Easter is hopping our way and for those who celebrate this important Christian day, we usually fill Easter baskets with colored eggs, chocolate bunnies, and other sweet treats. We start our day by dressing in our new Easter outfits and head to church then we head home to change so we can start hiding eggs for an Easter egg hunt for the kids. We then eat more ham than we should, for Easter lunch. Traditions are very important in my family.
As my grandkids get older they prefer toys that will last to chocolate that is eaten and forgotten, in their Easter baskets. And I have to admit, so do I. I still go through the tradition of coloring and decorating eggs but these days there are fewer chocolate threats and more healthy treats, toys, and even needed essentials such as socks and so forth.
One of the reasons I personally prefer stuffing the kid’s Easter baskets with toys is rainy days. Rainy days and kids stuck indoors can be challenging. Within the first hour of my trying to be creative with their time, they’re bored. Another reason is mealtime. I enjoy cooking and baking but it’s not always easy when I have kids pulling my attention in all directions.
With toys in mind, I want to tell you about a STEM company you might not be aware of, or maybe you are but you’ve not thought about the fact that their sets make great Easter gift ideas.
I discovered MAGFORMERS several years ago when I was looking for Stem Christmas gifts and they’ve become part of a new tradition in my home. Not only do these toys make kids use their imagination on many different levels but they stick together with magnets. Cleaning up has never been easier. They all cling together.
I’ve been purchasing different sets for the kids for each holiday, sometimes they get separate sets and sometimes they get one big set. For Easter this year I decided on the MAGFORMERS Fantasy Land set. It’s for kids over 3 years of age and has 126 pieces to keep them entertained for hours while using their hands and their imagination to create so many different fantasy structures.
This set comes with a booklet with step-by-step pictures to help them put together suggested items like a Ferris wheel. Of course, they can create anything they can dream up as well.

Building sets are so much fun! I love this Magformers set.
My grandsons would love these! What a great idea for an Easter Gift. I love getting them things that can not only entertain them but they will use their little minds to get creative making things!
