50 Easter Basket Ideas for Two Year Olds

Last year, I wrote a post with 50 Easter basket ideas for one-year-olds.  Lucia is now two and while most of the ideas from last year would still work for her, I thought it would be fun to come up with 50 completely different ideas for her age group.  (And then I need to get shopping because I only have a few items so far!)  If these aren't enough for you, check out last year's post too!
1. summer pajamas
3. play food (felt, wooden, plastic)
4. flashcards (numbers, letters, animals, etc.)
5. dancing ribbon rings (DIY here)
6. Little People (I love these superheroes) or other figurines
8. toddler-sized apron
9. cookie cutters, measuring cups, mixing bowls
10. cookie/muffin/brownie mix to make with mom and dad
