What Are You Putting in Your Kids Easter Baskets? (And Some Great Candy-Free Ideas!)

I asked this question on Facebook and had such inspiring responses that Im really excited about making up an Easter basket for Emma now. 🙂 Why not try something different this year and fill the baskets with something that will last and will get kids excited about getting outside? Its SPRING, that means warmer weather and sunshine and being able to play in the dirt again! 🙂

So here are some of the AWESOME suggestions from my amazing readers:

Butterfly/Bug Net
Plant Seeds
Gardening Gloves
Hot Wheels
Moon Sand
Sidewalk Chalk
Puzzles or Mini Games
Silly Putty

Any of these things would make for a great Easter basket, dont you agree?

To make your Easter different, you can also:

Make your own Easter-themed cookies or snacks
Print out Easter coloring pages for your little ones
Make some Easter crafts

A REALLY great resource for Easter printables, crafts, recipes, and more can be found here at Tip Junkies Easter Goodies Page!

Or you can do the traditional dying and decorating of your own hard-boiled eggs and then hiding them. 🙂

What are YOU planning on doing for Easter?

Im thinking about getting one of these little fellas for our basket anyone know where I can find one?
