I’m always looking for new ways to make Easter baskets candy-less — or at least candy-lite! This year, I used a combination of toys, books, CDs, sidewalk chalks, and just a little bit of candy, to give my kids a fun and exciting holiday. Here are my candy-lite Easter basket ideas!
 
I’ve broken down the baskets by age:
 
          Toddler: books, music CD, small trinkets, sidewalk chalk
          Pre-School: books, music CD, sidewalk chalk, books on CD/audiobooks
          Elementary School: eggs filled with Lego characters, books, books on CD/audiobooks,           gum/candy.
 
1. Use Books

My 7-year old loves The Berenstain Bears, so you can imagine my excitement when I found an activity book at our local Costco. All of my kids really enjoy sticker books from Usborne Publishing, and so I included those as well. This year, I added books on men/women of faith who have changed the world, and then Usborne sticker books (like this one) to give my kids something fun to do. For reading aloud as a family and individually, an Easter storybook is perfect to encourage them in their faith.

Let’s be honest, it doesn’t take much for the laundry room to get messy. Before you know it, you’ve got a cluttered space yet again. Instead of shoving things out of sight, keep the room neat and organized with these tips and ideas.
