Easter is another one of those holidays that makes me cringe. Just like Halloween, Christmas and Valentines – our children are showered with sugary sweets. Some people believe that Easter isn’t Easter without chocolate bunnies, eggs and chicks. What are the options if you choose to try and avoid all the sugar?

Here are three ideas that we really like that won’t break the bank or the belly.

1) LEGO is always a favourite. Here are 29 LEGO kits for under $25.00 that you can fill their baskets with! ranging from the adorable Easter Chick ($12.99) to Star Wars TIE Fighter Attack (24.99).
