This time of year, I’m on the lookout for healthy Easter basket ideas. My children will get some of their candy favorites in their baskets, but I don’t want to bring a month’s worth of candy into the house. There are so many healthy alternatives to fill up Easter baskets. Here are ten ideas that will appeal to a variety of ages.

Healthy Easter Basket Ideas

Fruit infusion water bottle: This device helps make water taste more like a treat.

Easter Eggstravaganza Mad Libs: This activity book is a fun way to pass the time if you’ll be on the road for Easter.

EOS lip balm: My daughter loves this lip balm, which is shaped sort of like an egg. She’d love this limited edition spring version.

Baseball cards: My son can’t get enough baseball cards, so they’re perfect for the Easter basket.

Magic markers or other art supplies: Our magic markers always seem to be dried out when we need them, so this is a great time to freshen up the supply.

Donut pan or other fun baking supplies: Your kids won’t be disappointed by the lack of candy if they can make their own donuts any time.

Chameleon watering can: This cute watering can will inspire your children to get outside and help with the gardening.

Kids’ garden gloves: Every child should have his/her own gardening gloves. That way, there’s no excuse not to help!

Green Toys indoor gardening kit: If the weather isn’t quite ready for outdoor gardening yet, this indoor gardening kit is a fun way to get things started.

What non-candy fillers will your children find in their Easter baskets this year? Please share your ideas in the comments.


  1. These are all great ideas Annemarie. I like the idea of wall decals. My youngest is all about Minecraft and would love some new posters or decals with that.

  2. Hi Annemarie. Thanks for all the great easter basket ideas. I already bought a small chocolate bunny and some jelly beans. It doesn’t exactly fill the basket, but just like you mentioned in your post, I didn’t want to fill it up with just candy and chocolate. I’ll definitely be adding some markets, stickers and garden gloves. And I think the fruit infusion water bottle is a great idea too. I think you could possibly fill the fruit reservoir in the center with small ice cubes too. Thanks again.

    1. Thanks, Nathalie! That sounds like a great collection. We used to always include stickers too when our kids were younger.
