Rain book Easter basket?  YES…and they turned out so adorable. This year I decided to skip a traditional Easter basket and go with this super easy DIY Rain Boot Easter Basket.  My kid loved the Easter basket and also loves that she has new yellow rain boots to enjoy all spring.

DIY Rain Book Easter Baskets for Kids

Not only was this Easter basket easy to make, it was also really inexpensive!I love that instead of giving kids a basket that they will only use once a year I can gift something that they can use over and over again. 

The first year I made these rain boot baskets, it was theory.  But after doing this a few years in a row, it is one of my favorite Easter ideas because the “basket” is used year round.

Supplies Needed for Rain Boot Easter Baskets

1. Best Rain Boots

I ordered a pair of rain boots for $10 on Amazon.  They worked really well for us.  I did notice that there are a lot of really cute character and themed rain boot options.  Here are a few of my favorites (they generally run a little more than the regular rain boots I purchased):

2. Easter Grass

My next purchase was some Easter grass to go inside of the rain boots. I chose green because it went really well with the bright yellow of the traditional rain boot style, but there are so many colors to choose from!

3. Easter Basket Goodies

After that, it’s all about what you are going to stuff inside of the boots for an Easter morning surprise. We LOVE SweeTARTS at our house so we were sure to include the SweeTARTS Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies Topper.

Not only are they Easter themed, but they fit perfectly down inside of the rain boots and are a delicious mom approved treat since they are free of artificial flavors!

4. Kids Easter Treat

We usually always include one “big” candy box to give to each child in the family so this year we included with SweeTARTS Jelly Beans Bunny Shaped Box. The second best part of the bunny shaped box is that the packaging is so cute that we didn’t need to dress it up with anything to make the gift cute!

The first best part of it was… SweeTARTS + jelly beans. Can you think of a better candy combo that that!? In all seriousness, we had never tried the SweeTARTS jelly beans and we were super impressed with them.

Instructions to Make Rain Boot Easter Baskets

Step 1

To make these, I used 2 bags of Easter grass and stuffed them down into the boots making sure to leave just enough space to insert the SweeTARTS Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies Toppers.

Step 2

Then, I opened one of  Jelly Beans Bunny Shaped Boxes and scattered some of the jelly beans across the top of the Easter grass inside of the boot. I think I’ll even stuff some Easter eggs full of the jelly beans too!
