Easter Egg Fillers That Aren’t Candy


by Rachel Wells

Easter egg hunts are such a fun spring tradition, and it’s almost time to get those baskets and plastic eggs ready. Instead of filling your eggs with candy or trinkets that will eventually end up in a landfill, why not fill them with fun surprises that are unique, useful, and just as sweet to open up.

This list of 30 non-candy Easter egg fillers should give you plenty of ideas for small items that will fit in eggs, and are good for a wide variety of ages.

We hope this is an egg-cellent resource for you!
