  1. Those are all really cute ideas. I never knew they had sidewalk chalk stencils. My kids like using sidewalk chalk on our front walkway and patio.

  2. These are all really fantastic ideas on Easter Basket fillers that are not candy. I love the sidewalk chalk personally 🙂

  3. OMGoodness, I would love to have all of these in my kids baskets. Of course my favorite would be the sidewalk chalk too, me and the kids love playing with chalk.

  4. My niece and nephews are going to love these alternatives. They have diet restrictions and can no longer just eat stuff with lots of dyes or even too much sugar. This will help them to still enjoy Easter.

  5. We always got/gave Hot Wheels cars. They’re under a buck each and perfect for all ages!

  6. We all love the candy, but we end up with pounds of chocolate by the end of Easter. I was talking to the Easter Bunny, and he said he loves all of these ideas.
