Who’s looking for some fun ideas for filling your kids Easter Baskets that are NOT just candy? Between having Grandparents that give them Easter Candy as well as Aunts and Uncles that have huge Easter Egg Hunts with so much candy in the eggs they can never eat it all, I am always looking for NON-Candy Easter Egg Filler ideas.  I came up with 25 great ideas that will help you get your eggs filled in now time!  If you don’t have any of these – use coins!  My kids love to get money in their Easter eggs too!

25 Fun Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers

  1. Stickers; you can pick up sheets of stickers any place.  Cut them apart and fill several eggs with them
  2. Chap stick; this is not only not candy but a practical filler.  My boys need this during the winter.  My boys love Burt’s Bee’s so I spoil them with it at Easter.
  3. Lip gloss
  4. Nail polish
  5. Temporary Tattoos
  6. Fun Band aides; I rarely buy the character ones so my kids would love those!
  7. Bouncy Balls
  8. Pokemon Cards
  9. Grow Capsules – These are those capsules you put in water and they turn into a little sponge that’s shaped in something fun!  
  10. Seed Packets; kids love to plant things and watch them grow.  Using a Pot as a basket and doing a gardening theme.
  11. Lego’s; buy a small Lego set and divide it among many eggs
  12. Fun Erasers
  13. New Crayons
  14. Hot Wheels
  15. Play Jewelry
  16. Coins or Dollars
  17. Balloons
  18. Hair Clips for girls
  19. Clues {make a treasure hunt for the basket)
  20. Movie Tickets
  21. Mini Bubbles – What kid doesn’t love bubbles!! 
  22. Natural Fruit Snacks
  23. Coupons {Good for Extra Screen Time, stay up late}
  24. Mini Flash Light – This is probably my little guys favorite thing to get.  He loves having flashlights when he makes camping bags for the summer. 
  25. New Ear Buds
Happy Filling!

    Hi Chrissy! Thanks so much for coming to visit at Burlap and Buttons. I love when comments lead me back to other GREAT blogs! The funny thing is I had totally seen this 25 things post on pinterest and pinned it earlier today. Small world! Anyway, glad to be following along and thanks again for saying hi over at my blog too. Enjoy your week!

    all great ideas girl! I'm the same way.. I don't do lots of candy. No big bunnies here! Not because I don't believe kids shouldn't have candy but because honestly, Nick really doesn't eat a lot of it. This year I went to 5 below and picked up some craft kits. I also got a few small “toys” at Target! Make sure you post a picture of the baskets all put together:)
