What To Put In Plastic Easter Eggs (Besides Candy)

Pin It!

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.
