Easter Inspiration - 36 Sugar Free Easter egg fillers

It’s inevitable that with a celebrated occasion like Easter that there is ALOT of sugar on offer for the kids.  It seems there are aisles dedicated to Easter in every store, and that’s just in January! Marshmallow treats, chocolate bunnies, eggs in every size colour, flavour and favourite TV character imaginable.  They say everything in moderation so this Easter why not try reducing the sugar overload when organising your Easter egg hunt by trying some of these sugar free Easter egg alternatives.  Now I’m not suggesting a completely sugar free Easter, I'm not that deluded silly to know that there will inevitably be chocolate on offer for Miss 2.5. I’m just saying there are other options out there for your Easter egg hunt which are toddler-friendly and fun.  Plastic eggs can be bought from most dollar stores and filled with relatively inexpensive treats.  Try these different ideas for each age group.

It’s up to you if you would like to take your little one on an Easter egg hunt around the garden, if you have an older child then it might be nice to have both of them hunting for eggs.  A little bit of teamwork on the older children’s part might be nice in helping their younger sibling find their eggs.
