Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers for All Ages

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love coloring Easter eggs, though I would not recommend an Easter egg decorating kit that calls for crayon shavings. Stay away…stay far away! I also like getting together with family. I usually make my delicious ham recipe, that my daughter goes absolutely crazy for. Check out the recipe…you still have time to gather the ingredients. It’s a super easy slow cooker recipe! But most of all, I love the fact that my family is Eastern Orthodox so our Easter is celebrated (usually) after Easter that western churches celebrate. So you know what that means?!? 90% off Easter basket fillers!! Love it!


Out of the 10 years that I’ve been a mom, I think I only put candy in the plastic Easter eggs three times. I will admit, candy is so easy to pick up and stuff those eggs with, but below is a list of other quick and easy things you can stuff the plastic Easter eggs with!
