Easter is one of those holidays that is huge on history and tradition, and in our house, we always look forward to the Easter basket! My daughter loves the Easter Bunny and fondly remembers egg hunts from years past.
A Sweet Candyless Easter Basket
And let’s not forget the Easter basket itself—just like Halloween, it’s a time where kids can amass a huge stockpile of candy (if we’re not too careful). Last year I went with organic candy, which was definitely a step in the right direction. But my kids just finished their candy from Halloween and I wasn’t fond of the idea of giving them yet another pile of candy.
So, this year, I decided to fill their baskets with other kinds of treats instead!
In this basket, you’ll find toys for an older child, a puzzle, a wind-up toy and a few smaller items like a light-up ring and stamps.
The next basket is catered towards a younger child with egg-shaped chalk, a sound maker and a wooden snake.
Easter isn’t the same without the Easter egg hunt! Instead of sugary candy, these fluffy and savory cheese “Bunny Tails” make for a tasty snack.
