I like chocolate as much as the next girl (probably quite a bit more than the next girl actually), but my kids end up with SO MUCH CANDY these days! I can’t believe how much they get at school. I mean, it’s nearly Easter, and they still have candy left from Valentine’s Day. So I thought it would be a good idea to find some non-candy Easter egg filler ideas, so we can still have the fun of an Easter egg hunt without even more sugar (and yes, they’ll definitely get some candy too!). Read on for 63 ideas of things to put in Easter eggs that aren’t candy.

Please note: I’ve linked all the items straight to Amazon to make it easy for you to order anything you’re interested in, but also check the dollar store and your local big box stores since some items may be available there in smaller quantities. I’ve done my best to ensure all these items will fit in a plastic Easter egg, although you’ll see that some are marked (large egg) meaning you’ll need bigger than normal eggs for those items. Please note that not all items are suitable for very young children, so use your best judgement. Links are affiliate links. Thanks!
