easter basket

Don’t want your child to overload on candy this year on Easter? I understand.

A few sweets in the Easter basket are fine, but there are other items you can add that your child will enjoy too! Here are some ideas sent in by creative moms:

  • Sweet tasting chapstick
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Granola bars
  • Sunglasses
  • Sidewalk Chalk
  • Outdoor toys
  • Play-doh
  • Craft supplies
  • Crayons
  • Coloring books
  • Paintbrushes/outdoor paint with rocks to paint outside
  • Books
  • Bubbles
  • Bath toys
  • Seed starter kits
  • Gardening tools
  • Bunny themed toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Beach towel
  • Swim googles
  • Pajamas
  • Kite
  • Miniature dolls/figurines/stuffed animals

Your kids will have so much fun with the items you chose specifically for them, they probably won’t notice the basket only contains a few pieces of candy! Do you have other ideas of fillers for this years’s Easter basket?
