50 + Things to Fill Easter Eggs (That Aren’t Candy)

Our family loves an Easter egg hunt. It is always fun to see the kids running through the yard rushing to find the most eggs. As a mom of a child with food allergies, it is always a challenge to find items to fill all those plastic eggs with that are not candy. Having a variety of egg sizes helps you be able to stuff all your new ideas into the eggs without frustration. Whether, like me, your child has a food allergy, or you would just like to cut down on sugar overload, here are some non-candy ideas to fill all your eggs for the annual hunt.

Small toys

There are numerous ideas for small toys that you could fill eggs with: bouncy balls, small craft items, Play-Doh, tiny cars like Micro Machines, Shopkins, whistles, mini kazoos, hand stamps, Polly Pockets, Barbie accessories, mini rubber ducks or other bath toys, finger skateboards, marbles, jacks and a ball, fake bugs and worms, pirate patches, play money, stickers, tops, Legos, sticky hands, or just for fun – confetti! When choosing small toys to fill your eggs, please consider the age of the children participating in the egg hunt. Small toys may pose a choking hazard for young children.

Something practical

Practical items can be fun too. Try filling eggs with erasers, pencil sharpeners, key chains, magic towels, cute bandaids, travel size lotion or hand sanitizer. My kids favorite practical Easter egg filler is money!
