One of my favorite Easter traditions is doing an Easter egg hunt with the kids. I don't like to use chocolate eggs (which would be inadvisable anyway now we have a dog). But I do think that there are some really fun non-candy alternatives which can be put in plastic eggs.
What To Put In Plastic Easter Eggs
I've roughly broken my suggestions into three categories so you can tailor it to the interests of your child. (In case you are wondering what I'm putting in our eggs this year, the answer is mostly Lego!).
Jigsaw puzzle (can split over several eggs)
Wind up toys
Mini Water Gun
Magic grow toys
Barbie or Polly Pocket accessories
Star Wars beanz
Mini tubes of bubbles
Pirate eye patch
Fun snaps (a.k.a Whipper Snappers or Snaps)
Glitter/ glitter glue
Packs of seeds
Small magnifying glass
Funky shoe laces
Small nail polish
Novelty band aids
Bonus suggestion: Easter jokes. This printable will be available on Thursday. :-)
Any more suggestions? Leave me comment!
