For my 3.5 year old I am filling the basket with kitchen items that she can use to help make food. Kinderkitchen makes a darling little knife in the shape of a dog that is not too sharp, she has been asking for a "kid's knife" for a long time and I think she's responsible enough :-) she will like this more than any chocolate I might include, I'm sure.

This is a follow up to the "giraffe whisk" which she liked at least as much as her new bike at Xmas!

The 16 month old will be getting a baby doll, she really has doll envy and it goes with the whole rebirth theme of spring.

One favorite Easter gift here was a length of red sparkly fabric (the kind with sequins).  Over the last 10 years, it has been used as a cape, apron, skirt, tablecloth, blanket, etc.  For non-candy edibles, I like dried fruit and whole-grain crackers.  Other ideas: books, balls, silly socks, special soap/shampoo/lip balm/toothpaste, etc., jump ropes, hula hoops, wii games, dvds, piggy bank...

We do edible things mostly but things like cheese string, yogurt in their own containers.  They very rarely get individual things so it is a real treat.  

 

We also get them rubber boots and use them as the basket.  We usually get them their Easter outfits too.  They love tights so they get some of those.  Elastics...things like that.

Panties fit really well into the plastic easter eggs.  My DD8 still refers back to her "easter panties".

I usually do a swimsuit, sunglasses, flip-flops etc. and a spring/summer outfit plus some fun outdoor toys. This year I'm thinking maybe some kind of ring or bean bag toss game.

 

I love the idea of the golden $ coins.  My DD would LOVE that.  She loves counting money.  I could wrap some up in some panties and stuff them in the plastic eggs (kind of like a pp suggested).

I just realized that the gold coins will be diverted on St. Patrick's day ... the girls had an Irish American preschool teacher who taught them about elves and gold coins coming on the day .... it'll be a thrill for them to find them and see the funny mischief by the elves (chairs on tables, clothing out of the drawer, etc.)

I love this idea! I need to go to the bank today.
