Non Candy Options for Easter Eggs

Non Candy Options for Easter Eggs

Get ready to hop into the Easter spirit because the egg-citement is just around the corner! My children love egg hunts but it is tough to get into the spirit of egg hunting knowing they are going to beg for just one more jelly bean as the day goes on. We have had lots of fun finding other items that fit in Easter Eggs so that kids can still enjoy the hunt but without the sugar crash at the end. Check out our non candy options for easter eggs below!

When my oldest daughter was two, we bought extra large eggs and stuffed them with Sesame Street characters and Daniel Tiger characters. It was so fun for her that we did egg hunts all spring  – hiding the eggs and characters around the yard like a toddler version of hide and seek.
