My Favorite Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas for All Ages | Lehigh Valley Moms

My kids aren’t candy people. I know what you are thinking, that sounds crazy, right? I mean they do enjoy a piece here and there but most “candy giving” holidays leave us with a pantry full of uneaten sweets. Over the years, we starting developing a list of things that the Easter Bunny could bring and that family members could include in a basket. Rather than candy, we look for snacks that they can take with their lunches, which saves us money on groceries each week. A few pieces of their favorite candy is always on the list but here is what we asked for over the years.
