If the idea of your child getting way too much sugar on Easter morning makes your teeth ache, here are some alternatives when it comes time to filling their Easter eggs.
Raisins or Craisins
Coins (for older children)
Tubes of flavored lip balm
Band-Aids (my kids treat these like gold)
Polly Pocket Clothes
Batteries (It may sound odd, but in my family when batteries run out in toys, we often don’t replace them too quickly. They love it when they get batteries and can re-activate their swirling, lighted toys – you know, the one that Grandma & Grandpa bought at the circus!)
Little Pet Shop Characters
Puzzle Pieces (then go finish the puzzle as a family)
Legos or K’Nex
Sponge capsules that grow in the bath
