Easter Basket Ideas plus a Giveaway

I am a huge proponent of non-food treats on any holiday including holidays that emphasize candy as the treat of choice. So with Easter around the corner here are some ideas for Easter baskets.  Since Easter sort of ushers in Spring it is a good time to stock the Easter basket with items for Spring: Balls, Jacks (Yes Jacks!), chalk and of course, BUBBLES!!!!  If you want to include the best bubbles in the world – Bubbles by Little Kids Inc is it.  Little Kids Inc. is a world bubbles expert and they make quality bubble products.  Kids are more likely to make bubbles with each blow on the wand and their spill free containers are absolute winners.

Jelly Belly Bubbles
Perfect for an Easter Basket are the Scented Jelly Belly bubbles in Very Cherry, Grape Jelly and Green Apple scents. I am delighted to present this timely giveaway opportunity for two Jelly Belly bubble containers.  See details for giveaway entry at the end of the post.
If you are hosting a group with a bunch of kids you may also want to get a Jelly Belly eight pack at Amazon.  

Or perhaps one of these Paw Patrol bubble blowers - sure to be a hot with any pre-schooler.

Gund Peter Rabbit Collection
Spring plush rather than chocolate rabbits are also favorites.  Gund has a gorgeous Peter Rabbit collection and they are available at Amazon. Here are my pictures from Toy Fair of both the bean bag collection and the 9 inch plush. The collection includes Peter Rabbit, Flopsy Bunny, Benjamin Bunny and Jemima Puddle Duck.

Crayola Sidewalk Chalk – Eggs and Chicks

Crayola makes the perfect chalk for Easter baskets.  A set of six sticks of washable chalk – 3 are shaped like eggs and 3 are shaped like chicks. Also available at Amazon

My granddaughter would go nuts over the Paw Patrol bubble blowers. I love giving little this and that item like crafts supply baskets with little craft things in them, or outside type baskets with chalk and bubbles and stuff.

My non-candy items are art supplies, socks, cute little plushies or stuffed toys, or things to do outdoors like frisbee, chalk, jump rope!
