Easter baskets don’t have to be full of chocolate and peeps. Here are some great ideas that will fill your Easter basket without all the extra fat and sugar. And, if those ideas aren’t enough, we’ve collaborated with some talented bloggers to bring some wonderful healthy Easter treats recipes to give you some delicious treat ideas.
What child doesn’t love to blow bubbles? Grab a couple of bottles of bubbles for this year’s Easter basket. The kids will have a blast with them and with a little luck it will be warm enough outside to keep them busy and running around chasing bubbles for quite some time.
Another fun treat is sidewalk chalk. This is the perfect time to draw on the sidewalk with the weather warming up. Plus we get enough rain in the spring that your driveway or sidewalk won’t be decorated for too long.
Lots of kids are crazy about playing with play dough. While playing they practice creativity and gain small muscle coordination. Include some play dough toys like cookie cutters and play mat to give them plenty of inspiration.
Fun Easter Toys & Games
You can also pick up some very inexpensive toys and games. Easter-themed coloring books to kites in there make classic Easter basket gifts. A stuffed bunny or a fun game is always nice to give, too.
Of course, every child should have some special Healthy Easter treats in their basket as well. Along with the obligatory chocolate bunny, include some healthier treats.
