With Easter just a few weeks away, I wanted to share some fun (non-candy) ideas for filling your little one’s basket. Below are some of my favorite things that your child will likely love much more than jellybeans or a chocolate bunny.
Easter Themed Kid’s Books
There are so many adorable Easter books for kids from Runaway Bunny and Bright Baby Touch and Feel Easter to Peter Rabbit Easter Surprise. Books are the perfect item to fill you child’s basket with that they can enjoy long after Easter day.

Young green thumbs can watch nature at work by growing an indoor garden in just days with the Indoor Gardening Kit from Green Toys. Made of recycled plastic, this planting kit comes with a peapod-shaped planter, three planting pots, a trowel, and three packages of organic seeds of teddy bear sunflower, basil, and zinnia and soil disks.

Haha Dancing Eggs Game
Haba Dancing Eggs game is fun for the whole family. Made in Germany, this game includes 9 rubber eggs and 1 wooden egg. Caught the dancing egg? Fine, now run around the table – with the egg under your armpit or between the knees … as soon as an egg drops, the game is over. And beware of egg thieves!
