As a child of the 80s, I think that decade was the best! Everything was so different: the hair, the clothes, the music, the toys, the holidays! I loved searching through my Easter basket when I was a kid. It was a very bright plastic basket (think hot pink and metallic grass), nothing like the ones kids today have. All the candy was my favorite part, but I loved the small toys and trinkets as well. Retro 80s toys and candies are becoming popular with kids today, so why not try to recreate an Easter Basket for your kids that mirrors your own childhood?
Since it is Family Favorites Friday here on the blog, I have created a list of my favorite Retro 80s Easter Basket ideas. Kids and parents are both going to love them!
Retro 80s Easter Basket Ideas & Flashbacks
-Did you ever watch any of these Forgotten Easter Specials from Your Childhood? My favorite was Family Circus Easter too bad its only available on VHS!
-I bet you forgot about B’loonies!
-I can’t believe they still make these Clip Charm Necklaces! I had so many charms as a kid!
-You could read the kids a Little Golden Book. I had this Easter.
-Give the kids some Bicycle Wheel Spoke Beads like the ones you used to have.
-Did you ever receive Sugar Eggs with a Bunny Inside?
–Multi-Point Pencils are always fun!
-If you can find any of these retro Trading cards, the kids would probably get a kick out of them!
-Toss around a Koosh Ball with the kids!
-Who remembers Mad Libs? Check out this Easter edition!

I hope my list has brought back memories from your childhood and that you have found a way to share the past with your kids. Children of today would love to receive an Easter Basket full of items from the 80s! Why not give one retro item a year and start a new family tradition?
