It’s almost Easter and you are probably looking for inexpensive no candy Easter basket ideas for your kids or grandkids.
Easter is fun. Dying eggs. Easter egg hunts. Going to church and celebrating Christ’s resurrection. It’s an exciting day to celebrate.
But it’s not a time you want to go overboard and spend a ton of money filling those baskets with candy. Instead, let’s look for gifts you can put in your kids’ Easter baskets that are fun, not candy, and less than $10.

10 No Candy Easter Basket Ideas For Less Than $10
Why no candy? I wish I could say it was all in the name of being healthy. But we actually avoid candy in our house because our daughter is severely allergic to peanuts and some tree nuts.
So whether you’re looking for healthier gift ideas or something to go with the candy in your kids’ basket, below are the best Easter gifts on Amazon for less than ten bucks.
BONUS: If you have Amazon Prime, you can get free shipping on almost all of the gift ideas below. If you aren’t a Prime member and haven’t taken advantage of Your Free 30-Day Trial of Amazon Prime yet, check that out first! Then enjoy these great Easter deals.
1. Eggs Filled With Mini Pull-Back Cars
Looking for Easter eggs that are already filled with great gifts? Look no further than these 12 colorful eggs pre-filled with Mini Pull Back Cars.
The cars are adorable and they zoom fast too. Your kids will enjoy hunting for each egg just to see which cool vehicle is in the next one. These look perfect for girls or boys, and unlike many of the pre-filled egg trinkets, these will actually get played with long after Easter is over.
Plus, they’ll save you precious time because you don’t have to figure out what to put inside all of your eggs.
2. Easter Books
Almost every gift-giving time in my house involves a book. Birthdays, Christmas, and Easter too. We’ve regularly read to our babies since they were itty bitty, and now they both love books. In fact, our diaper bag is not filled with toys. It’s filled with books!
Reading with your children has so many benefits. You’ll help build your children’s vocabulary and knowledge, spark creativity, boost their empathy and concentration, and strengthen your bond by spending special time together.
So even though we have plenty of books at home, it’s one gift I don’t mind buying more of. Plus, you can find gently used Easter books at thrift stores or online Facebook buy & sell groups for about $1 per book.
Last year we bought our daughter the Dora Easter book, which focuses more on Easter egg hunts and parties. This year we bought the board book version of The Easter Story so my (destructive) son can enjoy the story with us too–without ripping the pages.
To save a few bucks, you can purchase a used book in very good condition on Amazon, and your kids will never know the difference. 😉
3. Deluxe Slime Start Kit With Glitter Glue
School Glue + 12 Glitter Glue Pens = Happy Kids.
You and your kids can make stretchy, jiggly, and sparkly slime with the Deluxe Slime Starter Kit With 12 Glitter Glue Pens. With over 3,300 reviews and a 4.3 rating, this would be my go-to starter kit for making slime.
If your kids are really into making and playing with different batches of ooey-gooey slime, you may want to look into the gallon of School Glue to save the most money.
4. Tomy Hide & Squeak Eggs
Put a little fun and educational twist on your Easter egg hunt this year by hiding these squeaky fun eggs.
Both of my little ones like these squeaky eggs by Tomy. The bottom of each egg has a different shape, and the faces on each eggshell match one of the colorful chicks inside.
Your preschooler or toddler will enjoy hiding and finding the eggs then matching the colors and shapes, while your babies will enjoy taking them apart and hammering them to make them squeak.
5. Easter Stampers
This is a limited deal, so I hope you act fast. This kit includes 50 Easter Stampers with cute Easter designs that are pre-inked.
No need for ink pads.
AND they fit inside plastic Easter eggs!
These would be perfect if your kids like doing crafts, making cards, or if you’re looking for no candy Easter basket ideas for egg hunts or classroom parties.
6. Jumbo Clay Dough Easter Eggs with 3D Dinosaur Molds
These bright colored Easter Eggs with Clay Dough and 3D Dinosaur Molds inside would be fun for creative and imaginative play.
Each egg includes 3 colors of clay dough and 2 dinosaur molds so you and the kids can create mini dinosaurs that look real.
If you have a kiddo who loves dinosaurs, they’ll be ecstatic to find these in their Easter basket this year.
7. Melissa & Doug Slice & Sort Wooden Eggs
The Melissa & Doug Slice & Sort Eggs are perfect if you prefer wooden eggs over plastic eggs and want an Easter basket gift idea that encourages hand-eye coordination, motor skills, color recognition, and imaginative play.
In this set, you’ll get 6 wooden eggs with 6 different colored yolks inside and a wooden knife. Your kids can practice slicing each egg in half then mix them up, practice color matching or play a fun memory game.
These are also perfect for pretend kitchen play and they come with a wooden tray. These eggs will also fit in a real egg carton too, which is how we store the eggs in our play kitchen.
8. Kid’s Froggy Rain Coat
Rain? Puddles? Mud? These raincoats are not only so cute your kids will love wearing them, they’ll help you do fewer loads of laundry too!
9. Reusable Easter Stickers
Kids love stickers. My toddler loves putting stickers just about anywhere. My baby is fascinated by them too.
And you know what’s even cooler than regular stickers?
This cute pack includes 400 Reusable Easter and Spring Stickers that would be a fun addition to any Easter basket.
As a natural saver, I used to cringe when I’d watch my daughter pile sticker after sticker on the exact same spot of a page in her coloring book. But with packs like these, not only are there 400 stickers, they are reusable too!
More fun for the kids, and less cringing for money-saving moms.
10. Cute Umbrella For Rainy Days
Easter means spring showers are just around the corner. What better than a cute and practical gift like this adorable RainStoppers Umbrella with ruffles or this sports umbrella to keep your little ones dry this spring?
Plus, have you ever let your kids taken an umbrella to a splash pad in the summer? Let me tell you, kids love it! Thanks to another mom for sharing that valuable tip with me. #MomHack #You’reWelcome

11. Melissa & Doug Monster Truck Craft Kit
Oh, Melissa & Doug. Your wooden toys truly are wonderful.
I couldn’t leave this one out because I know there are many monster truck lovers out there and it’s just five bucks.
It’s an Add-on item, however, which means it only ships for free if you have an order of $25 or more. That’s why it didn’t make the list of the top 10 above, but still got a mention in the bonus section.
The Decorate Your Own Wooden Monster Truck Kit is easy to assemble and includes everything you need to help your little one create his or her very own monster truck: paints, paint brush, and stickers. Your little one can be creative painting and decorating it first then vroom it all around the house.
12. Silly Rabbit, Easter Is For Jesus Baseball Tee
If you want another way to keep the meaning of Easter focused on Jesus, this 3/4 Baseball Tee is adorable. There actually is a t-shirt with the same saying for under $10 that shipping too. Both shirts are unisex, come in sizes 2T-5/6, and say “Silly Rabbit Easter is for Jesus.”
While this baseball tee is only $6.95, the shipping puts this one slightly over $10. So this one lands in the bonus section as well.
But if you can budget for a couple dollars more and want a cute shirt that sends an important message whenever your child wears it, this the shirt for you.
