{No Candy} Easter Egg Activity Stuffers

Is candy over taking all of your family holiday’s? It seems we have far more candy than we will ever eat!

Time to make memories – without the crash that follows a sugar rush.   We tried to think of things that would make the kids both move and smile.

We filled our Easter Eggs with silly activities.

These activities are the brain child of my 5 year old. She says these will make her siblings laugh and that they would have the *most* fun getting to stand on one foot, or “sing like a mouse” as they pinch their nose.

I think she’s right, there was a lot of laughing.

Below is a photo of the printable. Print it out, cut the activity ideas into strips.   Fold them and stuff them into the eggs.

After writing our list we thought of a few activities that we should have included:

  • Roll across the floor
  • Clap and count as high as you can
  • Play ring-around-the-rosie
  • Give yourself a pat on the back

Do you like our “camouflage” eggs??   I love that these eggs are harder to spot than the traditional brightly colored eggs.   They are great for a hunt with older kids.

  1. I absolutely love this idea. I’ve been thinking what I can do different for Easter. My toddler doesn’t understand that there should be candy in eggs yet, so I’m going to start this. Every year he’ll get a few of these eggs. My husband will write ideas that I can be surprised with and I can write ideas that my husband can be surprised with. That way we can both wait in anticipation as my kids open them. It’s a win-win-win. I’m sure there will be plenty of laughs along the way. THANK YOU!

  2. Great idea. I’ve also seen the idea to hide puzzle pieces in the eggs. They know they found all of them when the puzzle is complete.
