Candy-Free Easter Egg Filler Ideas

If you are looking for something other than candy to fill your plastic Easter eggs this year, here are some fun options. Some of these items may pose as a choking hazard. Please keep in mind, your child’s age.


Remember to wash the plastic eggs with hot soapy water and let air-dry before filling them with food items.

Plastic eggs are available at many stores such as Walmart, Party City, and dollar stores. I bought a pack of 24 small eggs for $2 from the Real Canadian Superstore. Not all the items on the above list fit in those ones.

Some other fun items to include in your Easter baskets are: a skipping rope, a pair of rainboots, sidewalk chalk, a big container of bubbles, bubble wands, colouring book, and a pack of crayons.
