Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers For Toddlers

Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers For Toddlers

One thing that I love about Easter is filling my toddler’s plastic eggs with goodies. And I’m sure it’s the same for every mum. However, you soon realize that it’s impossible to fill every egg with candies and jelly beans. They contain loads of sugar which makes it an extremely unhealthy option for your kiddos. So, over the years I have been able to come up with interesting non-candy Easter egg fillers that won’t give your toddler a sugar rush or make their excitement fade away. Here we go!
