Sugar Free Easter Baskets

By Leslie Moore

Most (all) kids love candy, but moms and grand moms know too much is never a good thing! Here are a few fun ideas to fill Easter baskets that don’t involve a sugar rush.

Sunglasses – everyone needs a pair

A personal water bottle –all kids love having their own

Playing Cards – Go Fish or Old Maid are fun, too!

Potting soil, seeds and a pretty pot –the kids will have hours of fun watching their plant grow!

A new book- always a great gift

New swimsuits are perfect, especially in our area

A beach towel

Sand toys

Sun hats

Play dough

Flashlight (trust me your kids will love it!)

Bubble bath and bath crayons

Fancy edged scissors –and some colored paper for creating

Jump ropes or Frisbees

A brand new box of crayons– spring for the big box

Colored pencils and/or markers


New toothbrushes and flavored toothpaste

Trail mix

Remember how much fun you had with kaleidoscopes?

A box of band aids, preferably the colorful ones

A fishing pole and the promise of lessons

A note from the Easter bunny

Temporary tattoos

New flip flops- they look so cute in the basket


Bouncy balls

Sidewalk chalk
