Easter Basket Ideas for Tweens
The first step in creating a tween Easter basket is using a great basket. We love these colourful storage baskets. They aren’t a typical Easter basket, but they are super useful for storing things in your tween’s bedroom. The colours are great and this is nice size for stuffing all of the Easter treats inside.
If your tween would prefer something softer, this cloth storage basket is another great option. Again, you want to use something that will be put to good use after being used as an Easter basket.
Now it’s time to fill up the basket! Skip the typical plastic grass and line the basket with a cute pillow case that your tween can use in their bedroom. These soft Cosy House Collection pillowcases come in great colours and are made from bamboo fibres. Choose a colour that coordinate’s with your tween’s bedroom.
