Candy-Free Easter Baskets

March 27, 2018
Candy-Free Easter Baskets

This year I decided to make candy-free Easter baskets because we have adopted an alkaline vegan lifestyle and candy is not included in the Dr. Sebi approved foods. Although I will allow my little ones to enjoy candy every once in a while, I opted for candy-free Easter baskets this year. Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, alkaline vegan, or an omnivore limiting your children’s sugar consumption, particularly candy can be very beneficial for their health.

Pinterest has a ton of ideas for candy-free basket fillers. My favorite was this shopping list by Wonder Mom Wanna Be that categorizes each list with age appropriate gift ideas. I was able to use this list as a guide to creating age-appropriate Easter baskets for each of my children that I know they will enjoy. I have preschool aged up to teen children in my home so here’s the low down of what I put in their baskets.

Sonata’s Easter Basket – Age 4

Israel & Jeremiah’s – Ages 7 & 10

  • Stuffed Animal
  • bubbles
  • toothbrush
  • coloring books
  • yo-yo
  • egg-shaped sidewalk chalk
  • Playdough
  • plastic eggs with small toys inside
  • Science experiments kit

Destin’s Easter Basket – Age 12

  • yo-yo
  • puzzle book
  • plastic eggs with privilege coupons inside
  • toothbrush
  • Rubix Cube
  • earbuds

Elijah’s Easter Basket – Age 16

  • Game of Things
  • toothbrush
  • yo-yo
  • puzzle book
  • plastic eggs with privilege coupons inside
  • Acne Facial Kit ( May seem weird, but he’ll appreciate this!)

I hope this gives you an idea of what you can put inside your little ones or “big” ones Easter basket this year! Especially if you have opted for the no-candy route. If you have any additional ideas of non-candy basket fillers, please drop them below in the comments. I look forward to your suggestions. Happy Easter!
