It’s almost time for Easter, and that means we’re on the hunt for fun items for Easter baskets.
I’m trying to stay away from candy this year – since it makes my children a little crazy. Here are my best ideas for non-candy Easter basket fillers.
1. Sandals and other Summer Gear
How about an Easter movie for kids? You could try An Easter Carol on for size.
In my house, we can never have too many craft supplies. After you get home from Mass on Easter morning, your children can work on this Easter Egg sticker craft while you put the finishing touches on dinner.
How about an Easter Puzzle? You could even create more fun by opening the box, and putting each piece in a jumbo egg!
Let your children get outside and enjoy the warm (hopefully) Easter morning with some bubbles. This Melissa and Doug butterfly set is on my daughter’s wish list!
While the grownups are cleaning up the kitchen after Easter dinner, let the children play outside. Any little boy would love to find a dinosaur kite in their basket! They’ll be burning off energy, instead of eating chocolate!
9. Coloring Books and Crayons
10. Toothbrushes, Toothpaste and Fun Floss
Try as you may, but it’s likely that your children will get some sort of candy for Easter. Minimize the dental damage and make brushing their teeth fun with new toothbrushes and toothpaste. My boys especially love these fun flossers.
What are you putting in your children’s Easter baskets? Make sure to leave a comment and share your thoughts.
