101 Non-Candy Easter Egg Fillers Kids Will Love

Are you hoping to delight children at your annual Easter egg hunt without the sugar overload? This list of non-candy easter egg stuffers is full of great ideas that will make your little ones as happy as they’d be with an egg full of jelly beans.

These candy alternatives are also a great way to accommodate lots of kids at a school or neighborhood egg hunt, including those with food allergies or dietary restrictions.

But when planning a hunt involving kids with various allergies, non-candy Easter egg ideas are the perfect solution.

Everyone is included. Everyone is happy. Sugar-free, gluten-free, and allergy moms unite.

Of course, the non-candy items have to be stellar to compete with sugary treats!

There is something on this round-up of non-candy easter egg stuffers to satisfy every child: pretend play experts, imaginative artists, budding scientists, fashionistas, and even older kids and teens.

Which Plastic Easter Eggs are Best?

Most of these fun easter egg fillers are small items that fit in standard plastic eggs, but a few will need larger eggs like these jumbo Easter eggs. Some of the non-candy items, like Easter Egg Sidewalk Chalk and Confetti Eggs are already egg-shaped and can be hidden as-is.

A nighttime egg hunt with these Glow-in-the-Dark Plastic Easter Eggs is a huge hit with older children and teens.

“Golden” Easter Eggs are another fun twist. Use the golden eggs to hold something special, like money.

And Resurrection Eggs help you tell the Easter story.

Whichever eggs you choose, this list of non-candy fillers for your Easter egg hunt gives you plenty of ideas that will delight toddlers, little kids, big kids, and the pickiest of teens.
