Non candy easter basket ideas


  • Something I have done for years is

    For my son who is in Cub Scouts he gets the next years book in his Easter basket and scout stuff.

    For my daughter in American Heritage Girls, she has gotten an AHG headband, back pack, etc.

    Things they will use in the activities they already do. the Easter Bunny is so smart, he’s like Santa, knows everything!!!

  • I went to Target today and found some great $1 items for my little guy’s Easter basket. He’s 19 months old so I had to be pickier. I found toddler dish & silverware sets, kids gardening tools, a slinky, some fun socks, bath toys, etc.

  • For my older son who is a nature/animal enthusiast I did bird feeders and a book about local birds one year and it was a huge hit. He is also a cubscout, so last year he got a real old school canteen, compass and emergency whistle. For his toddler broether, I’ve done bath tub toys one year and last year he got one of the little Bubble Bellies bubble blower things.

  • These are great ideas!
