12 More Non-Candy Gift Ideas for Easter
It’s that time of year again where families are attending egg hunts and parents are scrambling (Ha! Get it?) to ensure the Easter Bunny delivers baskets that will provide happiness and enjoyment for children of all ages. Store shelves are filled with plenty of candy options, discount basket filler and even pre-made baskets. But when our kids were little, those premade baskets never spoke to us or matched our daughter’s interests. In addition, as we said in a previous Easter article and many stocking stuffer guides, we have recognized the interest a lot of families have for non-candy gifts. So here we are again, with a variety of fun, educational and entertaining ideas for a variety of ages including some that have been been featured in more detail here on our site. Those are easily identified by our logo. Click through the link to read more about those.
