“No Junk” Easter Gifts for Children

Every year at Easter we put together a little scavenger hunt for our boys – but it’s a little different than most, since we really enforce the “no junk” rule.

While we make exceptions to what our kids eat, I’m just not a fan of bombarding them with tons of tiny “hardly real ingredients” chocolates. So the hubby and I started a fun little tradition years ago where we set up a treasure hunt of sorts, and the boys find little gifts left by the Easter Bunny on their way.

The Easter Bunny will of course bring 1 chocolate treat for each boy, but just one. Some of the “no junk” Easter Gifts for children the Easter Bunny likes to leave our kids include puzzles and art materials, but usually our kids each get one new Spring outfit, along with some other little goodies!  It’s a fun morning of surprises and our children know that the Easter Bunny only brings items they can use so we aren’t filling up the landfill with more useless “junk”.

Some great “no junk” Easter Gifts for children include:

  • Spring Outfit
  • Running Shoes
  • Rain Boots
  • Rain Coats
  • Sun Hat or Sunglasses
  • Bathing Suit
  • Art supplies
  • Books
  • Puzzles
  • Deck of Cards
  • Kite
  • Sand Toys
  • Bubbles
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Gardening kit

Aside from chocolates, what does the Easter Bunny bring to your house?
