Make some cute DIY May Day “baskets” for friends and family with this free printable and Dollar Tree May basket fillers!

Looking for some simple and frugal ideas for May Day baskets?

For May Day in 2020, we left little “baskets” (aka May Day cups) on people’s porches. 

We filled them with fun treats from the Dollar Tree and added in these free May Day printable cards with our names signed!

It was a fun way to bring joy during such an unusual time in history.

Now, these May Day treats are fun to bring in-person to friends and family. 

Check out the ideas below to use them as inspiration and then print the May Day cards at home. Cardstock works best but you can certainly use regular paper.

Dollar Tree May Day Basket Fillers

  1. Gum
  2. Smarties
  3. Bubbles
  4. Glow in the dark wands or bracelets
  5. Starburst
  6. Mints
  7. Suckers
  8. Stickers (cut up a sheet into several sections if you have small cups)
  9. Sidewalk chalk
  10. Popper toys
  11. Matchbox cars
  12. Mini Playdoh containers
  13. Mini figurines
  14. YoYo
  15. Foam balls or airplanes

You can see what we added below. We grabbed these colorful cups from Dollar Tree so we had to use smaller items for each cup. We also lined each cup with a napkin that had fruit on it–so cute!

If you did more of a regular size basket (you can get these super cute Popcorn baskets at the Dollar Tree!), you could fit larger items and snacks.

For some people, we made puppy chow and put a clear bag of it in a fruity cup to drop off if they didn’t have kids or had older kids who wouldn’t necessarily want toys.
