Spring is the perfect time to get outdoors and explore nature. Little children love, love, love to learn about the world they live in. They are so curious and fascinated by little critters, flowers, and in general by nature. This Easter, why not encourage their curiosity with some amazing nature-themed Easter basket ideas.

Easter Basket Ideas for the Nature Lover

Here is a look at our favorite nature items for kids! I do want to say that I am not suggesting you need to purchase all of these items. In my home, we will choose only 2-3 because we like to keep things minimal. However, these are just some materials that we really love and own already, or ones that we are excited to purchase in the near future.

When it comes to gifts, we do like to keep things small, but this is your choice based on what works for your family!
