I’m sure we will do some candy but I think after Halloween, Christmas and then Valentine’s by the time Easter rolls around you are almost candied out. Although, Easter has some of the best candy imo with the Reese’s eggs. Yum! 🙂

Great list! I try to really, really limit the amount of candy my kids gets around Easter because I know they will be getting candy from the grandparents!

We have too much of everything candy and toys. haha! I think this year I’m going to focus on outside stuff like chalk, bubbles, etc. If all goes as planned we will be moving this Summer so no need to move in more toys when what we really need to do is go through and purge.

So many great ideas! I always loved getting non-candy things in my Easter basket! Because when it’s all said and done, the candy is gone in a few days and nothing is left! haha

I always love supplementing Easter baskets with something other than just candy! My favorite growing up was always coloring books and pastel-colored jewelry!
