5 Easter basket ideas that are sweet without being candy

Spring has sprung which means Easter is right around the corner! I've started gathering a few items to put into my kids Easter basket and wanted to share a few of my favorites that are sweet...even though they're not candy! Our baskets do of course contain a few yummy treats but I also like to add a fun mix of items that can be used daily.

1. Build your own road/track tape is a great small item to add to Easter baskets. I also grabbed these mini trains and cars from Target that will be perfect for pretend play with the tape and fit inside of plastic eggs.

2. Crayon Holder- Perfect for creativity and taking on the go. Its small size is the perfect addition to baskets.

3. Rainbow wand- such a fun accessory to use in pretend play and gives all the spring vibes!

4. Melissa and Doug water wow's- these paint with water books are perfect for on the go and can be used over and over again.

5. Custom crayons from Art 2 The Extreme there are so many to choose from and they come in such cute packaging. All you had to do is pop them right into the basket.

Better toys for Better Travels

...even if you're just headed to dinner

So Handmade toys are perfect for taking on your travels, out to dinner or to Grandmas house. Busy toddlers and preschoolers have lots of energy to burn when waiting at restaurants, on planes, and in cars. Just because you're on the go, doesn't mean your little ones can't enjoy imaginative play! The concept is simple: give kids real toys they can play with anywhere, and make them easy to transport and keep together. Having SO Handmade toys as an alternative gives kids a way to use their imaginations to fill in colors and sounds on a simple backdrop of a roadmap. 

So Handmade toys are made with eco-friendly values, high quality craftsmanship, organically sourced materials and with an environmentally conscious approach. When you receive your So Handmade goodies they are packaged beautifully in boxes and mailers that are made from recycled materials. Each and every SO Handmade piece is handmade in my Woodstock, New York studio space.

Even the fabric scraps are donated and reused making this a zero waste studio.
