100 Things to Put in Plastic Eggs That Aren’t Candy

plastic eggsI love making little treasures fit inside the space of a plastic Easter egg.  I am not opposed to candy altogether, but I find that my children really don’t eat much candy anyway. So I’ve created this list of 100 things to put inside Easter eggs that are not candy. Some of these items will require the larger sized plastic egg. Some may need to be taken out of the packaging.
