Candy and Easter baskets go together like peanut butter and jelly. But at our house every year we have more candy than we know what to do with and it is always wasted.

This year I decided to go a different way. Although I will be putting one chocolate bunny in Sharkie’s basket, the rest of her basket will be candy free.

I tend to put taller items in the back. Sharkie loves books and American Girl just came out with a great line of early readers.

Chalk is always a great Easter present and Target has some of the largest and most colorful packs.

These markers last forever and they provide hours of entertainment. Amazon has tons of choices.

I tend to collect small items in the months leading up to Easter to fill the space. Five Below is a great place to stock up.

Five Below currently has Bluey toys. Always a hit with the preschool crowd.
I am so excited about Sharkie’s big Easter gift this year. It’s so cute and fosters learning and nurturing.
