The husband and I are both candy-aholics, but that is not something we want to impart on our children… if we can help it. Titan is two this year, which means that he is going to care about what is in his Easter eggs (unlike last year, when he liked the eggs themselves more than what was inside of them) and I’ve been stressing what to put in his eggs since he doesn’t really know what candy is, yet, and I’d like to keep it that way. I’m pretty excited about my finds, so I thought I would share!
- Bunny Grahams – this is the only edible item that is going to make it into my boy’s Easter eggs, but aren’t they just adorable? He only gets them when he goes to Grandma’s house, so I think he’ll be pretty thrilled to have some at home
- Stickers – idea credit: my cousin. Titan loves cars and he loves stickers, so this should be the perfect combo. We will just cut them out individually and put them in his eggs.
- Baby chicks – I mean, could these be any more adorable? I figure I will save them with the Easter decorations and we can play with them every year, for as long as they last, haha.
- Finger Puppets – perfect egg size, and will encourage imaginative play time and fine motor skills. And these ones are only 10 for $5 at Ikea.
- Pom poms – also great for toddler play, and Titan LOVES them. There are like a million ways to play with them and use them for learning on Pinterest. Plus, you can get them at your local dollar store.
Hope your toddlers are all delighted with their non-candy eggs! Also, comment with any other suggestions you might have!
