      Thanks Angelica. I was afraid it was too late for most people. But then there are always people like me who put these things off until the last minute : ) So I decided to share anyway.

    What a great list! I never even thought of a lot of those! And nice job with the Picmonkey image. 🙂

      Thanks Gena. I had fun making the graphic. Made me want to see what else I could do : ) It took me quite some time to realize how many things would fit inside a plastic egg. But once I did, I was on the hunt!

    We don’t do Easter egg hunts either, at least not on Easter. We do it after the Easter holiday. I do offer my children candy (although I prefer items from your list), because they rarely get to eat candy and since we don’t celebrate Halloween either, I figure this is the one time I should let them have that pleasure. 🙂

      Clara, we don’t do Halloween either. However, I inherited an unbelievable sweet tooth from my grandfather. Thus after holidays, Halloween, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, etc. I try to make a trip to the store and buy candy when it is half-off : ) Even then, I eat most of it. We don’t completely avoid sugar in our home. I just prefer moderation spread out over time instead of getting your fill for the year in one setting…lol

    We eat pretty much sugar free in our house and do a lot of sugar free cooking.
    Thanks for all the fantastic ideas X

    My sister can’t eat sugar at the moment, but they sound like good alternatives!

    We dye hard-boiled eggs (partly because my daughter has a major sweet tooth, and like you I don’t want to bring in that many treats at once,) but your list is a really great idea. I may try that next year. Thanks for the good ideas!

    I think having an egg hunt for a spring birthday is a fabulous idea! Great ideas for your egg fillers. I can tell that you put a lot of thought into it. I never thought about an eye patch before. How fun!

    Thank you so much for linking-up at Beauty Observed last week! It was very nice to have you!

    This blog post is a great help. Even though it’s too late when I found this post, this will surely help me in finding ways to have non sugar egg fillers. I had an experience way back two years ago when my son joined Easter egg hunt in a neighborhood’s compound. When one child has eaten a very sugary egg filler that cause her juvenile diabetes to level up, he was rushed to the hospital and thank God he was okay. Now, in our home owners meeting, we agreed that in conducting Easter egg hunts, we should be more vigilant and careful so that the incident won’t happen anymore. Thus, this article will certainly be a big help for us. Thanks 🙂
