Easter Basket Ideas: 20 Healthier Easter Basket Fillers for Kids

Looking for Easter basket fillers that won't put your kids on an all-day sugar high? Try filling baskets with stuff besides candy! Here are some ideas:

  • bubbles
  • bunny ears
  • Easter movies
  • coloring books
  • sidewalk chalk
  • markers
  • craft dough
  • stickers
  • stamp pads
  • temporary tattoos 
  • a new T-shirt
  • stuffed animals
  • picture or chapter books
  • "trinket" boxes 
  • picture frames 

All of these make lasting gifts for kids of all ages. For edibles, consider:

  • kid-friendly protein bars
  • mini pretzels
  • whole fruits 
  • sugar-free candies
