I’m not sure from where the tradition came that we shove as much sugar coated marshmallow animals, chocolates, and other candies in Easter baskets for our kids, but I’m not a fan of the tradition. By day’s end, my toddler is bouncing off the walls, my teenager reverts to the days of needing a nap, and our house is strewn end-to-end with candy wrappers.
We decided that our Easter baskets would have fun little toys, candy-free treats and traditions that we created ourselves. This year, our traditions include Disney – we’re having a #DisneyEaster!
Here’s the thing about Easter candy; much of it was left in the basket anyway. Jelly beans were never eaten – they were just stuck to the fake grass. Our favorite part of our baskets were the eggs we colored, the little gifts or crayons we could enjoy without the sugar rush, and the kites!
I love going to Walmart for Easter because they have an awesome selection of Easter toys, goodies, candy if you like, and baskets and decor.
One of my favorite things about Easter is the moment the kids see their baskets; we actually use character buckets or baskets because they’re more fun than traditional baskets, they’re something the kids are likely to use again, and the ones we found at Walmart this year feature their favorite Disney (and Marvel!) characters.
I love that we found so many great items featuring their favorite Disney characters. What could be better than a Disney Easter? From their seasonal section to the clothing section and back to the toy section, you’ll find items that will make them forgot all about Easter candy.
Ella’s favorite is Doc McStuffins, so we found little cases, crayon and coloring book sets, a metal crayon case and other great items that are NOT candy but are still going to make her Disney Easter the best Easter ever.
We even found these super cute Play Packs that include crayons, a coloring book, a poster, stickers and more! These are great for the Easter road trip to grandma’s house.
And, we couldn’t forget the kids’ kites. This Easter basket addition was my and my sister’s favorite addition each year. In fact, we still talk about our favorite kites, the years that we got to fly them that day – when we had nice weather – or the years we didn’t – when we had to trudge through snow.
Which would you rather have for Easter? A basket full of sticky candy, or would you rather have a Disney Easter? What’s your favorite Easter basket goodie?
