If you plan to build your own Easter basket this year and need some fun ideas for girls, we have found some great non-candy items. At our house, I like to do just a tiny bit of candy and a few small other things. Sometimes I like to include a book, some small toys and other years, I add art supplies or fun things for the upcoming Summer. I like to choose practical items or things that will last my kids a while. Check out all of our great ideas.

1. Bored No More: Quiz Book by American Girl
If Spring hasn’t quite sprung this year, your girls will love this Bored No More: Quiz Book. Choose an activity, quiz or craft from this book to beat the boredom blues. You won’t find fashion and boy quizzes in this book, just lots of fun. This book is conveniently spiral-bound and would be great for sleepovers or summertime too.
This really fun Pixy Cubes game from Blue Orange is portable and great for a variety of ages. It’s geared towards ages 6 and up and comes conveniently in it’s own tin for travel. Test your memory and create beautiful patterns.
Sophia’s makes some really cute, highly-reviewed doll accessories to use with your 18-inch dolls or American Girl Dolls. This Lemonade Doll Food Play Specialty Serving Set comes with 13 fun pieces at a nice price point. If you plan to build your own Easter basket for a doll-lover, then you should check out this cute set.
These fun, Lego Friends sets will fit perfectly in your girls’ baskets. If you are decorating an Easter basket for a horse lover, this small LEGO Friends Olivia Newborn Foal 41003 set is adorable and would be so cute for Easter. I also think this brand new LEGO Friends 41027 Mia’s Lemonade Stand would be a fun, small set. If you are looking for a small set that is more geared towards Easter, then the LEGO Friends 41029′ Stephanie’s New Born Lamb set would be a great choice.
5. Under Armour Socks and Headbands
If your girls love sports, then what better way to restock necessities at your house! These bright and colorful Under Armour Girl’s Mix and Match Socks will be a big hit. My daughter loves these headbands for gymnastics or even playing outside, along with her hair in a pony. These Under Armour Girls’ UA Mini Headbands keep all of those stray hairs in place while they are active.
I just love the cute prints on these adorable aprons and they would look great rolled up in an Easter basket. If you are building an Easter basket for a little chef, then this Sugarbooger Kiddie Aprons and a few supplies would make her Easter. This apron is made of durable, washable, waterproof canvas and features a magnetic closure neck and it stores away in it’s own pouch. It also comes in lots of really fun patterns.
Your kids will be amazed at these tablets that will color their bath. What a cool way to teach your kids their colors and make bathtime fun! These highly-reviewed tablets are safe, non-staining and earth friendly, plus they are made in America. What a fun treat for kids ages 3 and up. This Color My Bath Color Changing Bath Tablets set includes 100 large tablets and 200 small tablets.
Your girls will think it’s so cool when they find the Bundle Monster Non-Toxic Temporary Hair Pastel Chalk in their stocking. This non-toxic, temporary chalk makes it fun to add a little bit of color to hair and the color will only last a day or so. This hair chalk would be so fun for weekends, summer or dressing up in costume.
I just love these great book and craft kits from Klutz. These highly-reviewed kits include all you will need, plus instructions for your projects. There are so many to choose from and they would make a great centerpiece in an Easter basket, plus hours of fun! How cute is this Nail Style Studio: Simple Steps to Painting 25 Stunning Designs book for older girls? My daughter would love the cupcake nail design. The Make Clay Charms kit is so much fun. I was surprised that my daughter made charms that looked just like the photos. The instructions were very easy-to-follow. If you have a younger girl, then I really like this Fingerprint Fabulous: Create Sweet and Sparkly Thumbprint Art for ages 6 and up.
These aren’t your average sticker pads! Your kids will have so much fun with these interactive sticker pads from Melissa and Doug. They are affordable and you can buy them in many different themes. This Melissa & Doug Sweets & Treats Sticker Pad will allow your girls to decorate numerous cupcakes, cakes and other treats. There are also a few pads with reusable stickers like this Melissa & Doug Play House! Reusable Sticker Pad. This set includes 5 different scenes to decorate over and over again.
