Easter is just around the corner, and that means for those who celebrate, it’s time to start thinking about filling those Easter baskets. While I love a good old chocolate bunny or cross in mine, with allergies and sensitivities to food, that can become a nightmare. Have no fear! I have compiled a list of must-have, non-candy Easter basket items that kids of all ages are sure to love!
