Today I was researching Easter Basket Ideas for my kids and thought I would put together a list to share of Easter Basket Gifts that promote fine motor skills. Each of these ideas are first and foremost FUN, but why not encourage fine motor practice while you're at it?! They pair great with many of these Free Easter Coloring Pages and Printables. I'm updating this post for 2018 as some of the links were out of date.

Every year for all the various holidays, my kids end up with candy and plastic tchotchke type stuff that gets tossed in a drawer and forgotten.

I can't stop other people from giving out that stuff, and my kids love getting it, but I always try to ALSO include some fun items that are developmental in SOME way. Books, puzzles, jump ropes. You get the idea- things that they give them more than a sugar high.
