Needless to say, Easter will look much different this year thanks to Covid19. Since we can’t get dressed up and go to church, have a community egg hunt or eat brunch with our extended family, I thought of some ways to shop for easter as well as ideas to make this Easter intentional and memorable regardless of the situation we are faced with right now.

Running to the store and grabbing all of the “things” is not as easy as it was a few weeks ago. This year we have to get creative and shop online. I can say confidently that Amazon is our best option when it comes to having everything in one place.

In this guide by Optimized Life, we will give you the best Easter ideas you can find on Amazon.

Let’s start off with Easter baskets and gifts. All of the ideas below will come from Amazon since it is one of the only ways to shop right now. I have also included a link so you can order anything you need.

First, you have to have a basket!

Eggs to hid (that’s not candy)

Then, you need to have eggs to put in it!

These glow in the dark eggs are a great idea if you have older kids or if you want to do something a little different this year. You can add whatever you want to them but if they are older (and anything like my kids), I’m sure candy and money would be just fine.

Or you can purchase a big pack of plastic eggs, fill them with toys, candy and quarters and hide them all around your yard.

Squishy Eggs! These are so fun and such a popular toy. Just hide these as they are and your kids will be so happy to find them.

I know I know, SLIME! You either hate it or you don’t mind it. No matter how we feel about this trend that doesn’t seem to ever go away, kids would love to find them in their egg hunt or basket.

The next few are great for egg hunts and also something they can sit and have hours of imagination play after.

This DIY egg kit is a fun activity kids can do and then they can be added to the egg hunt.

I liked this candy kit. It might be fun to have kids make their own Easter candy this year as a way to give them a fun activity to do.
