Try to think outside the box – or Easter basket – this year for some fun alternatives to candy:
- Tooth Treats: If your little one loves stuffed animals, Plak Posse Palz are soft toys with “real teeth” so kids can practice brushing and flossing on a furry friend. Kids will also enjoy this Spider Man musical toothbrush – a super hero and music for twice the fun! For the princess in your life, check out the Cinderella electric toothbrush.
- Trade a chocolate bunny for a stuffed one. Who wouldn’t love a new friend to hug and cuddle? Or try a huggable hoodie blanket for warmth on a cold day.
How about something to keep your child busy? Fill a basket with puzzles, board or travel games. Games will keep your child’s mind sharp. Best of all, they’re fun for every age.
- Celebrate spring with sidewalk chalk: Encourage your kids to get outside; after all, the weather’s beautiful. These egg- and chick-shaped chalks will provide hours of active fun for kids. Is it a rainy day? Here are some spring craft ideas.
- Books, CDs and DVDs: These are great gifts for young kids and teens. Is there a movie or music your child wants to see or hear? Here are some ideas for the latest kids’ CDs and DVDs. Better yet, encourage your child to love books with a basketful of stories.
- Teen ideas: Give your teen a break from chores or curfew, or a free tank of gas with a printable coupon book you can easily create yourself.
No matter what Easter basket you choose to create, remember that holidays are best spent with family and friends. Happy Easter!
