We're celebrating DD's 2nd birthday on Easter this year and want to do an Easter egg hunt.¬† What are some toddler-friendly things to put in the eggs?¬† I'd love to have a food treat, but I'm obviously not going to put the M&M's or Hershey Kisses of my youth...
You can mold rice crispy treats into the plastic eggs (so when they open them they get a rice crispy treat shaped like an easter egg). ¬†If you can fit them, bunny crackers would be fun and you can get individually wrapped bags of those (same with bunny graham crackers) or rolled up fruit leathers. ¬†If you are going to do non-food (and if the kids aren't "mouthy" and apt to choke on them) little animal figures are fun (my almost 2 y/o loves small animal figures--the kind that come in the plastic tubes). ¬†
¬† Two moms and two boys enjoying the truth that love always wins!!! ¬†
The big hit last year was pre-filled play doh brand eggs, a few eggs had chocolate covered raisens and cherries, cheddar bunnies, stickers,¬† and pirate booty.
Sort of on the expensive side, but these were a huge hit with my (then) 1.5 year old last year: ¬†http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-DUPLO-World-People-Set/dp/B000N3QAT4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331102173&sr=8-1
