  • How about dollar bills? You wouldn't have to put them in all just a few,, big prize when they find it,, LOL! No candy ever? You also could put those little boxes of raisins in an egg.

  • There isn't much that can fit in an egg and that isn't candy..... I put change in my son's eggs.

  • I don't give candy to my son because his grandparents are all the time doing it. My daughter doesn't even like candy which is a good thing.

  • My ex's family used to put coins in the eggs.

    How about some fun shaped crackers? Or maybe some fruit snacks? They make toddler ones that are easier to chew. I like the sticker idea as well.

  • Stickers, our Target had some little sesame street figures in their dollar spot that would fit in an egg. Plastic jewlery the beaded ones on a string might fit.

  • Money also check out what stores have in they're Easter bins. I am sure they have somethings. That is really tough to think of since the egg was meant for candy. I really wish I could help you out more! Good luck hun!

  • I have the same issue! my son does not have any candy at all and we put little things of fruit in eggs, like dried fruit or little fruit snacks. sometimes little toys (balls etc. just not small enough to choke on which is kinda hard to find but possible! :) ) good luck!
