15 Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers Ideas
The first time I hosted an Easter egg hunt for my kiddos and their friends, I filled their eggs with candy for the most part. Some of the kids actually wanted to see more toys within the eggs which I thought was surprising not to mention that a bit of the candy went to waste (though there were no Skittles or Starburst left over!).
This year, I want to do more toys than candy (though plenty of Easter goodies will be available on the dessert table). Since I planned on having eight kids over for an egg hunt, I stuffed about 200 eggs with the following:
1. Hot Wheels
2. Mini Playdough
3. Kaleidoscope (Walmart)
4. Bubble Rings (Walmart)
5. Markers (Walmart)
7. Fuzzy Chicks (Hobby Lobby)
8. Easter Rubber Ducks (Oriental Trading)
10. Toy Dinosaurs/Bugs/Lizards (Walmart)
11. Easter Egg Silly Putty (Walmart/Oriental Trading)
12. Mini Easter Maze Stampers (Oriental Trading)
13. Bouncy Balls
14. Wrist Bands (Walmart/Oriental Trading)
Side note: I had ordered a pack of 48 sticky frogs from Oriental Trading (that's just the number available in one package). The frogs were a lot smaller than what I would have guessed. I have a quarter next to one as an example. I would not order these again. If they were 2-3x the size then they would have been perfect but as they are, I think they could get confused with gummy candy or they're just not big enough.
I am so excited for my kiddos this year. I think they are really going to enjoy the Easter eggs because of the variety. Of course I do have some eggs stuffed with candy but not such an overwhelming amount as the first time around (sweets is just what you get with a momma who loves to bake!).
