Easter Sunday is only days away! Have you bought the items for the Easter Baskets? The baskets were traditionally filled with a copious amount of candy, but now people are moving away from all that excess. In the past, I have included a new DVD, this year I have added a few different things to go with a few Purdy’s chocolates I got from the school fundraiser.

Every year we look for different items to put in the Easter Baskets. One year we added Easter themed Lego sets including rabbits, birds, and flowers. We also used refillable eggs and put tattoos, stickers and hair ties in them. This year we have few new ideas and there is even a new trend with Easter Egg Tokens! Check out our 2023 non-chocolate things to fill your children’s baskets with.

A Substitute for Sugar

Healthy Hippo is a delicious, plant-based low sugar candy. Their goal is to change perceptions about snacking – that snacks and cravings for sweets are part of a healthy diet.

Easter Egg Tokens

Instead of filling Easter baskets with sweets or chocolates, this year, many parents are opting for Easter egg tokens – small tokens that fit into Easter eggs with different prizes written on them, like ‘extra play time’ or a ‘movie night’. Here are some great printable options.
