  • Write a little 5 minute filler on a piece of paper and place it in a plastic egg. Open one each day or whenever you have 5 minutes. Ex: Name things that begin with b (hence bunny). Name things that hop. Name animals that have fur. Name your favorite candy. etc.

  • This might be weird, but Menards has Lava Lamps for just $5.99 each. I bought the granddaughters each one for Easter this year. The cool thing is, they have a rebate for $4.99. So, in essence, you pay $1.00 each.

  • Mine are really into yogurt raisins right now. Depending on the age, chalk, balloons, and bubbles are always a hit.

  • Our tradition has always been the biggest box of crayons they make, coloring books and puzzle books.

  • I usually try to put a couple of books in. Last year, it was a Dora the Explorer Easter egg hunt book and a coloring book. Often a small stuffed animal, then things like bubbles, stickers, or new crayons. I put candy in plastic eggs and hide them in fairly easy places throughout the house for my daughter to find and add to the basket, but I try to make it not all about candy. I want to find some good maze books this year, since she's really into mazes right now, and I bought a personalized book in which animals bring letters to spell out her first, middle, and last name.
