The sugar-high on Easter Sunday is like no other. While chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and sugar-filled treats are still a holiday must-have, the Easter Bunny (yes, you) is the one who calls all the shots, which means you can trade some sweets for a range of fun, sugar-free Easter basket stuffers this year. Take a look at this list and choose from an assortment of non-candy filler ideas for different age groups: babies, toddlers, kids, tweens and teens. No matter their interests, these Easter-appropriate toys, books, activity sets and festive finds will keep them occupied while you finish preparing your family’s holiday feast. As a bonus, they’re all fairly cheap, from $5 to $15, so it won’t cost a lot to make your kids happy all day long (and hopefully in the weeks and months to come).
If you’re looking for something more specific, we have Easter basket ideas tailored to hard-to-shop for boys and teens. And, if it feels like it’s more than you can handle, we found a selection of pre-made Easter baskets that you can order online and have delivered before Sunday morning.
