Non-chocolate Easter gifts for kids

Is there such a thing as a chocolate-free Easter? Lauren helps out families with some gift tips to reduce the sugar hit this Easter.

Non-chocolate Easter gifts for kidsHave you started your Easter shopping yet? There are chocolate eggs as far as the eye can see when you visit the supermarket – but what if you’re looking for some non-chocolate alternatives? I’ve got some great gift ideas for babies (because babies are too little for chocolate), toddlers (because we don’t want to give them too much chocolate) and preschoolers (because have you seen a four year old on a sugar high?). Keep on reading if you’re trying to avoid the chocolate overload come Easter Sunday morning.

Plenty of tips for a chocolate-free Easter!

    Nice examples! I love this sweet pygamas! I find difficult to buy something really unique. I give my kids presents only on special ocassion so I know it’s must be bull’s-eye 😉 This year I bought a star from kingdom of universe. I hope they like it. Last summer we spent a holiday ona bivouac and they loved to spend evenings on counting stars so I think they would like it 🙂
