29 Fun Easter Basket Fillers!

3:25 PM

Easter Basket full of summer items, craft items, and silly string!
When I shared the kids' Easter baskets on Instagram stories last year, I got lots of questions about what I put in them. I try to avoid candy and cheaply made toys that they will tire of or break within a few uses, yet, still keep it affordable. So I thought I'd whip up a quick post with some fun, budget-friendly Easter basket filler ideas! Side note: If an item isn't pictured or doesn't have a source, I usually get it from the Dollar Tree or Spot's Playground. But most items are linked below along with additional options in the "shop this post" widget at the end of the post and an image to pin if you want to come back to it later! Enjoy!

Easter Basket Filler Ideas that aren't candy

1. Little stuffed bunny. Life hack- I reuse them. I put them away and use them the following Easter!

2. Bubbles. Bonus points for battery operated (how cute is this one?) or a bubble wand!

3. Sidewalk chalk

4. Film, for their Instax obvi.

5. Activity kits. We raid Spot's playground for these.

6. Coloring books + Crayons- this one might be the coolest coloring book I've ever seen.
