17 Easter Basket Ideas Under $10 That Will Absolutely Delight Your Kids

Filling your kids' Easter baskets can be a tough task. Often, I find myself sifting through the dollar spot at Target or head to my local Dollar Tree to attempt to find cheap goodies that won't break or get tossed after just a few days of play. My go-tos like small containers of bubbles or sidewalk chalk are cheap and easy to add to my kids' Easter Basket, but when I want to buy my kids something a little more substantial, I typically look for fun Easter basket ideas under $10.

Getting my kids ready for spring and summer fun is what I try to aim for, so water guns, water balloons, beach towels, and even bathing suits are usually at the top my Easter basket shopping list. My kids are getting plenty of candy from hunting Easter eggs, so I try to make sure that their Easter baskets contain more than just an additional pile of chocolate bunnies and Peeps. (OK, maybe there will still be some Peeps.) Trying to stay on a budget while shopping for these gifts can be tricky, but by sticking to this handy list, I can make sure that my kids' Easter basket toys don't break the bank.
