Allergy-Friendly Things to Put in Easter Eggs
I’ve been thinking about what to put in Easter eggs when we do an Easter egg hunt in our house this year. I considered filling some with chocolate for my daughter, but decided I didn’t want to risk Joseph finding one of those eggs and needing to take it away from him. So, while I still bought chocolate for the rest of the family to enjoy, it’s going to be separate from the eggs.
So what will I put in the eggs? So far, this is what I have:
- gummy bears
- jelly beans
- coins (Though it seems odd for Joseph to receive money when we didn’t give any to his sister until she was four. I’ll probably just get over this.)
There are a few more things I’d like to get. I was frustrated by my first look through the store, since the cars wouldn’t fit in the eggs, and the things that would fit, my toddlers wouldn’t be interested in (not to mention be choking hazards). But I can probably find the following at a dollar store or a bigger store.
- bouncy balls (I just want to get a few, since we already have some. Hmm… maybe I could sneak those from their toy box and re-gift them?)
- mini containers of bubbles (these would be a HUGE hit)
- hair bows (though I don’t know if I want to keep things gender neutral or not. I suppose I could steer Joseph away from the pink/purple eggs or just have them trade)
- toy animals
What are you doing to make Easter safe and enjoyable for your family?
