For Easter, I want to get the large, plastic eggs and put them in the back yard. My question is, what should I put in them? All the toys that small say not for under 3 years. My 19 month old has never eaten candy. Any ideas?

My daughter loves tattoos on her hand, those might also be a good idea for inside the easter egg too.

So glad you posted this! I was wondering what to do for my son too! This has given me a couple good ideas! Good luck and have a Happy Easter!

The other thing to remember is that at 19 months old, he doesn't know what's "supposed" to be in the eggs. For all he knows, vanilla wafers and goldfish crackers are what should be in there. I think they'll just be excited that there's something in there when they open them up.

Thanks, Susan. My sister said it would be completely lame to put vanilla wafers in there. She suggested M&M's. My son has never eaten those and I think he might choke, so I'm not doing that.

I always put some money in mine to go in my children's piggy banks, they love it. But other things that i like to put in them are stickers, little stampers, little plastic jewelry, sometimes if you get the really big ones you can take some crayons and split them into different ones also.

Our daycare put marshmallows and other soft candy like jellybeans and gummy bears in the eggs for the toddlers. Mini M&M's are my son's favorite!

We bought the large eggs and put a wind-up hoppy toy in one, split a pair of socks between two others, put a little mini ducky bubble bath squeezy in another, a mini bunny Pez dispenser (no candy) in another, and hair doodles/barrettes in another. We found all of these items at Cost Plus. They have a ton of smallish items that would work in the larger eggs. Hope this helps. :-)

I was at Target last week and I saw that they had eggs already filled with Little People Easter Characters or Sesame Street Characters!! I thought this was a great idea for the little ones!!

You'd be surprised what they think is special. My daughter doesn't eat candy either. She loves grapes though. Even though she eats grapes quite frequently, if I put them in an egg, she'd love it. As long as it's something he likes, I think he'll enjoy it. I'd go with snacks he usually eats.

That is a good idea. He likes the animal cookies and it would be a treat since I never keep them on hand. He usually eats vanilla wafers or cheerios, but I don't figure that would be too special, you know?

i was going to say the same thing heather said. there are some eggs that are pretty big and you could put a one crayon in each of them and include some coloring books in the basket.

well maybe put (gold fish, animal cookies, or what your child eats). U may want to put tape on the eggs so they stay close since you will have food in them. oh yea if u go with the food I would wash out the eggs insides.
