Every Easter, my kids’ baskets are filled with enough sugar to keep them bouncing off the walls for hours. Although I do think giving sweets is a tradition I will keep, I like to add in some non-sugary options to keep them enterained as well.
Combat the Candy
Elmo BriteBrush is the perfect gift for Easter, to round out the baskets with something that isn’t candy. It’s a gift for both kids and parents! With Elmo as their brushing coach, kids can learn how to properly brush their teeth while having a blast playing games and earning star rewards within the toothbrush, for immediate feedback after brushing. Of course, Elmo will have them singing and humming along to his famous Brushy Brush song.
BriteBrush is on a mission to make it FUN to brush your teeth RIGHT by using game play and smart sensor technology to teach and instill healthy oral care habits for the whole family. As parents, we know that getting your kids to brush their teeth is hard and stressful which is why BriteBrush was developed. The toothbrush transforms this twice-a-day, everyday struggle into something fun and effective for the whole family.
Announce a Trip
My parents used to get me a swimsuit every year for Easter, and I like to continue the tradition of a spring apparel item! Smaller Things is an adorable line of 100% organic cotton, artist-illustrated PJs. How cute would it be to get them a pair of PJs from the city you are planning to visit? A themed Easter basket with Smaller Things Boston PJs, a lobster bib, a map of the city, and some tea would be a great way to announce a family trip this summer.
You could also gift them snacks from around the world with a gift box from Universal Yums. Plan your next major family vacation and sample snacks from different countries. There are treats from countries like France, Scandanavia, Indonesia and more.
Hop To a Game
World Market has more than just furniture and awesome decor- they always have fabulous items for holidays! While you are perusing the Easter tablescapes, pick up one of their games so the kids can enjoy while you tend to tasks during brunch. They have an Easter Scavenger Hunt for under $10, as well as Easter Bingo Cards and other assorted games.
Cheers to taking a chill on the candy, and giving your kids something to stimulate their minds for the Easter holiday!
