Non-Candy Easter Egg Filler Ideas

I can still remember the excitement my brother and I had every year over our Easter baskets.

We would wake up on Easter Sunday to find a basket filled with chocolate, small toys, and one year we each got our own personal basket of fresh strawberries! My mom was always so creative at coming up with wonderful Easter ideas for our baskets!

After having my own kids, I looked forward to passing on the Easter morning tradition with them.

But as our kids have gotten older, it’s become a bit more of a challenge to find items appropriate for big kids.

However, coming up with fun Easter egg stuffers is a challenge I love! It’s truly enjoyable finding special fun ideas for gifts with which to bless our kids.

What Can You Put in Easter Baskets Besides Candy?

When filling our kids’ Easter baskets, I try to avoid focusing too heavily on candy. And when we do add candy, we try to find dye-free or naturally-sweetened treats.

If you’re like me and want to avoid too much candy, you’ll love this list.

I’ve searched around and found these great ideas for filling your kids’ baskets and plastic eggs with things other than sweet treats.

Here are some of the very best non-candy egg and Easter basket ideas that will help you create a basket your kids will love!

  1. What good ideas! I love candy, but filling baskets with candy can easily become too much. Thanks for so many ideas of other great ways to provide Easter treats.

    Thanks so much for joining the Grace at Home party at Imparting Grace. I’m featuring you this week!

  2. Yes, I need this post in my life. We have a huge bag of candy that we keep hidden away with all the halloween, easter, christmas, etc candy. I’m not saying everything in there is “in date,” but it keeps my kids from eating a lot of candy at once. An Easter basket without candy is what we plan for this year! Thanks for sharing.

  3. My boys are all tweens and teens so I found it particularly hard to fill their baskets this year; I finally decided to fill them with things I’d most likely have to buy them anyway like bathing suits, flip flops, new swim goggles, and water bottles.

    1. Great idea! Several years ago we got each child their own colorful beach towel, and they loved it and still use them!
