Candy-Free Easter Basket Ideas

Back in February, I wrote a post called Candy-Free Valentine’s Gift Ideas For Kids and it was a huge hit.  I’m really trying to cut back on my daughter’s sugar intake, but still wanted to give her a basket of small presents for Valentine’s Day, like my mom did for me as a child.  With Easter coming up, I thought it might be fun to do a Candy-Free Easter Basket post.

Here’s what’s inside my 2.5 year old’s Easter Basket this year:


Easter Book

I chose The Berenstain Bears and the Easter Story for Charlotte.  I love the Berenstain Bears books and I wanted to give her a book that wasn’t focused on candy and the Easter bunny.  It was $2.76 shipped, and as a bonus, it came with stickers!


Melissa & Doug Binoculars

Charlotte loves nature, birds and bugs ever since she started watching Rachel and the Treeschoolers episodes (I highly recommend them! – Charlotte is 2.5 and walks around singing about photosynthesis!).  So when I found these Melissa & Doug Bixie Butterfly Binoculars, I thought they’d be perfect for her outdoor exploring.  If these are too girly, don’t worry, they have these Happy Giddy Binoculars

Slippers

I just happened to find these brand new bunny slippers in the right size on ThredUP a couple months ago and knew they’d be perfect for her Easter Basket, so I snatched them up.  You could do any slippers or even socks!


Bumble Bee Bath Mitt

Charlotte still loves bath time so much, so I found this Bumble Bee Bath Mitt


HonestBubbleBath-2

Bubble Bath

We love the Honest Company Bubble Bath, but you could use your favorite brand.  Or you could do other bath items, like bath crayons or toys, or a special hooded towel.

Other Candy-Free Ideas:

– Experiences, like a trip to the zoo or children’s museum

– Coloring books, crayons or other art supplies

– Stickers! 🙂

– Toy cars, trucks, airplanes, etc.
