Great ideas! :) I know Charlotte loves chocolate, but I need other things to fill her basket besides sugar. Thanks for the suggestions, Colleen!

GREAT suggestions! I plan on getting Scarlett one chocolate bunny or kinder eggs but then the rest I want to be non-candy items. I'm definitely pinning this one! :)

great list! I'm doing a small chocolate bunny, but the rest are usually coloring books, crayons/chalk, bubbles, and some other $1 items. I got a jump rope and play pearl bracelet, might try to find a cute little stuffed animal for each girl too.
