It might surprise you to know that out of all of the holidays, Americans spend the most money on candy for Easter than they do for any other holiday. Yes, even Halloween. Even Valentine’s Day.
With Easter baskets, Easter egg hunts and chocolate bunnies, kids will have enough candy as it is this year. That’s why you should seek out more unique egg fillers to surprise Easter egg hunters.
When it comes to choosing egg fillers, you need to make sure they are small enough to fit in the eggs you choose. Also, bulk options make it easy to fill a large amount of eggs at a small price. Lucky for you, we have a list of prizes that fit both of these qualifications!
Stickers – Rolls of stickers tear apart and fit in almost any size Easter egg. Choose the theme that you know your hunters will love!
Silicone Bracelets – Silicone bracelets and wristbands wrap around and coil until they are small enough to fit inside an egg. There are styles for every child (or adult, we won’t tell if you join the hunt too).
Small toys like: Mini High Bounce Critter Balls, Mini Rainbow Springs, Sticky Slingshot Ninja Shooters, and Alien Parachutists would be an exciting surprise for any Easter egg hunter

While preparing for Halloween and a night of trick-or-treating with the kids, it is important to consider the safety precautions both you and your children should take to ensure it is a fun and safe night to remember!
Always travel in groups – Young children especially should be with an adult at all times. While older children may not require supervision, they should not trick or treat alone!
Opt for face paint instead of masks – This keeps children’s vision unobscured the way a mask might. Make sure to test the makeup or paint ahead of time to make sure there is no skin reaction.
Try: Crayon Costume Makeup; Glow-in-the-Dark Face Paint; Halloween 4 Color Makeup; Black Cream Makeup.
Stay lit – wear reflective clothing, a flashlight or a glow stick at all times! Once the sun goes down, you and your children will still be able to find each other.
Try: 22” Glow Necklaces; Giant Light Sticks; Mini Neon Flashlights.
Use Safe Costume Accessories – accessories like swords and other weapons can be dangerous. They should be made of soft materials like foam or rubber. This way, if the child falls they will not hurt themselves on their accessories.
Try: Foam Fun Swords; Mini Sword Inflates;
Check the kids’ candy – before the kids go crazy on their candy from the night, briefly look through the candy they received to make sure there is nothing opened, homemade or unwrapped. You might even take this opportunity to steal a piece or two… 😉
The trick-or-treating ritual is all about costumes, candy and that creepy Halloween spirit! But if you’re looking for a healthier option, or just something more unique to hand out to trick-or-treaters, look no further.
