I am so excited for this year’s Easter egg hunt! My son, who is 20 months old, is at the age where is he loves opening and closing doors, containers with lids, toilet seats, cabinets, bottles with caps, etc. Just about anything with a hinge or a lid is like the coolest thing in the world to him. If only his standards weren’t inevitably going to change!
I know the egg hunt is going to be a hit, and he’s going to have a blast picking up the eggs and throwing them in his duck basket. Yes, throwing them…because anything round shaped is a ball.
Raising a toddler, I knew that I didn’t want to put any candy or chocolate in his eggs, the kid only just had chocolate for the first time about a month ago. I’d like to hold off on candy and chocolate treats as long as possible. So, I started brainstorming and finally decided on a few different Candy-Free Easter Egg Stuffers.

Candy-Free Easter Egg Alternatives:
- Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies
- Annie’s Bunny Grahams
- Animal Crackers
- Annie’s Animal Cookies
- Goldfish (try different flavors other than cheddar)
- Yogurt Covered Raisins
- Dried Fruit
- Blue Diamond Nuts in Toasted Coconut or Blueberry
- Dollar bills or coins (for older kids)
- Easter erasers (bunnies, carrots, eggs, chicks, etc.)
These Candy-Free Egg Stuffers don’t just have to be for toddlers. If you have older kids who enjoy egg hunts, try mixing in a few of the candy-free alternatives along with chocolates.
In my family, my parents have done Easter egg hunts for my sisters and I every year since I can remember. Even as a 33-year-old adult! And, over the years, boyfriends and husbands have joined in the fun as well. My parents have stuffed candy, chocolates, bills, and coins in the eggs every year, and as I’ve aged, the eggs with coins and bills are, hands down, my favorite to find!
I hope your kids enjoy these Candy-Free Easter Egg Stuffers. Happy Easter!
