Hoping to make your Easter eggs candy-free this year? Looking for some healthy, but fun alternatives for your toddler?
Easter egg hunts are a blast for toddlers, But, the sugar crash after math isn’t so great for us parents. Plus, if you’re like me, then you probably try to avoid artificial additives and preservatives as much as possible. So what can you fill your toddler’s Easter eggs with that both you and your toddler will approve of?
In this post, we’ll cover over 30 different non-candy Easter egg fillers that are perfect for toddlers.
30+ Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers for Toddlers
Here are 30 of the best candy-free Easter egg fillers for toddlers. Some of these are small, so please use your best judgement and supervision. You know your toddler best.
Other items on this list, may require a bit larger Easter eggs than the standard. Amazon does carry 7″ Jumbo Eggs, if you can’t find any in your area.
Add a little sweet with some fresh fruit. Blueberries are always a huge hit with my kiddos, but you could also use blackberries, cutie slices, or cut up a few grapes.
Soft headbands fold up nicely to stuff your toddler’s Easter eggs. Adorable option for girls.
4.) Stickers, Stickers, and More Stickers
Can’t go wrong with stickers. Grab some sheets at your local dollar store, and cut out small strips to place in the eggs.
7.) Favorite Cereal
Another great alternative to candy is your toddler’s favorite cereal. Or maybe something a little sweeter that they don’t get too often. I plan to put a few organic Coco Bunnies in my toddler’s eggs this year.
10.) Mini Pretzels
Non-GMO mini pretzels are another great healthy snack to use in place of candy.
What’s life without some music? Place these egg shakers inside some Jumbo eggs or hide them as they are!
13.) Sidewalk Chalk
You should be able to find some egg shaped sidewalk chalk at your local Dollar Tree. A perfect activity while we head into the warmer weather.
So, I’m not a total Debbie downer. I do let my kiddos have little treats every now and then. My littles love these Annie’s fruit snacks, and I love that they’re free of artificial flavors, synthetic colors, preservatives, and high-fructose corn syrup. Win win for everyone!
Fill your toddler’s Easter eggs with nature’s candy…raisins. You could also use other dried fruits, like mangos, peaches, and banana chips.
I mean, who doesn’t like money? My toddler loves getting coins and placing them in her piggy bank. Again, use your best judgment on whether you trust your toddler with such small objects.
If your toddler loves to build, then these First Bricks Duplo Legos would be the perfect filler for their Easter eggs. Find them all and then help your toddler build a fish, helicopter, duck, or whatever else they may come up with.
22.) Planting Seeds
Grab a few packets of seeds that will be great to plant in the spring. We tend to use marigolds, as they’re easy to grow in containers.
25.) Peanut Butter Crackers
Peanut butter crackers also make a nice little treat to eat. Savory and sweet, but still healthy.
Slinkys are a classic, and these miniature ones are perfect for traveling, gift bags, and Easter eggs.
28.) Bouncy Balls
My little man loves socks, (he takes after his dad that way) so we grabbed him some new no-slip ones to stuff in his Easter eggs this year.
Got a superhero fan on your hands? Fold up some various masks and let your little get into some pretend play.
31.) Putty or Slime
Your little girl will love playing dress up with some stylish new bracelets. Plus, they’re just super cute on those little wrists of theirs. You could even use silicone teething bracelets for younger toddlers.
I hope this list has given you some great ideas on what to fill your toddler’s Easter eggs with this year besides candy.
You can ditch the sugar and preservatives and still provide your little with tons of healthy Easter fun.
Have a great Easter!
