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.
- Box of raisins
- Nuts/Trail mix
- Lip balm
- Mini nail polish
- Toy jewelry (bracelet, necklace, ring)
- Coins (for your child’s piggy bank)
- Magnetic letters
- Toy car (Hot Wheels)
- Little figures (My Little Pony, dinosaurs, animals)
- Silly putty or Play-doh
- Finger puppets
- Small stamps
- Beads & string (to make a necklace or bracelet)
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.
