10 Non-Candy Items to Fill Your Easter Eggs

Easter's coming up quick, quick, quick.  Here I am thinking it's great that Easter is so late this year, giving me extra time to think and plan.  But wait!  It's now the second week of April and Easter's almost here.  So if you're looking for an alternative to the standard candy filled egg hunt, here are some ideas to help get you started:

Money--This one's my favorite.  A few rolls of quarters, dimes, and nickels and the kids will love hunting for some change.

Trail Mix--You can pick up some ready made mix or make your own.  I love making a mix of cranberries, white chocolate, and pumpkin seeds.

Stickers--The Dollar Tree carries a huge variety of stickers from seasonal to character.  And they make a great filler for Easter eggs.

Cheddar Bunnies--My little ones love goldfish and cheddar bunnies are a fun seasonal treat.  Plus they're not loaded with sugar.

Legos--My eight year old is obsessed with Legos and they make a great addition to an egg hunt.

Balloons-- Punch balloons, water balloons, party balloons... they're all great ideas for filling Easter eggs.

Bracelets--My daughter loves getting little bracelets, rings and jewels so they make a fun addition to Easter egg hunting.

Playdoh--Homemade playdoh or small containers... what a fun idea!

Bubbles--Dollar Tree carries small containers of wedding bubbles that fill perfectly in an Easter egg.

Cars--Again, dollar store has a great selection for little boys.

Really I'm probably going to pick up a variety of all of these for Easter this year.  We have a variety of ages and genders and it should be fun to see the surprised looks on their faces.
