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.
