One of the things I enjoy about Easter is the Easter Egg-hunt that we do for our girls. While we enjoy attending Easter egg hunting activities in our community and church , we love to do our very own Easter egg hunt. I remember when Lucy was younger , we prepared an Easter egg hunt for her in the park. We also did a couple here at home , both of our girls enjoyed it! We filled their eggs with candy treats and non candy treats. Giving treats may be an issue with parents of kids with allergies. Some parents just prefer to NOT give candies to their kids.
Truthfully, I really do not mind filling the eggs with candies. Some of it. Moderation.. so to speak. Luckily , there are tons of small things and toys that you can use to fill the eggs up. You can buy it in bulk ( amazon or oriental trading) , you can also pick them up at your local party store! Most of the items below can also be found at Dollar Tree . If you do not have a Dollar Tree store or .99 cents store near you , I have provided links through Amazon. You can sign up for Amazon prime , free 30 day trial to get free two day shipping. If you wish to not continue the subscription, you can cancel it anytime. You can read why I love Amazon Prime subscription, HERE.
