25 Non-Candy Ideas for Easter Baskets and Eggs

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 my older daughter was almost two, she ate dozens of jelly beans and then ran in circles around our kitchen island for nearly twenty 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.
