Mamas, it’s almost Easter! I know, time flies. Just thinking about loads of plastic Easter eggs stuffed with candy is giving me nightmares. Therefore, I present to you this blog post highlighting all of the best non candy easter egg fillers! Easter egg stuffers do not have to be candy or plastic junk. I repeat, Easter egg stuffers do NOT have to be candy or plastic junk. Plastic eggs are bad enough as it is because so many of them are just discarded every single year (can we please re-use these things, mamas? Let’s make a pact, for real.). Okay, let’s jump in and get to the list of non-candy easter egg fillers.

Pro Tip: Get this bin now so you can store your plastic eggs for next year and you won’t be tempted to throw them out! Label it: Easter Eggs. Done. You’re saving yourself future money and helping the environment. Good job, you.

Here’s a huge list of the non-candy easter egg filler ideas:

Some of these ideas will fit in regular Easter egg sizes, and others may need to go in jumbo easter eggs. I’ve tried to include ideas that are great for little kids and big kids, eggs of different sizes (regular sized eggs, medium-sized eggs and larger eggs). I tried to avoid sugary treats like jelly beans and those other typical candy Easter ideas. Easter can be just as fun without the sugar overload! I did include a few special treats like dark chocolate.
