Easter is almost here and the stores are filled with candy.
Lots of candy.
It is hard to get down the aisles and not see the candy. My guilty pleasure is the Cadbury Mini Eggs. Its been a tough road avoiding these bad boys.
I love to fill my kids Easter baskets but I do not like to give them tons of candy. Each year they get one piece of candy in their basket. A chocolate bunny, a Peanut Butter cup egg, or a single serve bag of jelly beans. I know they will get plenty of candy at the egg hunts we attend and that is way too much in my opinion.
I have created a list of ideas for your kids Easter Baskets that is NOT candy! Most items can be bought at the Dollar Store and I have even included a few items for older kiddos as well.
