Creative Easter Basket Kid Gifts That Aren't Toys — or Candy

This year, why not ditch the pre-made Easter baskets filled with cheap plastic toys and various sugar-high-inducing candy disasters, and instead go for something that will spark your kids’ imaginations starting Easter Sunday (and won’t fall apart before Mother’s Day). Yes, we’re suggesting you make your own Easter basket — and fill it with art supplies, stickers, tattoos, books, journals, and more to get your kids’ self-expression juices flowing. Plus, making your own basket is really not that hard, and you can tailor it to suit your kid: cute, rustic, super-modern, you name it.
