Store aisles are bulging with Easter-themed chocolate and confectionery, but there are plenty of other options. Here are some themes for candy-free Easter baskets kids will love.
Cooking basket: Use a large mixing bowl as your container. Add a kid-size apron and mixing spoons, spatula, measuring cups and a chicken-themed egg timer. For instructions, there's no better guide for the newly hatched chef than Better Homes and Gardens[r] New Junior CookBook (Better Homes & Gardens Cooking)
Memory basket: Craft stores like Michaels and Jo-Ann Fabric sell sturdy decorated cardboard file boxes and upholstered sewing baskets that can be made into scrapbooking kits for the very young. Add a photo album, scrapbooking paper and some prints. Add a personalized blank notebook and an invitation to write in the journal every day, even if it's only a line.
Just want to substitute some of the candy? Well here are some things to put in a Easter basket besides candy!
