Non-Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas
With Easter just around the bend, I wanted to share with you some Non-Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas that your kids will love. I’m sure you can find a few favorites in the list (or at least I hope so!)
Our kids look forward to finding their Easter Baskets hidden away every year. The Easter Bunny loves to hide them… in the closet, behind a chair, under a bed, or just about anywhere.
My kids have such a blast looking for their baskets, just as my siblings did when we were little!
Every though my kids know that the celebration of Easter is not about the Easter Bunny, but about Christ dying on the cross for our sins.
So that we may place all our hope & faith in him. It is still a lot of fun to incorporate a tradition that I have done since I was little.
Candy always seems like the very first idea when it comes to creating a fun Easter Basket. But there are so many other great Non-Candy Easter Basket Filler Ideas.
My goal here is to share some ideas that are more creative than candy alone. I want to help spur on some fun, engaging, enjoyable alternatives to candy so that you can add them to whichever other items you and your family choose to include in Easter baskets.
