50 Non-Candy Ideas for Easter Baskets


Easter is coming up soon! I don’t know about you, but my kids get crazy if they have a lot of candy. They are allowed some, but definitely not a whole basket full. If they had a whole basket full, this Mommy would be a basketcase! I have asked some friends and polled some facebook groups for ideas for Easter baskets that aren’t candy.

I emailed this list to myself and it really helped me. And I did all my shopping at our dollar store. I was able to buy two baskets and fill them to overflowing for less than $40. Not bad considering some of those sparsely filled baskets in the stores are $15-20 each! Thanks for the help!
