I received product to facilitate this post about Unique Easter Basket Ideas. All opinions are my own.
Do you find yourself procrastinating when it comes to holiday prep? We have five kids of our own plus one foster child and had exactly ZERO Easter baskets ready as of March 23rd. So as I scrambled to find some awesome last minute ideas, I thought I’d share my ideas with you. I wanted to find things that would appeal to the kids, the dentist, and myself. And I think we succeeded!
Unique Easter Basket Ideas That Are NOT Candy
Growing up, my Easter basket contained the same stuff each year. Jelly beans, small chocolate eggs, little chocolate bunny shaped crispy candy, and a hollow chocolate bunny. Oh yes, and TONS of Easter grass so we could dig for our little edible treasures. It was probably every dentist’s nightmare (or dream?)! I survived but definitely had my share of cavities. And now as a parent myself, I want to find unique Easter basket ideas that are not centered around candy for our own kids.
