Non Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas
Board games: I like giving my daughter a larger gift that she can use over and over again; board games are great for that. I am a big fan of the Peaceable Kingdom board games.
They are fun and actually teach your child valuable lessons. Some of my favorites are: Hoot Owl Hoot!, Monkey Around, Friends and Neighbors, and Stack Up!
ABCMouse: You can actually purchase your child a subscription to ABCMouse. It is for kids ages 2-8 and my daughter loves playing all of the games,
I love that she is learning so much! You can get your first 30 days for free to see if your child will like it. Just put a little card in their basket telling them about their new subscription.
Personalized Books: I love all of the different personalized books from ISeeMe! I actually got my daughter the Princess storybook set.
It came with a book, coloring book and stickers all personalized just for her. She is going to love it! They have Easter themed books as well.
More Non Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas for Kids
Playfoam: If your child likes creating things, they will love Playfoam. Unlike other dough and clay, it isn’t messy but it still lets kids use their imaginations.
Fun socks: Get your toddler some fun socks with their favorite characters on them. You can get Frozen, Paw Patrol, Dory, Disney Princesses, and more.
Headphones: They have cute headphones for kids now. They can use them when they are playing video games or listening to music. Plus, it’s nice to have when you just can’t listen to “Let it Go” for the 300th time.
Umbrella: Kids love having their own personal umbrella. They have some cute ones to choose from. You can even open up the umbrella and use it as the actual Easter basket.
Alphabet Games: I love these AlphabetAcorns and so does my daughter. We play all kinds of games with them to help her learn the alphabet.
Tableware: If you have a picky eater, try getting them a fun plate or character tableware for them to eat off of. This has helped to get my daughter to eat more. I tell her that she has to eat all of her veggies so that she can see Elsa’s face.
Craft Boxes: Most toddlers love doing little crafts but it can be a pain getting all of the supplies together. I like getting craft subscription boxes for us to do together.
My favorites are Green Kid Crafts and Kiwi Crate. You can put a card in their basket letting them know that their box is coming.
Stuffed Bunny: It just isn’t Easter without a small stuffed bunny or chick in your Easter basket.
Chalk: I like giving my daughter sidewalk chalk. She loves playing in the driveway with it. It’s a great way to keep her busy while I get some gardening done.
Grow a Peep: I love this non candy Easter basket filler idea! If you are a Peep fan, you will like this one. You can get a Grow a Peep. Just place it in water and watch the bunny or chick hatch.
Bath Tub Fun: My little girl loves bath crayons. You can also get bath paints and bath tablets that turn the water colors. They are always a hit and make your child actually want to take a bath.
Egg Shakers: They have egg shakers at my Mommy and me class and the kids love them. These are the perfect size to put in an Easter basket.
Bubbles: What kid doesn’t love bubbles? I really like this Candylicious Bubble Machine for constant bubble fun. The bubbles even taste like cherry or grape! You can also get bubble wands to add to your basket.
Sticker Books: Sticker books are great, I really like the reusable ones. I take them with me to keep my little one occupied in the car or in a restaurant.
These are just a few non candy Easter basket filler ideas to get you thinking. I don’t really go all out for Easter. I usually get a board game and a few little things to fill her basket.
