Easter is almost here and it’s time to get ready for the Easter egg hunt (if you haven’t done so already). If you’re like me and running a little late don’t worry because there’s still time and if you don’t have time to go Easter shopping, there’s always Amazon. Sometimes I wonder what I’d do without Amazon. Haha! Thank you 2 day free shipping!
This year I have to get ready for 2 Easter egg hunts: one with our friends and one at the grandparents. For both Easter egg hunts I will be using Eco Friendly Easter Eggs because these are the only non-toxic eggs I’ve found, plus they are fully compostable. Since they are a little pricey I saved mine from last year and will be reusing those this year. I love that they are also bigger than your regular plastic Easter eggs so I can fit bigger items.
The Easter egg hunt at my mother’s in law house will be only for our daughter so I can put in those eggs whatever I want but the one at our friend’s house has to be filled with toys because all kids seem to have different food restrictions/allergies. However, as you might have suspected I’m not a big fan of candy so my daughter will only be getting Annie’s Homegrown Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks or YumEarth Organic Fruit Snacks on 2 of her eggs, the rest of them will be filled with non-edible items.
Fillers for Easter eggs:
- Easter Egg Stampers: I love that these stampers are egg shaped and the reviews are great!
- Safari Ltd Farm Babies TOOB: My daughter will be getting 2 of these in each egg because she loves farm animals but if you’re looking for something a little more Easterish, check these out: Safari Ltd Piglets and Bunnies TOOB.
- Easter Stickers: Who doesn’t love stickers? My daughter seems to be obsessed with them. There are so many stickers here I can cut them out and put some in every egg.
- Finger puppets: I really liked these animals but if you live near an Ikea you can also get a set of 10 there.
- Wind Up Fuzzy Chick: This little chick will make an appearance during our family Easter egg hunt.
- Flipping Wind-up Lady Bugs: I still haven’t decided if I’ll do these but my daughter has one of these lady bugs and is obsessed with it. She loves seeing it flipping backwards.
What are you putting in your Easter eggs this year? Any other non-candy ideas?
