What to stuff inside Easter Eggs for the big Hunt
Are you stuck for ideas on what to put inside those tiny plastic eggs for your big Spring Easter Egg Hunt? Trying to avoid loading your kids up with sacks of sweets just to make their egg hunt “interesting”?
Back in the good ol’ days, we decorated hard boiled eggs that the Easter Bunny would hide for us. He’d leave a basket of candy our kitchen table. Then parents decided no one wanted to eat a potential salmonella bomb, and the real eggs went right back into the fridge.
What to put in your Plastic Egg
Plastic eggs are great for food safety, but what the heck do you put in them?? For the longest time I resorted to small candies and coins. The kids loved emptying their egg loot into a basket, but it was pretty repetitive.
“Candy!” Dump. “Candy!” Dump. “Um, more candy?” Dump.
This year the Easter Bunny is going to take things up a notch and put INTERESTING goodies in those eggs!
