The fun around Easter doesn’t have to stop once your kids reach a certain age. I have a 9-year-old daughter who still loves to receive gifts, loves surprises, and overall loves to feel special. These are the reasons why I create an Easter Basket filled with things she loves and has an interest in. These basket fillers can include books she’s asked for, games, crafts, surprise toys, and a few pieces of candy. Since she’s entering the tween phase she’s also shown interest in bath and body products like masks, body scrubs, and lotions.
Based on what my 9-year-old likes I’ve curated this list of fun things to stuff in a 9-year-old girl’s Easter Basket.
1. Playful Surprise Eggs
Surprise collectible toys have come a long way. Now, kids who love candy, surprise toys and slime can now enjoy a fun edible slime surprise. This year, parents – or the Easter Bunny – can fill Easter Baskets with a Foodie Surprise Candy Slime Egg and a Foodie Surprise Yolkies.
Foodie Surprise Candy Slime Egg
On Easter morning, your kid(s) will enjoy opening up the egg to discover which of the six (6) edible candy slime and fun mix-ins they received! Each surprise egg comes with flavored slime and candy mix-ins. Slime flavors include Yellow Orange, Pink Cotton, Red Strawberry, Green Apple, Purple Blueberry and Clear Fruitty. Mix-ins include edible glitter, star candy, crunchy candy and more.
Cost: $2.99. Available at Amazon
Foodie Surprise Yolkies
Foodie Surprise Yolkies is the perfect addition to a 9-year-old’s Easter Basket. This candy slime mimics a raw egg with clear slime as the egg whites and a yellow gummy candy egg yolk. When kids unscrew the bottom compartment of the egg, they’ll reveal their Yolkie collectible toy which comes in a food-themed costume that is interchangeable with the other Yolkie characters.
Cost: $4.99. Available at Amazon and Target.
2. Imaginative Play with Hopscotch Rabbit & Friends
My 9-year-old girl still plays with dolls. She loves imaginative play, especially creating different scenes for her dolls and toys. One of her favorite lines of toys includes Calico Critters. They include a line of detailed animal figurines that live like humans with families, jobs, and hobbies. Just in time for Easter, there are new additions to the Calico Village. My daughter will be excited to see Hopscotch Rabbit Twins ($9.99), Marshmallow Mouse Triplets ($6.88) and the Red Roof Cozy Cottage ($23.99) on Easter Sunday Morning. These characters can be interchanged through each Calico Village building to create a personalized village scene.
3. Fun Activity Kits
These days since our kids are out of school and spending more time on their laptops and tablets getting schoolwork completed, it is important for kids to enjoy fun non-digital activities. Activity kits like the Aquabeads Trolls World Tour Character Set allow kids to use a template to create their favorite Trolls World Tour characters with fun colorful beads.
Cost: $12.99. Available at Target.com.
4. Sweet Treat Slime
No matter the age, most girls are into making and playing with slime. I myself enjoy playing with slime because I find it relaxing. My 9-year-old also loves slime, especially slime with wacky textures, fun colors and molds like the SLIMYGLOOP SLIMYSAND Sweet Treats & Mystical Themed Rollers. It comes with 2 colors of slime and 4 dessert-shaped molds.
Cost: $7.99. Available on Amazon.com*, Hobby Lobby, and Indigo

5. Relax & Pamper
Nine-year-old girls are dealing with a lot. They are learning to deal with their emotions, hormones, and changes with their bodies. School isn’t easy either. It is important for them, especially now when our kid’s daily routines have drastically changed, they need to relax and make time for themselves. This year, especially since my daughter loves to use scrubs, masks, and other pampering bath and body products, I thought it would be great to add animal face sheet masks and a few other items like a bath soak to her Easter Basket.
