Spring is in the air, and Easter is right around the corner! Do you have your Easter baskets ready?! Kids love candy (who doesn’t?!), but while those marshmallow bunnies are cute and those jellybeans are yummy, why not go for some non-candy alternatives that are just as sweet—and way more fun! Read on to discover our top 10 creative Easter basket stuffers!
1. An Adorable Customizable Plush Keychain
They’re furry, they’re colorful, and they’re oh-so-cute! Color your own Tie-Dye Friendsies with pink and blue markers (blend them to make purple!) and create a unique tie-dye design. Then hook it to your backpack to go to school with your very own colorful pal in tow! A great choice for creative expression (and did we mention they’re seriously cute?!).
2. Positivity Jewelry for the Win
Kindness is contagious—spread some this Easter with Donut Worries — a line of adorable DIY bracelet kits that remind you to “Be Kind Always” & think positive! It’s one little donut, stuffed with all the good vibes. Add charms, beads, and your own unique touch to all three custom pieces. The best part? You can join the Positivity Club for even more ways to serve up happiness. Who needs jellybeans and chocolate when you can have a donut for your Easter treat?!
One thing we can all do is drink more water, so you better get chugging—in style! Personalize your own stainless steel water bottle with cool stickers like sunflowers and rainbows, and empowering phrases like “Radiate Positivity.” Then, use 6 bundles of thread to make your own friendship bracelets to wear, share, or tie onto your water bottle’s handle. DIY water bottles are both fun AND functional! (And you can never have too many!)
4. Create Drawings That Come Alive™
What if we said you could bring your favorite L.O.L. Surprise! Tots to life? Now you can with the interactive experience of Chalk Alive! The coolest sidewalk chalk you’ve ever seen, this gift idea combines creativity with technology for hours of fun—just in time for spring! Plus, it’s the perfect reason to get outside! Just draw it, capture it, and play Bae!
Peter Rabbit’s got nothing on this adorable bunny! Use 6 vibrant paints to make this 7-inch ceramic stepping stone the perfect piece of Easter décor. Painting is a great screen-free (and sugar-free!) activity that kids will love—plus, painting inside the mosaic design helps build hand-eye coordination. It’s a win-win!

8. Make Your Own Easter Bead Pets
Don’t let the name fool you—pony beads are for much more than making horses! This season, why not try your hand at a cute pink bunny, or even a sweet little chick?! String ‘em, weave ‘em, then hang these little bead friends as keychains on everything from your backpack to lunchbox and sports bag! Ok, they’re not furry, but they’re just as cute!
