Our son is almost 18 months old and he is excited about Easter and Easter egg hunts this year! We’ve already been to a local one geared for young kids. While he had a good time I didn’t feel comfortable giving him the treats IN the eggs (think Now and Laters and Tootsie Rolls) so I started to think about things I could fill his eggs with that he can enjoy. So I wanted to share in case this post can be helpful to other moms and dads (and grandparents!) out there.
- Finger puppets
I found these cute little finger puppets at Walmart (like these) to put in to larger eggs.
- Animal Crackers
- Dried Yogurt dots
- Dried fruit
Our son has a deep love affair with dried cranberries and raisins
- Matchbox cars
Really the ideas are limitless! I even tried stuff a little soft plush toy into one of the bigger eggs!
