Easter Basket Idea for Teens from Walmart
If you're looking for an easy and affordable Easter basket idea that will please your teenage children or college-aged kids, look no further than this Easter basket I filled with gift cards, candy, and money from Walmart. It's the perfect way to show them how much you care, without spending a fortune. Plus, they'll be able to use this easter basket idea well after the holiday is over.
- cooler or lunch bag either one would be work
- packing paper or kraft paper
- crinkles or Easter grass
- large items and small items
- tissue paper
- Cricut monogram optional
Start with an igloo cooler. You can find these at most stores or online HERE.
Add packing paper. Crumple up individual sheets of packing paper or kraft paper from the Dollar Tree to create a base inside your "Easter basket" cooler.
Add a top layer of paper folded in half to create a 'shelf-like' barrier upon which to start your Easter basket filler.
Grab your favorite Easter basket filler. I used brown crinkle paper for a more neutral base, but you can find it in all sorts of bright and festive Easter colors just about everywhere.
Add as much as you like. I added a bag and a half to each cooler.
Next, fill the Easter basket with the largest items. (See my list of Easter basket ideas below)
Fill in with smaller gift items and lastly add gift cards to their favorite stores or restaurants.
As an added bonus, I like to fill a few plastic eggs like these with money as a surprise for them to find in the Easter basket.
Finally, fill in the gaps and any holes in your Easter basket with some tissue paper.
