Non-candy Easter basket stuffers [for kids 3 and under] is what I’m sharing with you today. And the best part? They are each super inexpensive.
Easter is ‘hopping’ closer, and that means it’s time to get Easter baskets ready and all the trimmings that go along with them. This is just ONE more thing to add to our endless ‘to-do’ list as busy moms, when time is already limited.

You might be a new mom, or a mom of a newborn, and can’t get out of the house much right now. Or perhaps you’re a mom of one (or several young little ones). Carting the kids to and from school, going to playdates, park outings, etc. is probably on your daily to-do list.
Likewise, working moms are also tied up most of the week. Together with all of these family demands, the LAST thing you feel like doing is fighting crowds on the weekend to shop for Easter basket items.
Shopping Made Easy:
Sometimes it’s just TOO HARD to get packed up with the kids and make it out of the house to go shopping. It often feels easier to just stay home. To help make mom life a little easier for you, I have already done the shopping! Yes moms! You can get any of these Easter goodies without ever leaving your home.
Don’t Kids Want Candy In Their Easter Basket?
Sure, we get the kids a few pieces of candy for their baskets—I mean, the BIG chocolate bunny that my parents would put in my basket every year was my FAVORITE.
We like to do that and things like jelly beans inside small plastic eggs. But our kids don’t need endless amounts of sugar, which is why we decide to limit that, and instead stuff the baskets mainly with non-candy items.
Why The Non-Candy Stuffers:
Toys are novelties with young kids. So if yours are anything like mine, I’m sure when they get a new toy, they play with it nonstop for a short time.
And then they forget about it.
Because of this, I’ve kept my Easter Basket picks budget friendly, so that you don’t waste your money.
Not to mention, Christmas was JUST a little over three months ago. And I’m SURE the kids got plenty of toys and treats during the holidays.
These non-candy ideas are sure to put smiles on your little ones’ faces . . . and won’t leave you ‘hopping’ mad that you broke the bank, or your neck, trying to get these baskets together. Ok, ok, enough of the Easter puns.
So, you’re wondering what is there to put in Easter Baskets besides candy? Then let’s get started . . .
