Easter is one of those holidays that is so fun with littles. I love watching Roo as she scurries around looking for Easter eggs and squeals with delight everytime she spots one. Unfortunately thecutest easter bunny ever holiday also comes with a side order of sugar. But I don’t want her to miss the fun of opening the plastic eggs to find a surprise or treat inside! I’ve compiled a list of non-candy Easter egg fillers that are appropriate for babies, toddlers, and families that like to keep the sugary treats to a minimum.

Hatchimals or other small toy

Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers

 

Easter Finger Puppet CraftEaster Finger Puppets Egg filler

  • Felt of various colors
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Sewing machine (optional)
  • Googly eyes
  • Template (get the print out FREE here)

Print the template of the Easter animals and cut out each character’s features and the base

Use the paper as a pattern to cut your felt with as many bases as you will need and the features for each animal

Sew or hot glue the base front and base back together

Hot glue the features to the front

Hot glue the googly eyes

That’s it! Place the finger puppet in a plastic Easter Egg when it’s cool

I don’t know a baby yet that isn’t facisnated with finger puppets, so it mkaes a perfect non-candy egg filler for babies. Toddlers will love playing with these too, older kids might enjoy helping you make them.

Pom-pom Bunny Craft

pom-pom bunny easter egg filler

 

  • Large to Medium Pom-poms
  • Tiny Pom-poms
  • Pipe-cleaners
  • Googly Eyes (optional if making for babies)
  • Hot glue gun

Hot glue a tiny pom-pom to the center of a large pom-pom

Bend a pipe-cleaner into two loops to create long ears

Hot glue the ears to the back of the pom-pom

If using googly eyes hot glue them above the tiny pom-pom nose. I recommend using tweezers for this, otherwise you WILL burn your fingerprints off. Don’t use the googly eyes with babies under 2, they can be pulled of easily and are still super cute even without them.

Sit the bunny in the bottom half of a plastic egg and squish down the ears with the top half. When it’s opened the ears will pop up! This will be a fun surprise for babies and toddlers love to play wth these fluffy friends. Roo loved finding these in her Easter eggs ALMOST as much as candy, so it’s a great addition to your Easter Egg fillers.
