Those who know me know that I love holidays. Like, really really love holidays. Crafts, treats, family, overall celebrating… Ah, music to my ears! So with Easter just around the corner I’m in full planning mode for this year’s celebration(s).

Each holiday I strive to provide some creative alternatives to celebrating overwhelming amounts of candy. Easter alone comes with jelly beans, Reese eggs, Cadbury bunny eggs, marshmallow Peeps, robin eggs… The list goes on and on, whew! And while I let the kids have candy occasionally, honestly, I end up eating the majority of the junk food we… err, the Easter bunny… gives them.

That’s why this year at our Easter egg hunts, a family favorite at my house, we’ll be using a majority of fun, non-candy items in the eggs!

Here are 20 EGG-cellent ideas to fill eggs with for your kids.

1. Bubbles
2. Little People figures
3. Temporary tattoos
4. Small Matchbox cars
5. Nail polish
6. Army men
7. Stickers
8. A 24 PC Puzzles, one piece per egg
9. Bouncy balls
10. Hair bows
11. Fruit snacks
12. Socks
13. Lip gloss
14. Character band aids
15. Grow Caps – those tiny ‘pills’ that grow when you put them in water
16. Sidewalk chalk
17. Plastic bugs

20. Clues. For kids who are old enough, set up an egg treasure hunt!
