It’s that time of year again, where the Easter Bunny hops from house to house filling baskets full of treats for our little ones. And as much as my toddler loves yummy, sweet treats, this mama prefers to not have a tiny human, on full sugar overload, running rampant around my house. So our Easter Bunny balances the sweet with fun little gifts that last a bit longer than jelly beans and chocolate bunnies. So here’s my list of 40 Easter basket fillers that aren’t candy:

Play Doh
Play Doh Accessories
Silly Straws
Sidewalk Chalk
Small Stuffed Toy
Bath Paint
Nail Polish
Bath Bomb
Coloring Book
Water Balloons
Temporary Tattoos
Silly Putty
Color Bath Dropz

Hair Clips
Bug Catcher
Toy Animals
Action Figures
Dress Up Jewelry
Jump Rope
Squirt Gun
Magnifying Glass
Grow Capsules
Children’s Garden Tools
Finger Flingers
Glow Sticks
Silly Putty
Bubble Bath
Flash Light

What do you put in your little one’s Easter baskets?

    Love it! The grandparents all bring the kids candy. I’ve been looking for some other ideas besides having tons of candy in my pantry.
