Easter Baskets Your Kids Will Love
A fishy Easter basket? Katrina, what in the world are you talking about? Let me explain. With the hopes of creating new memories, having fun with my kids, and eating a little less candy this year, the idea of giving our kids Fishy Easter Baskets was born!
Unique Easter baskets are fun and such a great way to enjoy the holiday in a new way. Read on, I’ll explain just how I came up with the idea and how you can do it too!
Fishbowls For Baskets?
Fish bowls for Easter baskets? What?! Yes! Now, I like to consider myself pretty creative, but this idea was not all my own.
All three of my kids were unexpectedly out of school one day. As they sat around trying to decide what to do for the day, they all started talking about a new pet – a Betta fish. The three of them pleaded with me to go to PetSmart and take a look at the fish and I’m always up for an adventure, so off we went.
We perused the fish isle, we oohed and ahhhed over all the beautiful Betta fish. Next, we started pricing out just how much this whole fishy idea would cost each of them.
They debated and bargained with each other and ultimately we left the store with no fish and lots of hopes of getting one soon. As the day wore on, my kids had decided they would wait to see what the Easter Bunny brought them before using all their money for a fish and fishy supplies.
What Would The Easter Bunny Bring?
I kept hearing my youngest son talking to himself. Which I later learned, he was talking to the Easter Bunny, hoping that she would bring him a fish for Easter. Which got me thinking, well, why not get them fish this year?!
Later that evening, my husband and I made a quick trip to Walmart and decided the Easter Bunny would bring our kids a fishbowl and some necessary supplies and they each could pick out and purchase their own fish.
See what I mean? A great idea! Fishy Easter baskets your kids will love!

How You Can Make Your Own Fishy Easter Basket:
- Fish Bowls – Walmart $6.97
- Gravel – Walmart $2.97-4.97
- Betta Fish Food – Walmart $2.12
- Water Conditioner – Walmart $3.19
- Fish Net – Walmart – $1.97
- Plastic Easter Eggs – I already had these from previous years – but Walmart also had them as cheap as $0.98/12pk
- Starburst Jellybeans – Walmart $1.98 and I found a peelie coupon for $1/off 2 bags, so I picked up 2 bags
- Average Price Per Fishy Basket: approximately $14
I realize $14 is a lot for an Easter basket, usually I like to keep each basket and all it’s contents below $5 each, especially when you are buying them for multiple kids in your household.
Splurge When You Can
This year was a little different for us, with a lot of things going on that we all needed an extra pick me up, so I felt the extra money on a long-lasting, unique, and super fun Easter basket your kids will love was well worth it! I don’t splurge often, but when I can and when I know the kids will love it, I will!
Hopefully I’ve given you an idea for an Easter Basket that your kids will enjoy as well! Or, maybe this fishy idea has inspired a different unique idea for you!
