Easter is such a fun holiday. I love it! Family and friends, egg hunts, and Easter baskets. But what often comes in those Easter baskets isn’t always so great. I could do without the 10 pounds of refined sugar, thank you! I’m not saying no candy, but you know, keep it limited. Going the candy-free or close to candy-free route can get expensive though! Good toys and sugarless treats can be hard to come by, let alone at a good price. But you my friend are in luck! Here are 5 great Easter basket fillers for your little lads — and they are all under $10. Check them out!
1. Sand Toy Set
With the warmer weather well on its way, I have been thinking of fun days at the park and especially in the sand box. This adorable ice cream-inspired sand toy set would be perfect! The little ice cream cones are too cute, and if you wanted to, you could even use the bucket itself as your Easter basket! Kind of a two-for-one deal. I’m sold!

2. Egg Shades
There always has to be at least one thing that is kind of useless and provides just some fun Easter goodness, right? These egg-shaped shades come in four different colors so your kiddo is bound to like one of them. My son would want to take them all and gift them to his cousins. And I would gladly let him since you get a ton for such a low price!

3. Triangle Crayon Rings
Who says rings are for girls? These colorful rings will add a new twist to their arts and crafts time. We have gone through a couple of sets of these little rings and they are awesome. I have even used them! Besides being a lot of fun to use, they would fit perfectly into the plastic eggs to replace candy. Awesome, right?

4. Watering Can
It’s spring and the gardening around here is in full swing! There are few things cuter or sweeter in this world than a little one who is over the moon excited to help out with the chores in the yard. My son would love having his own little watering can like this green one. It even comes with some letter stickers and Easter-themed animals to decorate it with! This is what I call a win-win gift.
You can get it here for $5 from Target.
5. Jelly Bean Putty
What little boy doesn’t love to play with sticky, gooey things? I know mine does! These cute and colorful little jelly bean shaped containers are each filled with a coordinating putty for your little guy to get his hands into. Luckily, putty feels interesting and messy but isn’t actually messy. A huge bonus for us parents, right?
