Are you shopping for Easter? If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for some great non-candy Easter basket and egg filler ideas. I share 19 candy-free Easter items I love to stuff in their Easter baskets.
Is it just me, or is Easter one of the largest candy-giving holidays of the year? I sure feel like we tend to receive way too much candy at Easter. As a mom trying to raise my kids with balance, I’ve come to really dislike Easter gift baskets and bags.
Additionally, with the ever-increasing food allergies, I don’t like adding to the worries of other parents. So, instead of attributing to the mass amounts of candy at Easter, I’ve been more inventive about finding non-candy Easter basket and egg stuffers.
Non-candy Easter Egg Stuffers
Easter Craft Chicks
Every year, we get a small package of little chicks like these! My daughter loves them, though I’m not sure why! They don’t do anything. In fact, as I sit here typing about these, my daughter is sitting beside me giggling about them. However, they are perfect for stuffing in plastic Easter eggs. Whatever you have leftover, or feel like using after Easter, can be used for adorable Easter crafts and activities. We always pick ours up at Michael’s, but I like the idea of this much larger package of chicks at Amazon.
What kid doesn’t like stickers? With this pack of 500 Easter stickers, you can stuff your kids’ eggs, and have more than enough for school, church, and family Easter Egg stuffing.
Don’t forget foam stickers, you know, because they’re cooler!
I put these Easter Stamps in some of our eggs last year and they fit nicely! Of course, any that I had leftover, not allotted to Easter Egg Hunts, I tossed into my daughter’s Easter basket.
Water Growing Toys
What kid doesn’t love those little squishy toys that you place in a glass and watch grow?
For the girls, there are adorable water-growing unicorns.
Or try out the water-growing sea creatures.
Non-candy Easter Basket Stuffers
