Do your littlest kids love receiving an Easter basket on Easter morning? Mine do too!
Except there’s always that dilemma… what do we stuff the Easter baskets with?
It’s easy to fill an Easter basket with chocolate (mmm… I always got a chocolate Easter egg in my basket as a kid!).
But, honestly, I want my kids–even my preschoolers–to know that Easter is so much more than chocolates in a basket.
I want them to know that Easter is about Jesus and the gift of salvation.
How can we share that wonderful Easter message with our youngest kids?
Here’s some of my family’s favorite Easter resources for toddlers and preschoolers. These would be great Easter basket stuffers!
And I’ve made it super easy for you (’cause we’re all busy moms). Just click on the link and you can buy it directly on Amazon!
Easy peasy, right?

“The scripture sung in the form of lullabies is a powerful ‘do not be afraid for I am with you’ message, something we all benefit from.

Not only is this a wonderful way to share gentle messages about God through song, the lullaby music on this CD is incredibly relaxing (even for adults!). This gift is great for kids who are prone to nightmares or who just want a good night’s sleep.

Most of the scriptures that my kids have memorized have come from listening to this CD. Seriously!
What a great way to get Bible verses in your kids’ hearts–while running errands! These are high-quality songs that kids love! Awesome Easter gift!
“I grew up listening to these songs in the car (on tape back then). I can still sing the songs. These are not cheesy. The words to the songs are simply a Bible verse. The vocals are exceptional for children’s voices. They harmonize on most of them. Each song has a quick spoken intro, then a child says the Bible verse, then the song starts. Really great quality and fun songs!” –Becky (Amazon)
5 Stars on Amazon and a classic for kids! Help your kids easily memorize Bible verses too!
Over 300 reviews and nearly 5 stars!
Although this isn’t about Easter, kids love this great movie that tells about what Jesus was like. Claymation and cell animation combine to re-tell elements of Jesus’ life.
“The voice acting is superb. The animation is so well done the figures take on a life of their own. The story is also great because it adheres faithfully to the teachings of Jesus and the creators did a great job of making everything authentic looking. If you are looking for a video to watch with children/grandchildren about Jesus, this is the one to get!”–Halo9x
What a great way to fill our kid’s hearts with hope! Check out this as a Easter basket stuffer!
The Jesus Film… Made for Children!
“My 5-year old grandchild was spell-bound by this right through to the end & was involved, answering back to the children in the movie. This is a great Gospel tool for you to watch with your children or grandchildren.” –Nancy (Amazon)
LOVE this timeless classic. If you’ve seen the “Jesus Film”, this is an adaption for kids of that original movie. It is biblically accurate and compelling for kids and includes the powerful telling of Easter through the eyes of a child (without being too graphic or scary). It’s a keeper in our home!
This movie tells the story to life through the eyes of a child, and invites incredible discussion. Such a great movie! Highly recommend as an Easter gift for any child.
