Easter is a fun time of year and while my kids are excited about the egg hunt we have every year I get excited about using their Easter baskets as an opportunity to inject more toys and materials that promote literacy into our home. Here are 10 fun and inexpensive Easter basket fillers that help develop your child's literacy skills. Some items make reading fun and others will inspire your child to tell stories and write!
2. Paperback books
4. Fun pens and pencils
6. Mad libs
7. Letter magnets
8. Letter stamps
9. Blank note cards and envelopes
10. Play dough
