Non-Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas

Non-Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas

Here is a great list of non-candy Easter Basket filler ideas for your kiddos. If you are anything like our family, my kids still have candy from  Valentine’s Day that hasn’t been eaten – and I don’t want to get them an Easter Basket full of MORE candy!!!! (Plus, I’m sure the grandparents will give them plenty of candy anyway.) Here are some ideas to help them have fun experiences playing or exploring that can be more valuable to their childhood development, rather than just more chocolate. 😉

Easter Basket Ideas for Boys or Girls:

Get a STEAM learning box from Kiwi Co!  My kids got some of these for Christmas last year and LOVED them – check out my review on Facebook of these boxes!

Kids Night In – from Night In Boxes! – these are perfect activity boxes filled with fun to do with your kids either on a rainy day, while they are with the grandparents or a babysitter!

Here is what one customer said:

“Coming from a former teacher’s perspective, this kit gets my “teacher approved” stamp. The kit includes a pamphlet filled with activities to do with your child! Everything you need is right in the box! There are art activities, a music and movement activity, a few food activities, a read aloud suggestion to match the theme of the box, and the list goes on. I especially love how the read aloud section comes with specific age appropriate leveled questions to ask your child before and after reading. This makes it so easy for parents to spend quality time with their child without having to plan what to do! Even better, all of the materials were right in the box! So easy!”
