Wondering what the heck to put into Easter eggs for your infant or toddler? Here are my favorite Easter egg fillers for babies + toddlers.
Easter egg hunts are something that I really looked forward to doing with small kids.
An eight year old doing an easter egg hunt? Not that cute.
A eighteen month old toddling towards eggs? Precious!
But, traditional easter egg fillers are things like jelly beans and other small, chokey, candy type items.
This stuff is usually choking hazards and almost always age inappropriate for infants.
So, whether you are planning for the easter bunny to bring your own kids or forced to send a plastic easter egg for each kid in the daycare class (facepalm), here are some easter egg fillers for toddlers to inspire you.
Be very mindful of choking at this age. Anything that can fit in an easter egg is a choking hazard and should only be handled with extreme supervision.
