Candy Free Easter Baskets Ideas for Kids

It’s time for one of my favorite tasks of the year – creating Easter baskets! I love to be creative with our Easter baskets. Ideas for kids are pretty easy – candy and toys. This year I wanted to add something a little more meaningful to the kids Easter baskets. My kids still get plenty of candy in their baskets.  I really wanted to give them other “treats” that aren’t necessarily candy or toys.  A mix of candy, toys and treats makes for a fun Easter morning and beyond.

Easter Egg Printable Notes

I created this adorable printable to write down fun events or little extras the kids can cash in after the candy is gone. Get creative and personalize the tags for each kid.  They can get extra time watching TV, playing video games or being on the computer. Give each kid a slip for an outing with mom or dad.  For little kids, give them an extra bed time story. Let older kids stay up 30 minutes past bedtime.  Whatever it is that your kids enjoy doing.  The free printable is all the way at the bottom of this post.

Once you have all the tags filled, cut them out.

Easter Egg Saying

Then roll them up and put them in an egg.  Won’t they be surprised to find this special treat on Easter morning?!

If you are feeling a little crafty, you can also make these cute bunny soaps.  They happen to fit right in to a plastic Easter egg.  They are super easy to make and are a fun project to do with the kids. You can find out how I made in my How to Make Homemade Soap with Essential Oils post.

Wondering how to make soap? Just follow this easy tutorial for the perfect Easter basket treat!


You could also make these bath bombs from The NY Melrose Family. Make them in the bunny mold and they’ll fit in the eggs. My kids love stuff for the bath so I use a lot of it in Easter baskets. Bouncy balls and even a few quarters are also great additions to Easter baskets.
