A few years ago, I started moving away from filling my children’s baskets with lots of Easter candy to filling them with healthier candy choices and fun items. I like to do spring and summer-related items though indoor toys are also a great option. I find these items at stores like 5 Below, Target’s Dollar Bins, and Michael’s Craft Store Dollar Bins. The Dollar Store has some cute stuff in the Easter section though I find their items to be less sturdy.
- small boxed Lego sets
- Lego figures
- K’Nex sets
- Playmobil figures
- gardening gloves
- small spray bottles
- art supplies – pad of paper, colored pencils, watercolor set, crayons
- shovel and pail
- Easter-themed pencils
For more ideas, check out the 101 Non-Candy Easter Basket Goodies list at Cuppa, Cuppa, Cuppa, a new blog I found just last week.
