35+ Candy-free Easter Basket Ideas
Do you ever feel like there is a constant flow of candy and sugar coming into your home? Holiday after holiday my kids are given candy. SO much that they never really eat it all, but they sure do try. I’ve really been trying to make a conscious effort to limit the sugar intake in our household. If you’re like me, it’s often hard to come up with non-candy ideas to give. The weather is finally improving, so there are lots of outdoor activities included in the list below. Last year we did cute little raincoats and rainboots for the toddlers. They LOVED it. It also happened to be raining on Easter, so they were able to go out and splash around in puddles with their new gear.
P.S. I scoured through Amazon to find CUTE and inexpensive ideas to make it easy for you. Free 2 day shipping is super convenient😉. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can get a 30-day FREE trial.
