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.

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!).

  8. This is so fabulous! Our kids eat VERY little candy so holidays like Easter and Halloween are a bit of a challenge for us!
    And every year my brother does a HUGE Easter egg hunt! I am absolutely going to be using some of these ideas this year! :)
    Thank you!
