30 Food Free Easter Egg Fillers

Posted on April 02 2020

Easter is just around the corner.  I feel like it snuck up on me this year.  How is it April already?  Luckily, I still have time to plan a fun Easter egg hunt that is food free!  My son has food allergies, so for me, I’m always on the look out for fun, food free “treats”, no matter what the occasion is.  Even if your child doesn’t have food allergies, you probably have your own reason for going food free.

Start planning the Easter egg hunt by deciding what will go in the plastic Easter eggs.  You can either go with a theme or mix it up.  For example, if your theme is Legos or puzzle pieces, then simply put a few pieces in each plastic Easter egg.  If you are mixing it up, then there will be something different in each Easter egg.  Once you have decided, simply fill them up!

Soon it will be Easter day and it’s time to set up everything.  Hide the Easter eggs either inside or outside (depending on the weather).  Put signs near the Easter eggs as clues to where they are hidden.  For example, signs could say “This Way ->”, “Look Up” or “Around the Corner”.  Once everything is in place, it’s time for the Easter egg hunt to begin!

To help you out, I’ve put together a list of 30 food free items that you can put in plastic Easter eggs.

  1. Legos
  2. Play coins
  3. Stickers
  4. Erasers
  5. Marbles
  6. Craft supplies
  7. Finger puppets
  8. Certificates
  9. Temporary tattoos
  10. Seashells
  11. Pine cones
  12. Crayons
  13. Hot wheels cars
  14. Rings
  15. Earrings
  16. Plastic bugs
  17. Key chain
  18. Marbles
  19. Movie tickets
  20. Rubber stamps

  29. Bouncy balls
  30. Balloons


Bonus: Here’s one more idea for you – put pictures of Easter eggs in the plastic Easter eggs!  Simply print out some drawings of Easter eggs and put one in each plastic Easter egg.  Hide the eggs and let the hunt begin!  Afterwards, the kids can colour the Easter egg pictures.
