Easter is fast approaching! Here’s some candy-free Easter basket ideas for the Easter bunny to consider giving your little one.
Are you following our Easter for Kids and Family Pinterest board?
Easter is not a holiday where we focus mainly on gifts, but it’s always nice for the kids to find a few fun treats in their Easter baskets. I always suggest to the Easter bunny that he try to limit the candy and give a couple quality items, rather than lots of little things the kids will lose interest in after the newness wears off.
Here are a few suggestions I gave him that I thought I’d pass on to you! (This post contains affiliate links.)
I’d like to thank to Lego for providing us with products to review and include in this guide! Lucy and Theo had a great time trying them out, and we’re happy to share our honest opinion with all of you.

I also wanted to share with you our favorite Easter baskets: bolga baskets! They come in a variety of sizes and colors and have lasted us years. Not only do we use them as Easter baskets, but we also take them to the farmers market to carry our produce. They’re also often used to store toys and activities in throughout the year. (We bought ours from a local vendor, but here’s an example of a medium bolga basket on Amazon.)
