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.

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:
What do you fill a toddler Easter egg with?
Many of the items listed below 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.
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.
Yogurt covered raisins
Cookie Crisp Cereal
Fruit By the Foot
It would even be fun to mix a bunch of these together to make a sort of snack mix to fill the Easter Eggs.
Mini Toys for Easter Eggs
Easter Egg Fillers for Tweens and Teens
Chapstick or Lipgloss
What do you put in Easter Eggs for Adults?
Compact Reusable Tote
There you have it mama! Tons of awesome ideas to stuff those Easter Eggs this year!
