Candy-Free Easter Basket ideas

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.

Outdoor Fun Easter basket

In the bucket I had:

  • kite
  • balls
  • squirt gun
  • sundress
  • golf club
  • sunglasses
  • paddle ball
  • frisbee
  • bubbles
  • 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!
