25 Fun Things to Put in Baby’s Easter Basket (That Aren’t Candy!)

If your house is like mine, by the time Easter morning rolls around, the last thing you want is more candy.

I love finding fun things that will delight my girls and also not leave them completely hopped up on sugar. The year that my older daughter was almost two, she ate dozens of jelly beans and then ran in circles around our kitchen island for nearly 20 minutes. Since then, we’ve tried to keep the candy to a minimum.

Here are 25 ideas of baby or toddler-friendly items to fill up that Easter basket or plastic Easter eggs.

  1. Bouncy balls
  2. Coloring book
  3. Shoes
  4. Bath toys
  5. Books
  6. Puzzle
  7. Plush toy
  8. Sippy cup
  9. Board books
  10. Music
  11. Mini scrapbook of family members
  12. Pacifier
