Non-Candy Easter Basket Fillers by Age Groups

Looking for an alternative then candy in your children’s Easter baskets this year?  You’ll be surprised to find out that your kids will actually not miss the candy once you fill their baskets with things that they like.  Here are some ideas for you to use and please feel free to comment and add some more ideas for us to share with each other!!

** Tip:  Some of these items are small enough that you can put in easter eggs to hide!!  If you have girls and boys try hiding pick and blue eggs and that way they can only find their color eggs.  That way they get their own items.
