Inside this post: They are not too big! Here are some great ideas for Easter basket fillers for teens and tweens.
Teens and tweens may sometimes act like they’re too big and too cool for many holiday traditions, but they’ll still enjoy getting an Easter basket filled with goodies.
Why parents should keep up with Easter baskets during the teen years
Easter baskets are a fun tradition that people of all ages can enjoy. While it’s true that some teens may feel that they have outgrown the tradition, there are many reasons why they are not too big for Easter baskets:
Nostalgia: No matter what they say, many teens have great memories about Easter, which may include traditions like church, egg hunts, family dinners, etc. Continuing traditions can help big kids stay connected to those memories and increase the chance of them continuing these traditions with their own kids one day.
Keep it fun: Holiday traditions can stay fun and festive if they grow in lockstep with your kids. They may not like the same trinkets or toys, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fill their baskets with a few things they love.
Personal touch: Easter baskets can be a great way to show your teens that you see them and still know them well by personalizing their baskets.
Family time: Let’s be honest; sometimes it can be tough to grab your teens away from their friends or get them out of their rooms. Sometimes teens need a little push to join the holiday festivities. However you celebrate the holiday, baskets can be a great way to spend some time together.
Tradition: Continuing the tradition of Easter baskets can help teens feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves, and can create a sense of belonging. It also can be a great way to connect if you are going through a tough time with your teen.
