This post is sponsored by, however, all opinions are 100% my own.

Wondering what to put in your child's Easter basket this year? Check out these 5 children's Easter Basket filler ideas that most kids are sure to enjoy.

One of my favorite local stores to shop at is Kmart as it's a great place to save money on groceries and other odds and ends you need for the home. With Easter just around the corner, Kmart is also a good place to shop to save time and money on getting the perfect items to fill your kid's Easter basket. Here are some all-time favorites for Easter Baskets that you cand find at Kmart and your kids are sure to love.

5 Children's Easter Basket Filler Ideas

1. Candy - Candy is something that kids always look forward to finding in their Easter basket, especially chocolate. Right now at Kmart you can get an Easter 6-pack Candy or Lindt Gold Bunny on sale for $2.50 through 4/8/17. Starting 4/9 - 4/15/17 you'll be able to get Easter Packaged Chocolates on sale for $1.50.

2. Books - A lot of kids really enjoy reading so including a new book is often a happy discovery to find in an Easter Basket. Kmart just happens to sell Little Golden Books which have been a kid favorite for years.

3. Pencils or Pens - What child doesn't enjoy being an artist or at least coloring pictures? Pens, pencils, crayons or markers are always a popular Easter Basket choice. Don't forget the coloring books or drawing pads to go with them!

4. Stuffed Animals - Most kids can never have too many stuffed animals. As such, I like to include a small stuffed animal in the Easter basket. I like choosing one of their favorite animals or one with an Easter theme like a bunny or baby duck.

5. Small Toys - Spring is a time to celebrate getting back outside or going on a spring break vacation. So, I like to include some small toys for the kids to enjoy on the vacation or while traveling there. Some ideas include travel-size games, sand box or beach toys, or bubble maker toys.

If your kids tend to get a bit messy enjoying Easter and their baskets you can also earn 25% In Points with a $10+ of Smart Sense Food & Drug Products at Kmart through 5/1/17. This includes things like paper towels, dish detergent and more.
