Are you on the hunt for non-candy alternatives For Easter Egg Filler? It’s less than a month to Easter festivities; the kids will be off from school in two weeks which gives me less than 10 days to get their Easter basket and prep for our Easter egg hunt. Last year, Americans spent an estimated $2.1 Billion on Easter Candy. That’s an insane amount of sugar in our system if you ask me. Every year, I vow to be different and limit the amount of candy that gets circulated. We’re still recovering from Valentine’s day sugar rush, hence, this years non-candy treats to make the kids Easter egg hunt more fun without the sugar overload. So if you’re looking for non-candy alternatives for Easter egg filler, you’re in luck.
Here are ten non-candy alternatives for Easter Egg Filler
- Socks. Summer camp is a few months away. Socks are useful, and you can roll it up tightly to fit in a medium sized egg.
