Filling Eggs For Easter

In the section below, we’re going to be taking you through all of the ways you can fill eggs for Easter.

These can act as a good surprise for your child on Easter Sunday, or one of the many treasures they can go searching for during an Easter Egg hunt. 

Candy Fillers

In this first section, we’re going to take you through a list of candy fillers that are sure to make your toddler’s eyes go wide with amazement. Below we have also made sure to put a selection of non-candy filler ideas, in case you want them to go easy on the sugar! 

Peanut Butter 

This is probably the easiest way to get your toddler excited about Easter. Simply cut out a peanut butter sandwich and stick it inside their egg. You could even add a few jelly beans if you’d like. 

Jelly Beans 

Another great idea is to simply use jelly beans instead of candy fillers. The only difference here would be that you’d need to remove the paper backing from each bean before sticking them in. Then when your child opens up their egg, they’ll find a delicious treat waiting for them! 

Marshmallow Fluff 

This is another great option. Simply spread the marshmallow fluff onto a piece of cardboard, cut it into squares, and then insert the square into the egg. Your child will love finding a sweet treat inside their egg. 

Chocolate Chips 

A fun idea is to use chocolate chips instead of candy fillers in your eggs. Simply melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and then pour them into the egg. When your child opens up their eggs, they’ll find a yummy treat inside. 


One of my personal favorites is to use M&M’s in eggs. Simply chop up the candies and then sprinkle them into the egg. They look so cute sitting there in their little container. 

Cinnamon Toast Crunch 

This is another great idea. Simply mix cinnamon and cereal and then spoon it into the egg. It makes a nice addition to any Easter egg collection. 

Fruit Roll-Ups 

Everyone used to love fruit roll-ups as a kid. We think they taste amazing! So why not give them a try? Simply tear off pieces of fruit roll up and then stick them into the egg. 

Fruit Filling Ideas

Here, we’re going to give you a few fruit-filling ideas that would be perfect for your toddler. You could even use these ideas for any occasion where you’d like to include fruits in your kid’s treats. This can be a great way to get them excited about healthier options!

Non-Candy Fillers 

In this section, we’re going to cover some non-candy fillers, if you want your child to have something other than chocolate!

After all, Easter is a time when they will already no doubt be gifted chocolate from others, so it can be good to look for alternatives to keep their sugar levels down.


These are one of my favorite things to use with kids. They make such an easy and fun activity to do with your child. Simply take a bunch of crayons and place them inside the egg.

Then when your child gets bored of opening their egg, they can easily draw on the side of the egg. 

Colored Pencils 

Similar to using crayons, colored pencils also make a fun activity for children. Simply choose a color scheme that you both like and then start drawing on the egg.

Once again, once your child starts getting tired of opening their egg, you can easily erase what was drawn and continue coloring. 


Another fun thing to consider is socks. Kids love playing dress-up, especially during holidays. Why not incorporate this playtime into your egg decorating process by simply putting a pair of socks inside the egg.

Your child can then pretend that he or she is wearing a different outfit. 

Toy Bunnies 

As mentioned before, Easter is a holiday that revolves around bunnies. You can either make one or buy one from a store. This can be a great way to get your child involved in Easter without spending too much, as an alternative to candy!
