So I’m married to a dentist, which means we really try to limit the amount of sugar we give to our kids. Let’s be honest, we’re reallllly bad at it. Okay, I’m bad at it. I give my kids far too much sugar, especially on the holidays. With Easter right around the corner, I love the idea of giving them a basket full of fun things instead of treats. I have a fun round up of candy-free Easter basket ideas to share with you today. If you’re looking for non-candy related goodies for an Easter basket, look no further! Here is my roundup of candy-free Easter basket ideas.
I’m going to first show you this outdoor fun Easter basket I put together for my daughter. I love that it is starting to warm up around Easter, it’s the perfect time to get out enjoy the beautiful weather. I decided to get her a bucket that she could continue to play with after Easter instead of a basket and filled that with fun things for her to play with or wear outside.
In the bucket I had:
- squirt gun
- golf club
- paddle ball
- jump rope
- water balloons
There are hundreds of different options for an outdoor Easter basket. Some of my other ideas were: sand toys, pin wheels, sidewalk chalk, pool toys, rockets, bug catchers, hula hoops or water toys. The sky is the limit!
I also filled some plastic Easter eggs with water balloons and bouncy balls.
Now here are some other ideas from some of my favorite bloggers:
