My mom always was great about making my Easter basket fun and exciting. It was tradition in our house that we would get our first Spring outfit, I looked forward to it every year and couldn’t wait to see what the Easter bunny had brought me. Maybe it’s because I don’t have a sweet tooth, but candy never stuck out in my mind when it comes to Easter. Perhaps there were some in our Easter eggs?
Anyways, when it comes to putting together an Easter basket for kids I tend to like ones that focus on items that they can use and enjoy. These types of gifts tend to last longer, are thoughtful, and create memories. Stuck on what to get? Here are 10 non-candy Easter basket ideas, sure to make any kid hop with Easter hoppiness.
