  • Jewelry, sunglasses, hats and hair items
  • Key chains, toy cars or other collectibles

  • "Bunny Money" redeemable for something of their choice
  • Gift cards, coins or dollars
Easter crafts

Some candy companies now make allergy-friendly Easter candies and Easter baskets including Vermont Nut Free, Indie Candy, Surf Sweets, Divvies, and Premium Chocolatiers. As always, verify allergen statements with each company to make sure any candy is safe for your child's unique allergy issues.
