Easter Basket suggestions

I'm looking for easter basket stuffing ideas that are not sugary treats (i have plenty of that). Im thinking crafts, activities, small toys, useful things that will still excite children, but aren't going to fill a landfill in a week. My kids are 4, but any age suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

I really liked this one, which I recently purchased for my friend's kids:

You can always put bubbles in a basket for kids. How about plain white t-shirts that they can tie dye? It's a fun activity and they get to keep the t-shirt. And of course the obvious, stuffed animal.

A few I've used in the past - fun colorful socks, books, sidewalk chalk or cool markers/pens. Also Lego minifigures!

My kids loved stickers, stamps with stamp pads, books, coloring stuff, markers, coloring books, beads to string on a big shoelace, paint with water books, search and find books, maze books, kinetic sand, and puzzles.

Last year I couldn’t get to the store for traditional treats so I made little coupons for things like “sleep in the basement with Dad” and “bike ride with Mom”
Super easy and a huge hit with my kids

Erin Lee "sleep in the basement with Dad" is a gift, not a punishment? 🤪

I always like to add in small summer sand and pool toys, sunglasses, also small kinetic sand containers, mad mattr, molding clay, playdough, My kids like lego figures and imaginex figures that come in mystery bags, lip glosses, bathtub toys like bath colors and crayons and bubbles have been hits over the years.

Liz Pearce -HA! Not punishment for the kids but a little torturous for me when it was my turn to camp with them in the basement :)

Jurassic Terrarium. Mini terrariums with a tiny dinosaur inside. So cute and a fun Easter basket stuffer.

Last year we took an Easter-themed Lego set and distributed the pieces across about a dozen plastic eggs, then hid those. That was a hit!

We do activities. So we get these NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC Dinosaur Dig Kit- Some chalk, bubbles, a Melissa and Doug water wow and some water play toys.

Things like a mini etch a sketch, slinky, sea monkeys, yo-yos are toys that will never be grown out of. Klutz books have great activities. Crystals (and even marbles when the kiddos are really young) are great for inside eggs. Even things like over-the-top tooth brushes are fun. I did new PJs this year too. I know, I may as well fill it with fruit. But there’s plenty of fun stuff too!

I cut out Easter egg shapes and colored them then clipped varying amounts of money to the back. I hid them in the house and M went hunting!

Bubbles, squirt guns, pool diving toys, silly putty, gift cards, stuffies, are some ideas. I got mine new kindles because theirs are very old and don’t work as well anymore.

I have also been trying to go away from sugary Easter treats. This year we have unicorn sidewalk chalk, a boomerang, bunny shooters (hard plastic bunnies that, when a button is pushed, the cotton tail pops off, pool color bombs (similar to bath bombs) and bunny face ring pops. I know those are sugar, but they are so cute, I am looking forward to the pictures.

Anything from a Waldorf School Store. Take a look at the Austin Waldorf School ...Juniper Tree Store.
