50 Things To Put in Easter Eggs Instead of Candy: Chambanamoms Recommend March 21, 2018 By From The Editors “I want to know what real moms put in Easter eggs that isn’t candy. I’m tired of what Pinterest says.” That was a question posed to us via the Chambanamoms.com Facebook page last year. And boy, did you guys have answers! We’re sharing some of our favorites below. Of course, there’s always room for candy in Easter eggs. But who says we can’t dare to be different once in awhile? Plus, with so many kiddos that have food allergies and aversions, staying away from candy and food can benefit us by making more hunts accessible to anyone. For the sake of this article, we are leaving out food suggestions all together. Of course, some of these ideas may be limited to family hunts due to expense or other reasons. And some of them may be choking hazards, so beware on the ages here. Without further ado, your suggestions: – Bubbles (very popular. And easy to fit into eggs, especially the wedding kind from the dollar store). – Bubble bath – Sidewalk chalk – Slime – Paints – Tokens for the carousel at the mall – Tiny stamps – Temporary tattoos – Little post-it notes – Coins. KIDS LOVE COINS! – Dollar bills (or more if you’re so inclined). KIDS LOVE MONEY – Little cars – Magic Grow Capsules – Hair accessories ties, bows, etc. – String and beads for kids to make their own jewelry – Shopkins – Mini planes, cars, people – Pretty rocks and shells for the family fairy garden – Tokens for Jupiter’s – Swim passes – Small plastic animals (from a Toob) – Bible verses – Stickers – Bouncy balls – Take and go packs of Play-doh – Flower Seeds – Mini gardening items to help plant flowers – mini flower pots – Lip balm – Socks – Erasers – Jewelry – Fun band-aids – Balloons – Keychains – Mini Sticky hands – LEGOs – Slime – Doll accessories – Lanyards – Earbuds – Silly putty – Mini Slinky – “I try to put stuff in that’s usable and not just junk toys that clutter up the house.” – “I always buy a 24 piece puzzle (small, obviously) and put 1-2 pieces of the puzzle in each egg!” – “I do Easter Bunny trade in coupons. Each egg has a coupon. For example. A date night with mommy or daddy. A trip to get ice cream. A trip to Skateland. A trip to the Orpheum, etc.” What would you add? And where is your favorite source?
