9 Ideas for a Non-Candy Easter Basket

Easter is just around the corner and I've been busy collecting little goodies for Easter baskets. Although my girls love Easter candy, I try to add mostly non-candy items. With these items, they're creative, fun things that can be used long after Easter is finished and won't create a sugar rush. After all, they're sure to get enough delicious treats at the dessert buffet at Easter brunch.

These items are all relatively low in price that all ages appreciate and love. Seriously, if I had an Easter basket, I'd be thrilled to see these items on Sunday morning before church.

World's Smallest Maze Game Children of all ages test their dexterity by moving a small ball through the intricate maze. I guarantee that every adult at the Easter table will want to give this a try.

Make your Own Party Piñata Long after Easter Sunday, this craft kit will delight for hours. Create a piñata and fill it with treats to share or save it to display.

Monogram Canvas Pouch My girls like to keep their backpacks organized with smaller bags. These monogram canvas pouches are a whimsical touch on a classic pencil case.

Love Colorblock Card Set of 12 Use these adorable notes for thank you cards or any special notes.

Play-Doh Easter Eggs Here's a secret confession...I like the smell of Play-Doh. It's one of those happy childhood memory smells. I love playing with Play-Doh, too, and bet that any of your little bunnies would love to find these eggs in their Easter baskets.

Lilly Pulitzer Key Fob Girls of all ages adore Lilly Pulitzer. She can keep her house key or gym locker key on a colorful key chain.

Spotted Alpaca Ecru Bunny Natalia has had a bunny that she calls "Rabbie" since she was born. Everyone will love a little bunny on Easter!

Meri Meri Easter Stickers Stickers keep little hands busy during long Easter vigils or at fancy Easter meals. As an added bonus, children will delight their family by designing cards for everyone.

Oil Pastel Crayons Everyone loves crayons, but these are a huge upgrade, even from the 64 pack of Crayolas.

Do you try to include a mix of candy and non-candy items in Easter baskets? 



  1. Play Doh eggs!!! I LOVE THE SMELL OF PLAY DOH. I sound possessed....lol. My mom never let me have the stuff when I was a kid. She said it got stuck in the carpet, lol.

    1. The Play Doh is my favorite item on this list. Add me too the possessed group, because the smell of Play Doh is pretty amazing. Almost as amazing as tempera paint and crayons. I should be teaching elementary school instead of high school with those kinds of likes! Ha!
