Easter is right around the corner! Even if your kids no longer ‘believe’ in the Easter Bunny, the tradition of getting a basket on Easter morning is a hard one to give up. Everyone, young and old, loves getting an Easter basket.
For the baseball lovers in your household, it’s easy to put together a Baseball Easter Basket.
Start with your basic basket, then add in some sweet (and salty) snacks. Finally, finish it off with some fun baseball themed extras. Here are some fun ideas that I’ve used when building a Baseball Easter Basket for my own kids!

If your kids have outgrown the *adorable* pastel Easter basket from their toddler years, here is a practical upgrade that will be reused after the Easter grass has been packed away until next year. This rectangular storage bin hold plenty of treats and will get a second life as bedroom storage.
If you need a filler for the basket, this green Crinkle Cut Paper Basket Filler is recyclable, biodegradable, and can be reused next Easter as well. Plus it’s the perfect green color for a baseball themed basket.
When you’re fully committed to a baseball theme, using Plastic Baseball-themed Easter Eggs is a must. If your kids aren’t into jelly beans, stuff the eggs with coins or cash.
Sweets and Snacks
My kids aren’t really into candy, but they love gum. I honestly don’t understand the appeal, but they love getting Big League Chew – 5 Flavor Variety Pack in their baskets.
My kids are always thrilled to find new flavors of sunflower seeds. This David Sunflower Seeds 11 Flavor Variety Pack has some new flavors that they’ve never tried (Dill Pickle?) and will be a sure fire hit on Easter morning.
A baseball themed Easter basket just wouldn’t be complete without a box or two of Cracker Jack.
If you’re looking for a nut-free alternative to Cracker Jack, Popcornopolis 12 Cone Variety Pack is nut free and offers fun flavors like Caramel and Kettle Corn. Plus the bags are cute and look great in a basket.
PEZ dispensers are an Easter Basket standby, and this Baseball PEZ Dispenser with 2 Candy Refills would look great in any Baseball themed basket.
This Dubble Bubble Home Run Bat would add height to a Baseball Theme Easter Basket.
These colorful Franklin Sports Foam Training Baseballs are a fun addition to an Easter basket. They also won’t damage your walls when your kids decide to have an indoor catch on Easter morning.
Spot-it MLB Edition Baseball Card Game was a stocking stuffer for my kids a couple years ago, but we still take it on every road trip. Spot-it is a fast paced, short game than anyone can play. Each player turns over a card, and the first to ‘spot’ the one similarity (an MLB Logo, mascot, etc.) between all players cards ‘wins’.
Everyone loves getting an Easter basket!
Even if your kids are ‘too old’ for the Easter Bunny, you can still give them something to look forward to on Easter morning. Build a baseball themed basket using a practical container, some sweet and salty snacks, and fun surprises to give your older kids and tweens something to enjoy on Easter.
