10 Things for Kids to find in their Easter Basket (other than candy)

[ 3 ] March 19, 2013 |

Not all Easter Bunnies fill baskets with chocolate. Some keep treats to a minimum, take food allergies into account and may even add small gifts that inspire and amuse kids after the last egg is found. Read on for a list of Kidoinfo favorite Easter basket goodies. I’m not saying chocolate isn’t delivered to our house, just balanced with other fun things to do!

    Just popped over to Amazon for a 1-click order of Story Cubes! I love finding about new things like this. Thank you Anisa!

    My kids always enjoy finding Lego pieces in their eggs. They don’t have to be minifigures but can also be just random, interesting pieces that they’ve been looking for. (Visit the South Shore plaza Lego store and pay a few dollars for a bucket of bricks.) Healthy for their minds and bodies.
