So what exactly do you put in a toddler’s Easter basket? It’s easy to fill an Easter basket for a 2 year old with all sorts of chocolate and candy. You might be asking yourself are there even any other options besides candy?

The answer is yes! You can give fun Easter gift ideas to fill those baskets. They can include books, toys, games, bathroom fun, and treats that are much healthier than candy.

Your 2 year old toddlers will thank you for the fun they can have without candy. Plus you will be thanking yourself for those unneeded sugar highs.

Here are the 101 best Easter gift ideas for 2 year olds (and other toddlers), so you can be proud of your Easter baskets this year!

Easter is known for jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, and Peeps. It is great to indulge in delicious junk food, but do you really want your kids running around on a sugar high for the next 2 months straight? I didn’t think so. Here’s how you can fill your toddler Easter basket with no candy involved. #easter #toddler #spring
