While candy is a classic choice for filling Easter eggs, there are plenty of alternative options that can make your Easter egg hunt unique, more exciting, and diverse. I personally love filling our plastic eggs with custom tattoos made by artists on Etsy, custom stickers I have created from my own child’s artwork, beads to make bracelets from, and of course rainbow crayons!
