When the bunny comes hopping by your home this Easter, don’t despair that your child’s teeth will be rotten by church time. While Peeps, Cadbury Eggs, and Reece’s Pieces in carrot shape might be tradition, there are plenty of other great Easter basket stuffers on the shelves. Tuck plenty of these ideas into the plastic grass and your child will never notice the lack of jellybeans.
