience, play with this squishy dough in buckets or bowls of water — it won’t fall apart or dissolve while you play with it and it never dries out!
Aqua Dough changes colors while you play with it from blue to pink, light green to white, and purple to blue. It’s so much fun! After you’re done playing with it just wring out the excess water and let it dry completely before storing in it’s reusable container. Each kit is only $6.99!
