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.
Be sure to save this list on your Pinterest boards for later.
Non Candy Easter Basket Fillers for Girls
Your kids will love using windows or mirrors to create works of art. These International Arrivals Rainy Dayz Gel Crayon draw vibrant and bold colors on glass surfaces… and paper too.

If baths are part of your young girl’s routine, then they will love this Breyer Ella Color Surprise Bath Toy. Ella’s Hair and Spots Change Color with Water! Surprise! When you put her in water, Ella’s purple markings turn pink and her mane and tail turn bright blue. As she dries, her markings, mane and tail turn back to their original colors.

This Hog Wild Unicorn Popper White Sunshine Toy is just adorable. The popper comes with 6 rainbow-colored foam balls and your unicorn will shoot them up to 20 feet. These are so much fun and work for both indoor and outdoor play. If unicorns aren’t your girl’s thing, there are many other popper animals to choose from.
Like Pie Face, this game will be a big hit with the kids this year. The Wet Head Game is a water roulette game. Fill Wet Head with cold water, strap on the water filled Wet Head, spin the spinner and follow the instructions on the spinner based on where the arrow lands. spin the top and pull out any one of the rods. If you stay dry, pass Wet Head to the next player. Make Wet Head the perfect game for any season by adjusting the amount of water you use to play. Fill Wet Head to brim when outside in the summer heat. Bring the fun indoors for winter by using a minimal amount of water. Summer or winter, the question remains the same, “Will you be the next Wet Head'”.
