Skip the sugar this Easter with these 11 Non-Candy Easter basket ideas that are so fun your kids are sure not to miss the sweets!
As a mom there are two things high on my list of things to avoid: too much sugar, and anything that will end up cluttering my house.
My kids have energy enough that I do not need to go out of my way to give them more, or to deal with the ensuing crash after. I typically still buy a few mini milk chocolate eggs to hide around the house on Easter morning.
I also avoid buying them plastic junk as well. Inexpensive little toys might get a little excitement from them but I always find myself throwing them in the trash soon after.
With Easter coming up, I thought I’d share with you some fun gift ideas that kids will actually play with long after the holiday has passed.
When it comes to Easter we don’t go all out like we would for Christmas or Birthdays, I would rather spend my money on items I know they will really enjoy and get a lot of use out of rather than buying loads of candy.
I would just rather spend my money on items that will spark their imaginations and get them away from the screens than on candy and other junk.
Some of the items I have picked out are super trendy right now, and others are classic toys that are always going to be a hit with kids of all ages. All are Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas.
It’s a little funny though, I never thought my kids would be more excited about the first item on the list – the Little Tikes First Aid Kit.
Both my 7 and 9 year old girls absolutely can’t get enough play time with it. They are constantly bandaging up and caring for their bears with the kit. I was surprised that the included face mask even fits my 9 year old.
