The sun has been shining, the birds have been chirping and I’m quite happy to say its finally starting to warm up! And although we are never guaranteed anything as far as the weather goes here in Ohio, I’m hoping that means we will have a warm Easter. I can’t believe how fast its coming though! Even with it being late this year, its somehow crept up on me. And that means it’s time to start thinking about Easter plans, Easter dinner, outfits, decorating eggs and of course, Easter baskets. So we just had to pull together a Disney Easter Basket with Tsum Tsums to make the holiday a little more fun!

Making Easter Special
Whether you’re hiding eggs in the backyard for the kids, or making an extra special brunch with mimosas for the grown ups, we love that Easter gives us a reason to leave the winter months behind and jump into spring. While there are TONS of ways to make Easter extra special, nothing is as fun as pulling together the treats and gifts for an Easter basket. Since this is usually the first time since Christmas that both both kids and grown ups alike get back into the spirit of the season of giving, we, as usual, go crazy with the planning, dinner, crafts and gifts. And we love nothing more than designing our plans around a theme. So this year we’re putting together a basket on the Disney Easter Basket Tsum Tsum theme.
Designing a Disney Easter Basket with Tsum Tsums
I usually like to do a theme for Easter baskets, but that’s just because I really love the planning and designing part of any gift! I feel like presentation is part of the gift itself and having a nice theme really holds it altogether, don’t you? It took me a while to decide because there are so many great Disney themes going on right now, but eventually I decided this year it would be fun to do a Tsum Tsum Easter basket this year. Who doesn’t love Tsum Tsums?! Seriously, how cute are those things?! So, out on a hunt we went. Luckily, we found that Tsum Tsum merch is pretty easy to find if you know where to look.If you’re in need of ideas for a Tsum Tsum Easter basket, or just want to add a little Tsum Tsum magic to an idea of your own, here are some of the fun things we found for Easter baskets this year!
Make an Easter Basket Disney Fabric Liner
First things first. Grab an Easter Basket. If you’re like us, chances are you some heirloom Easter baskets in the family that are simply perfect for this craft. But, if you don’t want to modify a classic, you can grab a basic Easter basket anywhere. We started with a plain $1.50 basket from Target and made a liner. I am not 100% confident I would be able to give the best tutorial for a liner, so we recommend this Easter Basket Fabric Liner Tutorial as it worked out well.
Add Disney Activities and Games
I think everyone is loving the grown up coloring books, and most of them are pretty appropriate for bigger little kids too. G is at that Tween stage and I know she loves art in general, so I was pretty excited to find this coloring book on Amazon! So cute and the images aren’t that complicated so it definitely works for kids who are maybe a little too “big” for a traditional coloring book but still like to color.
Add Disney Easter Basket Tsum Tsum Merchandise
Stationery, Stamps, Plushies, LipSmackers, Patches and more all make great additions to any Easter Basket. Plus a great water bottle is a necessity for the Parks, and obviously everyday life as well, so I was super excited to find this one at the Disney Store. Its super cute and it was only $11.00 which I thought was pretty good for a super cute stainless steel water bottle. shopDisney.com also has lots of other great Disney merch available in store and online but we actually did most of our shopping at Target! I love that Target now carries Tsum Tsums since not everyone has a Disney Store close by and that’s actually where we were able to find these adorable Easter Tsums! I love that they’re dressed up for Easter, so adorable!
Speaking of Target, have you ever checked their dollar section at the front of the store for Disney merch? You can find all sorts of surprising and budget-friendly goodies for your Easter Basket. Be sure to scour the toy department for stickers, plushies, toys and games, you can head to the clothing department for jewelry, patches and socks. The beauty department will have fun LipSmackers and kid-friendly goodies.
Add Easter Candy and Treats
No Easter basket is complete without a few Easter eggs! And chocolate. Gotta have chocolate. We picked up these Lindt bunnies, because well, who doesn’t love Lindt!? And they’re small enough that they could fit inside the eggs we picked up at the Dollar Store. To add a little more fun to our Easter eggs, we also grabbed a pack of pastel glitter Tsum Tsums at Target to hide inside along with the chocolate. They fit perfectly and would make really fun stuffers for a Disney themed Easter egg hunt.
Complete your Disney Easter Basket
And this is what the finished product looks like! Not bad for a bunch of low cost items all thrown together. We had a ton of fun creating this Easter basket and hope this gives you some Easter basket inspiration! And remember you can do any Easter Basket on a Disney theme! Just pick one and get started!
