If you’ve been on the hunt for some alternative Easter gift ideas and activities for the kids that don’t involve chocolate, then you’ve come to the right place! There are many reasons to swap out the choccie this Easter – from intolerances to lifestyle decisions, and little bubs who aren’t ready for a taste just yet. And while it’s certainly a time worth celebrating, you don’t have to go overboard – a special gift or two will have them smiling from ear-to-ear and create family memories for years to come. So, pop on your bunny ears, hop down to your local Stockland centre, and you’ll discover everything you need to make this Easter a great one.
Easter sleepwear & pyjamas
A fantastic way to make each Easter special is to create a family tradition. So, in 2021, why not start by picking up a pair of cosy bunny pyjamas to get the kids excited the night before. Considering our Australian Christmas’ are warm ones, we don’t get to indulge in the cosiness of festive jammies like they do in the movies. Which is why we love that the kids can jump into their snuggly Easter PJs at this time of year!

Easter craft, books, decor & toys
The wonderful thing about kids is their ability to turn something ordinary into something magical, using only their imagination. Like an Easter hunt! Watching their little eyes light up as you countdown, ‘3,2,1 – go!’ are memories you’ll cherish forever.
Want to hold a non chocolate Easter hunt? Start the long weekend by holding a crafternoon where they decorate their own eggs using the DIY egg painting kit from Bed Bath N’ Table. Make the holiday even more special with a bedtime story ‘The Little Rabbit Who Lost Her Hop’ by Jedda Robaard. Then come Easter Sunday, hide the treasures in the backyard and hand them a bunny basket from Kmart to collect their bounty. The ultimate prize? Finding the Easter bunny’s helper (a plush toy from Target). The winner gets to have the first of the yummy shortbread cookies, recipe here.
