Easter Egg Fillers That Aren’t Junk
Easter is one of my favorite holidays.
For our family Easter is a signal that spring has begun and that soon we will be spending our days outside and enjoying the sunshine again.
Over the years we have introduced a number of simple Easter traditions that our kids love.
Can you guess their favorite?
That’s right! The Easter Egg hunt.
This year we are doing a combination of the classic real eggs and plastic fillable eggs.
Last year my mom purchased a large bag of plastic Easter eggs during a post-holiday sale. As much as possible, I try to reduce the amount of plastic waste my family creates so this wasn’t something that I would normally buy.
Now that we have them, I want to put them to good use. I also plan to keep them and re-use them year after year.
Since we also try to live minimally, I also don’t want to put a bunch of junk inside the eggs that my kids won’t even appreciate. I am not a huge fan of plastic trinkets that really don’t have a purpose.
Generally, I look for items that are consumable or clutter-free. Meaning they will be used and I won’t have to find a place to store or organize them.
On that note I have been brainstorming ideas about what I can use to fill the Easter eggs this year.
I did my best to find ideas for toddlers, kids, tweens and adults.
Here is what I have come up with so far:
Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers
We all know that kids love candy, but it’s important to keep it limited if possible. In our family we tend to skip out on the sugar treats at Easter because we know the kids are going to be getting plenty from their classroom parties and grandparents.
If you are looking for something other than candy to put inside the eggs, here are some great ideas:
3. Sidewalk Chalk Eggs
6. Tenzi Dice (I put a few of these in each egg to make a full set)
8. Friendship Bracelets
13. Hot Wheels
15. Fidget Toys
Useful Easter Egg Fillers
Everyone from kids to adults love receiving gifts that they will actually be able to use. Easter is no exception. These practical and useful Easter Egg stuffers will be appreciated by everyone.
18. Pencil Sharpener
19. Fun Band-aids
23. USB Drive
24. Essential Oils
25. Scrunchies (Hair Ties)
26. Face Masks
28. Mini Lotions
30. Nail Clippers
31. Mini Flashlight
Creative Easter Egg Stuffers
32. Play-Doh Minis
34. Flower Seeds
35. Mini Tegu Blocks
36. Washi Tape
37. Embroidery Thread for Friendship Bracelets
38. Mini Puzzles (It’s fun to split the pieces between the eggs)
39. Coupons for privileges at home (pick a movie to watch or which restaurant to eat at).
Edible Easter Egg Fillers
We all know that kids love snacks, treats and sweets. Especially at Easter time.
But here’s the deal:
I am ok with a few treats, but I am not about to fill their entire Easter basket and all their Easter Eggs with jelly beans and Peeps!
At the same time, I love edible Easter egg fillers because they are clutter-free consumables (meaning the kids eat them and the mess is gone!)
Below I have tried to include a variety of ideas that are both sweet and savory that you kids will enjoy.
43. Gummy Bears
46. Gummy Worms
48. Jelly Beans
49. Mini Pretzels
50. Pink Popcorn
It would even be fun to mix a bunch of these together to make a sort of snack mix to fill the Easter Eggs.
There you have it mama! Tons of awesome ideas to stuff those Easter Eggs this year!
We hope you enjoyed this list of ideas to put in your family’s Easter Eggs this year. From toys to toiletries there is something for everyone on this list.
More Fun Easter Ideas:
What do you fill a toddler Easter egg with?
Many of the items listed above are perfect for toddlers.
You just want to be very careful that you avoid anything that would be a choking hazard. For example small toys, coins and balloons should not be given to small children.
I highly recommend you use the Safety First Small Object Choking Tester on any toys/parts you have in your home for peace of mind.
Also certain foods like popcorn should be avoided.

I am so glad you asked! I actually created an entire post that has a ton of great ideas for Easter Egg stuffers that are perfect for teens, tweens and big kids.
What do you put in Easter Eggs for Adults?
I am a firm believer that adults are just big kids, and for the most part enjoy receiving gifts just as much as anyone else.
Even I would be happy to include many of the items on this list during an Easter Egg Hunt for adults.
Some other fun ideas might include mini bottles of alcohol, money and lottery tickets.
