Easter and Spring are upon us here in the southeastern United States and I’ve been thinking about Easter Baskets. My husband and I prefer to celebrate with loved ones, a feast, and if we are doing Easter Baskets then filling these Baskets with items our children need.
We prefer non-candy items that our children will enjoy. I’ve seen several alternatives to the traditional candy-filled Easter Baskets online, but these Umbrella Easter Baskets from Primal Dish were by far my favorite idea! Go check her out to see for yourself!

Our son LOVES Science. He loves building things and always wants to know how things work. He is also an aspiring Paleontologist and Herpetologist. With all of these things in mind here are the non-candy items we filled our eight-year old’s Umbrella Easter Basket with:
- Dinosaur Umbrella
- Jurassic World Backpack
- ThinkFun Maker Studio: Gears Set
- K’nex Education: Intro to Simple Machines – Gears Set

Here are Some other Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas
Remember, you can make your kiddos Easter baskets into anything you want. You can make them affordable by shopping at your local Dollar Store, Dollar Tree, or the dollar section of Target as well as give your baskets themes if you wish…think card games or art! One year we even filled plastic Easter eggs with rocks and fossils for our son’s rock collection!
Instead of Umbrellas, you could also fill rainboots, Dump Trucks, or Cute Toy Bins!
I hope we gave you some non-candy ideas for filling your next Easter Basket Umbrella. We look forward to playing in the rain and learning while we explore the great outdoors.
