Check out all these fun Easter egg fillers for toddlers, preschoolers, and even older kids! My two toddlers are getting ready for Easter and the annual Easter egg hunt at grandma’s house this year. So my mom and I came up with the best fillers, including non-candy Easter egg fillers. 

The main thing to remember when filling Easter eggs for toddlers or any young child is to avoid choking hazards! This can be harder than you think when plastic Easter eggs are so small. But there are some great ideas out there that still work.

If the Easter Bunny is bringing some candy for Easter morning, here’s some that are better for younger kids. To avoid a sugar overload, put just one piece of candy in the little plastic eggs even if the candy is small. We try to avoid hard candies with my toddlers. 

  • Jelly Beans
  • Small Chocolate Eggs
  • Peeps
  • M & Ms 
  • Gummy Bears
