Easter is almost here! It’s my second favorite holiday (Halloween being the first). Who couldn’t love a holiday dedicated to free candy?! Yeah, yeah, I know that’s not the real reason for the celebrations, but FREE CANDY!
This is the first Easter I’ve bothered putting any gifts together. I didn’t want to give the kids the run-of-the-mill chocolate eggs and bunny shaped candy, so I put my thinking cap on (aka went on pinterest), and I came up with some fun (almost candy-free) Easter basket goodies that I know both kids will love! Bonus #1 I don’t have to drool over chocolate I can’t devour. Bonus #2 I don’t have to deal with sugar-highs!
Piggle is getting more than Sequel. Not because I don’t love them equally, but because Sequel is more concerned with death-defying balancing stunts and picking her nose than counting presents. Plus, baby stuff is boring!
Piggle’s basket does have some chocolate and candy in it. It just wouldnt be Easter without some cavities.
His bucket contains:
1: a gigantor shovel
3: glow sticks
4: silly string (that I will send to Nana’s because I’m not dealing with that mess)
7: a pair of shorts
8: an ironman Pez (he is OBSESSED with superheroes)
9: a Spiderman chocolate egg
10: a Kinder egg (I heard the U.S has banned these. Y’all are missing out!)
11: plastic eggs filled with stickers and tattoos
12: a stuffed whale
That’s a pretty badass basket if you ask me!
2: DVDs (which Piggle will promptly claim ownership of)
3: a stuffed swan and a stuffed koala
5: a pair super cute tights
7: plastic eggs filled with cheerios
See? You can save all the delicious stuff for yourself, and give the kids something useful! It also didn’t cost me very much. I hit up the dollar store and Wal-Mart. No need to shell out the big bucks!
Hope I was able to give you some candy-free ideas!
What’s in your Easter baskets this year?
