I've picked up a couple of snacks that I'm going to use for both Easter and General Conference. So far I have some fruit leather(found at Costco), a healthier version of animal crackers, and a healthier version of yogurt covered pretzels. I like to browse our local health food stores to see what they've got. But that can also be expensive so I don't do too much. I'm planning on making a couple of their favorite healthy desserts(mini pb cookies and maybe some popcorn or peanut butter popcorn) and putting them in Easter cellophane bags as well. I was at the dollar store the other day with Elisabeth and I saw a bunch of things that could easily go in Easter baskets as well: easter egg shaped sidewalk chalk, pack of 4 bubbles, hair ties, chapstick etc. I still need to get some 100% fruit juice capri suns, which were requested by my children, and I want to come up with some fun meal and snack ideas for conference.
Here is a list a friend gave me(which I revised a little) of other non-food ideas to put in Easter baskets.
Easter Basket and Egg filler ideas besides candy
Change (nickels, dimes and quarters)
Dollar Bills (you could save this for a grand prize, the egg that is really hard to find, or a golden egg)
Anything from the dollar store that will fit
The little pills that you put in water and watch grow. Grow Caps. These were my favorite as a kid.
Seeds (plant them together when Easter is over )
Yogurt Covered Raisins or Pretzels from health food store
Hot Wheel Cars
Hair ribbons and bows
100% juice capri sun
Small containers of bubbles
Coupons (You can make them: "Good for one extra bed time story, etc...")
Legos (they have smalls sets, you could divide the pieces amongst different eggs)
Pony Tail elastics
Mini nail polish
Lip gloss/ Chap Stick
Easter Stuffed animals
Small home-made treats like mini cookies(can put in clear plastic easter bags)
