Why fill an Easter basket with non candy items for your child? Well that is a simple one really. Many parents decide to not give their children a lot of processed sugars. This being a good health decision but, coming up with ideas to fill the basket can be a challenge.  Here are 10 ideas that I think are great basket fillers.

New Children's Bible - What better time than Easter to give your child a shiny new Bible? Favorite children's bibles include the Faith Builders Bible and the Adventure Bible.

Books - You can never have enough books and books make a great Easter basket filler because they are a perfect rainy day activity. For younger children, try this set of 10 Easter Fun Mini Activity Books.

Outdoor toys - From a shovel and pail to a soccer ball, or kite outdoor play gear is perfect for Easter giving your child a chance to get outside and enjoy nice spring days.  I personally love seeing the kids fly kites.  This Huge Rainbow Kite looks like it would be so much fun and it is highly reviewed!

Hair accessories - With spring time her cute hair accessories for girls get even cuter. Spring bows and flower headbands. Even better right after Easter all of the cute dresses go on Clearance and you can get plenty of use out of cute hair accessories you get your girls for Easter.  I really like using this Dual Sided Hanging Jewelry Organizer to store my daughter's accessories in, which could also be added to a basket.

Sports gear - If your child is into spring sports odds are they need some gear. This is a great option for your Easter basket. Water bottles, knee pads, and other small items are great non candy Easter basket ideas.

Camera - Along with great weather comes lots of opportunities for fun. A great non-candy item for your child's Easter basket is a camera to record all of the fun. Take the kids out for a photo scavenger hunt on a nice sunny day to celebrate Spring. I was really impressed by the quality and fun factor of the VTech Kidizoom Spin and Smile Camera.

Puzzles, Cards and Games - Puzzles, cards and board games are great addition to your rainy day activities to keep kids busy. These also make great family night bonding activities. Try the Monopoly Deal Card Game for older kids. These Hide N Squeak Eggs are a great motor skill puzzle activity for real young kids, while these Take Apart Zoo Animal Puzzle Erasers are cute for middle school children.

Movie tickets/gift card - For older kids a trip to the movies is a great treat. Tickets to a movie they can't wait to see or a gift card to go to any movie they want later.

Art Supplies and Stickers - When it comes to encouraging your child to express themselves art is an amazing too. Spring can be such an inspiring time and fresh art supplies means they are ready to share the beauty they see in the world.  These Resin Flatback Little Girl Appliques are so unique & cute! Oil Pastels are a neat medium to give slightly older children to work with.  Find a really great selection of stickers at The Dollar Tree.

Zoo Membership - while this seems like a big one for an Easter basket it really is practical. A family zoo membership means you have something fun to do all spring, summer, fall, and even nice days in winter. When you do not have to pay again you are more likely to go back again, and again. Be sure to check out Groupon for Zoo deals.
